Installation of Mitsubishi air conditioning heat-pump on the Queens College Barge, Oxford (21/01/12)


Orion air conditioning and refrigeration ltd has complete the installation of a  Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air Conditioning Wall air conditioning heat-pump heating system on the Queens College Barge which is now a private house boat for a well known television broadcaster. The wall unit was installed in the bedroom area of the barge which was being heated by low efficiency fan heaters. This type of heating is expensive to run in comparison to heat pumps which can be up to 5 times more efficient.


History of the Queens College Barge, Oxford:


The Queens College Barge was a bit of history from the late 19 century with some unique characteristic such as the eagles head on the front. The barge was used for the Queens college rowing team up to the 1960's where it was used as a viewing point for watching the rowing races of the day. Some pictures can be found dating back to the 1890's on race days. It was now moored on a beautiful bank of the river Thames close to Oxford town centre with some amazing views of the river and its wildlife.




What air conditioning heat-pump was installed:


1 x  Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air Conditioning SRK28-HG wall mounted (2.8 kW 9000 Btu) Heat pump which provided enough heating for the area at a fraction of the cost of direct electric heaters. The cooling element of the air conditioning unit also makes it useful for summer use when the house boat can get very hot. For more information on heat-pump inverters look here.
