Part of the Trinity Care group, St. Peter’s Nursing Home is purpose built and set in quiet grounds on the outskirts of Castlebellingham Village, Co. Louth. The home is situated within walking distance of the local shops, post office and church.
Eco Life Energy designed and installed a Hybrid Heating Hub to take over the production of hot water for the Space Heating and DHW in the nursing home. The Eco Life Hub replaced existing oil boilers in the plant room which were inefficient and replaced them with a system using heat pumps backed up by LPG gas boilers.

Carbon Footprint at the site will be reduced by an estimated 44% year on year thus helping St Peter’s to meet the National Energy Efficiency Plan (NEEP 2020) guidelines which require a reduction of 20% in energy usage by 2020.
Primary Energy usage at the site will be reduced by an estimated 54% year on year.
Projected Savings in energy costs shows a system payback of circa 5 years. This does not take into account the savings made by reduced maintenance costs due to the installation of new plant. It also does not take into account the potential future increase in savings caused by a rise in inflation, the need to replace old plant or the cost of energy.
