VO4HOME Ltd, developer and manufacturer of the innovative range of voltage optimisations systems, has completed the installation of a 3 Phase system at a prestigious, award winning new build property in Blackpool.

Just a few miles away from Blackpool’s world renowned golden sands, Lavender Lodge recently won ‘Best Individual Dwelling’ in the prestigious LABC Built in Quality awards for the North West region. The property has 7 bedrooms, a cinema, gymnasium, indoor swimming pool, remotely controlled lighting, ventilation, heating and blinds, as well as a media centre piping entertainment to every room.

To ensure the property is economical to run, the developer Melrose Developments Ltd carefully researched the sustainable options available. The outcome is a house that boasts a solar panel array, two large solar thermal panels, which contribute greatly to the heating of the pool, heat recovery systems and a ground source heat pump.

12 months after the owners moved into the property, a VO4HOME solution has now been installed to further reduce electricity use and to ensure the equipment is adequately shielded from the local voltage of 245V.

Melrose Developments commented about the installation: “It took barely an hour to see the benefits of installing a VO4HOME 3 Phase unit. We monitor all the energy use and immediately recognised  a 13% energy saving on electricity consumption. However, it’s not just about the energy saving, the high voltage at the site was making all the electronic equipment vulnerable to overheating. The VO4HOME system has radically reduced the risk. The installation has resulted in immediate savings in energy consumption and a substantial reduction in electricity costs.”

Geoff Clifton, business development manager of VO4HOME commented: “The VO4HOME 3 Phase system is not just being adopted by large home owners, but by small hotels and leisure clubs that face many of the same challenges as this superb house. VO4HOME has also helped SMEs as diverse as retailers and caterers, surgeries and clinics, to reduce their energy bills and cut their carbon footprint.”

VO4HOME‘s voltage optimisation systems can help achieve substantial power and carbon savings, are easy to install and incredibly cost-effective. The company’s range of products – including the 100Amp 3 phase unit and the compact single phase unit – are amongst the most innovative solutions on the market.
