About Harrogate Hydro case study

North Yorkshire based Harrogate Hydro provides leisure facilities to the Harrogate community and has 800 full time members. Three swimming pools offer a range of activities and Brimham’s fitness centre with its state of the art fitness equipment has a purpose built dance studio and changing rooms.


The challenge

Harrogate Council was aware that the nature of the complex and overall size of the building warranted air conditioning. “Our priority at the Hydro is to maintain a comfortable environment for all our customers” comments Andy McCulloch, Group Engineer at Harrogate Council. “Our major concern was to find a reliable, appropriate air conditioning system which would keep a cool, constant temperature within the building.”


Airedale solution

  • Airedale’s Packaged Air Cooled Liquid Chiller (ACCS60D) was installed with the non ozone-depleting refrigerant R407C.

  • CHILLERGUARD® Maintenance Programme

  • Harrogate Council have support from qualified Airedale technicians whether it be over the phone, on the help desk or, should the need arise, calling an engineer out on site.

“We were very pleased with the professional commissioning provided by Airedale after the units were installed and especially interested to learn of their Chillerguard® maintenance programme.”
