On Monday 16th March 2020 two Heat Pumps were installed at the REAST Clubrooms.
We thank the Tasmanian Community Fund for their generous grant donation of over $5,000 that enabled this to happen.
We thank Scott Hutchins VK7HVK and his dedicated team who installed these units following the successful TCF grant application to make the REAST clubrooms much more energy efficient.
We also thank the heritage team from the Hobart City Council for their assistance on the placement of the external units to maintain the heritage value of this historic building.
There is a large unit in the main clubroom and a smaller unit for the operating room and DATV Studio.

These units will greatly increase the energy efficiency of the clubrooms and lower our power bill. They replace the three 3kW resistive fan heaters. They will also provide cooling in summer as well as heating in winter.
A huge thank you to the Tasmanian Community Fund, Scott Hutchins and Team, and the Heritage and Asset Management Teams at the Hobart City Council.
