Cherry Tree Cottage is a 90m2 semi-detached old solid stone property located in Coberley, in the heart of the Cotswolds. The property is due to be extended later this year, which was accounted for at the design stage, so the heat pump can cover the additional future load.
(Example): A large country farmhouse in the heart of Wiltshire. With no access to mains gas, the default option for this customer was oil. With space to exploit and 40% savings to be made on their energy bill by switching to a renewable fuel option, this customer saw a ground source heat pump as the perfect investment to heat their home.
A 10kW Midea Air Source Heat Pump was installed with an unvented hot water cylinder, which supplies all of the heating and hot water demand for the property. In order to maximise the efficiency of the system, we upgraded 50% of the radiators in the property. This caused little disruption as the width of the radiators remained the same but were made taller or deeper where necessary.
The homeowner is now benefitting from the financial and carbon savings from replacing their aging oil boiler, as well as the bonus advantage of improved water pressure thanks to the unvented hot water cylinder.
