The owners of this Georgian property decided to move from the existing oil boiler to a new greener alternative.
The main house and annex of this substantial size property have been fully refurbished internally but the heating system had not seen improvements for many years. Following discussions with the owners and a detailed heat loss analysis of the property, the decision was made to preserve the grounds of the property and install a 30kW Nibe ground source heat pump with 9 boreholes.
To minimise disruption, the boreholes are located beneath the gravel drive and the plant room was re-located to the basement of the main house. The annex property, whilst smaller, could also be heated from the single 30kW Three Phase Nibe heat pump by way of a pre-insulated underground pipe.
The heating distribution system was upgraded for the heat pump installation. New hot water cylinders were installed in both properties to ensure ample hot water would be available 24/7.
This was followed by the groundworks and header pipe installation. Finally, our team of engineers prepared the 3_phase electrical supply extension to the new plant location and the equipment was brought in and placed in the basement.
The property has a highly efficient, renewable heating system for both the main house and annex that will operate for many years to come. The whole installation is now hardly noticeable from the outside of the property with just a single manhole cover to show.
