JM Renewables Solutions (JMRS) were appointed to undertake a full energy efficiency survey for a local business woman who lived in, and owned a B&B in the heart of Abergavenny. This particular client was very environmentally driven and wanted advice on how she could make her B&B more energy efficient. After frequent contact with the client we were invited down to conduct our consultancy survey. We sent down two of our in-house consultants and the survey of the property (210 m2) took 45-60 minutes, after which we sat down and discussed our main findings with the owner. We then produced one of our consultancy reports which detailed our main recommendations and improvements. This particular client also wanted the most sustainable form of heating available.
JM’s Renewable Solution
Upon our visit we noticed that the oil boiler was newly installed, so we both agreed on a bivalent system to avoid very high installation costs.
We recommended the installation of a 16Kw NIBE air source heat pump connected to warm water under floor heating system. The air source heat pump will provide heating to downstairs, whilst the new oil radiated system will provide heating for upstairs. The under floor heating system that was installed was completely compatible to a NIBE F2040 air source heat pump (which is able to operate at similar flow temperatures). We then designed, specified and installed the heating system which consisted of a 16Kw air source heat pump unit and a 200 L hot water cylinder, buffer tank and SMO 20 intelligent controls.
