The customer approached us 4 months prior to the installation date seeking advice on a more sustainable, financially viable heating system.
JM’s Renewable Solution
After conducting a free site survey and collaborating with the owner of the house we narrowed down the technologies to either a ground source heat pump or an air source heat pump. With the customers long-term goals in mind, we presented a comparison of the two technologies, explaining the benefits of both systems and then we gave our final recommendations.
Consequently, it was decided that we would install a 12 KW NIBE Ground Source Heat Pump using a horizontal loop system. This system was deemed more feasible since the customer had enough land to lay the necessary pipework. (1 acre minimum is required).
The system was used to heat and supply hot water to a 4 bedroom detached house and was connected to new stelrad radiators installed throughout the house.
