Heating: 11kW Vaillant Air Source Heat Pump.
Hot Water: 250 Litre Joule heat pump compatible cylinder, iBoost immersion diverter.
Power: 4kWp Solar Photovoltaic system with Solis inverter.
The conversion property is in an off gas grid area which meant that traditional heating systems would have to be either oil, LPG or solid fuel fired. Mr & Mrs P chose to install an Air Source Heat Pump instead of a traditional fossil fuel system. This means that they do not have to monitor an oil or LPG tank to ensure that they have sufficient fuel to power the heating and hot water system for their home.
The Air Source Heat Pump also offered a significant financial saving over the oil system by way of the Renewable Heat Incentive subsidisation scheme. They also opted for the convenience and comfort of underfloor heating throughout the single story dwelling. Underfloor Heating is not only a functionally more comfortable method of heating your home but as the system runs on lower flow temperatures (the temperature of the water flowing around they heating pipe work) it means that the air source Heat Pump is working at its most efficient which offers greater savings on their energy bills.
This coupled with the iBoost immersion diverter (a fully automated device used to divert excess solar energy to the immersion heater to provide domestic hot water) mean that the couple’s choice of system will make them almost self-sufficient.
