Eco friendly heating system & solar technology for home in Whitchurch
The team at Princes LHS have just finished the design & installation of an air source heat pump & solar array at this property in Whitchurch.
The customer got in touch with us for an assessment to see how installing an air source heat pump could benefit them. They were currently fully reliant on a condensing gas boiler. Following our technical survey & EPC assessment we calculated that by installing a 16KW Samsung air source heat pump the customer could save in excess of £10,000.00 over a 7 year RHI period!
We also advised the customer that a hybrid set up would be beneficial, so in this instance the existing relatively new gas boiler was to stay in place & the system will automatically switch over from the heat pump in the event that the temperature drops below 2 degrees celcius. This meant that the customer did not need to upgrade all of their radiators & kept disruption to a minimum, plus there is always the option to remove the gas boiler in the future & allow the heat pump to provide all of the heating requirements.
Our customer also decided to go ahead with the installation of 5.58KW Solar PV system complete with a fully intergrated Tesla Powerwall home battery to store clean energy for use at any time, & a Myenergi eddi energy management system to divert excess power from the PV to the hot water system. Excess energy can also be exported back to the grid to save the customer even more on their energy bill!
We’re really happy with how this installation has turned out & more importantly so is our customer who has already started saving on their energy bills & significantly reducing their carbon footprint!
