A well planned and engineered installation using an air source heat pump designed for the UK climate means that a property built in the 1860′s is now much more energy efficient and comfortable for it’s Scottish owners.
Enviko, at their Inverurie branch, installed the equipment in January 2013. The property had previously utilized a ground source heat pump in order to provide it’s full heating load. Unfortunately, for the homeowner, the ground source heat pump needed to be replaced with a correct air source heat pump specification.
The customers search for increased energy efficiency began in 2008 with the installation of the GSHP. In 2010 as a next level fit, the emitter circuit within the property was replaced with radiators sized for a much lower flow temperature than the boiler the GSHP replaced.
In late 2012, the decision was taken to isolate the ground source heat pump from the heating system and replace it with a suitably designed air source heat pump system. Ross Gourlay, Service and Projects Manager at Enviko, oversaw the installation. Ross commented: “The equipment was installed in a bitterly cold, second week in January. The adverse weather conditions only cemented our confidence that the Samsung Air Source Heat Pumps, supplied by Solfex Energy Systems, are perfect for the job, even up here in Aberdeenshire”.
Chris Higgs, National Heat Pump Sales and Technical Manager at Solfex Energy Systems, added: “This installation really highlights the fact that air source heat pumps are perfect for the UK climate. A below freezing MCS compliant installation will ensure that the homeowners benefit greatly for years to come.”
The client is now benefiting from 28% reduction in fuel costs by using the highly efficient unit.
