Air Source Heat Pump
South of Stoke-On-Trent in a town called Chebsey, Kirtex Builders were looking to make their on-site park cottage more sustainable by investing in renewable energy. They were passed onto Hero through a previous customer who had a renewable heating installed by ourselves and believe that we would be able to help Kirtex Builder’s become more environmentally friendly.
Following an initial enquiry at the end of October in 2018 from Kirtex Builders, they spoke with our commercial team and then subsequently sent over their plans and drawings that they had for the on-site property. Our team wasted no time, measuring and calculating the heat requirements and energy efficiency of the property, including other factors such as the space available and the budget of the business for the project. We looked at the current energy performance certificate, which was rated an F and believe that installing a renewable heating system would take the property to a D rating, which is the average energy rating and score for a property in England.
Our team completed a full feasibility study, with anticipated performance and running costs alongside a renewable heat incentive schedule, providing the business with the figures required to make an informed decision on whether they wanted to move forward with the project.
After agreeing and signing the contact, our engineers got to work on the property and installed a Mitsubishi Ecodan 8.5kW Air source heat pump outdoor unit with a manifold that connected to the radiators within property that emitted the heat. Once the system was installed and tested, it was then commissioned on the 12th April 2019.
As far as business investments go, Renewable Energy technologies are hard to beat. Companies in the UK are always looking to reduce costs and increase turnover. Installing renewable energy is a fantastic way to improve your company’s green credentials, protect yourself from rising energy costs and invest in our future.
