Domestic, New-Build

Mr Moate was buying a new build 4-bedroom home just North West of Exeter city. He was referred to Hero by a previous customer, which lead Mr Moate to get in contact with ourselves and arrange a meeting with our new-build team to discuss all the possible options for his new home.

After looking at the drawing plans for the property, our team believed that if Mr Moate wanted his home to be control by renewable then an air source heat pump system combined with a Solar PV and Underfloor heating system with a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system would be perfect for the property.

Once we provided Mr Moate with a quotation for each system, he then agreed for the project to go forward on his new-build home in the Summer of 2019. Our engineers wasted no time and got work on the property just a few days after Mr Moate joined the Hero family. Our team installed an 8.5kW Mitsubishi Ecodan outdoor unit with an FTC 5 controller, unvented 250-litre hot water cylinder and low loss header.

Once installed test and connected to the underfloor heating system. The team then installed a 20 Longi Solar Mono All Black Solar PV system with a Solis Dual 6kW single-phase inverter along with the mechanical ventilation heat recovery system.

After our team installed and commissioned each system, it allowed Mr Moate to claim on the government incentives that he was eligible for, including the renewable heat incentive for his new air source heat pump and at the time the feed-in-tariff for his solar PV system. Within our initial quotations that we gave to Mr Moate, there was a breakdown of the renewable heat incentive and the feed-in-tariff, which included the amount of payments he should receive and a date on. When he should see a return on his initial investment for the systems.
