Ground Source Heat Pump with Solar PV
Master Therm and Panasonic
Underfloor Heating and Radiators
Mrs Denman wanted to ensure that her 3-bedroom bungalow she was building in Derbyshire would be heated and powered through the use of renewable energy. After finding out about Hero Renewables through our website, Mrs Denman got in touch with us to ask all of her renewable questions she had about the products we offer, and advise he on which would be most beneficial for her new-build home.
A survey was booked on the property on the 20th February in 2016, where Mrs Denman’s dedicated Renewable expert went down to Swadlincote, Derbyshire to undergo calculations on the home, enabling our team to find out what systems would be best for the home and which size would be large enough to supply heat and electricity all year round.
Mrs Denman agreed with her Renewable expert, that the combination of a Ground source heat pump with a PV system would be perfect for the home.
Our engineers went forward with the installation a few months later and installed a MasterTherm AquaMaster 7-48kW with a 500-Litre buffer tank and a 400-Litre hot water cylinder, plus a 8.57kW Panasonic HIT N Series, Black Frame Solar Panel system.
The installation of the Solar Panels went ahead on the 4th July 2016 and the new ground source heat pump was fitted in the Plant room at the rear of the property 10 days later.
The heat pump was connected to a ground collector system which compromised of 9 slinkies, 50m long connected to a manifold chamber at the beginning of the field.
The heat pump is weather compensated, which means the temperature of the UFH/radiators in the property will vary with the outside temperature i.e., when it’s cold outside, the UFH/radiators will be warmer than during milder weather conditions. Our team also installed, heating controls within the house to allow the heating to be adjusted to suite the property.
After our team of engineers, installed, tested and commissioned both the system. It meant that Mrs Denman could now generate heating and domestic hot water all year round, whilst also harvesting the sun’s energy to power her home throughout the day.
