Clients brief: Update the heat source for the 7000-sqft house and outdoor pool. We were then requested to refurbish 4 bathrooms creating 3 new shower rooms and a new family bathroom to a top specification.

Synergy heatsource input/solution:The old heat source for the house was a ground source heat pump which was not producing enough heat to provide heating and hot water for the end user. We specified and partnered with Ice Energy on this occasion to upgrade and update the pump installation. We had to get 3 new boreholes drilled and we found drilling them into the driveway was the easiest option. We lifted the drive paving and bored three 75m holes for the ground loops then excavated the trenches to the plant room. Installed the loops and grouted. Tested all pipe work and reinstated the driveway.

Technology: Air source heat pumps. New boilers. Twin pump set. Complete building management control system. Underfloor heating system.

Problems: None

Outcome: Client was very pleased that we able to complete this project on time and within budget.

This property qualified for a large return from the government through the Renewable Heat Incentive . This was arranged through MCS.
