NIBE ground source heat pump transforms Whitton Lodge holiday home
Whitton Lodge has a lot to offer anyone visiting the quiet Chesterfield countryside; the holiday home features three kitchen areas, nine en-suite double rooms and sleeps a total of twenty-six.
However, whilst all that space offers plenty of room for holidaymakers, it has long led to huge energy bills for its owners. John Powell, who lives with his family in a 3-bed bungalow on site, decided to tackle this downfall by switching away from direct electric. His search began for a renewable energy heating system.
Owner John Powell quickly discovered NIBE Energy Systems upon his search for low carbon heating options. With plenty of garden space surrounding the property, a single Ground Source Heat Pump was established as an ideal solution for heating both the lodge and the bungalow.
Newark-based heat pump specialists, Trusted Energy Solutions, took care of the installation and chose a powerful 40 kW F1345 Ground Source Heat Pump to meet the total annual heat demand (110,021 kWh) the large property requires.
This was installed and connected to 2500 linear meters of ground collector pipe on the land surrounding the property. Underfloor heating and new radiators were also installed to increase efficiency and maximise comfort and warmth.
Trusted Energy Solutions were able to complete the installation in just two weeks during July 2020. The Powells are already enjoying the benefits of a comfortable living environment and saving a significant amount on their energy bills at over £7,000 a year.
This will be complimented further by regular cashback payments once their Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) application is finalised. Guests at Whitton lodge will now be able to enjoy eco-friendly indoor warmth all year round. Dan Wilson, Trusted Energy’s Sales and Marketing Director said, “Utilising the latest technology from NIBE, the heat pump system is designed to meet the heaviest demands the holiday home can throw at it in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way, whilst delivering low running costs – mission accomplished!”
Property owner John Powell is delighted with his decision to invest in a NIBE Ground Source Heat Pump: “I’m very satisfied. It’s so easy to use and I don’t have to touch it; I just leave it alone and it sets everything to an ambient temperature. It’s warm when you get out of bed in the morning and just maintains the right temperature throughout the day.”
