Heat pump case studies

The UK is committed to reducing the amount of carbon emitted from our homes by one third over the next ten years through producing 15% of our energy through renewable technologies such as Air Source Heat pumps. The Government has recently confirmed it is developing new initiatives for homeowners. The ‘Green Deal’ and Renewable Heat Initiative will help provide the financial incentives to improve the energy efficiency in our homes. Heat pumps, such as the Daikin Altherma range qualify for an £850 premium payment grant and from autumn 2013 will also qualify for a payment per unit of heat produced, which means homeowners can receive money for generating their own heat.

Kington Magna, Gillingham, Dorset.

This 220 Msq house is set in the beautiful Blackmore vale area of Dorset, located on top of the hill at the village of Kington Manga with far reaching views across the countryside. The property owners were looking to reduce their fuel cost as the existing boiler was a very inefficient LPG cast iron boiler with a

annual fuel cost of around £1700. 

Dorset Energy Solutions were asked to provide a more efficient system that would be a replacement for the customers existing boiler. The Daikin Altherma high temperature system was selected due to the high output flow temperatures of up 80 degrees Celsius and the ability to heat retrofit properties efficiently at very low outside temperatures.

The system has now been installed for nearly two years, the first years running cost was £950.00 for all heating and hot water, providing an annual saving of £750.00 and the second year is expected to be around £790.00
