Samsung Air Source Heat Pump replaces electric storage heater in Llanpumsaint
Property Type and Location
This detached bungalow in Llanpumsaint ran on electric storage heaters. Despite the high levels of insulation the system wasn't efficient and very expensive to run. The owner yearned for a proper heating system with a full radiator circuit.
Birds’ Hill Solution
Grant initially looked for a biomass boiler but due to the insulation levels the heat pump was a better method of heating with lower running costs.
New Renewable Heating System Benefits
The pump is efficient and cost effective.
Compared to the electric storage heaters the running costs are very low
It is clean and easy to manage
Payments from the RHI (UK Governmental Renewable Heating Incentive scheme) will more cover the cost of the installation and contribute to the running of the system.
In order to make the bungalow warm and cosy at last we also installed a full radiator circuit with radiators in every room.
