Air Source Heat Pumps – Thorpe on the Hill Village Hall - Air Source Heat Pumps
About The Project
Thorpe on the Hill Parish Council were looking to increase the energy efficiency of it’s Oliver Roper Parish Meeting Room with the installation of an air source heat pump.
Chris Martin, the Parish Council Chairman contacted us after finding our company website in his local internet search results for an Air Source Heat Pump installer.
The original heating had been provided using an old oil boiler, which The Parish Council were concerned about oil prices, potential oil theft as well as wanting to take advantage of their 8kw solar PV system and the electricity it was generating.
The PV system will provide much of the electricity required to run the heat pump and we also installed an immerSUN to integrate with the PV system and utilise any unused electric to heat their hot water cylinder.
The existing boiler was removed and replaced with a 9kw High-Performance Panasonic air source heat pump system to the rear of the building. After making good the hole, we upgraded some of the radiators that were undersized for the building, power flushed the system and installed a filter to protect the system.
Prior to installing this system the heating oil bills for the village hall were £1,000 per annum. Now with the Panasonic ASHP this has been reduced by about 50% compared to oil.
The RHI payments over 20 years could be approximately up to £9,000.
