Client: Mrs Kathy Millward
Project: Manor Court, Offord
Contract Period: 6 Weeks
Scope of Works: Remove existing heating system, installation of an Air Source Heat Pump along with all pipework, cylinders, radiators and underfloor heating.
Key Challenges: After having visualized the external unit, the client wasn’t happy with the proposed position, as it would be seen from the conservatory from inside the house. The client had requested that the unit be located at the back of the garage, which was at the back of the garden, nearly 20m away from the house. This presented both design and installation challenges.
Solution: Through a prompt re-design, we were able to offer an engineered solution. This did result in a larger ASHP unit but was able to accommodate the project heating and hot water requirements. In order to relocate the unit at the back of the garden, we had to run all primary pipework within the ground in a new service trench. This was done using Uponor’s Ecoflex pre-insulated below ground pipework.
