Case Study Specifications

The Old School House when we arrived in early Jan 2023 was a cold and damp E EPC rated property. We started by pulling out all the old Storage Heaters and laid all downstairs a Slimfix 18 Underfloor Heating System into a Twin Salus Manifold system. We installed a Mitsubishi Ecodan 14KW Air Source Heat Pump with Ready Plumbed Mitsubishi Storage Tank.

On completion with all the modifications taken place the Old School House achieved a C EPC rating and 80% reduced Energy from the old storage heaters.

Testimonial

The Old School house needed some TLC, it had a very poor EPC rating and totally inefficient storage heaters which didn’t even warm the building. Keith designed a system for the Old School House which allowed the building to keep all of its characteristics. Keith and team installed a state of the art underfloor and air source heating system. We are so pleased with the system and is now saving us loads on our energy bills. Keith and Team were totally professional and would highly recommend them.
