Air Source Heat Pumps – Perfect for a New Build

Air Source Heat Pump Installation at Craig Cefn Parc, Swansea, Wales

Craig Cefn Parc is a small tranquil village located just north of the M4 surrounding Swansea. It boarders the beautiful Mawr ward which is ideally located for walking enthusiasts who still want to be close to the city of Swanea. Some of the houses in Craig Cefn Parc have access to mains gas, however many don’t due to the village being well spread out.

The Problem and its Solution:
Limitless Energy were asked to design, install and commission a Renewable Heating System for a domestic client building their new 5 bedroom 4 bathroom dream home in Craig Cefn Parc. With the customers having little knowledge on renewable heating systems they were pleased that we could take the stress out of their hands to design and install the perfect system for them and their home.

To determine the heating and hot water demand we conducted a full room by room heat loss calculation so that we knew the requirement for each area within the house. Limitless Energy selected to install a split Panasonic 12kW T-Cap Air Source Heat Pump, 300l Unvented Hot Water cylinder and full underfloor heating on the ground and the first floor. The option for a split unit was taken so that the outdoor collection unit could be positioned a considerable distance from the house to improve aesthetics and acoustics.

The Benefits:
The customer now has a trouble free virtually silent heating and hot water system which can operate with efficiencies of around 370%. They have complete control over the temperature of their house and receive 7.51p per kW totalling to an annual payment of around £1,370. Their estimated savings against a fossil fuel system, and payments from the government, equate to £13,545 over the eligible 7 year RHI scheme.

UK Beats Solar Generation Record in March

Long May this Weather Continue!

This excellent spring weather is doing the world of good for the planet. While we are all enjoying the sun for BBQ’s, walks and swims, the UK’s solar panel world is breaking records for production of renewable energy.

A sunny weekend in March meant that solar power produced 6 times more electricity than coal fired power stations. As this weather continues we’re sure that more records will be broken.
