Little Downham, Ely, Cambridgeshire
Mr & Mrs Newton had spent some time searching for a property in the Cambridgeshire area before finding their new home in Little Downham. With amazing views overlooking Ely Cathedral, a beautiful village location (with two pubs) and a large amount of space in and around the house, it is easy to see why the Newton family chose this charming house.
The property had great potential and first on the list was to upgrade the 1960’s skirt board heating and storage heaters. Mr and Mrs Newton spent a lot of time researching different options and with an eye on their future they decided to opt for a renewable heating solution.
Mr & Mrs Newton aimed to use as many local companies as possible and were pleased to find Eco Installer in a neighbouring village who offered different renewable options.
Shane visited the family home and discussed various solutions which included the installation of a biomass boiler or an air source heat pump. After looking at both systems, Mr and Mrs Newton decided to go with a NIBE 16kW air source heat pump due to its efficiency and energy savings.
The installation of the heat pump, pipe work and radiators took our engineers just two weeks. The water cylinder, buffer tank and controls were installed in a tucked away area in the garage. And the heat pump sits neatly at the side of the house.
The heat pump now provides all the family’s heating and hot water whilst producing a return from the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for every kWh of energy produced.
As part of the upgrade, we installed a pressured cylinder which has considerably improved the water pressure. Mr Newton recently gave one of the bathrooms a face-lift and is delighted with how much improvement there has been.
Mr & Mrs Newton are delighted with their new heating system. They now have constant warmth throughout the house, there are no longer any damp patches or condensation on the windows. Mrs Newton looks forward to enjoying a cosy winter. We look forward to seeing how the property progresses.
