Design

We produce a clear specification of how much heat and hot water the building needs by completing a CIBSE room by room heat loss analysis from the plans. With new builds and renovations, space heating demand is reducing, and hot water consumption is increasing. The heating system is a key part of the building design process. 

We recommend renewable heating solution that balances future energy savings for the client, with the proposed construction and project budget 

Supply

We provide air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps, heat battery storage and MVHR, together with radiators, underfloor heating or direct electric heating. We can also integrate solar PV or solar thermal to the system if required.

Commission

This is critical to deliver a successful solution. Heat pumps require a much more detailed configuration and testing process than a traditional boiler, to ensure they are able to operate as designed.

Heating circuits need to be purged of air, and the water flow be fully balanced to ensure heat can be efficiently delivered around the building. Controls for the both the heat pump and distribution system must be reviewed and tested. The heating distribution controls may need to be reconfigured to deliver the desired room temperatures. Configuration with solar PV panels and battery storage add to the complexity.

Only by completing this thorough process, will the system meet the heating needs at maximum efficiency and lowest heating costs.

The MCS certification and building control notification is then completed to ensure a successful application for the RHI tariff payments and comply with local building control.

Client testimonials

  • "Thanks for organising everything. Luke was great."

    Mandy Lindsay, Cornwall
  • “We've had an air-source heat pump designed and installed by Abode Heat for our office providing very low cost heating. The heat pump costs are further reduced when using free electricity from our solar panels so a great pairing! Its great to be able to show our clients the benefits of implementing renewable heat as part of their build on-site”

    Nathan Davis, Arco2
  • "Thanks for all your help so far at Westholme on our latest project, Ali & Luke are a great gang to work with."
