Vaillant provided their aroTHERM air-to-water heat pump with buffer cylinder and domestic hot water cylinder, for Goulden Simpson Ltd at their St Peters Court development, Shropshire.
Goulden Simpson Ltd have recently constructed a trio of energy-efficient properties in Shropshire using Vaillant’s heat pump technology.
Designed with the comfort of occupants in mind, it was imperative the traditional British-style properties had a heating system to match.
Each property at St Peters Court is powered by a Vaillant aroTHERM heat pump which takes heat from the outside air and turns it into hot water for central heating and domestic hot water.
Heat pumps deliver heat at low temperatures over much longer periods than traditional gas boilers, which, together with the integration of Vaillant controls, means they are more efficient and are less likely to overheat a well-insulated new build property, adding to further savings on energy bills in addition to reducing unnecessary energy consumption.
Taking into consideration the style and location of the properties, flexible hoses and anti-vibration feet were installed by Edwards Contractors, in accordance with MCS MIS 3005 and the primary pipework was suitably sized to ensure correct flow across the heat pump.
The heat pumps were also positioned as close to the properties as possible to reduce pressure and energy loss.
To comply with HSE Code of Practice, Vaillant’s weather compensated controls ensure the water content of the cylinder is heated to a temperature of 60°C for one hour every day as well as making sure the heat pump always performs at maximum efficiency to minimise energy consumption.
