Homebuilding & Renovating - - The Brief Ground Source Heat Pumps -

As part of an ex­ten­sive ren­o­va­tion project, the own­ers of this farm con­verted nine old barns and crum­bling out­build­ings into do­mes­tic dwellings , each fea­tur­ing their own GSHP in­side each prop­erty, which are in­de­pen­dently con­trolled and billed. Each heat pump (from Kensa’s new Evo Se­ries) is con­nected to bore­hole pipework in the ground, cre­at­ing a ‘mi­cro’ district heat­ing sys­tem. This district con­fig­u­ra­tion qual­i­fies the heat pump in­stal­la­tion for 20 years of guar­an­teed quar­terly in­come through the Gov­ern­ment’s Non Do­mes­tic Re­new­able Heat In­cen­tive (RHI), more than off­set­ting the cost of the work, and pro­vid­ing a gen­er­ous re­turn on in­vest­ment.
