The Greener Group were contacted in 2016 by a couple who were looking to undertake a full renovation of an old bedroom property in the Woolton area of Liverpool. A large extension was proposed at the same time as gutting the entire property. Whilst such large alterations were being done they were interested in future proofing the building by installing cost saving renewable energy technologies.
Initial discussions allowed us to run through the project with the client and gain an understanding of their requirements. We then came back with a range of possible options and explained how they could integrate with the proposed development.
Following a couple of site visits to the property and a trips out to see some existing systems the clients had settled on an Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) to provide heating and hot water, underfloor heating in the new extension, energy efficient radiators in the existing property and an in roof solar PV system to meet some of the electricity demand.
The Heating System – A 16kW NIBE ASHP was installed outside the property and provides 100% of the property’s heating and hot water requirements. A 400 litre hot water cylinder was installed in the new utility room along with a 100 litre buffer vessel, control unit and plumbing ancillary items.
The Underfloor Heating (UFH) – UFH was installed throughout the large new extension. Prowarm pipe at 150mm centres allows the heat to radiate efficiently and provide a lovely feeling throughout. The large open plan area is controlled of a wifi enabled Heatmiser Thermostat.
Energy Efficient Radiators – New pipework and radiators were installed throughout the existing property. Following a detailed heat loss assessment radiators were sized to suit. Some rooms required Stelrad K3 triple panel radiators, others K2 double panel. The client also selected stylish chrome towel radiators for the bathrooms.
The Greener Group have been installing a suite of renewable energy products since 2010 and have gained a wealth of experience over the years. Working with clients to guide and inform, we take a project from design to completion. If you are considering a one or several technologies for your property please get in touch to discuss the project.
