Ground Source Heat Pump Installation in Worcestershire

Fed up with the rising costs of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and the volumes their heat hungry home consumed, the owners of this large rural property was looking for a cost effective solution to heating their home and keeping rising costs down. Changing from an LPG boiler system to a greener more efficient system from WDS Green Energy could not only save them up to 60% on their heating costs but could also generate an income from the Government incentive RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) scheme.

  • The Problem:

    The owners of this large rural property were spending hundreds of pounds a week keeping their home warm and so when they decided to renovate the indoor swimming pool they also decided to renovate their home heating system and approached WDS Green Energy for a cost-effective reliable solution to their heating needs, for both the main house and also for the indoor swimming pool.

    The Solution:

    WDS Green Energy installed a Dimplex SI 22 TU Ground source heat pump connected to five 90metre deep boreholes, to provide all the required heating for the swimming pool and surrounding areas and a Dimplex SIK 16 ME ground source heat pump system connected to three 90metre deep boreholes to provide all the heating for the rest of the property and to provide for all the hot water requirements including those of the swimming pool changing area.

    The Benefits:

    The newly renovated swimming pool is now nice and warm thanks to the ground source heat pump installed by WDS Green Energy. The rest of the house also benefits from its own dedicated ground source heat pump which not only provided for all the hot water requirements and keeps the property warm even in the coldest of weather but also will generate an income for the owner as it is a qualifying technology under the renewable heat incentive, a Government tariff based incentive scheme, which began in April of 2014.
    The scheme is designed to encourage the uptake of renewable technologies could generate the owner of this property up to £4,000 per year for seven years
