Project DetailsProperty: New self-build, four-bedroom, detached chalet bungalow in semi-rural, coastal location
Location: Peacehaven, East Sussex
The owners: This self-build property was off the gas grid and given the increasing cost of oil, an air source heat pump offered a viable and low maintenance option that would also protect the environment. The appliance would need to take-up minimal space and be situated outdoors.
Previous heating system: New build
Technology: Installers Renewtech worked with Stiebel Eltron to select the product that would best satisfy the property owners’ requirements for hot water and heat. The WPL 15 / 25 AS heat pump was ideal. The design offers many benefits, in both new build and modernisation projects. As an outdoor installation, the appliance requires minimal space indoors and can be sited even in densely built-up areas, due to exceptionally quiet operation. These models reach an output level that enables flow temperatures of up to + 65 °C to be achieved.
