isoenergy is mid-way through a project to design and install a renewable heating solution at a farmhouse renovation in Cambridgeshire. The brief was to significantly reduce the building's reliance on the mains gas grid which was providing all of the spatial heating, domestic hot water and pool water heating for the outdoor pool during the swimming season. The client was keen to make use of the non-domestic renewable heat incentive prior to the scheme closing as he also had other rented accommodation on the property.

Given the farmland available with the property, the best solution was to install a horizontal collector comprising of 15 x 300m collector loops in 150m trenches. This collector array will act as a source of energy for a 100kW inverter-driven ground source heat pump that will provide spatial heating and hot water services to the main house and annex, whilst also providing swimming season pool heating. The heat pump along with domestic hot water tank and heating buffer tank will be housed in a remote garage and will feed the heating targets from this location via highly efficient pre-insulated pipe. This frees up valuable space in the house as the existing boilers and hot water tanks can be removed.

The property has a limited electricity supply, therefore isoenergy has worked closely with the clients chosen electrical consultant to ensure that an appropriate load management system will be established so the heat pump is able to operate effectively and efficiently.

The project has now completed its groundworks stage and shortly we will be progressing to the installation of the plant room.
