We might be Yorkshire but we do travel!

Update on Ground Source Heat Pump at the Old Rectory – 19th December 2016
Great Google view of this install in Leeds – you can see the 6 slinky trenches for the Kensa heat pump and the 10kW solar array all making the Old Rectory seen to the West very energy efficient!
Ground Source Heat Pump keeps Old Rectory Warm – 6th December 2016
Another happy customer sent us an email this week with figures showing the heating costs slashed and solar output bang on target.
It is also exactly a year since we installed the meters for the solar power, heat pump and solar Iboost. First and foremost, we have been absolutely delighted with the system which matches the quality of the installation which was second to none. The constant heat is brilliant and fears of installing in an old house were unfounded. Of course, given the size of the installation, there were a few teething problems, but most importantly your speed of sorting these out was brilliant. Thank you for your help.
Everything seems to work well. Even the chimney balloons that I attached an elastic cord to, to capture in case they went up the chimney again! The most surprising bonus was the solar iBoost that has used over 2000 kWh of free solar power. Interestingly, during the winter, we need to run the hot water heating for longer to substitute for the solar iBoost. The thermostat in the house is set on 19.5 degrees day and night 24/7 except when on holiday when it is dropped down. My mother is very jealous but enjoys looking after the kids at our house!
Thank you once again.
Viridian In-roof system in Richmond, North Yorkshire – 17th November 2016
This week we installed a fantastic Viridian in roof system in Richmond. 7kW looks great on this slate roof.
Heat Pump Running Costs less than Mains Gas! – 10th November 2016
This week we received an email from a very happy customer showing how much he is now saving since he swapped his gas boiler to an air source heat pump.
It’s the moment of truth – the end of the first year of electricity only, with solar panels and heat pump, the latter installed at the start of November 2015.
By my calculations I have finally got some figures which I hope are reasonably accurate!
October 2014 – November 2015 (our first year here) – annual cost £1551 (on gas)
October 2015 – November 2016 (no gas, heat pump) – annual cost £ 903
So that is quite some saving, and does not take account of the FIT and RHI payments, of course, though I count them as capital repayments, rather than part of the running costs.
Heat Pump in Boston Spa, West Yorkshire – 3rd November 2016
Next week we will be installing an 8.5kW air source heat pump and underfloor heating at an exciting and innovative new build on a steep bank to the river at Boston Spa.
Don’t fall in lads!
New Heating System in Appleton Wiske, North Yorkshire – 26th October 2016
This week we are installing a complete new heating system for a rebuild in Appleton Wiske consisting of a 14kW air source heat pump and underfloor heating. Also we are installing an 11kW solar PV system to drive it all.
The heating system has mostly been paid for by £12,000 from the Renewable Heat Incentive!
