Our client was finding it hard to manage their energy consumption. Living in a Victorian rectory in Buckden, St Neots (south Cambridgeshire) the property had beautiful period features of very large rooms with high ceilings. The property was also single glazed with only an old oil boiler to heat all of the space. With a young family and the ever increasing demand for energy to fuel their home, our client was looking for a long term solution.
What we did:
We installed a Hargassner wood chip biomass boiler-35kW Classic –Vacuum Suction with thermal store (buffer vessel) that holds 4.5 tonnes of pellets and would provide both central heating and hot water.
One of the ultimate in biomass systems Hargassner boasts 95 % efficiency. It is also considered low maintenance with automated ignition and automated cleaning and ash collection options.
We also installed Honeywell Evo home controls. These allowed our client to zone different spaces in the home and regulate the temperature much more easily.
A long term purchase, Biomass is eligible for the Government Renewable Heat Incentive. This has allowed our clients to receive annual payments for the next 7 years. Which together with the added efficiency of a new system means that the upfront costs will be covered within the 4 years.
