Case study: Executive Home, Inverness
Sustainable ground source heating in the coldest part of the UK!
This timber frame, new build executive retreat has sustainability at the heart of it’s design.
The timber frame, new build executive retreat has sustainability at the heart of it’s design, sourcing timber for construction from local woodland and using heat energy sourced from the ground for heating the property.
Kensa’s award winning engineers proposed a 12kW Twin Compact ground source heat pump to deliver 100% space heating with energy stored in the ground collected via four 75m vertical, closed loop ground arrays.
The heat pump system perfectly complements underfloor heating, with pipes buried in thick concrete screed to deliver desirable room heating and low return temperatures to the heat pump for energy efficiency.
