Example: Multiple Dwellings
Linking multiple dwellings together via a micro-district ground source heat pump system architecture can provide a cost effective and efficient heating solution for your holiday park.
Find the recommended ground source heat pump design for your holiday accommodation and establish the heat pump installation costs using our costed examples.
A micro-district ground source heat pump system features individual heat pumps in each dwelling, all fed from the same central ground array. This ground array can be made up of either coiled pipe known as slinkies, boreholes or pond mats, and is sized to deal with the peak heat demand of all the dwellings combined.
Costed example for water source
Has your holiday park got a water feature on site? Are you located near a river or stream whose heat you can harness?
Water is an excellent conductor of heat and therefore water source ground source heat pump systems are extremely energy efficient. See example costs
Costed example for slinkies
If your guesthouse is surrounded by fields or paddocks, then slinkies would be a viable option for a ground source installation.
Slinkies are the name given to coiled pipe buried in trenches at a depth of 1-2m where the ground temperature remains constant all year round See example costs
Costed example for boreholes
If you don’t have access to a water source or exposed land area is limited, then boreholes might be a viable option.
Boreholes can usually be drilled into any type of ground and are a perfect space-saving solution, as the depth of the hole(s) is varied to suit the heat requirement.
Micro district borehole systems are ideally suited to larger projects with a minimum of 20 properties. See example costs
