Nicholls Boreholes was contacted by a Client in the South Downs National Park who lives in a beautiful Grade II listed country house in Fittleworth looking for a more environmentally-friendly system to provide heating to the property. The 800 square metres of interior space was being heated by an old oil boiler with high running costs.
Nicholls designed and supplied a new GSHP system installing 2 x 30 kW Vaillant heat pumps using 17 boreholes at 80 metres, with a domestic hot water storage and large heating tanks to support the existing radiator circuit and the underfloor heating in the newly renovated section of the property. The system also heats the indoor swimming pool at vastly reduced running costs.
As an MCS accredited installer Nicholls Boreholes systems are eligible for RHI funding which in this case will pay back 100% of the installation costs.
“Many thanks to the great team at Nicholls. A very large project converting our Grade II listed Georgian property (and pool) entirely to ground source heating. They have patiently guided us through every aspect from the initial drilling to the final grant application. Projects like this will never run entirely to plan but, thanks to the excellent customer service, it has been relatively painless. We are very happy to recommend them.”
