Nicholls Boreholes were selected by a Client in Alresford, near Winchester to supply a ground source heat pump system (GSHP) to provide both heating and hot water to their house, office, swimming pool and pool house.
Nicholls drilled and installed 15 boreholes at 150 metres supplying free energy to the 92kw bivalent Stiebel Eltron system – a 52kw and a 40kw ground source heat pump with a back-up oil boiler. We selected this advanced heat pump due to the age of the property and the need to integrate with their existing heating system.
These heat pump units have the added advantage of being monitored by Stiebel Eltron’s ISG (Internet Service Gateway) allowing comfortable and easy adjustments via PC, laptop or tablet on site in conjunction with Stiebel Eltron’s Head Office. It is a fully integrated service so Stiebel Eltron can log in to check the status of the heat pump system at any time.
The Client has already been successful in applying for the Commercial Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI) which they will receive over a period of 20 years based on their metered usage readings taken and paid quarterly.
‘I am very pleased that we made the decision to use Nicholls Boreholes. Our project was complex requiring great attention to detail, patience and team work with our other contractors and in all of these areas the Nicholls’ team excelled. They were also excellent in dealing with problems and in their service once the system was installed to make sure it was working optimally. I would certainly recommend them.’
