Nicholls Boreholes were selected by our Client to supply and install an open loop ground source heat pump system (GSHP) with a 100 metre water borehole at their private residence. Due to the client having an existing waterwell they wanted to install an open-loop GSHP system which would save them having an additional borehole drilled. In open-loop systems, groundwater is abstracted at ambient temperature from the ground, passed through a heat pump before being re-injected back into the ground or discharged at the surface. We designed and supplied a 13kW (single phase) Stiebel Eltron ground source heat pump and associated equipment which is located in an external plant room. We also supplied underfloor heating for the client.
We were able to utilise our extensive knowledge of water borehole projects along with 7 years of ground source heat pump installation experience.
As we are an MCS Accredited Installer, the Client has achieved success in obtaining revenue through the Government’s Domestic Renewable Heating Incentive (R.H.I.) and this will almost pay for the full installation after the 4 years of incentive has been paid.
As part of our commitment to customer service, our Client has accepted an annual maintenance service agreement for complete peace of mind. As an approved partner with Stiebel Eltron we are providing our Client with a free parts and labour warranty for a period of 7 years.
