Our client wanted to move away from their existing oil heating system and be more sustainable.

About the project

As part of some remedial works to a converted flint barn we installed 4 x 110 GSHP boreholes underneath the footprint of the new extension.  This  allowed minimal disruption to the well kept gardens. 

Our  Nicholls’ design team had calculated the requirement for a 19kW Vaillant heat pump and as Nicholls are a Vaillant approved installer, the client benefits from a 7 year parts warranty. 

The whole system runs from a solar array, keeping the carbon footprint of the property to a minimum. 


“Nicholls Boreholes were extremely professional from the outset and managed all the typical site constraints and complications well. The service has been amazing.”
