Cheshire Barn Homes has installed Stiebel Eltron WPC and WPF ground source heat pumps as part of an energy efficient renovation project in Huxley, Cheshire.
Hoofield Hall Barns in Huxley incorporates six Grade II listed barns across an estate comprising of 17 listed buildings in total. Stiebel Eltron’s installation partners Fervo fitted a selection of WPC and WPF ground source heat pump units to suit the individual requirements of all six barns, following their conversion to luxury homes.
Due to the complex nature of the site, and the small footprint of the barns themselves, all units were installed on bore hole probes, with some barns requiring the WPC as a compact option to save space and maximise living areas.
All heat pump systems are fully integrated with the estate’s ventilation system, maximising efficiencies and improving the usability of the system for residents.
Rhys Nevett, director at Cheshire Barn Homes, said: “Our aim at Hoofield Hall Barns was to restore beautifully unique listed buildings into luxury properties with sustainability at their core. From the foundation of the idea, Fervo and the team at Stiebel Eltron, met the challenges of the development to help achieve a truly stunning and historic development, driven by renewable technologies.”
Mark McManus, managing director at Stiebel Eltron UK, added, “The project presented a number of challenges that were expertly handled by both the products themselves and our installation partners Fervo, particularly installing the new units into heritage buildings with limited space.
“We’re passionate about ensuring that, wherever possible, renewable options are viable in both new-build and retrofit developments. This project is a source of great pride, and a ringing endorsement of the benefits of this technology for both homeowners and the environment.”
