14kW Ecodan Air Source Heat Pump

The Challenge

No access to a mains gas supply

A young family of four living in a five bedroom, executive home in Northumberland, were desperately seeking ways to reduce their fuel bills. Due to its location, there is no mains gas supply to the property, so the family have used an LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) boiler to heat their home for a number of years.

What's the vision?

The couple were also looking to be more conscious of their carbon footprint therefore a suitable eco friendly heating alternative like the Ecodan air source heat pump would be an ideal choice.

The Requirements

Up to date thermal qualities

Built in 1999, the house has all the thermal qualities you’d expect of a house this age and stood to benefit greatly from the use of a more efficient heating system. Other alternatives to LPG, such as wood, solar power and biomass, proved either insufficient for their needs or too expensive to install, run and maintain.

Financial savings

A 14kW Ecodan air source heat pump was installed to the property, saving the family around £520 a year as the system harvests eco friendly, green free energy from the outside air to provide central heating and hot water for significantly lower costs.


The Solution

Ecodan air source heat pump vs LPG Boiler

Changing to Ecodan meant this family are no longer reliant on the increasingly expensive LPG system to heat their home. With annual savings of a massive 45%, they’re able to reduce their average heating bills from £1,100 to £580.

Even temperatures, maximum comfort

By installing large, efficient radiators fitted with TRV’s, the Ecodan system works perfectly to ensure their home is warm enough without the need for any additional heating. Ecodan easily meets the demand for hot water, as well as delivering a more even temperature throughout the home for maximum comfort. This is all made eaiser by using MELCloud to remotely control and adapt heating needs according to the demand.
