The Challenge

What is the vision?

Jarvis Homes, the builder of the property founded their reputation through excellence in design and strive to ensure their clients benefit from the latest sustainability practices.

Heating Savings

Although energy wasn’t the first thing on the mind of homeowner Ben Cosbie Ross when moving into his new home, he quickly realised that the inclusion of an Ecodan air source heat pump would help the family save around 30 per cent on heating.

The Requirements

Quality, craftsmanship, Innovation

Jarvis Homes focus on quality, craftmanship and innovation to ensure new houses match the ‘homes of distinction’ ambitions the company prides itself on.

Reliable heating all year round

When looking at the energy performance of the whole building, the fabric was the first approach taken, however, a heating system such as Ecodan’s air source heat pump was ideal for meeting the planning regulations and delivering reliable, eco friendly, sustainable heating all year round.

The Solution

The right Ecodan for the job

An air source heat pump offers a modern alternative to traditional heating which will help keep heating bills low and reduce carbon emissions. The 8.5kW Ecodan in combination with advanced MELCloud controls, heats the home via underfloor heating and radiators to ensure that the homeowner benefits from continuously high levels of comfort.

Additional benefits of Ecodan

Further to lower running costs, the builder wanted a renewable heating system that was simple to operate, utilised advanced controls, offered full functionality and lessened the environmental footprint of the property. This is exactly what an Ecodan helps to offer.
