The Challenge

A new build development constructed to a high environmental standard by Tulloch Homes with environmentally friendly features were designed to complement their natural surroundings. With a mix of social and private properties,  efficient air source heat pumps were specified to deliver all heating and hot water requirements.  The properties were built to Tulloch Homes premier specification and come with a 10-year NHBC warranty.

The Requirements

The key objectives for the renewable heating system were that the heat pumps had to be compact, quiet and energy efficient. Gordon Macallister from Highland Plumbing & Heating, who installed the Ecodan heat pumps wanted to ensure that the systems were easy to maintain and reliable and with running costs that are comparable with natural gas but without the emissions to help prevent climate change. These points were important from both the customer and the installer perspective.

The Solution

The Ecodan QUHZ is specifically designed with new-build standards of insulations and lower heating loads in mind. The super-efficient and system uses CO2 as a refrigerant, which allows the heat pump to deliver water at 70°C to a packaged 200 litre thermal store, so that families receive hot water whenever they need it.  The Ecodan QUHZ also boasts market leading sound performance and is virtually silent even at peak load.
