Commercial Case Study: Ground Source Heat Pump

2 x 42kW Ground Source Heat Pumps installed into a 64 bed care home in Yorkshire, providing both heating and domestic hot water. This is one of twenty care homes, located throughout the country that Q-gen Ltd has successfully completed on behalf of a national property development company.

Heat pumps are connected to 12 x 155m vertical closed loop boreholes situated below the car park.

Installation was completed during a number of phases starting with the boreholes, then underfloor heating and then heat pumps with associated equipment such as DHW cylinder and buffer tank going in last.  The full installation in total took approximately 4 weeks to complete. The Heat Pumps are connected to the Building Management System to allow a comprehensive means of control.

This installation qualifies for the commercial Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
