Historic Fort installs heat pump system

A historic fort in Gloucestershire is installing a ground source heat pump to replace the expensive LPG system that it currently relies on. A 50kW system is being installed by the Renewable Design Company using a field close by as the heat source. The fort has installed underfloor heating throughout the ground floor and low temperature smart rads in all bedrooms on the upper floors. It is expected that the cost of heating the building and hot water will drop by as much as 60%.
