Possible positions for the external heat pump and hot water cylinder.
Detailed heat loss survey of the property. this involves measuring every room to be heated, what the building is constructed from, all insulation types in walls floors and ceilings.
These details are the input into MCS approved software to calculate the heat requirements for each room and the whole house.
Only then can a suitable heat pump be chosen. using all the heatless data a very accurate picture of the heating required can be predicted so when a heat pump is fitted we will be confident it will provide heating and hot water requirements to at least -3 degs centigrade.
