Darras Hall Air Souce Heat Pump Install

Our client is based within a residential area at Darras Hall. Darras Hall is a housing estate located in a village of Ponteland, Northumberland. The customer in question approached us for air source heat pump installation along with underfloor heating.

The clients home is a semi-passive detached 4 bedroom property with a large garage space and a very sizeable front and back yard area.

The older heating system was replaced with a brand new, state of the art Vaillant plant room situated inside the garage space, and is paired with a 12kw Vaillant aroTHERM Air Source Heat Pump in the back yard. 

It was important for us to plan out this particular Darras Hall air source heat pump install so that the customers heating and hot water wasn’t impacted too much, as it is an occupied residence.

About this Darras Hall install

Maximum Efficiency

The first stage of this Darras Hall heat pump install was to remove the older, inefficient heating system, along with all old pipework and hot water cylinders within the property.

The next stage was to install the brand new Vaillant heat pump system, for the properties heating and hot water. This Quietmark approved technology is a very quiet running system and provides a 460% efficiency which will massively lower our clients carbon footprint and help reduce energy bills. 

Once the Air Source Heat Pump was installed into the back yard we went to work on the indoor plant room. Their older hot water cylinder was taken out and replaced with a new highly efficient 300 litre Vaillant heat pump, hot water cylinder and controls, Vaillant heat exchanger module and Vaillant internet gateway.

Both internal and external copper piping and insulation was fitted throughout the plant room, along with through the wall insulation kits, auto air vents and isolator valves. 

The internal plant room was installed effortlessly and without any disturbance to the client, and we were able to install the Air Source Heat Pump on a day which suited their schedule.

Air source & Solar Installation

How did we install this system?

Stage one of our clients air source heat pump installation was to remove all the old copper piping from the garage area along with the outdated, inefficient hot water cylinder. We then designed and installed a full brand new plant room consisting of a 300L Valliant heat pump hot water cylinder and controls, a Valliant heat exchanger module, 50L Buffer with a Valliant internet gateway. 

A Vaillant aroTHERM plus 12kW Air Source Heat pump was installed outside of the property and mounted onto anti vibration feet and tails which also included a control unit. All new electrical connections for the heat pump and controls were wired, and we switched the fuse spurs and rotary isolator, as well as a shielded data cable.

All internal works for the plant room were fitted quickly and efficiently inside the clients garage space, and with minimal disruption to their heating and hot water needs. The Air source heat pump was also fitted and connected outside with no disturbance to the families daily routine.
