Zoe and Mary-Alice, from Sibthorpe, Newark, reached out to Geo Green Power to help them decarbonise their home, Portland House, with solar PV and an air source heat pump.
Following conversations with neighbours, who had made the swap to solar PV and heat pumps, we were recommended to the couple for their project. After an initial conversation, they were impressed with our expertise and choice of reputable suppliers and they chose us as their installer.
With a keen interest in future-proofing their home and taking advantage of the slow year, Zoe and Mary-Alice took the plunge and invested in a 13.5kW Nibe air source heat pump and a 4.14kW solar PV system for their home – two systems which, combined, will save over 8 tonnes of CO2 per year.
Zoe and Mary-Alice’s previous source of heating and hot water came from an old Stanley oil boiler; which was not only expensive to run, but harmful to the natural environment. As well as it’s green credentials, an attractive feature of the air source heat pump system was the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payback scheme. This scheme, paired with their own power generation from the solar PV, will allow the couple to save around £1,100 per annum on their bills, while producing almost zero harmful emissions – a stark contrast to their previous oil burning set-up.
While initially concerned about the disruption and upheaval associated with installing a heat pump, Zoe and Mary-Alice were impressed with the minimal interruptions to water and electric supply during the installation.
“They worked hard as a team; were very respectful and professional; neat; patient with us and our questions; clear in their explanations and checked regularly that we were happy. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and they did everything with a smile”
