Happy New Year for 2016 from all of us here at Orangehouse Renewables.
Early January and the air temperatures are mild at 7oC. These current conditions, particularly with the soil being so wet, mean that ground source heat pumps are operating efficiently at ground temperatures of 10-11oC. Consequently our customers should be toasty warm AND happier with lower electricity bills!
Underfloor heating really comes into it's own at this time of year. Warm floors give a higher level of comfort for less energy input. Heat pumps are a perfect match for underfloor heating, as they operate more efficiently at lower temperatures (compared with traditional radiators which run at higher flow temperatures)
A typical Orangehouse wet underfloor heating system manifold. This will be linked to either an air source or ground source heat pump.
