Heatforce Helps Caerphilly Council Go Green With Heat Pump Installation.

Four air source heat pumps have recently been installed at Caerphilly Council’s Tir Y Berth Depot by leading green-energy installer, Heatforce (Wales) Ltd, a G1 installer based in Cardiff. As part of a larger project to refurbish three building units, the job involved safely removing the older gas-fired LPG central heating system and replacing it with a greener model as CEO of Heatforce Paul Maddocks explained: “In one unit, we installed two Aerona³ 17kW air source heat pumps complete with thirty-one radiators, and in the two other units, we fitted another pair of Grant heat pumps, this time 13kW models, as well as twenty-six radiators – complete with new pipework and new plumbing throughout.” The installation of the Grant Aerona³ heat pumps will provide renewable heating to the offices and was part of a drive by the local authority to reduce carbon emissions. This project showcases how air source heat pumps are helping commercial environments swap from fossil fuel heating systems to greener, more sustainable alternatives. “Our Client not only wanted air source heat pumps to keep these refurbished buildings warm but they also wanted to upgrade the buildings themselves so that their energy efficiencies were significantly improved,” said Paul. “The installation of the Grant heat pumps fulfilled the Client’s brief and they are very happy with their new heating systems,” he continued. “In particular, they are very pleased that they chose a renewable heating system, one that will sustainably meet the heating and hot water demand of the offices while also helping them to minimise their impact on the wider environment.”
