New Build 5-Bed House - Writtle, Essex



Project Background

HeatPumps4Homes were contacted by Ms Coop in Writtle, Essex, as HeatPumps4Homes were a local MCS accredited installer listed on the government MCS web site. 

She was planning to start to build a new 5-bedroom detatched property in Writtle, Essex and had heard about the benefits that using a heat pump to heat the property could offer.

HeatPumps4Homes supplied a quotation to install an air-source heat pump, hot water, cylinder, and underfloor heating

HeatPumps4Homes worked alongside the onsite builder and other trades to complete the project on time and on budget.

Heat Pump Selection

After completing our heat-loss calculations for the property a Mitsubishi 14kw air source heat pump was selected together with a 300 litre hot water cylinder


Hot Water Provision

A new 300 litre cylinder was installed in a first floor airing cupboard.


Heat Pump Location

 In order to comply with permitted development rights for planning permission, the heat pump was located in the rear garden.

The heat pump was positioned at the side of the rear extension and screened off by the customer.



Underfloor Heating

HeatPumps4Homes designed and installed underfloor heating to the ground floor and first floors of the property.



Room Thermostats

Digital room thermostats were installed in each room to give control of the desired temperature to each individual room.

The main system controller uses the new FTC5 system which is incredibly easy to operate.




Installation of the system was completed in phases working in line with the builder and other on-site trades.

After the underfloor heating was installed, the builder laid the floor screed over it and once dried, the floors were tiled.

After comissioning the system, a handover pack was supplied to the customer which includes the MCS certificate for the installation, user guides and user manuals etc

A video was also supplied which provides an easy to follow guide on how to operated the new heat pump installation.

Training on how to operate the system was given and of course HeatPumps4Homes remain on hand to answer any questions that they may have in the future.

Project Outcome

Ms Coop remains delighted with the new heat pump installation.

They have no hesitation in recommending HeatPumps4Homes to any other customers.

HeatPumps4Homes have also helped them apply for the Renewable Heat Incentive so that they will receive payments for using a heat pump over the next seven years.

She will also benefit from the low runnning costs that the heat pump system delivers.
