Over many years this large, grade II* listed house has proved extremely costly to heat with oil, with limited scope for improving its energy efficiency. By installing a wood gasification boiler the cost of fuel has been reduced dramatically.
A 100 kW EcoAngus Super boiler is installed in a converted 3shed near to the house. This connected to a 5,000 litre Akvaterm accumulator tank which serves a buried radial heat main supplying heat to the house and also to a converted Stables.
Transfer of heat from the boiler to the accumulator tank is controlled by a Laddomat 21-60 load charging pump and valve, helping to maintain efficient combustion.
