Vaillant heat pump exploits renewable energy for Dorset housing association

Vaillant, heat pump, renewable energy

One of the first installations of a Vaillant geoTHERM Air 12 air-to-water heat pump and uniSTOR cylinder is a social-housing refurbishment in Bishops Caundle, near Sherborne in Dorset. It will provide heating and hot water for a 3-bedroom home owned by Magna Housing Association.

This housing association is looking at options for providing heating and hot water at many of its properties where gas is not available.

A. P. Chant Building Services, which has worked with Magna for 10 years, was asked to assess the options available and liaise with the tenant so they could make an informed decision on how they would like to meet their heating and hot-water needs.

Once a decision had been made, A. P. Chant recommended Vaillant’s geoTHERM Air system. ‘Once the tenant had decided on a new renewable heating and hot-water system, we were happy to recommend Vaillant. We’ve worked with Vaillant for over 15 years, and we are familiar with their products; they are all thoroughly tested and extremely reliable.

‘The geoTHERM Air is a very new air-to-water heat-pump system, and the installation was something of a learning curve. However, the Vaillant technical design team drew up schematics and provided us with excellent technical support.’
