Henlle Hall benefits from Ecodan renewable heat pumps

Ecodan provides economic heating at Georgian manor

Three Ecodan renewable heat pumps have been specified to heat Henlle Hall, a Georgian country house based in rural Shropshire.

Located in Gobowen near Oswestry, Henlle Hall is a grand Georgian country house, which was originally built in 1794. It is the home of the Lloyd family, who have worked to develop the estate’s grounds into a country retreat, with accommodation in the form of woodland lodges and courtyard cottages.

In addition to its thirteen bedrooms, the property boasts a ground floor kitchen, parlour, games room, drawing room and dining room. The ‘feather room’ – an impressive space which has borders painted in game bird feathers – is key to the structure of the home’s extravagant ground floor.

Heating the estate was costing a small fortune in oil for the owner. However, its Grade II Listed status meant the Lloyds were limited on how much improvement they could make to its thermal properties.

Ecodan renewable heat pumps

As a solution, three Ecodan 11kW renewable heat pumps were specified to provide heating throughout the year. The PUHZ-HW112VHA(-BS) units have been fitted externally, to the back of the property, in a discrete fashion.

The heat pumps work in a cascade system: they operate individually or together, in response to the property’s exact heating requirements. Demand is rotated between the three units to ensure that work is shared; this maximises efficiency, in addition to prolonging the lifespan of each pump.

Ecodan pumps can also work effectively in a hybrid system. At Henlle Hall, the units are supported by an oil boiler, which kicks in to provide additional heating when the weather turns. The hybrid system makes an active decision to use different heating systems at certain times, with the aim of heating the estate in the most economically way possible.

Since installing the Ecodan system, Henlle Hall qualifies for the Renewable Heat Incentive on every kW of renewable heating that the pumps generate.
