The ground source heat pump is still running!

Written by stephen gale

After a rather “bumpy” start, I am glad to report that the ground source heat pump is still running!  It is providing all of the heating and hot water in the house since the 12th Feb.  This is much to our relief.

We still have some way to go in terms of getting all the room thermostats operational – the ones in the new extension have yet to be powered up.  We also have builders/decorators on site and it is difficult to keep the windows and doors closed all of the time.  So it is very likely that we will see some more improvements over the coming months.

Even so, the internal temperature seems to be doing well (even without the log burners going!).  However, it has yet to be fully tested in the real Yorkshire weather.  Today, it is a rather barmy 10C.

The ground source heat pump was repaired on the 12th Feb.   You can see quite clearly the impact that this has had on the internal temperature of the house.  The temperature gauge is in the downstairs bedroom were the temperature is set to 18C.  It was also on the internal window cill where the sun (yes, it does happen occasionally in Yorkshire!) gets to it!
