When Mosswood Cottage, a three bedroom cottage in Yorkshire, was in need of a heating upgrade, Vaillant helped to provide a green solution. The oil boiler that was originally in place was proving to be costly and inefficient, resulting in extremely high monthly fuel bills for the homeowner.
In a bid to update the system, local home energy specialist Solarwall suggested a Vaillant hybrid arrangement. They proposed the installation of a Vaillant aroTHERM 11kW air source heat pump as part of a hybrid system to reduce fuel consumption and energy bills.
A heat exchanger module and a 40-litre buffer tank were also installed, and one radiator replaced to ensure the homeowner could maximise the benefits.
The hybrid system is controlled via the Vaillant triVAI intelligent tariff selection tool. This tariff control is one of the most sophisticated on the market, and ensures the system consistently works at its most efficient level. Tariff-controlled systems intelligently select the most cost-effective heat source based on a variety of coexisting variables, and crucially, do not require any intervention from the end user.
