Bromford - Ground Source Heat Pump
In 2017, Bromford refurbished a number of properties across two sites in Shropshire, as part of a trial scheme to tackle fuel poverty for residents.
With no gas available in the village of Hodnet, a communal Ground Source scheme was suggested to replace the inefficient electric storage heating system. The Vaillant geoTHERM mini ground source heat pumps were deemed the most sustainable and cost-efficient option for these properties.

St. Peter's Court - Air Source Heat Pump System
Family-owned developers, Goulden Simpson Ltd, have recently constructed a trio of energy-efficient properties in Shropshire using Vaillant heat pump technology.

Meaden Project - Ground Source Heat Pump
In 2012, the owners of the Meaden House bought a remote 400-year-old farmhouse near Peterborough, with plans to build a sustainable home. The ambition was for the finished house to cost as little as possible to run to minimise their monthly outgoings. As the property was in an off-gas area and had 1.5 acres of land, a ground source heat pump was suggested as an ideal solution. Watch a video to see how the project evolved.
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Case Study
