Estate House, Perthshire

Timber Kit construction by Rob Roy, utilising a NIBE ‘Fighter’ 22kW Ground Source Heat Pump, docked with an oil fired boiler and solar thermal system, in an external plant room. Pre-insulated heating primary pipework is distributed from the plantroom to the property, serving pipe in screed underfloor heating on the ground floor, and pipe in pug on the 1st and 2nd floors. Pre-insulated hot and cold water primary pipework is also distributed to hot and cold secondary manifolds throughout the property, combined with domestic hot water secondary return to ensure instantaneous hot water at all outlets. The hot water secondary return system is pumped, timed and thermostatically controlled to maximise efficiency and minimise energy consumption.
