Midlands based housebuilder Hayfield Homes are leading the way in eco home building at their latest development just outside Worcester.
All homes will be built with an air source heat pump – therefore no connection to the grid is required.
The heat pumps, located externally, operate continually to drag heat from the ground and outside air into the heating system inside the homes creating little noise as they are based on acoustic feet.
The size of pump is determined by the size of house from 9kw for a 5 bed detached down to 4kw for a 2 bed.
The larger houses are also equipped with underfloor heating to maximise the efficiency of the heat pumps.
Hayfield Homes started fitting air source heat pumps in their new builds back in 2019 to get ahead of the curve before the Government’s new building standards come into force in 2025 pushing fossil fuels out of all new build homes.
The use of air source heat pumps is essential if the Government is to reach its net zero target by 2050.
There is one challenge with this move to cleaner energy, that is the demand on the electricity grid and Hayfield have had to create new electricity substations to meet the demands of its new homes.
When used correctly, it is proven the efficiency and cost effectiveness of air source can be very significant.
