Historic Soulton Hall in Wem, Shropshire, has replaced traditional fossil fuels with two Stiebel Eltron ground source heat pumps, generating green hot water and heating for the 30-room manor house and the coach house.
Saving £10,000+ each year
Having previously used oil and electricity, Soulton Hall is now saving more than £10,000 each year in fuel costs, as well as achieving a substantial reduction in CO2 emissions.
The heat pump system was designed and installed by Staffordshire-based Total NRG – an approved Stiebel Eltron installer partner – using a twin ground source heat pump system, with a Stiebel Eltron WPF27HT heat pump working alongside a Stiebel Eltron WPF35 heat pump.
The WPF27HT provides heating and hot water, while the WPF35 is being used for heating only – with a total output of 62kW, the system is designed so that in the summer months only 27kW is needed, reducing energy usage and costs.”
Soulton Hall committed to sustainability
Owned and managed by the Ashton family, Soulton Hall has invested heavily in green energy systems over the past two years and is firmly committed to sustainability.
More than 200 solar panels produce around 70,000kWh of free electricity for the home site each year – which in turn powers the ground source heat pump.
About Stiebel Eltron
Stiebel Eltron is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of renewable technologies such as ground and air source heat pumps, solar PV and solar thermal.
Mark McManus, Stiebel Eltron UK managing director, said: “Historic sites such as Soulton Hall are traditionally very hard to heat with poor insulation – however with this project we have demonstrated that with the right technology and design, it is possible to retro-fit a green energy system that can optimise both cost and energy savings.”
