Heat pump brings joy of central heating to 100-year-old farm

A heat pump from award-winning manufacturer Warmflow has helped provide heating to a 100-year-old farm cottage in Kirton, Lincolnshire.

Warmflow Zeno Heat pump brings joy of central heating to 100-year-old farm

The cottage has been fitted with Warmflow’s new Zeno ASHP and the newly renovated home is enjoying central heating for the first time.

The landlord of the 100-year-old farm cottage wanted a state-of-the-art heating system that could be adapted into this historical building. The ambition was a clean heating source that would efficiently and effectively heat this beautiful home as well as being environmentally sustainable.

Boston-based installers Len Breathwick & Son recommended the Zeno as one of the most intelligent and efficient heat pumps on the market commenting: “The Warmflow Zeno air source heat pump was a no brainer for this property. With the help of Warmflow’s heat pump design team, we chose to go with the AS01 paired with a Warmflow Nero 170ltr cylinder. The air source unit was easy to install and commission.”

For this smaller cottage the Zeno AS01 was the perfect solution with an output of 8kW of heat energy, providing hot water temperatures of up to 50˚. This unit also supplies the underfloor heating and the low temperature radiators with hot water for efficient heating. Pairing it with Warmflow’s new 170ltr Nero Heat Pump Cylinder ensures endless hot water. This was the installers first time installing a Warmflow Zeno air source heat pump and they ‘wouldn’t hesitate to do so again’.

A brilliant heating solution

The Zeno always proves to be a favourite of installers who receive training on the product at one of Warmflow’s seven training centres across the UK.

The in-depth training included on the Zeno air source heat pumps includes installation, commissioning & troubleshooting. 

 Warmflow’s GB Renewables Sales Manager Niel Rumbold said: “The Zeno Air Source Heat Pump units are a brilliant heating solution for all types of homes. They offer excellent energy savings and can help reduce the end user’s carbon footprint.

“In this case, the homeowner wanted a sustainable heating solution for the cottage and has expressed their delight at the results.

“Underfloor heating had already been installed in the property, as well as radiators, making the ultimate heating solution when paired with our heat pump. This is because the underfloor heating and low-temp rads requires lower flow temperatures of 35 degrees, meaning the heat pump in turn uses less electricity.”

Warmflow’s range of uniquely designed air source heat pumps offer market leading efficiencies as well some unique features such as Warmlink.

Warmlink is Warmflow’s remote control and diagnostic platform which comes as standard with all Zeno heat pump models. The installing engineer simply downloads the Warmlink app onto their phone, scans the unique QR code on the side of each appliance and is then able to remotely monitor, fault find and control the unit from anywhere in the world.

New to the technology, the landlord of the property was reassured by the backup that Warmlink offers commenting: “I like the look of the unit. And I feel safe knowing the installer can monitor and look after my heat pump through the Warmlink app.”
