Sarratt Hall, a residential Grade II listed building, was suffering from high heat loss due to no wall insulation and single glazing.
The owners of Sarratt Hall were passionate about making the building as green as possible. The Green Building Design team created IESmodels, to help identify the best ways to reduce both energy and carbon emissions, whilst conserving the historic fabric of the building. We also assisted the client with estimates for the renewable heat incentive and provided detailed cost analysis and payback calculations.
· Installation of air source heat pump to heat and provide hot water to the property and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
· Upgraded electrical supply.
· New thermal store to accommodate hot water demand,
· New and refurbished radiators, in keeping with the historic fabric of the building,
We had intended to add PV to the home owners field to make the building carbon neutral, but this was rejected by the planners. However, all of the energy efficiency measures we did install, along with the client’s commitment to making Sarratt Hall as green as possible, has seen this historic building greatly reduce both its energy usage and carbon emissions.
