Key issues for the new owners of Coed y Glyn Uchaf – a cottage in a remote Denbighshire valley – were not just the noise and poor efficiency of the oil-fired heating system, but also uncertainty over the fluctuating price of oil and a keen desire to move away from fossil fuel energy and towards renewable sources. After living with the oil system through one winter, new owners Greg Brash and Tim Dean opted for a cleaner and quieter renewable solution to secure their future heating needs.
Renewable energy solves key heating issues in Welsh valley cottage
They now have a Daikin Altherma High Temperature air-to-water heat pump that’s largely powered by solar energy. This fuelsaving combination is reckoned to save them at least £700 a year – and that’s before domestic Renewable Heat Initiative payments.
“We’re really pleased with it. The system does exactly what it’s supposed to do and is so much cheaper. There’s even an app so we can control the heating from our phones from anywhere in the world.”
