Nu-Heat is committed to making sure that each system delivers optimum performance, and uses highly regarded design capabilities to achieve this, paying particular attention to ensuring the correct sizing of heat pumps to meet the demands of our diverse weather. This includes designing to an outside temperature of -3°C and calculating the optimum bivalent point – the point at which supplementary heating cuts in. Once a heat pump has been sized, Nu-Heat will calculate a year’s heating and hot water requirement to give an assessment of the seasonal performance factor to enable an estimate of the total heating and supplementary energy usage and providing an approximate cost for running the system.
To help achieve an even more efficient system, Nu-Heat will also incorporate solar thermal in the design. With both in-roof and bracketed flat panel models available for tiled and slate roofs, Nu-Heat can specify the correct configuration of solar collectors to suit the project requirements for just domestic hot water or domestic hot water and heating combined. Solar PV and rainwater harvesting systems complete Nu-Heat’s renewable and sustainable product offer.
