Fleet house is a set in picturesque Hampstead, a stones throw away from where Constable spent 2 years painting the surrounding views. The imposing house has many architectural features without impacting on the surrounding landscape.
The heating load 15kw was achieved by installing a vertical closed loop bore hole system to a Viessmann heat pump and solar thermal array to maximize the efficiency to provide hot water and underfloor heating.
The system comprises of a Thermal store which stores heat produced via the solar panels and is then topped up by the high efficient ground source heat pump producing COP’s of 4.3.
