At Gregor we really enjoy helping people realise their dream of building their own home by helping them with the heating arrangements for their new property. Rowland Amos and his wife, Constance, are a recent case in point.

Having retired, the Amos’ decided it was time to pursue their long-term dream of building their own house and came up with the idea of the Octagon House, a unique, eight-sided, single-storey home.

A key requirement for them was for the Octagon House to be as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible so when it came to the heating arrangements they turned to our renewable experts for advice.

Having carefully listened to their requirements, we recommended a Daikin Air-to-Water Heat Pump coupled with underfloor heating as a fantastic solution for their space heating and hot water needs.

Air-to-water heat pumps are an eco-friendly technology that let you use the heat in the outside air to provide space heating and hot water for your home.

Depending on the alternatives available they can help you to save on your energy bills and cut your carbon emissions.

Furthermore, as in the case of the Amos’, installing an air-to-water heat pump can qualify you for the government’s Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive that offers attractive grants to encourage the take-up of renewable heating systems.

With The Octagon’s construction not due for completion until the end of April 2017, we’re looking forward to seeing Rowland’s dream home, finally come a reality – watch this space!
