NIBE: Normanton Lodge, Alfreton
Normanton Lodge is a care home for elderly people in the Mansfield area. Six air source heat pumps were installed to provide heating to a 46-bedroom brick-built extension to the care home.
Air Source Heat Pump (16kW)
Normanton Lodge is a care home for elderly people in the Mansfield area, run by My Care. Normanton Lodge was opened in 1971 and has been extended to include a 46-bedroom brick-built extension to the care home, which required its own dedicated heating system. My Care is committed to utilising renewable energy, wherever possible in its care homes, so heat pumps were a natural choice.
Dan Wilson, Business Development Manager for Trusted Energy Solutions, said: “The challenge on this project was to ensure that we had sufficient capacity to supply hot water to all the bathrooms in the extension whilst simultaneously creating a comfortable climate for the residents.
Trusted Energy Solutions, a NIBE VIP installer, based in Newark, was contracted to provide a solution to the extension’s heating and hot water requirements. Trusted Energy Solutions specified, designed and installed six F2040-16kW air source heat pumps (F2040) with a combined output of 96kW. The six air source heat pumps were installed on a reinforced flat roof, which meant they did not interfere with the aesthetics or access to the building.
NIBE F2040 is an intelligent and compact inverter-controlled air source heat pump. NIBE F2040 provides optimum savings since the heat pump automatically adapts to a building’s heating requirements all year round.
“We’re really pleased with the NIBE heat pumps installed at our care home extension. The residents have commented how comfortable the building is and how they also enjoy the benefits of having underfloor heating. It is great to have an energy source that we can leave on all day and is affordable to run, as well as being comfortable for our residents.”
