Air source heat pumps will be helping to keep residents warm in the first Passivhaus affordable homes in Warwickshire.
Developed in Germany in the early 1990s, the Passivhaus model focuses on creating buildings which are as energy efficient as possible. Warwickshire Rural Housing Association (WRHA) is developing the pioneering scheme in Wootton Wawen, in partnership with Waterloo Housing Group and developer Bouygues UK. It is due for completion early next year
WRHA is working with manufacturer Mitsubishi Electric to provide the 14 properties with the latest renewable air source heat pumps to fuel their heating and hot water, in place of a traditional boiler.
Wilby Meadows, Regional Sales Manager – Renewable Heating for Mitsubishi Electric UK, said the most up-to-date air source heat pump technology had been developed in Japan and the company was very excited to be bringing it to the UK.

The ASHRAE UK Midlands Section in association with the IOR, CIBSE West Midlands, BSRA, and the BEI (Birmingham Energy Institute) is holding an evening technical meeting titled "Low carbon district heating" by Dr Andy Pearson, who recently became a Fellow member of ASHRAE.
There has been a rapid and remarkable increase in discussion of industrial-sized heat pump systems for district heating in the UK over the last three years. Heat networks are not a new idea but they have traditionally been seen as a very “un-British” way of delivering domestic heating.
