Retrofit for the Future

Development of an integrated Ground / Air / Solar Heat Pump for plug in retrofit

The retrofit will be carried out to an occupied house owned by Penwith Housing Association. It addresses the whole house solution by applying a comprehensive package of measures including fabric heat losses, heating and ventilating technology, renewable energy and lighting and appliance usage. It includes an innovative ground / air / solar source heat pump and the HeatPod a small prefabricated multi-purpose glazed porch / conservatory which contains much of the equipment required for reducing the carbon emissions of the dwelling. The complete package of measures builds on Penwith HAs practical knowledge of what can realistically be achieved in social housing homes and is designed to be highly replicable.
