Panasonic goes back in time for restoration

Panasonic, barn, Essex

The restoration of a Grade II listed 17th Century barn in Broxted, Essex demonstrates the strengths of Panasonic’s Aquarea air source heat pump by supplying hot water and heating to the property via underfloor heating. Energy specialists, Eco Installer, completed the installation of two 16kW Panasonic Aquarea T-Cap three-phase heat pumps.

This 17th Century barn that was originally used for storing and threshing of crops. Its renovation to a residential family home was a complex project, and was featured on the ‘Restoration Man’ television show. As Roland Gurner of Eco Installer explains: “This was a major restoration project, with the client looking for an alternative to an oil or fossil-fuel based system.

“The two 16kW Panasonic T-Cap heat pumps were chosen as a for the large internal areas and to provide a reliable and efficient source of heating. The property already had three-phase power installed with the units working well as a cascaded system, being highly efficient and providing energy when needed.”
