Case Studies

Berry Farmhouse

Architect: Saturday Studio
Builder: Lime Building Group
System: Integrated heating and cooling
Capacity: 68kW

Project brief/scope:

  • Hydronic underfloor heating
  • Architectural hydronic radiators
  • Space Heating and cooling via concealed packaged water to air units
  • Pool heating
  • Potable hot water heating

CWL Group provided an alternative solution to conventional heating and cooling systems for an energy-conscious client with site-specific governing factors such as:

  • Main natural gas not available and difficult site access for LPG delivery
  • Limited power supply due to the rural location
  • Site reliance on solar PV and batteries
  • High heating and cooling loads due to a high glazing ratio

A cost-effective, efficient geothermal heating and cooling system was designed and installed by CWL Group to overcome site limitations using a combination of water to water ground source heat pumps and packaged water to air-ground source heat pumps coupled with a horizontal ground heat exchanger installed in an adjacent cow paddock. Inevitable mains power supply upgrade to the new build was avoided due to higher equipment COP (coefficient of performance) and was designed to fit within the existing power supply parameters resulting in considerable overall construction cost savings. Two years on, and the homeowner is enjoying a comfortable and efficient heating and cooling system with minimum maintenance.

I want to thank CWL Group for the outstanding work in installing our hydronic heating system. I have worked with many plumbers over the years and I have never seen such a high standard of workmanship. They came in on time and on budget. I cannot recommend the team from CWL Group highly enough.
