During the first stage of the installation process a member of the Ideal team visited Haygreen House to help carry out a site survey which included establishing the site conditions and also gaining a further understanding of the customer's requirements:
When on site I spoke with the customer to find out exactly what they expected from a Ground Source Heat Pump and to explain the various stages of installation and how the system worked.
It was agreed the ground loop should be a "slinky" type fitted in trenches along the front of the property as land space was sufficient and the grounds were being re-worked anyway. This avoided the more costly option of borehole drilling. As the property was being renovated and extended, the heat pump would be installed in a newly built utility/boiler room.
During each of the decisions safety, ease of installation and visual appearance of the property was considered.
Following the site visit I was then able to put together an itemised costing for the customer and also a proposal for the project manage.
