The old farm-house in the back ground. The first of the 3 x 100m boreholes being finished. The newer farm-house on the right has the Klover 120 wood pellet range cooker installed. Demonstration farm!

A quick visit to Hafod y Llan this morning to have a look at what’s happening on the heating front. It’s all go here and a few other properties

  • Clive is installing 2 new heavy mass wood pellet space heaters at Plas Newydd tea room and the new visitor centre at Penrhyn Castle
  • Hafod y Llan is busy installing a new Froling biomass boiler into the farm office. Emyr Hall the NT building surveyor is also installing a new  borehole 30kw Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) into the old farm-house which is undergoing a refurbishment as a new holiday cottage.
  • A mile down the road 2 new Stiebel Eltron air to water heat pumps are also being installed into the Llyndu farm-house and flat.
  • The heat-pumps mentioned above should be (cross fingers) supplied by two new Peco hydros in the coming year or so but as ever that’s another blog!
  • the soon to be converted C17 farm house which has been empty since the 60's

    The soon to be converted C17 farm-house which has been empty since the 60’s. Ps the chimney on the left is supposed to be that angle. We stopped it from falling into the house. The house will be Hydro and PV electric supplied, Ground source heat pump, drinking water from the mountain, heritage building and insulated to within an inch of its life. Oh and its has a path which goes  up Snowdon at the back of the house. Whats not to like?
