Its been a few weeks now since the last blog about the boreholes going in at Hafod y Llan farm on Snowdon  for a new heating system for the old C18 farm-house which is undergoing a transformation. The house will soon be the latest National Trust holiday cottage but this one is at the foot of Snowdon and in the middle of our demonstration farm. It’s looking all twenty-first century around the heating system. Twin 15kw Stiebel Eltron Ground Source heat pumps with hot water and heating buffer vessels. Meanwhile in the farm office a new and very red Froling 18kw wood pellet boiler is doing the business as they say. Oh and two new Stiebel Eltron air to water source heat pumps are also working well at the Llyndu farm-house and flat down the road. Looking good!

almost 300 years of difference between the old farm house and its new heating system

Almost 300 years of difference between the old farm-house at Hafod y Llan and its new heating system. The occupants of the holiday cottage should be nice and toasty given the insulation and heating system going in!
