Biomass expertise delivers reliable, stress-free heat at sustainable housing development

20th October 2020

Developers of a luxury mews development have taken advantage of expert care and hassle-free heat at Home Farm Barns.

Developers the House Maker installed a biomass district heating system to boost sustainability at the converted farmhouse in Cheshire. Three biomass boilers deliver heat through an underground system to nine homes, making a saving of 54 tonnes of CO2 per year, compared to using oil.

Experts at AMP Clean Energy initially helped improve the performance of the heating system, ensuring a smooth running and highly efficient operation.

The House Maker was so impressed with the results that they signed up to AMP Clean Energy’s managed heat service. This means that all their heating needs are taken care of – from fuel supply, service and maintenance to remote heat monitoring. This provides complete peace of mind, leaving the House Maker to simply pay for the heat used off the monitor.

Tina Horth, Head of Commercial Operations at the House Maker, said: “We have been so impressed with the expertise of AMP Clean Energy’s biomass engineers, who have significantly improved the operation of the district heating scheme.

“The managed heat service is a win-win for both us and our homeowners, providing low carbon heat 24/7, which is absolutely priceless.”

Stuart Reid, Managing Director (projects) at AMP Clean Energy, said: “We have invested in the largest team of specialist biomass engineers in the country who can troubleshoot any existing problems as well as optimise the performance of biomass installations.

“Home Farm Barns is a great example of how businesses can benefit from low carbon heat without the burden of its operation. Our managed heat service provides low maintenance, stress-free heating with the added bonus of our engineering expertise.”
