I have planning permission for a 4 bed property (Duke of Sutherland style). When it comes to heating the property and for the hot water, I was unsure as to what technology to use. I was thinking about an air heat source pump for underfloor heating on the ground floor and 1st floor with a thermostat in each room. A double sided log burner between lounge and dinning room — possibly to use to heat water during winter months. Then, solar thermal panels for heating the water in the summer.
What are your thoughts or what would you recommend?
