Finn Geotherm scoops award for Raynham Hall Project

Attleborough based renewable heating company Finn Geotherm beat off stiff national competition to win an award for its heat pump project at 17th-century Raynham Hall near Fakenham which reduces heating costs by 64 per cent.

Grade 1 listed property, Raynham Hall.

Finn Geotherm won Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Initiative of the Year in the Heating & Ventilating Review (HVR) Awards 2019.

The HVR awards has been championing innovation, excellence and achievement across the heating and ventilating industry for the past 10 years. The HVAC Initiative category saw Finn Geotherm competing as the only installer alongside national heating manufacturers.

Built in 1621, Raynham Hall is lived in by Charles, the eighth Marquess Townshend, who inherited the property in 2010. At £36,000, the annual heating bill was too expensive and the boiler desperately needed to be upgraded. Finn Geotherm specified and installed a ground source heat pump which has cut heating costs and the amount of energy consumed has been reduced by 72.6 per cent.

Guy Ransom, commercial director at Finn Geotherm, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have won this HVR Award for an installation which has made such a difference at Raynham Hall. Raynham Hall is an ideal illustration of the massive impact a heat pump can have in heating properties of any age or size.

“Heat pumps are so often overlooked as there is still the misconception that all homes must have a good Energy Performance Certificate rating or high levels of insulation installed for a ground or air source system to work effectively. This is simply not the case, as the installation at Raynham Hall proves.

“We hope that through initiatives such as these prestigious awards, we can encourage more people to consider heat pumps as a viable solution in the transition from fossil fueled heating and the desperate need to cut carbon emissions.”
