Energy Efficiency

The main source of heating at Swinhay House is from heat pumps with the lake water used as the heat source.  The lake to the main entrance was excavated to 5 metres in depth and 7KM of pipe has been installed to feed the three heat pumps installed in the basement of the house. This is the most efficient means of heating the house in conjunction with the other measures taken to achieve maximum efficiency.

  • Swinhay House has been highly insulated and sealed. The areas underground have been insulated with 750mm of polystyrene insulation. The connections between the walls and the roof have been sealed with Polyurethane insulation.
  • There is a  fresh air heat exchanger providing air circulation to the house. The fresh air source is from ducts beneath the garden. The temperature of the ground pre heats the air in the winter and cools the air in the summer.
  • There is a 120KVA Photovoltaic Array, this supplies enough energy to power the house. The PV array makes the house zero loss.
