Air & ground source heating design and installation

Heating your home, not our planet.

Read about our customers’ stories, how together we helped reduced energy costs and carbon

Snugg Systems has helped many home owners heat their homes, from old to new, small to large; take a look at our customer projects and see what they have to say.

Retro FIT Detached Home!

“We wanted a system that would give us energy security with little to no hassle in running. Our air source heat pump is fantastic. I cannot believe how easy it is to control and we never have to wait for an oil delivery ever again. The house is toasty. The best choice we could have made.”

Our clients were looking for a renewable technology that would provide them with fuel security and reduce their carbon footprint. The side benefit was that they saved money on the running costs and received the RHI payment. Part of the property is new and the other part hundreds of years old and was a traditional working windmill.

Kris and David went about renovating the older part of the building and adding insulation helping to reduce the heat requirement, so much so they could heat the whole of their home and all their domestic hot water requirements with one 14kW Ecodan heat pump.

1970s Detached Home!

“We wanted to change our smelly oil boiler for something more environmentally friendly, but reducing our carbon was the most important factor. On top of the carbon saving we now don’t have the oil tank, or oil deliveries and its cheaper to run. We’re really happy we changed over, the children can play in the garden without the fumes, and we as parents feel we have invested in their future.”

Our clients approached us seeking an air source heat pump system to heat their home and reduce their carbon footprint. Following a comprehensive survey, we assessed heat losses and identified necessary improvements for eligibility for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). With cavity walls already insulated and the attic re-insulated to meet RHI standards, energy requirements were significantly reduced. We discussed installation options, considering location, electrics, existing emitters, and space for internal installation.

After careful evaluation, we determined that placing the heat pump on the concrete slab, replacing the old oil boiler, was the most cost-efficient solution. We installed an Ecodan 8.5kW unit, with flow and returns routed to an enlarged airing cupboard housing the new unvented domestic hot water cylinder. The pressurised hot water system now delivers hot water to every tap and shower, eliminating the need for noisy power showers and freeing up loft space previously occupied by a large cold-water tank.

Barn Conversions!

“Heating a home like this was never going to be easy, but Snugg made it so easy. I never even think about the system, it runs itself”

The client wanted a system that would be flexible enough to heat an old barn and provide enough constant hot water for a large busy family. The ground floor has underfloor heating with the second floor taking advantage of both underfloor and radiators.

Due to the type of building and access restrictions, the owners wanted the external ground works to be confined to a small area and completed within a tight time frame.

We designed a borehole array consisting of 4 boreholes drilled to 50 m. This provides all the ground energy for their home, and was completed quickly and with little mess or disruption.

Here are some glowing testimonials from our valued customers

Snugg systems is highly recommended as Nick Haddon, an experienced and highly intelligent engineer, installed our Air Source Heat Pump and hot water cylinder or the heating and hot water supply to our self build home. I cannot thank Snugg Systems enough as they did a first class, very tidy and neat installation and helped us out when our original installer let us down. Nick and Jo are very reliable and there was very good customer communication throughout the project. Joanna takes the time to research into the system design beforehand which gave us a great outcome - you can be sure of an air source heat pump that is properly sized and fit for purpose with lots of energy savings too! Jo provided a great final handover pack for building control : sorting out everything including the all important grant, with information on regular maintenance schedules and how to adjust the system. Highly recommended x 2. Rest assured, they really know what they are doing!

Snugg Systems fitted our Mitsubishi Ecodan air source heat pump back in late 2022 and they were brilliant. We are located in West Sussex. We were coming to the end of our self build project and were getting quotes for heat pumps. Snugg Systems stood out way above the rest of the companies we approached, not only in price but also in how honest, friendly, knowledgeable, and how helpful they were. They are such an approachable team and helped us every step of the way, answering any questions we had as well as handling the entire BUS grant process on our behalf (the grant was subtracted from our final quote). The install was very efficient and thorough, and the engineer took the time to clearly explain how everything worked. And the customer service post install has been excellent. They always answer the phone and respond quickly to emails. Our heat pump has been running very efficiently for the last 18 months and I put this down to how well it was installed and set up. All in all I highly recommend Snugg Systems to anyone looking for a heat pump.

Snugg are nothing short of fantastic! We had our heat pump installed in March 2022. Jo and Emily guided us gently through the process, from getting the insulation up to scratch, through the Energy Performance Certificate (we've lived here 40 years so this had never been done) and onwards to installation and commissioning. They were on top of the job the whole time and picked up issues that we had not seen coming that would have impacted on our ability to receive the RHI. The process had it's ups and downs and we were kept informed about progress throughout. They also knew and communicated well with Roost, who installed the system (Who were also excellent.). Jo did all the paperwork and presented it to us on a memory stick- a great convenience! I must also mention Sean the electrician brought in by Snugg who worked long into the night to complete the final installation. Emily and Jo worked so well as a team, were totally professional but personable and kept us cautiously optimistic even when world issues of the day intervened. We have no hesitation in recommending Snugg to others.
