A large, listed church is heated efficiently by an air source heat pump

This case study focusses on the experience of St Egelwin the Martyr church (Diocese of Leicester) updating their heating. Initially they suffered a major set back when an electric under-floor heating project failed as a result of the poor judgments made by a contracted architect. When approaching the problem for a second time, they chose air source heat pumps, with four large but unobtrusive blower units installed in the aisles and directed towards the nave. 

The new system is very reliable, making it simple and cheap to run. Under-pew heaters are also used to provide supplementary heat on the coldest days.
