Loaning Head is a house and holiday cottage. The owners will show people into their home to see the Pallazetti Ermione wood pellet boiler, installed by Logic of Appleby, and discuss the storage of pellets, how it works and costings. They have made changes to the house with double glazing and high levels of insulation where they can. The holiday cottage (unavailable to view) was renovated to high standards of insulation. The ground source heat pump was installed by drilling 95 m below the ground. The owner will provide information on the heat pump and how it works and show photos of the work that had to be done pre installation. The installation involved Ice energy and local heating engineer John Glendinning, with ground work done by the owners and drilling by Geocore. The owners also have car charging points outside both their properties.
