Today is the day that the heat pump will be commissioned and the underfloor heating will start running.  The gylcol opened and ready to fill the ground loops (currently there is only water in the loops).

This wheelie bin is the  filling and flushing pump for the ground loops.  The glycol is poured into the bin...

The glycol in the bin...

The glycol is then pumped round the ground loops until all the air is removed.

The heat pump is now up and running. This is the heat pump display. It is very intuitive and easy to use.  You can have a go online at

The solar thermal panels were also commissioned today and so we will hopefully have a plentiful supply of free hot water.  The water cylinder is quite large (about 400 litres) to take advantage of sunny days and store as much hot water as possible.
