West Sussex

A Grade I listed Elizabethan mansion with prestigious rental retirement living located in the beautiful South Downs.

The requirement was to reduce reliance on oil for both financial and environmental reasons, while providing reliable heat to cope with high demand for heating and hot water throughout the year.

Baystar installed a 199kW pellet automatic biomass boiler including a feed systemin a new purpose-built external plant room in-keeping with traditional Sussex Barns style, alongside a district heating system to pipe the heat around the main house. This involved sympathetically upgrading the heating system and overcoming difficult working conditions in the basement of this listed building.

A project of this size will earn c£28,000 per annum in Renewable Heat Incentive payments for 20 years, and the fuel cost saving will be approximately 25%.


“Not only were Baystar excellent value for money, but they have been delightful to deal with and always been prompt in addressing any concerns. They seemed to me to be one of the few companies offering to install a biomass boiler who could provide genuine independent engineering expertise.”
