We are very happy with the heat pump and although I was a bit reluctant to embark on such a large project I am sure it was the right thing to do and would recommend that in this day of never ending energy prices it is a good investment.
I am sure that it will be a great selling point if we ever decide to sell the house. It is such a joy to have a warm house and not to be worrying about paying huge oil bills.
I have recommend Heacol to a number of people as I know Brendon is honest and reliable and in this day and age this is the most important aspect when undertaking such a large project
1. The Woods, Cowling, Yorkshire
After much research we decided a long time ago that a heat pump was the only way to reduce our enormous oil heating bills. What held us back was finding somebody who could design, source the components, install the whole system and warrant the lot.
Mr. Uys came to us on a recommendation from an architect and we have never regretted dealing with him. His knowledge of plumbing and heating systems is way above that of any average tradesman. His attention to detail and willingness to fine tune has been fantastic, especially as we live a good 90 minutes away from him.
A big change in our attitudes was required as the heating is left on continuously. On Mr Uys’s suggestion we eliminated all draughts, topped up the loft insulation. He found us a good quality "fleece” to insulate our thick stone walls from the inside. He had highlighted the cold spots with his infra red camera.
On the whole our existing radiators are coping well and we are comfortable. Everything just works as it should and on current performance, we expect our heating bills to be reduced by at least 25%.

We employed Brendon Uys to correct a major installation fault in our heating system. The existing system had been wrongly designed both as regards the heat pump selected and the hot water cylinder specification. Using a heat pump had seemed to be the only practicable alternative to the antiquated oil-fired boiler. However, we had started to believe that heat pumps were based on flawed technology.
Brendon quickly put us right. He managed the potentially disruptive task of replacing the original equipment superbly well. His cheerful manner and calm confidence was a tremendous change from a year of chaos and uncertainty.
Our questions about managing the new system were handled promptly and efficiently. We could not have been more pleased with the work and his after-sales service. We are now enjoying the benefits of a noise-free, cost-effective and comfortable solution to our demanding requirements
