    Looking for some advice, I'm renovating a 2 bed flat (~75m2) which currently has no heating/hot water system. I took a punt and purchased a used energie solarblock with 8 panels. This was with a view to heat a cylinder/rads to around 40*C and supplement with instantaneous water heaters where needed for DHW.

    I'm having issues finding someone to install the system, I'm in North Yorkshire, can anyone provide any pointers? Have contacted some aircon/heat pump engineers but no luck so far. Keen to get in someone, if I do, that's experienced working with refrigerants. Failing that has anyone installed a thermodynamic system themselves? The installation manual is fairly comprehensive, any hidden pitfalls?

    Have you looked at swimming pool people, I think that is what the system is designed for.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but still no luck. Think I'll have to look into alternatives.
    Out of interest, do you know what sort of user had taken it out, and why?

    Not too sure on the original user, but they installed PV in it's place because of the financial incentives. I bought the unit from the PV installer who just wanted rid.
