Mixergy: An integral partner in enhancing efficiency and excellence with Mbloc

February 7, 2024

Mixergy Approved Installers Mbloc have recently collaborated with The Chestnut Group on an exciting project with a predominant goal of being eco-friendly.

The project featured 7 individual sympathetically designed accommodation lodges in the grounds of The Weeping Willow pub in Barrow, Suffolk. All the lodges are designed to be as energy efficient and low carbon as possible.

Mbloc’s primary focus was researching and identifying innovative products entering the market that could complement their development design in terms of both efficiency and uniqueness.

These beautiful and unique lodges all have an incorporated air-to-air system as the main heating and cooling element, with each lodge having it’s own Mixergy smart hot water cylinder connected with solar PV.

Each lodge is designed to sleep either 2 or 4 people, and the Mixergy cylinders were specified to allow for a maximum capacity of 4 occupants.

Because of Mixergy’s unique ability to heat water from the top down, and ability to make the most of the solar PV, these cylinders are proving to save around 40% on the hot water energy consumption for each lodge.

We were very impressed by the quality of service and support received throughout the installation process, from setting up the tanks to connecting it to the Wi-Fi App. We then maintained communication with our client to ensure the tanks were performing well after installation, and they expressed great satisfaction with their performance. Due to our positive experience with Mixergy, we expanded our usage of their cylinders, incorporating them into our New Concept Buildings as well as using the cylinders for our sister company in the Traditional Building sector. Mixergy cylinders have now become our preferred choice and are specified in all projects undertaken by our three companies, including our new renewables venture, All-In Renewables.

This is a fantastic example of combining modern methods of construction, with renewable technology all installed and commissioned to a very high standard by the team at MBloc. High standards of design and installation really help give the client confidence and help them access the greatest possible energy savings, we look forward to working with the team again on many future projects.
