We have listed below several types of renewable energy that
we are able to offer.
Air Source Heat Pumps
Air source heat pumps works by absorbing outside air into a
fluid, this fluid is then passed through a compressor which raises the fluids
temperature. This now warmer fluid is then able to be used in you central
heating system indoors. Air source heat pumps can work in temperatures as low
as -15° which means that they are usually suitable to use all year round.
Ground source heat pumps use buried pipes in order to absorb
heat from the ground, which is then transferred to a fluid (a mix of water and
antifreeze) within the pipes. This fluid is then circulated through a heat
exchanger where the temperature is raised before it is then used in your homes
heating system. Due to the ground staying at a fairly constant temperature
throughout the year, the ground source heat pump can also be used year round.
Biomass boilers can use several different fuels – wood chip,
logs or wood pellets. A biomass boiler works in a similar way to a conventional
oil or gas fired domestic boiler, by burning the wood to create heat in order
to warm the central heating and hot water system.
Solar thermal uses panels on your roof in order to heat your
hot water. The hot water can be stored in a large tank. Solar thermal energy
can replace most hot water systems that already use a storage tank. If you are
currently using a combi boiler then the manufacturer would have to be contacted
to see if the boiler will accept pre heated water.
