We have a range of renewable options that will give you the best possible setup for your specific requirements

Ground source heat pumps

A Ground Source heat pump basically works as an inverted refrigerator, it extracts heat by using pipes laid out in the ground known as ground loops. Ground loops run in the ground much like under floor heating in a house about 1.2M depth and 1M apart, this can take up a lot of room. Where space is an issue, boreholes can be drilled and just as effective.When boreholes are used, specialist-drilling companies are required to carry out the work.

Ground source has a higher installation cost but more efficient in the long term and also has a higher RHI payback. Ground source heat pumps work well with under floor heating, they don’t tend to work too well with traditional radiator systems however new low temperature radiators or can be used.

Single phase or 3 phase units available.

• Low Starting Current

• Low Noise Levels

• High Efficiency

• Reduced Running Costs

Key points to consider;

Correct existing heating – under floor

Enough insulation in house/ heat loss of the property

Space for ground loops/ correct type of soil/ will boreholes be required

Ideal for new builds and renovations, not upgrading heating systems


Air Source Heat Pumps

An air source heat pump basically works as an inverted refrigerator; it extracts the heat out of the air even up to -20 degrees Celsius. Air source heat pumps are ideal as they are installed outside and require no preparation work unlike ground source, they are cheaper to install, however the RHI payback is less.

Heat pumps work excellently with under floor heating they don’t tend to work too well with traditional wet radiator systems however new low temperature radiator can be used.

• Ideal solution for sites where space is tight.

• Simple to install.

• Low starting current.

• Low noise levels.

• High efficiency.

• Reduced running costs.

Key points to consider;

Correct existing heating – under floor

Enough insulation in house

Ideal for new builds and renovations, not upgrading heating systems


Solar Thermal

Uses alcohol water mixed liquid to circulate in the solar panels to extract heat from the sun and in turn heat a tank in the house to use for heating and hot water. Normally used alongside another heat source such as heat pumps/biomass for best results. Solar thermal can then be used to provide hot water in the summer months as well as boosting hot water production in winter. This provides a very efficient system that could reduce your hot water bill by up to 60%.


Heat Recovery

Used mainly in new builds that are passive with extremely high insulation levels. A ducting system is installed to extract excess heat from rooms within the house then warms fresh air coming into other rooms to provide heating. Normally a small stove is required to act as a boosting facility.
