Sustainable

Over the last 10 years we have gained particular experience in 'Green Building', sucessfully implementing several products, including ground source and air to water heat pumps, under floor heating, rainwater harvesting systems, photovoltaic technology..........

When installing quality equipment, it is vital that the installer meet a similar standard. When installing a system we make sure that not only the system is installed to the highest standards but the complimentary equipment is also high quality and installed properly.

Photovoltaic Solar Panels
‘Photovoltaic’ is a marriage of two words: ‘photo’, meaning light and’ voltaic’, meaning electricity. Photovoltaic technology, the term used to describe the hardware that converts solar energy into useable power, generates electricity from light.

Electricity from Photovoltaic Solar Panels
Convert the sun’s rays into electricity you can you in your home or business. Solar electricity generation is dependent on light intensity, not on heat or direct sunlight – so it works even on overcast days.

Solar Hot Water
Solar thermal systems generate heat collected in solar panels in a specially formulated solar fluid. This runs through pipe work that heats your water. A solar hot water system could generate all of your hot water requirements in summer and will contribute during the winter. Over the course of the year it could provide between 40 – 50% of your hot water.

Heat Pumps
Heat pumps take heat from one location, upgrade the heat and then use this to heat water. This can be used to provide a total heating solution throughout the year for both homes and commercial premises.

Geothermal (Ground Source) Heat Pumps
Ground source (or geothermal) pumps take heat from the ground and use it to heat water. Just a metre beneath the ground the temperature typically varies between 7 and 12 degrees C. This heat can be extracted and used for; under floor heating; standard radiators; domestic hot water and skirting board radiators.
This heating system usually consists of a ground loop; either as a set of pipes buried in the ground or submerged in a body of water. The requirement for a ground loop often means that geothermal systems are installed in properties with large areas of land. However, compact heat collectors designed to minimise space requirements are now also available. Bore holes can also be utilised, therefore the benefits of a heat pump are made available to almost anyone.

Air Source Heat Pumps
Air source heat pumps extract heat from the air and use it to heat water. This heat can be extracted and used for; under floor heating; standard radiators; domestic hot water and skirting board radiators. This heating system usually consists of a heat exchanger on an outside wall. This outdoor unit looks like a typical air conditioning system.

Rainwater Harvesting
These systems are designed to store the large amounts of rainwater that falls on your roof everyday. This water is filtered and then recycled for household and commercial uses such as toilet flushing, clothes washing, cleaning vehicles and watering the garden.

The systems are designed for both commercial and domestic use. The domestic systems typically enable the user to reduce their main water usage by up to 50%. Commercial systems stand to save even more due to the typically large roof size and high demand for non-potable water.
