Biomass Boilers: Work by burning wood pellets, wood chips, waste products or bio-oil, creating energy to heat your hot water and heating systems.
Micro CHP: (Combined heat and power) Different types of technologies are used to achieve this including combustion engines, Stirling engines and fuel cells. They all provide heat and hot water for the property whilst generating electricity that can be fed back to the grid (feed in tariff) or used to run your home or business, offsetting the energy normally used.
Solar Thermal: Provides hot water for the home by capturing solar energy through flat plate connectors or evacuated tubes on your roof and uses it to heat hot water in your cylinder. It usually works in tandem with a high efficiency boiler which provides your heating.
Air to Water Heat Pumps: Provides heating and hot water by taking energy from outside and transferring it to the heating system via a heat pump.
Air to Air Heat Pumps: This is essentially an air conditioning unit working in reverse, drawing air into the unit, heating it up and pumping it out into the room to warm it rather than cool it.
Ground Source Heat Pumps: Draws energy from the ground and converts it via the heat pump into useful energy that can provide you with heating and hot water.
Atmospheric Energy Panels: This works by absorbing heat energy from the atmosphere and unlike solar panel systems, atmospheric energy panels do not rely on the sun light and can provide 100% of your hot water and heating requirements 24/7 for 365 days a year. These panels can be mounted anywhere unlike other solar thermal systems.
Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery: This works by drawing in the energy that you would normally extract (e.g. in the kitchen and bathroom) and uses it to heat the fresh air that’s sucked in from the outside. Then the warm air is fed into the other rooms in the house like the bedrooms and living areas via air ducts. This solution needs to be designed into the house before it is built.
