“Surely we have a responsibility to care for our blue planet” – David Attenborough.


With such publicity surrounding emission fuels and the harmful impact they have on the world, it’s time to take actions into our own hands, and contribute towards the conservation of the planet. With the UK being the 15th highest for emission fuels*, there is a considerable amount of work and effort that can be done by ourselves to help towards this cause. Although as a country, our carbon emissions are the lowest levels since the 19th century we can still do more for the preservation of the Earth simply by recycling, making a compost or even cycling instead of driving.


The use of renewable energy sources, is also a key way in which we can help the planet. Which is why we want to be able to provide you with as many renewable sources as possible, with some of the available options being;
• Solar PV panels
• Solar thermal panels
• Air source heat pumps
• Ground source heat pumps

 

Solar PV Planet

Solar PV panels are the latest technology in renewable energy and operate using a silicon-based technology to absorb sunlight to be transferred to produce electricity for your home, in-turn reducing your energy bills and your carbon footprint. With very little maintenance required they would be a great investment for your home.

 

Solar Thermal Panels

Solar thermal panels are very similar to Solar PV panels in the way that they operate, but there is one fundamental key difference. Solar thermal panels are used to heat water within the home heating system instead of being used for electricity purposes. Although Solar thermal panels will be very

much less effective in the deep, dark wintery days, they are able to provide excellent efficiency in the heights of summer (English weather pending) and are able to produce around 2/3’s of your homes annual hot water needs.

 

Air Source Heat Pumps

Air source heat pumps are a great way of extracting any heat from the outside air, and turning it into heat within your home and it is even capable of operating at temperatures as low as -20 degrees. Air source heat pumps are also one of the most efficient ways of heating your home, with some managing to be 300% more efficient, you would definitely be getting a great amount of heat for your money!

 

Ground Source Heat Pumps

As opposed to the air source heat pump, the ground source heat pump is able to provide a more constant level of heat for your

 home throughout the whole year, even in the depths of winter. Ground source heat pumps operate by using pipes that are buried beneath the ground and can then extract heat, which in turn, is then able to fully heat your home through any heating system within your home.

Along with reducing your carbon footprint and reducing your energy bills, installing our renewable energy sources can also lead to payment from the government as part of their domestic renewable heat incentive, click here for more details.

Reduce your summer water usage

The British summertime can either go one of 2 ways; intense sunshine for a prolonged length of time, or continuous rain all summer long and luckily this year, it’s the afore mentioned sunshine! So far, this summer has proved to be somewhat of a heatwave, which inevitably will lead to calls of a hosepipe ban to be enforced to save water.
