Solar Thermal

Solar Thermal Energy is the best known and most popular form of domestic renewable energy. The sun’s energy is collected by solar panels which are oriented towards the sun in order to warm the property’s water.

Manufacturers state that an average property should receive around 60-70% of the properties total hot water demands from solar thermal systems. Contrary to common belief, a lot of solar energy can still be gained from solar collectors even on cloudy days.

Air to Air Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat Pumps have been used in Scandinavian countries for over twenty years as they are an incredibly efficient way of using the outside temperature to give heating and cooling within a building.

An air to air heat pump is an all-in-one heating and cooling system that is designed to provide year-round comfort. The Greensource Air to Air Heat Pump converts the energy from the air outside into heat and then circulates warm air internally to provide a comfortable temperature inside the home.

Air to Water Heat Pumps

Air to Water heat pumps work in much the same way as air to air, they use the latent heat in the air to generate heat but instead of heating the air this heat is then fed into a wet central heating system such as radiators or underfloor heating. They use a small amount of electricity and are in excess of 300% efficient.

Due to air to water units only needing electricity for operation, it makes it an ideal choice when refurbishing an existing property, replacing oil fired boiler replacements, new builds or areas with restricted mains gas. This is the ideal opportunity to upgrade to a proven, dependable and cost effective option.
