Our Solar Panels in Bristol
If you are considering solar panels for your Bristol home, the solar thermal system we offer is, in fact, considered one of the most efficient systems you can choose for collecting heat and fueling hot water for your home.
A typical solar system we provide throughout Bristol consists of panels attached to your roof, which will absorb the sun’s heat. This heat is then transferred to the water in a hot water cylinder via a cylinder coil.
Our solar panels in Bristol can offer a range of benefits including;
- Endless amount of energy, all free of charge,
- No CO2 emissions are produced during operation, helping you to reduce your carbon footprint,
- Savings on your money bills. You could use up to 60% less energy when heating water and 35% less energy for space heating,
- A huge reduction in consumption of fossil fuels,
- An efficient system, even in the winter.
Our Air Source Heat Pumps in Bristol
The air source heat pumps we provide throughout Bristol could serve as another excellent alternative solution to heating your home. It could, in fact, be an ideal solution if you are looking to generate your own heat and save money on your energy bills, especially if you are replacing an electric, oil, LPG or coal system.
An air-source heat pump system will be placed outside, either at the side or back of your home. It will take heat from the air and boost it to a higher temperature using a heat pump. Even though the system will need electricity to run, it will use less electrical energy than the heat it provides.
There are two different types of air-source heat pumps, air-to-water and air-to-heat. An air-to-water system will take heat from the outside air and feed it into your wet central heating system, whereas an air-to-heat system will take heat from the outside air and into your home through fans.
Our Ground Source Heat Pumps in Bristol
Ground source heat pumps are systems that use pipes buried in your garden, to extract heat from the ground. This heat can then be used in radiators, an underfloor system, a warm air heating system and hot water in your Bristol home.
In addition to heating your home, a ground source heat pump system will be able to cool your home during the summer months too.
The ground source heat pump systems we provide in Bristol have a range of advantages, including;
- They are environmentally friendly compared to other types of heating systems,
- You will be eligible for payments under the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme,
- They are low maintenance once installed,
- They use renewable resources.
A ground source heat pump will also use less CO2 than other forms of heating systems, particularly electric heating and coal. You’ll also find that the system will have lower running costs, yet the overall figure will depend on what you are switching from. If you are switching from an electric heating system you could save over £500 a year!
