As biomass specialists, we can install, repair and service biomass boilers and heating systems throughout Essex and Suffolk.
Solar water heating systems use solar panels. These panels are called collectors and are fitted onto your roof. These panels will collect heat from the sun and use it to heat your water that stores in a hot water cylinder. An immersion heater or gas boiler can be used as a back up to heat the water to a higher temperature you require.
Solar panels work by collecting clean, renewable energy in the form of sunlight. The solar panels convert that sunlight into electricity which can then provide electrical power.
Wood-fuelled heating systems are also called biomass systems. They burn chips, logs or wood pellets to heat a single room or they can power hot water boilers and central heating systems.
Air Source Heat Pump
ASHPs (Air Source Heat Pumps) can absorb heat from the air outside. ASHPs can heat your hot water and your home even when the temperature outside drop to -15°C. The heat from the air absorbs at low temperature into a fluid. The fluid will pass through a compressor; this will increase the temperature of the liquid and then transfer heat to the hot water and heating systems of the house.
There are two main types of Air source heat pumps, air-to-air and air-to-water. The method you choose will determine the type of heat distribution system you require.
A central heating stove will combine two functions in just a single appliance. The fire of the stove will provide comfort and heat in your living area. The stove will also provide energy for the pre-heating of water for the central heating system and hot water.
Cold water flows to the central heating stove and is heated using a heat exchanger from the heat the stove produces.
The installation of thermal stores are a way of managing and storing renewable heat until it is required. In a residential property, the heated water can be stored in a well-insulated cylinder with a large capacity. These are often called an accumulator tank or a buffer. Thermal stores have shown to work exceptionally well with heat pumps, wood-fuelled biomass boilers, solar water heating systems and wind energy.
