Solar electricity (PV) and heating

Solar panels – or photovoltaic (PV systems) – are designed to generate electricity through nothing but the sun’s rays. Often crafted from thin layers of crystal, these solar panels harness the energy in daylight and generate direct current electricity. Solar thermal heating operates in a comparable manner, using the energy taken from sunlight to heat hot water and internal heating systems. Cost-effective and one of the most common forms of green energy, solar panels have steadily become a regular sight throughout the UK. Learn more about our Solar Panel Installation service.

Fuel-efficient boilers

Gas central heating has long been commonplace in modern homes, providing round-the-clock warmth and hot water in residential and commercial properties. However, many traditional gas boilers are far from efficient, so updating your boiler to a fuel-efficient model represents one of the most effective green energy options in which you can invest. Not only will you be purchasing a green alternative, but the running costs and level of performance will be greatly enhanced.


Ground source heat pumps

A further option for green energy is a ground source heat pump. As the name implies, these pumps are able to utilise the natural heat found in the Earth to help warm your property. Unlike heating systems that require the burning of fossil fuels to operate, a ground source heat pump uses natural, renewable resources to deliver the energy to your home, thereby representing a sustainable green energy solution.
