Commercial heat pumps are an efficient way to heat your business. They are available in both air-source and ground-source models, both of which use a heat exchange process to transfer heat from outside the building to the inside.
Air-source heat pumps use the air as a heat source, while ground-source heat pumps use the constant temperature of the ground as a heat source. By using a heat pump, you can save on energy costs and reduce your environmental footprint.
Case Study: Ivyhouse
As part of this project, two new ETA Hack 200KW biomass boilers were installed to replace the old oil boilers that were previously used to heat the eight houses and industrial building on the property.
Before the installation of the biomass boilers, significant groundworks had to be undertaken to create a suitable site for the new boilers. This included the excavation of a new fuel store, the installation of a new heating distribution system, and the modification of the existing heating infrastructure.
Since the installation of the new biomass boilers, Ivyhouse has seen a significant reduction in their energy bills and has become much less reliant on grid power. In addition, the old oil boilers have been retained as a backup in case of any maintenance issues with the biomass boilers.
Overall, the installation of the new biomass boilers has been a success for Ivyhouse, reducing their carbon footprint, lowering their energy bills, and supporting the local economy.
Commercial solar panels for heating can provide a cost-effective, zero-emission solution to your heating needs. They are a great way to reduce your energy bills, while also helping to protect the environment. Solar panels capture the sun's energy and convert it into heat, which is then used to warm your space.
Commercial solar panels are specially designed to withstand the elements, providing a safe and reliable source of heating for years to come. Installing solar panels can also help you take advantage of various government and utility incentives. With a range of options available, you can find the perfect system to meet your heating needs.
Case Study: Heathfield Court
Heathfield Court, a collection of 25 bungalows owned and maintained by Stoke-based social-housing company, Unitas asked if we were able to change the old heating system to a more efficient and self-sustaining one.
We proposed a shared, ground-source heat pump system that utilised a shared loop. This system allows customers to control their own heating while utilising the same boreholes, saving money overall in heating the bungalows.
We noted that the rooves of the bungalows would be perfect for solar panels to which we installed 8 solar panels per bungalow.
Overall, out of the residents, 24 out of 25 said they were very satisfied with the work that we had done.
A plant room is an essential part of a heating system, providing the necessary components and infrastructure to ensure efficient, reliable and safe operation. The room houses various components such as boilers, pumps, valves, hot water cylinders and controls, which are all connected to the pipework system.
A well-maintained plant room will help to keep your heating system running smoothly and reduce the need for expensive repairs. It is important to regularly check and clean the plant room to ensure all components are functioning correctly and all safety checks are up to date. Regular maintenance and servicing of your plant room can help to prevent costly breakdowns and keep your heating system running smoothly.
