Air Source Heat Pumps
Air source heat pump installations have become increasingly popular as they offer far more benefits than a traditional boiler. They are the most cost-effective renewable energy source available to heat/cool your home, as well as producing hot water all year round. An air source heat pump absorbs heat energy from the outside air to heat your radiators or underfloor heating.
Having an air source heat pump installed is ideal if you're looking for a sustainable, cost-effective heating solution that will save you money on your energy bills for years to come. An air-source heat pump will replace your traditional heating system, so it is suitable for both new builds and renovation projects.
Ground Source Heat Pumps
A ground source heat pump installation will ensure the heat from the ground outside your home is transferred into the heat in your radiators or underfloor heating. It can also heat water stored in a hot water cylinder for your hot taps and showers.
The system works by absorbing heat from the ground via a loop of pipe buried in your garden or outdoor space. This loop could either be a long or coiled pipe buried in trenches, or a long loop (called a ‘probe’) inserted into a borehole with a diameter of around 180mm. The result? An incredibly cost-effective system.
Heat pumps are more efficient than other heating systems because the amount of heat they produce is more than the amount of electricity they use. The amount of heat produced for every unit of electricity used is known as the Coefficient of Performance (CoP). So, if a heat pump has a CoP of 3.0, then it will give out three units of heat for every unit of electricity consumed. (Source: Energy Saving Trust website)
Ground source heat pumps are ideal for homeowners who want the most cost-effective heating solution available. A ground source heat pump will replace your traditional heating system, making them suitable for both new builds and when refurbishing an existing property.
Air Conditioning Systems
Air conditioning installation has become increasingly popular in the UK over the last few years. Air conditioning systems can provide cooling and heating and is a great option for garden offices, loft conversions, extensions and when updating existing properties. Our F-GAS registered engineers can install air conditioning systems throughout domestic and commercial properties.
Solar Thermal Panels
Solar Thermal panels are an excellent way to heat the hot water used in your house using a completely free renewable energy source - the sun. The panels are mounted on your roof to absorb the sun's heat, which is in turn used to heat up water. If fitted correctly, they can provide free hot water for a large proportion of the year. For more information about solar panel installation, call us today on 01892 280442 or fill in the form here.
Bivalent (Hybrid) Systems
A Bivalent system is one where a heat pump is used alongside an additional or existing heat source, such as a boiler, therefore creating a hybrid system.
Typically, it describes fitting a heat pump alongside a fossil fuel (gas, oil or LPG) boiler. With our 20+ years of experience at hand, and being Gas Safe and OFTEC registered, Wells Renewables are experts in combining fossil fuel appliances with heat pumps and installing bivalent systems in commercial and domestic properties.
Mechanical Vent Heat Recovery (MVHR) Systems
Mechanical Vent Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems work by taking warm, damp air from within the home, from rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom. The air is processed through a heat exchanger, then circulated back through into your living areas. The result is cleaner, fresher air being delivered in an entirely sustainable way, creating a comfortable and condensation-free environment all year round.
At Wells Renewables we don’t only install renewable heat sources, we can offer advice on how to improve the energy efficiency of your existing system. This could be replacing your heating controls or simply setting up a gas fired heating system correctly so that it runs at it’s most efficient rate.
