New build - Lewdown (almost Devon!)

With the amount of air source and ground source heat pumps we fit these days, it's not very often we install a gas boiler in a new build but we did on the one! Couple to underfloor heating throughout, this project in Lewdown is now very nearly finished.

Stunning sea front new build - Downderry

We're just about to start on site with this gorgeous cliff-top property in south-east Cornwall. The house will benefit from our usual in-house underfloor heating which is designed with very close pipe spacing to work perfectly with a heat pump. Another of the ever popular Vaillant Arotherm air source heat pumps will be powering the heating and hot water here, giving the customer low running costs, 7 years of RHI payments and the peace of mind given by the 7 year parts and labour warranty that we offer with all Vaillant heat pumps.

New build, Truro

New photos to show the integrated solar thermal and on roof/flat roof solar PV systems in place.

Double Solar PV installation near Bodmin

Two systems installed onto two adjacent properties. We recommended an 'all black' panel and a low profile mounting system to reduce the visual impact on the natural slate roof. The customer was delighted and said "it looks much better than some of the ones in the village that your competition have done" - we can't argue with that!

Retro Fit, St Mawes

Our customer in St Mawes chose a solar pv system from us featuring all-black Hyundai 245W panels. This choice gave the least visual impact for the installation, which also had to be designed to take account of the roof shape and the existing Velux rooflights. Installed towards the end of July and before the recent drop in the Feed in Tariff rate, the customer is now locked into a 25 year payback. With the much-reduced installation cost compared to 2011, this installation represents good value, and should pay for itself within a few years thanks to Cornwall enjoying more sunlight hours than any other region of the UK.

Ground source heat pump for re-build at Padstow

When this customer chose to undertake such an extensive re-build of his home, it seemed an ideal time to raise insulation levels and improve the thermal efficiency of the property. With standards close to those of a new-build, it was decided to insure against fossil-fuel price increases by installing a 20kW Kensa ground source heat pump. With a higher-than-normal requirement for a domestic property (on account of the large size of the property), the Kensa heat pump was chosen as it can deliver the output required while needing only a single-phase electricity supply.

Discrete solar water heating near Padstow

We have been chosen to supply, install and commission a solar thermal system near Padstow. The customer was concerned to find a system that matched his rooflights, meaning we had to choose a system that would be mounted in-roof. The Worcester Bosch Solar Lifestyle system provided the ideal solution, as the flashing kit that comes with the system means it can be mounted in-roof in the same way as the Velux rooflights on the same elevation.
As well as a system with the desired aesthics, the customer will benefit from our MCS-accreditation for solar thermal installations. When the system is commissioned, he will qualify for a 300 pound cash-back under the Renewable Heat Premium Payment, with the potential for ongoing tariff payments from next year, when the Renewable Heat Incentive will begin.

Major refurbishment of Penpol property

This customer wanted to capture free energy from the sun, so chose us to install a high-efficiency Worcester-Bosch Greenskies evacuated-tube solar thermal system. Generally accepted to be more efficient year-round than traditional flat-plate systems, and with the benefit of Cornwall’s high number of sunlight hours, this system will make a significant contribution to the property’s domestic hot water needs. Heating is also provided by our own designed underfloor heating systems.

New-build, Wadebridge

With the challenges presented by the design of the Glulam roof, this customer needed us to design his solar photovoltaic system. We were able to design a fixing system that took account of the curves of the roof, and the homeowner is enjoying free daytime electricity from his Sanyo 4kW system, with the advantage of tax-free payments under the Feed-in-Tariff scheme.
The homeowner has also combined a 2-panel on-roof Worcester Bosch solar thermal system with a 14kW Mitsubishi Ecodan air source heat pump, both supplying a 400 litre Gledhill hot water cylinder.
With space heating provided by our own fully-designed underfloor heating throughout, we have been able to provide a complete energy-efficiency solution.

Refurbishment, Perranporth

The customer wanted to upgrade and modernise his home. Working closely with the main contractor, we supplied and installed multiple renewable technologies, PLUS a complete plumbing and electrical installation, plant room and liquid screed for the ground floor.
The customer chose a field-mounted 4kW Hyundai solar photovoltaic system, mounted away from the house in an unobtrusive location. Heating and domestic hot water are provided by a 12kW Kensa heat pump and boreholes. Domestic hot water generation is supplemented by a Worcester Bosch Solar-Lux 12-tube evacuated panel system, with both the heat pump and the solar panel supplying a Gledhill Stainless-Lite 300 litre hot water cylinder.
Our underfloor heating is installed in a liquid screed on the ground-floor, with the first-floor pipe installed from below to minimise disturbance to the existing floor.
This contract demonstrates our ability to supply a wide range of products and services, giving the customer a complete solution and the peace of mind of a single-contracting point.
