Central Heating Systems


Having an energy efficient boiler or a renewable energy system running on a low carbon fuel is one of the most important steps you can take to reduce your fuel bills and your carbon dioxide emissions.

In a typical household, over half of the fuel bills are spent on heating the home and providing hot water. By improving the efficiency of your system you can help reduce your fuel bills and reduce your carbon emissions. 

Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP)


Air source heat pumps (ASHP) work by absorbing heat from the outside air and then transferring that heat into a home’s water or heating system.

For optimum efficiency it is important to make sure your home is adequately insulated. Insulation measures, such as cavity wall and loft insulation, will reduce the heat loss from your home and maximise how effective an air source heat pump will be.

The UK Government Boiler Upgrade Scheme can provide grants of up to £7,500 (as at March 2024) to households across England and Wales, to help homeowners to exchange their traditional heating for a low-carbon alternative such as an ASHP or ground source heat pump.

High Heat Retention Electric Storage Heaters (HHRESH)


Electric storage heaters are a cheaper alternative to regular electric heaters, using the Economy 7 tariff (an off-peak rate that provides cheaper electricity and therefore cheaper heating). Storage heaters work by heating up at night (off peak) and releasing that energy throughout the day.

Gas Condensing Boilers


Installing a new energy-efficient boiler is an efficient way to reduce energy bills. If you only have gas room heaters, or open fires, installing a full central heating system, (which includes a boiler, radiators, programmer and thermostatic radiator controls), will make your home easier to heat and reduce day-to-day costs.

Modern condensing boilers are more efficient as they have a larger heat exchanger, so they recover more heat.

Upgrading a boiler to a condensing boiler has the benefits of saving money on energy bills by having more efficient heating, reducing your carbon footprint and improving the energy performance rating of your home.
