Helping Reduce Our Carbon Footprint
By the use of renewable energy sources, you not only will reduce your gas and electric bills but would also be reducing your carbon footprint.
Add to those excellent reasons the fact that there are government financial incentives in place so it’s a great time to introduce renewable energy in your home.
Nottingham Developments Limited have specifically set up a Plumbing, Heating & Renewable Energy Division in order that we can offer expert advice to our customers on all fronts. We can offer several different types of sustainable, alternative energy solutions, as follows:
Heat Pumps are an extremely cost effective method of providing heating to your home or work place, and Nottingham Developments Limited can install for you a high quality heat pump which is both extremely efficient and fully capable of generating heat which isn’t possible through other heating processes.
Ground Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the ground, which is then converted into hot water for use in heating. Underfloor heating and low temperature radiators as used to distribute this heat. Not only can your property be heated by the ground source heat pump but it can provide hot water requirements as well. During the summer months the heat pump can also provide active cooling, which will assist in reducing room temperatures during summer months when required.
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the air outside and can still be effective in temperature as low as -15degrees. They can provide sufficient hot water to provide for the heating requirements of a property and also provide the heat for hot water production. Underfloor heating and low temperature radiators are ideal for heating a property with a air source heat pump. Air source heat pumps can also provide active cooling.
The Benefits of Ground & Air Source Heat Pumps:
- Drastically reduce fuel bills as they run on electricity
- Makes gas, oil or solid fuels redundant in the home
- Reduce your carbon footprint
- More efficient than using electrically powered radiators/fires
Nottingham Developments Limited can also offer solar renewable energy sources:
Solar Photovoltaic (Solar PV) provides a, clean, cost effective and a completely environmentally friendly form of energy as they capture the sun’s energy by using photovoltaic cells, which do not require direct sunlight to work, and can still generate electricity on a cloudy day. These PV cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can then be used to power household appliances, lighting, with the excess sold to the National Grid under the government’s Feed-In-Tariff. Payback periods on can be around 7 to 8 years even at the 0.21p/kwh rate. Typically the installation of a 4Kw system would be from around £8500.00.
Benefits of Solar PV Electricity:
- Sunlight is free, once you’ve paid for the initial installation – Free electricity
- Sell your surplus electricity back to the National Grid
- Solar electricity is ‘green’ – a renewable energy with zero carbon dioxide CO2
- A typical home solar PV system can save 1 metric tonne of CO2 every year
- Which will equate to over 30 metric tonnes in its lifetime
- Can provide some of the energy required to run a heat pump, therefore making heating and providing hot water even cheaper
Solar Thermal water heating is a renewable energy method for generating hot water in the home. It works by extracting the heat from the outside daylight and sunlight and then converting it to allow the heating of a hot water cylinder. Solar thermal panels fitted onto a roof at an optimal angle, the panels are known as flat plate collectors or evacuated tube collectors. The cylinder is also fitted with an immersion heater to ensure hot water can be provided 365 days per year. Solar thermal is an extremely efficient way of providing hot water.
Benefits of Solar Thermal:
- Save on fuel bills
- Eligible for renewable heat incentives
- Works all year round during the day
- Costs less than other micro-generation systems to install
