Britchards are particularly active within the renewable energy sector. We offer most renewable energy based technologies including air source & ground source heat pumps & solar thermal hot water systems.
There has been increased emphasis on the use of renewable energy products in recent years. The government has introduced incentives encouraging domestic and commercial property owners to have renewable energy products installed. Changes to Building Regulations has also led to increased use of heat pumps.
With ever increasing energy costs heat pumps offer a cost effective alternative to the use of natural gas, oil and LPG fired boilers.
Britchards are an approved/manufacturer trained installers for Mitsubishi, Daikin & Nibe; some of the leading brands. We can offer a competitive, dependable and professional solution.
Types of Renewable Energy Undertaken
Air Source – Air Source heat pumps work by extracting heat from the outside air which is then absorbed into the unit as a fluid. This fluid then passes through a compressor where its temperature is increased before then passing through a heat exchanger to provide heat to serve heating and hot water systems.
Ground Source – Ground source heat pumps work in a similar way to air source except instead of extracting heat from the outside air, heat is drawn from the ground via buried pipe loops or boreholes.
Solar Thermal Hot Water Systems – Solar thermal hot water systems use roof mounted solar panels/collectors to collect heat from the sun which is then used to indirectly heat the water in hot water cylinders.
