A heat pump captures heat from outside and moves it into your home. It uses electricity to do this, but the heat energy delivered to your home is much more than the electrical energy used to power the system.
Solar PV (Solar Photovoltaics) is the generation of electricity using energy from the sun. Modern solar panels produce electricity from daylight and do not require direct sunlight, although more electricity is produced on bright, sunny days
The majority of UK homes have a wet central heating system, which generally refers to a gas, oil or LPG boiler.
Approximately one quarter of heat is lost through the roof of an uninsulated home, even if your loft is converted to a living space. By insulating your roof, you can save £100’s on energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
Wall insulation is any type of insulating material that is attached to or placed within walls. Normally, the main function of wall insulation is to increase the climate efficiency of the space by making it easier to heat and cool the room.
Approximately 15% of heat is lost from a house through the floor. Insulation prevents this and acts to prevent draughts coming up through the floorboards.
