Renewables

Renewable energy technologies like solar, air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer an alternative to fossil fuels and can help reduce your homes CO2 emissions.

Solar Heating Worcester Greenskies solar panels

A typical well sized solar system should provide around 50-70% of the domestic hot water requirements of a home, representing a very worthwhile saving on hot water heating costs. The remaining hot water requirement is provided by the boiler.

The Worcester Greenskies solar panels are a perfect partner to the new range of condensing Greenstar regular and system boilers, with different models available in both oil and gas, which require a separate cylinder for the storage of hot water. When used together a Greenstar boiler and solar system provide a highly efficient system to give heating and hot water comfort.

Ground source

GSHP’s use the latent heat absorbed by the ground that is radiated by the sun daily no matter what the weather is doing above ground. Underground temperature remains constant, at around 12 degrees, and provides a reliable continual source of warm water which, harnessed with a glycol based GSHP system, gives a constant feed of hot water and heating into a property.

“Ground source heat pumps can generate four kilowatts of energy for every single kilowatt of electricity used”

GSHP’s are very efficient ways of heating your home and are in excess of 300% efficient. There are also more grants, feed-in tariffs and cash backs available for GSHP’s from various sources as it is a well established form of heating your home and a great long term investment.

Underfloor Heating

Whether you are updating your existing heating system or are embarking on a self-build project, the launch of Worcester’s new Greenfloor underfloor heating system means the leading boiler manufacturer now offers a complete range of energy-efficient heating solutions for your home.

Acting as efficient low-level radiators, Worcester’s Greenfloor underfloor heating system (UFH) uses a heated water filled pipe buried under the floor to deliver heat energy evenly into each room, gently warming the living space through a combination of radiant energy and heat conduction. As it is the entire floor area that provides the heat, the actual temperature needed is much lower than in a traditional radiator system and it eliminates any of those annoying cold spots around the room.

Perhaps surprising to some, UFH is suitable for use right throughout the home and with any floor covering from tiles to carpet.

The benefits do not stop there, Greenfloor UFH is low maintenance and in a modern, well insulated home, can even act as the primary heat emitter, replacing the need for radiators completely and freeing up wall space so there are no restrictions of where you can put your furniture!

Worcester’s Greenfloor UFH has also been designed to work in tandem with its existing range of heating solutions including its Greenstar boilers and renewable energy sources such as Greenstore ground source heat pumps and Greensource air source heat pumps for even great energy and monetary savings
