Upgrading your home heating systems using eco-friendly renewable energy is easy and worthwhile. At Royal Renewables, we would be delighted to discuss what options may be right for you.
Some of the products and services we provide include:
Although the weather in Ireland could be considered to be unpredictable, it is also generally mild enough. The environmental factors around us such as air, soil, rivers, lakes, etc. provide us with readily available heat energy. This pure heat energy can efficiently heat a home with help from a heat pump. At Royal Renewables, we can advise you as to which heat pump is right for your home.
We can’t imagine anything better than getting out of bed on a cold winter morning and placing our feet on a lovely, warm floor. With underfloor heating, you can! It provides a level of comfort that is becoming increasingly more popular. It also provides an obvious aesthetic advantage over conventional radiators, which can take up precious space in all the rooms in your home.
If you’re looking to start leaving a better carbon footprint, installing solar panels on your home may be a good place to start. Solar panels are probably the most common form of renewable energy in Ireland due to their long term affordability. On a basic level, solar panels work by absorbing sunlight and using it to heat water for showers, baths and hot taps. Apart from the obvious non-polluting advantages of solar panels, solar panels will also ultimately save you money.
Solar PV (photovoltaics) works on the same general principles as solar panels, except that they absorb daylight and convert that light directly into electricity. Solar PV requires little to no maintenance and requires only daylight to work; this means they will be fully functioning on cloudy, rainy days and all through the winter months.
Older, more traditional boilers are often uneconomical and prone to wasting energy. Much of the heat they produce is lost up the chimney, making them expensive to run. Replacing your old boiler with a high efficiency model ensures that you’re not losing heat, as they capture most of heat that would have otherwise been lost. With a high efficiency boiler, you will experience increased comfort and reduced heating bills, as well as being safe in the knowledge you’re operating a more eco-friendly heating system.
We can advise on and install either oil and gas high efficiency boilers in your home.
We can easily help you change how you manage heating in your home. Installing and using heating controls economically can help you reduce your energy usage by 20%. Heating control allows you to split your home into “zones” that can each be independently heated and cooled as you wish. This means you can match your heating and hot water supply to match the varying living and working schedules in your home. As with all environmentally friendlier heating options, installing heating control upgrades in your home can help to save you money in the long run.
