Renewable Energy

As fuel prices continue to soar and look to continue doing so over the next few years also the impact on the environment is something that we all need to think about.

Hinckley Plumbing & Heating Services Ltd can see the future is in renewable sources of energy and of the three types which are most commonly available, solar and heat pumps will become more and more popular in the future. Please contact our helpful staff to arrange us to visit and give you a free quotation.

We have teamed up with major manufacturers to utilise their knowledge and experience in designing systems for these products and can offer advice, design and installation of systems.

Heat water for your home using energy from the sun.

Solar water heating systems use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. A conventional boiler or immersion heater can be used to make the water hotter, or to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable. From the perspective of a new installation Hinckley Plumbing & Heating Services Ltd custom design, supply and advise on solar systems.

The system can incorperate the latest condensing boiler thechnology, underfloor heating, or the traditional radiator system. The system is then coupled to a high performance Range Tribune Duplex stainless steel solar cylinder. We can incorperate electric heating systems and other heat sources including oil fired boilers with a specific cylinder configuration.

Heat your home with energy from the ground.

Ground source heat pumps use pipes which are buried in the garden to extract heat from the ground. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor or warm air heating systems and hot water in your home.

Financial Benefits

Another key factor for homeowners considering solar energy is the financial aspect.

The financial benefits of solar energy can be seen in reduced utility bills. In addition, by reducing your homes operating costs you are also increasing the value of your Home .

Is your current boiler compatible with solar water heating?

Most conventional boiler and hot water cylinder systems are compatible with solar water heating. But if your boiler is a combination boiler (combi) and you don't currently have a hot water tank, a solar hot water system may not be compatible. If you would prefer a stored hot water system we can offer a large range of stainless steel twin coil hot water cylinders for use with solar domestic hot water systems. Please contact us and we will be happy to check.
