Renewable Energy for your home

Heating through renewables can save money on energy bills and secure an income from the Government for generating your own electricity and producing your own heat.

Air Source Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat Pumps absorb heat from the air outside, and then use it to heat your home via radiators or underfloor heating, and can also be used to heat water.

Whilst they use electricity to run, because they extract the heat from the air, even in temperatures as low as -15°C, the energy they produce is highly renewable.

An additional benefit of the renewable nature of the energy source is that ASHPs can qualify for payments through the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive, meaning you get paid for installing the renewable technology. You can find out more about RHI here: https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/environmental-programmes/domestic-rhi

Air source heat pumps provide heat and hot water all year round. Highly efficient, for every unit of energy they use, they generate 3 or more to heat your home – that’s 300% efficient!

Solar

Installing solar PV panels on your home means you can save money on you energy bills and you will receive a payment from the Government’s Feed-in-Tariff. If you don’t use all the energy you produce, you can sell it back to the grid. To find out more visit https://www.ofgem.gov.uk/environmental-programmes/fit/about-fit-scheme

Solar Thermal

Solar thermal panels on your home will allow you to generate hot water all year. You can also claim incentive payments from the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Payments are available to customers for generating their own electricity through the Government Feed-in-Tariff. Similarly, payments are also available for those who generate their own heat through the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

Our Promise

All installers working as part of the Warmer Communities Partnership are checked and vetted to ensure that they are fully qualified to survey and install any energy saving home improvement in your homes. Our compliance team have verified their competency levels and insurance which can be provided to any applicant should this be requested

Renewable Energy for your home

Renewable energy measures help the environment, cut energy costs and provide an opportunity to receive an income for creating your own energy thanks to Government incentives such as The Feed-in-Tariff and The Renewable Heat Incentive.

Did you know?

  • In some cases, you can sell your renewable energy back to The National Grid if you don’t use it all.

What is it?

  • Energy generated from natural resources such as sunlight and wind can be captured and naturally replenished by measures which are installed to your property, creating renewable energy which you can use to power your home instead of buying energy from suppliers.
  • Renewable energy makes use of more permanent resources and helps reduce your Carbon Footprint, therefore helping the environment.

Air Source Heat Pumps

What are they?

Air Source Heat Pumps absorb heat from the air outside, and then use it to heat your home via radiators or underfloor heating and can also be used to heat water.

Whilst they use electricity to run, because they extract the heat from the air, even in temperatures as low as -15°C, the energy they produce is highly renewable. For every unit of energy that they use, they produce three times as much – that’s 300% efficiency!

An additional benefit of the renewable nature of the energy source is that ASHPs can qualify for payments through the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive, meaning you get paid for generating renewable energy.

Solar PV Panels

What are they?

Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are made from a semi-conducting material such as silicone to capture energy from the sun. These cells convert sunlight into energy which can be used to run household appliances and power your home. As this energy is good for both saving you money up to £220* and the environment.

Did you know?

  • Solar panels work to generate energy without direct sunlight and are effective even on cloudy days
  • Save both the environment and your money from a solar panel installation. The green renewable energy generated prevents up to 1.6 tonnes of Carbon and harmful pollutants entering the atmosphere, lowering your Carbon footprint. Not only will you reduce the cost of your electricity bills, but the Government’s Feed-in Tariff is a monetary incentive for those who generate renewable energy. You can even sell energy back to The National Grid if you don’t use it all!

Solar Thermal Systems

Solar thermal panels on your home will allow you to generate hot water all year, using the free energy from the sun. This renewable green energy is beneficial for the environment by reducing the volume of Carbon Dioxide emitted into the atmosphere and will cut your fuel costs, saving you up to £95* per year .

Did you know?

  • Using energy from sunlight, these systems convert the energy to heat water. Warmer Communities accredited installers can assess your property and advise on the most suitable course of action for your Solar Thermal installation, text ‘WARM’ to 60777 to find out more.
  • You can also claim incentive payments from the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Payments are available to customers for generating their own electricity through the Government Feed-in-Tariff. Similarly, payments are also available for those who generate their own heat through the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
