Every day we hear about the ever increasing cost of energy. Everybody is having to come to terms with the fact that energy costs will never fall to where they used to be.
At All Seasons Solutions LTD we recognise this and have carried out extensive research in to new ways of heating your home – new ways that both save you money and are kinder to the world we live in.
Simply put, solar heating uses the free energy from the sun to heat water for your water tank. We install the Glowworm flat plate solar collectors on the side of your roof that gets the most sun and install a dedicated solar collection tank. This tank acts as a heat exchanger and transfers the solar energy to your heating system. We recommend the Glowworm tanks because these have a second heat exchanger that enables the system to connect to an existing central heating boiler that acts as a back-up heating source for longer periods of low solar energy days.
Even on cloudy days, the earth is bathed in heat radiation from the sun and this energy is free to all. Solar heating systems take this free energy and use it to heat the water in your heating systems. Once installed, the systems are virtually free to run – a small amount of electricity is used by the pump that pumps that transfer the heat from the roof mounted panels to the solar energy storage tank.
Solar heating can not only save you money but will also reduce your carbon footprint. In the UK, the Energy Saving Trust have found that solar heating can provide you with around 1/3rd of your hot water and will also reduce your CO2 emissions considerably. For example, if your existing heating is by solid fuel or electricity, you’ll be saving around 640kg for CO2 annually whilst gas and oil installations will save around 325kg
Imagine a way of heating your home that evenly heats your house in the way you want, eliminates cold spots, lets you have total freedom over furniture placement and saves space because radiators are no longer required and reduces the circulation of dust.
Modern underfloor heating systems use a fluid to carry the warmth from your boiler to the rooms to be heated. The boiler can either be traditionally fuelled by gas or oil or one of the more environmentally friendly solutions, using solar energy or a heat pump
