Carbon dioxide (CO2) contributes around 60% of the potential global warming effect of human-made emissions of greenhouse gases worldwide. The burning of fossil fuels – oil, gas coal etc. – releases CO2 and increases its concentration in the atmosphere.
With natural fossil fuels becoming increasingly scarce, Piper Heating are committed to working with new technologies and alternative renewable energies – energy flows which occur naturally and repeatedly in the environment – to help to reduce our carbon foot print, reduce emissions and lower fuel bills by utilising the exciting range of green heating solutions becoming available.
We are able to offer a full design and installation package to meet individual central heating and hot water requirements and we are accredited installers under the MCS Microgeneration Certification Scheme.
Solar Hot Water
Solar water heating can provide up to 60% of your annual hot water requirements by using the power in sunlight to produce hot water for the home.
Combined Heat and Power (CHP)
A system which involves heating your home and generating electricity at the same time. This technology generates heat and electricity simultaneously, from the same energy source, in individual homes or buildings. The main output of a CHP system is heat, with some electricity generation. Any electricity you generate and don’t use can be sold back to the grid.
Ground Source Heat Pumps
Extract heat from the ground by circulating water or another fluid through pipes buried in the ground in trenches or in vertical boreholes. The pipes extract heat from the ground and a heat exchanger within the pump, extracts the heat from this fluid. The temperature of the fluid is then raised to supply heat and hot water to the building.
Air to Water Heat Pumps
An external fan draws air from outside the building into the unit before converting the heat within the air into water, a usable heat for the home. Perfect for use with underfloor heating and radiators.
Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR)
A continuous ventilation system that removes moist and stale air from a property and replaces it with fresh filtered air ensuring a cosy and cosy and condensation free environment all year round.
