Blue Sky Building Solutions: for people who want a more energy efficient property but don’t know where to start
The Problem With Gas. The water and central heating in most properties in the UK are heated by boilers fired by natural gas.
Britain has been gas rich as a result of sitting on the North Sea fields. However, like all fossil fuels, these supplies are running very low and will be completely depleted within the next decade.
To counter this the UK is drawing on gas piped across Europe from Russia and even on frozen gas shipped to terminals in South Wales. Over the next few years Britain will have to adjust its consumption of natural gas enormously, to reduce its dependence on these foreign sources.
If you are looking to change your existing system for new it is essential that you select engineers with experience and the knowledge and understanding of property’s heat requirements. This will ensure that you get the best system, the right size for your property.
Modern boilers should be A rated, and high efficiency condensing models. If you are replacing some older models, you can make up to 30% efficiency savings on your gas bills.
Also, it is possible to couple conventional, modern gas boilers with systems that can future proof your property, making them compatible with Solar Hot Water or Heat pump technology.
If you are going to spend a few thousand on a new boiler why not consider future proofing your home by installing a solar/ heat pump ready system? Ask our engineers for more details.
Blue Sky Building Solutions provide expert surveys for individual systems or whole buildings to ensure that any system is appropriate for a property and, if so, correctly specified and sited.
If required, as qualified installers, Blue Sky Building Solutions will see any project through from the initial enquiry, survey, design and installation to commissioning.
