Generating your own energy can be good for the environment and good for your pocket too. Low-carbon technologies such as wind turbines, solar panels and wood fuel boilers use renewable sources of energy, so you use less fossil fuel, which reduces your carbon footprint as well as your fuel bills. What’s more, with government financial incentives available, it’s never been a better time to install. McCrorys Plumbing & Heating can offer you advice and a full installation service along with future regular servicing.

Unlike gas and oil boilers, heat pumps deliver heat at lower temperatures over much longer periods. During the winter they may need to be on constantly to heat your home efficiently. You will also notice that radiators won't feel as hot to the touch as they might do when you are using a gas or oil boiler.

Ground Source Heat PumpsGround Source Heat Pumps.

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.

The most popular form of renewable energy

One of the most popular forms of renewable energy, solar panels offer tangible benefits for the homeowner and the environment.
For the homeowner, solar panels deliver a significant reduction in heat or electricity bills. There's also the opportunity to earn money from the UK Government's solar incentive schemes. For the environment, solar energy represents a cleaner, greener alternative to fossil fuels. Solar panels emit no carbon dioxide as they operate, helping the planet to minimise its carbon footprint.

Solar Water HeatingSolar Water Heating panel.

solar water heating can provide up to 60%* of your annual hot water requirements.

Solar hot water heaters can reduce the cost of your heating bills. The cost savings depends on many factors including the amount of sunlight in your area, size of your storage tank and the amount of water you typically use. However, most individuals who install a solar hot water system in their home can enjoy a reduction in annual water heating energy costs of approx 60%*. Another important advantage of solar water heating is the fact that solar water heating produces no harmful greenhouse gas emissions. No carbon dioxide is ever released into the atmosphere from a zero-carbon solar water heating system which makes it one of the cleanest energy sources available. Installing a solar water heater can reduce harmful carbon dioxide emissions by 250 kg or even more, every year. Solar water heating allows you to contribute to a much safer and healthier environment.
