We’re all aware of the recent rises in energy prices and it is normally around this time of year we notice it more than ever.

Energy Efficient Boilers
The key to any central heating system is an efficient boiler that works well; it’s where the main bulk of your energy bill will go, and if it guzzles gas with a poor output then it’s going to cost you a lot of money to keep your home warm. Even if you have an older model that works at maximum efficiency, the Energy Saving trust estimating an annual saving of around £275 for switching to a condensing boiler and upgrading your heating controls.
With such noticeable savings, it’s not long before your bills start to fall and you don’t have to suffer indoors or wrap up to watch the TV. We offer professional installation and replacement services for all gas, oil or LPG boilers and heating systems.
PV Solar Panels
The main draw of highly-efficient modern solar panels is that they significantly reduce or even eliminate your reliance on ‘grid electricity’, and lower your bills as a result. Any electricity you use from the panels is effectively free, and feed-in tariffs pay you for all the electricity you generate.
Should you generate more than you use, then you also get paid for electricity that gets fed back into the main grid. Prices for panels and installation range, at the time of writing, from £6,000 to £10,000 and with the fantastic savings and incentive payments you can generally see a return on your investment in eight to ten years and start earning a tax-free profit on your generated power.
