RETROFIT DESIGN

THE RETROFITTING OF AN EXISTING SYSTEM WITH RENEWABLE TECHNOLOGIES CAN BE COMPLETED WITH GREAT SUCCESS.

HOWEVER TO ENSURE A BENEFICIAL RESULT THERE ARE A NUMBER OF FACTORS WHICH MUST UNDERSTOOD AND ADDRESSED.

some of these factors include;

  • design principles

  • heat load

  • delivery systems

  • heat emitters (underfloor radiators etc)

  • control

  • desired result

  • effectiveness

with our retrofit program we address a retrofit project in 3 phases

  1. hot water

  2. standalone heating system

  3. supplementary heating system

hot water

hot water is a 365 day a year requirement for every home.

as a result it can be a major portion of a homes energy usage and so is possibly the best starting points for the retrofitting of an existing system.

cthere are a number of renewable energies available on the market for hot water production.

 

however these solutions come with a number of limiting factors.

  • weather reliant

  • use of immersions

  • require back up

a true solution

the hemera is possibly the best solution for a renewable hot water system.

 

The hemera does not rely on the weather, immersions or back up and delivers 100% OF A HOMES HOT WATER REQUIREMENTS.

 

WITH THE HEMERA SYSTEM HOT WATER IS AVAILABLE 24/7 365 IRREGARDLESS OF TIME OF DAY AT A FRACTION OF THE COST OF CONVENTIONAL MEANS.

 

THE SYSTEM IS QUICK AND EASY TO INSTALL AND IS USUALLY COMPLETED WITHIN A SINGLE DAY with hot water being available the same evening.

standalone heating

to retrofit an existing system with a standalone efficient heating system is an extremely complicated project.

 

This is especially true when the use of back up electric immersions are not an option.

at es we have a certain set of criteria which must be met before we offer a standalone solution.

the purpose of these criteria is to ensure a satisfactory result for our customers.

standalone criteria

if underfloor heating exists within a dwelling then the fitting of heat pump technology is the ideal solution.

while standard radiators can be used with heat pump technology, we always advise the installation of aluminium radiators due to their efficiency with a renewable system.

other criteria such as insulation, window type and so on will determine a homes suitability for a standalone system.

supplementary heat.

a supplementary system can offer a balance between efficiency, comfort and investment.

this type of system simply means the installation of a heat pump in conjunction with the existing boiler system.

THE HEAT PUMP ACTS AS THE PRIMARY SOURCE FOR HEATING. WHEN REQUIRED DUE TO EXCESS DEMAND AND / OR COLDER EXTERNAL WEATHER CONDITIONS THE BOILER CAN BE CALLED UPON TO BOOST FOR A SET PERIOD OF TIME.

tHE USE OF THE BOILER IN THIS WAY IS FAR MORE EFFICIENT THAN UTILISING AN ELECTRIC HEATER WHICH IS OFTEN INCORPORATED INTO MANY HEAT PUMPS.

BENEFITS 

THE BENEFITS OF A SUPPLEMENTARY SYSTEM ARE NUMEROUS.

  • REDUCED INVESTMENT

  • QUICK AND EASY TO INSTALL

  • CAN BE INSTALLED INTO ANY SYSTEM TYPE

  • INCREASED COMFORT

  • REDUCED FUEL BILLS

  • NO REQUIREMENT FOR INCREASED INSULATIONS, WINDOW REPLACEMENT ETC.
