Bristan Kitchen Taps

Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs)

ASHPs capture heat from the air using the refrigeration cycle. They then provide heat to properties through radiators, underfloor heating and hot water via suitably sized cylinders.

Bristan Kitchen Sinks

Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPs)

GSHPs are similar to ASHPs but use underground pipe arrays or boreholes to capture heat from the ground, before transferring it to the same elements of a property that ASHPs do.

Boiling Water Taps

Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating can be particularly effective when combined with ASHP and GSHP systems. It can be used to replace radiators and is more environmentally friendly and cost-effective to run than traditional heating systems.

Bristan Kitchen Taps

Biomass Boilers

Biomass systems burn wood pellets, wood chips and logs to provide warmth for heating systems and domestic hot water production. Biomass systems can also be used effectively in commercial buildings.

Bristan Kitchen Sinks

Solar Thermal

Solar thermal systems use solar panels/collectors fitted to the roof. These collect heat from the sun and use it to heat up water which is stored in a hot water cylinder

Boiling Water Taps

Solar PV & Battery Storage

Solar PV systems are similar to solar thermal in that they use solar panels fitted to the roof, however, PV converts solar radiation into electricity that can be stored in a battery storage unit

Green Homes Grant

The Green Homes Grant scheme, in which the government will pay up to two thirds of energy efficiency home improvements up to the value of £10,000, has now launched. Homeowners and landlords in England will be granted vouchers for home improvements measures, such as the installation of insulation and heat pumps.

Legislation

Zero Carbon Homes

The Zero Carbon Homes policy requires all domestic new builds from 2016 onwards to mitigate all the carbon emissions products on-site, including the energy used to provide heating and cooling, hot water and lighting.

Future Homes Standard

The Future Homes Standard will require new build homes to be future-proofed with low carbon heating and world-leading levels of energy efficiency.

SAP

SAP stands for ‘Standard Assessment Procedure’ and is the government’s method for calculating the energy performance of dwellings. These calculations are only necessary for residential properties
