Solar Photovoltaic Systems are one of the many technologies we install and we are a fully qualified electrical services contractor; go to Safelec Services for more information.


ECO Heating

If you have oil or LPG heating you should seriously consider replacing your boiler with an electrically powered heat pump as you can save between 30% and 40% on your annual fuel bill and domestic systems now qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) that could generate payments of £700 - £1000 per year for 7 years, to help towards the cost of installing the system.

 

 

You may think electric heating is not very efficient; however the latest heat pump designs are very efficient; they take heat from the air or ground, depending on the model, and use this energy to heat the fluid that runs through your radiators or underfloor heating. For every kWh of electricity used, these systems output around 3kWh of heat energy, the rest of the energy comes from the air or ground. It may sound like 'magic' but these systems have been in use for years in many countries, such as Norway and New Zealand. You already have at least one heat pump in your house - your fridge/fridge-freezer; imagine putting the fridge where your back door is, open the fridge door to the outside and feel the heat from the grill on the back of the fridge - that's basically it! Heat pumps have a fan to move the cold air away and connectors so it can be joined onto your exisitng heating system.


Heat Your Water With Your Excess Generation

Controllers are available that divert your excess generated electricity to your immersion heater, so rather than exporting it, the power heats up your water.  This means your boiler has less work to do and in the summer it could mean you heat your hot water for free!  The systems can be fitted to standard emmersion heaters, no plumbing work is required.

Voltage Optimisation

Many of our electrical devices are designed to run at the European standard of 220V; our UK electricity supply is generally around 240V.  This means the devices aren't running as efficiently as they could and as a result they waste energy.  A voltage optimiser regulates the supply within your home to 220V; independent tests have shown annual savings of about 10%.  The impact varies by appliance; fridges and freezers improve by around 17%, 15% on normal light bulbs and 10% on energy saving light bulbs.


Power Storage

You can store your generated electricity for later use - some storage units can be retrospectively added to an existing PV system or included as part of a new installation. There are two main configurations for these systems:

  • Self-consumption; with this approach, the power stored in the batteries is used to 'top-up' what the PV system produces, so if it goes dull, power is taken from the batteries first, rather than drawing it from the grid. This mode of operation can help to significantly further reduce your electricity bills.
  • Off-grid; this configuration is more complex to install but allows the property to retain an electrical supply when there is a loss of mains power in addition to what a self-consumption system provides.

The latest lithium iron phosphate technology (LiFePO4) has key advantages over other technologies:

  • No memory effect
  • Highly efficient (above 92%)
  • No risk of fire or explosion
  • No hazardous material
  • Very long life of up to 20 years
