For Homeowners, utility bills are becoming an increasing concern. With annual price increase in excess of 10%, more and more householders are turning to renewable energy as the solution. Attractive Government incentive schemes make this a viable alternative and an attractive investment. Let Cernunnos Homes direct you to the right technology for your home. We dont want you to install any single technology – we want to install the right technology for you.For Homeowners there are two basic energy requirements: Heating and Electricity. When we talk about heating, we mean both Space Heating (increasing the air temperature of a property) and Domestic Hot Water heating (providing hot water in a property). Of course, heating can be supplied by electric boilers, and thus electricity is used to create heat, although the majority of UK households use Gas or Oil for this.
In a similar manner, the renewable energy market differentiates these requirements. There are technologies that supply electricity (Solar PV and Wind turbines) and there are those that supply heat (Solar Thermal, Heat Pumps and Biomass Boilers). This is one of the most common mistakes people make when enquiring about renewable energy systems: Solar PV provides electricity and NOT heat whilst Solar Thermal provides heat and NOT electricity. The two systems are completely different technologies.
That said, it is not all about renewable energy!
Just as important as generating energy, it is equally important to SAVE energy. Making energy efficiency upgrades to your property can save you a lot of money. Cernunnos offers a Whole House approach to houses, where we will help you save energy first and generate renewable energy second. This is made even more possible thanks to the Green Deal.
