Insulation

Approximately 30% of produced heat escapes through the roof, floor, walls, windows and doors of buildings.  Fabric heat loss can be slowed down by insulating the building - potentially reducing the amount of fuel burned to keep the property warm.

 

Building fabric insulation improves the efficiency of the building and in addition to short payback periods it also expands the lifetime of your boiler.

 

Cavity wall insulation- improving the buildings energy rating with insulation is considered one of the most effective energy efficient measures. In addition to save money on your energy bills, it also reduces carbon dioxide emission too. There is also moisture in the air. When moist air hits a colder surface, beads of condensation are formed, which can cause serious damp problems.   After insulation, the interior wall is warmer than the un-insulated cavity walls, therefore it helps to reduce condensation.

 

Solid wall insulation- solid walls let through twice as much warm air as cavity walls. Good news is, these walls can be insulated too- either internally or externally.

 

Loft insulation- heat rises and a vast amount of energy is lost through the roof. Insulating this area is a simple and effective way to reduce heating bills. Loft insulation materials can prevent the movement of heated air through the material.

Boiler Room Assessment

Through the assessment we identify which measures could be put in place to reduce fuel costs and increase system efficiency. Designed with older boiler rooms or those which are likely to have an upgrade in the near future in mind, we’ll provide a full report of recommendations to meet your specific requirements, and the appropriate options to fulfil them.

 

We assess aspects such as the boiler’s performance, current controls and the typical properties within the building and boiler room, to provide an initial survey. Thanks to our industry expertise, we provide a review of options that help to both improve system efficiency and reduce fuel wastage.

  • Full project management of the installation

  • Ideal for older boiler rooms

 

LED Lighting

You can help reduce the carbon footprint of your building by installing LED lighting in place of existing light fittings. LED Lights have an immediate light output (unlike some other energy saving bulbs) and are dimmable too with no flicker. They operate silently, are recyclable, and by replacing any existing fittings they will dramatically improve the energy efficiency of your business.

 

There are various ways in which your building can benefit from new lighting technology. A complete overhaul to a new lighting system is regarded as the most effective way to save energy. This includes re-wiring the old lighting structure and replacing the fittings with low energy fixtures. However, if this solution doesn’t fit your requirements, there are other ways in which LED technology can be implemented.

Bulb replacement- an LED bulb replacement can decrease your energy bills. LEDs use up to 90% less energy than incandescent or halogen bulbs.

 

PIR sensors- it detects the infrared heat that emitted naturally by humans. Installing these sensors alongside with LED fittings are the most efficient way of improving the lighting system. The sensors can be tailored and optimised to suit your building and operation processes to achieve maximum energy saving potential.

Solar PV

By generating its own electricity rather than being supplied from the grid, Solar panel electricity systems offer a significant long-term benefit to buildings.

 

The Panels work when sunlight shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers. The power of a cell is measured in kilowatt peak (kWp).

A 4kWp system can generate around 3,800 kilowatt hours of electricity a year – roughly equivalent to a typical household's electricity needs. 

Solar PV is eligible for Feed-in Tariffs and you will earn a tariff for each kWh of electricity generated by your system and for each kWh of electricity you export back to the grid.

 

  • Significant long-term benefits

  • Sell electricity back to the grid

  • Low maintenance needed

 

Metering

Installing meters in your building provides extremely valuable and accurate information about how/where your energy is consumed . By measuring the way your building currently uses energy, it allows us to identify how key areas could be improved to reduce energy consumption. Once energy efficient measures are implemented you can then see the reduction in energy consumption through the display on the meter, which also aids user awareness of energy use.

 

Meters and Sub-meters can be installed to monitor individual aspects of your building, or to give an overall analysis.  For example, you can analyse overall energy use from gas, electricity or water, or look at key areas of your building such at Kitchen, Restaurant, Swimming Pool etc. 

Not only does metering allow you to monitor your energy consumption for your own purposes, but can be used in commercial opportunities with Billing and Recharging for Tenant Billing, Sub-let Billing and facilities management. Metering and Reviewing the data, and measuring the energy and water consumption in your building gives you a better understand of which key measures could be implemented  therefore motivating operational improvements and allowing technical insights.

 

Using Metering can also improve and benefit industry who have to comply with government legislation like Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) and Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS). It will help with tracking performance, make it easier for reporting and allow benchmarking.

HVAC

Heating

 

Replacing your inefficient boilers are one of the most resourceful option, although it is vital to be cognisant that the latest Building regulations set minimum efficiency standards for new and replacement boiler installations. We recommend to select higher efficiency boilers in order to gain better savings from a more energy efficient heating system.

If boiler replacement seems too costly, or you do not have budget yet for this upgrading, turning down to a lowering set point can potentially reduce your heating bill. Turning down the temperature on your thermostat to the minimum comfortable level can save up to 8% on your fuel consumption.

 

 

Ventilation

 

Ensure that your ventilation is in a decent condition is vital- it supplies fresh air and helps to protect a building against damp and condensation. Ventilation accounts for approximately 30% of heat loss in most commercial buildings. You can prevent wasting energy on unnecessary ventilation with:

  • High efficiency motors

  • Variable speed fans

  • Optimising time settings

Air Conditioning

 

Despite of air condition systems can use vast amount of energy most of the organisations choose to use it. The reason being that lots of extra heat generated by the increased use of IT equipment.

Fortunately, we have some simple and low cost ways supporting you towards a sustainable environment.

 

Temperature control- make sure that your air condition does not operate below 23 °C. Also ensure that heating and cooling systems don’t operate at the same time. Open doors and windows also reduce the efficiency of the system, therefore wasting your money.

 

Variable speed drives- these highly efficient systems ensure you don’t produce more cooling that you need. The drives can vary the output of you air con to meet your needs throughout the day.
