You could receive funding for the installation through the Green homes Scheme (Option to click on Green Home Grant Scheme and it take you to the Green Homes page)which we hold all the accreditations for. Everyone is entitled to 2/3 of the upfront cost up to a maximum on £5,000 and if you or anybody in the property is in receipt of benefits you can get top £10,000.
Reduced energy bills because when it’s cold outside the combination boiler will work so the air source does not have to work as hard and when its warmer outside the air source heat pump will work.
The high-grade heat produced can easily be integrated to work in tandem with heating systems such as radiators. This helps minimise initial costs as the heating distribution system does not typically have to be upgraded.
There is an average rolling heat temperature maintained in the property meaning increased efficiency, on the whole Air source is around 60% more efficient than oil and 40% more efficient than gas.
You have a dedicated team with 15 years’ experience to guide you through the process holding all the highest accreditation such as MCS and have access to multiple different funding streams giving you the best deal.
Don’t be bullied by the big energy companies be in Control of your own bills and rates.
Do your bit by reducing your carbon footprint and save the planet.

Choosing the Right Solar Thermal Collector for your property
There are two types of thermal collectors used for solar water heating systems. These are: Evacuated Tube Collectors and Flat Plate Collectors
Evacuated Tube Collectors combine individual tubes set inside panels, with heat-absorbing antifreeze solution circulating through them.
Flat Plate Collectors are most easily described as plates of heat-absorbent material that are mounted in any location that gets a lot of sun. The flat plate collector absorbs the sun’s heat then transfers it to fluid flowing through the system.
For extra efficiency, Evacuated Tube Collectors usually have highly reflective, weather-proof CPC (Compound Parabolic Concentrator) reflectors on each tube. The clever design of the reflector means that both direct and diffused sunlight falls onto the absorber. This considerably improves the energy yield markedly.
Is Solar Thermal Right for My Home?
There are one or two myths concerning solar energy that we often redress at Broad Oak, such as the belief that solar panels and solar thermal systems only work during the summer, yet, this fantastic, free energy is available all year round. The other fallacy is that these systems can work only in when there is bright sunshine and thus solar thermal energy technology is not really unsuited suitable to our climate here in the UK. However, the solar thermal systems that we recommend at Broad Oak are highly-functional in any kind of light conditions (otherwise we would not recommend them). It stands to reason that they will achieve the best results on bright, cloudless and sunny days, but we can assure you that they will also perform almost as well in overcast or diffuse conditions.
Every solar thermal system we install uses one of the aforementioned heat collectors mounted on the in a south-facing direction to allow optimal levels of heat-transfer. During the summer months, the technology has the capability to heat the water to boiling point and so temperature-limiting safety features are incorporated to stop this. The system naturally heats to a lesser degree during winter, but the output from solar thermal systems can still be considerable, meaning significant, year-round savings, not just with your summer bills. A good way to look at it is that it takes the same amount of energy to raise water temperature from 1ºC to 2 ºC as from 99 ºC to 100 ºC. 1º is 1º, after all!
