Decisions on how to heat and ventilate a building need to take into account how the property is used as well as the orientation as the effects from the sun can have an impact on the way the property heats and colls.
Using a heat recovery system in a building gives controllable ventilation to the living areas and can create a greater sense of wellbeing giving lower fuel bills. It will also help reduce damage to the building from mould as it takes away the moist air from the bathroom/kitchen/utility areas. Buildings can lose up to 25% of heat due to uncontrolled ventilation and air leakage. With a Heat Recovery Unit more than 90% of this heat can be recovered.
Wood and Pellet burning Stoves are a low carbon option to be considered.
Biomass Boilers using pellets sourced from secondary wood are a very efficient option to consider.
Water based underfloor heating systems are a good option when linked with low temperature water heated products like ground source heat pumps or Solar thermal panels.
