  • Solar PV Battery TESLA in Aboyne

    A bespoke 10KW Solar PV array with TESLA battery technology

    With a thermally efficient house being built, our self build clients asked us to design the heating, electical and renewables solutions that would help to deliver running costs as close to zero as possible. We designed and installed the following solutions: a NIBE 12KW GSHP, 30 Kingspan evacuated tubes, underfloor heating and all electrical works a...

  • A 16KW ASHP heating the house, the pool and a solar PV array

    A range of technologies in an amazing new build

    This stunning 400m2 new build on the coast in the West of Scotland, has a 16KW Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) which delivers heat and hotwater to the house and a large swimming pool. The electricty costs are kept lower with an integrated roof 4KW PV array which is barely visible from the road. All of these solutions are set up to be managed remotely...

  • solar thermal array on flat roof, scottish borders

    Complimentary technologies in a stunning new build

    This stunning 400m2 new build is close to passive standards and so extremely air tight. However the surfaces of the building are polished concrete and therefore could be cold to the touch. We installed a small 6KW GSHP to enable the floor slab temperature to lifted to allow this to be warm to the touch (and also heated the 300 litre hotwater cyclin...

  • Examples of Unique & Bespoke Solar PV Arrays

    Not every one can, or wants the same solution, here are just a few different solar PV arrays, hand built solutions for unique scenarios ...... Utilising a wall as not to affect the house, panels used as a shade / canopy, inset panels to a new barn, ground mount panels on planters, off grid solar PV, flat roof mounting, ...

  • Froling 38KW biomass bioler in converted manse house

    Examples of Domestic Biomass Solutions

    As one of largest installers of biomass systems, we install in many domestic properties each year. The photos and case studies all look very similar as the majority of the conversation tends to be fuel type (log, pellet or chip), location and space. Our main brand of biomass boilers are ETA and Froling, though if an in-room solution is required we ...

  • Case Study - A bespoke ground mount Solar PV in East Lothian

    As part of an eco build project, we were asked to look at a bespoke solution. We installed 12, 300KW Black LG panels, and with underground armoured cable connecting this array by the house. The mounting kit was bespoke & hand made, with the panels lifted to fit raised planters and therefore less obvious. However there was nothing 'off the shelf' th...

  • Case Study - Ground Source Heat Pumps, Solar PV, Solar Thermal and HRV

    In this new build in Gattonside, Melrose we installed a 12KW, Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) to provide the heat to the underfloor heating and radiators upstairs as well as the hotwater system (which we also fitted) . The Solar PV array provides the electricty to offset the house running costs. As the house if thermally very efficient, during the ...

  • Froling Dual boiler with log store, scotland, scottish borders

    Case Study - Dual Fuel Biomass System, Lauder

    The client already knew he wanted a dual fuel boiler as he had ready access to certified logs. He also knew that he may also want the capability of running this 'hands off' using the automatic pellet feeder, and also have the benefit of auto ignition via the pellets boiler which can then start fire in the combustion chamber to use the logs. The cli...

  • Solar PV & Air Source Heat Pump and older property

    In an old cottage with no heating system (other than a back boiler), we fitted both Solar PV & Air Source Heat Pump, as well as a full wet system (radiators) and new water cyclinder. This solution showed that even in older, and smaller properties, solutions can be found to meet all clients needs and budgets....

  • Examples of renewable technologies for new builds

    With all of our new builds, we offer and range of technologies to match what the client needs and wants. We will explain how to maximise the efficiencies of the houses, use incentives with a view to very low, if not no running costs. The images here should show how renewables can be incorporated into stunning designs, without comprising any of the ...

  • Case Study - Off Grid Solar Yarrow Valley

    This is an example of an off grid Solar PV array, linked to battery storage to provide electrity. This supplemented a small wind turbine and a very small hydo wheel to give year round electrity...

  • Examples of Solar Thermal Solutions

    Here is a small selection of solar thermal solutions we have fitted. Again they tend to all look the same as we tend to only use Kingspan materials. We do offer evacuated tube as well as flat plate collectors, both inset and onset types, A frame designs for flat roofs and side walls....

  • Examples of Traditional 'Onset' Solar PV Arrays

    The most common Solar PV arrays are those you see are those 'on the roof', and we have many years of experience carrying out these installations on domestic , commercial and agricultural properties. These range from 2-10KW for most domestic solutions. For retro fitting, onset (ie placing on the roof) is the most cost effective solution, have a look...

  • inset solar PV system

    Examples of Inset Solar PV Arrays

    As with all PV arrays, indeed all technologies, new products enter the market, and products become more cost efficient over time. This has been true of the mounting kits with inset kits (ie those that sit into the roof, on the sarking or batons) become more price friendly. These tend to be fitted to new builds, or retrofitting roofs or those that a...

  • Heat Recovery & Ventilation

    With heat recovery and ventilation systems, tend tom install these in new build properties or refurbishments. This is simply because they require a significant amount of pipework, with inlets and outlets all to be fitted, and so for retro fitting they tend to be more expensive and do require a fair amount of of upheaval . Every year we will install...

  • ASHP cylinder and controls in North Berwick

    Air Source Heat Pumps

    With most new builds, we tend to install either ground source heat pump or air source heat pumps. We also will fit to older properties but will make sure the clients are aware that radiators may need to be altered to ensure the appropriate surface area is delivered to deliver heat to the property.......

  • Stoves

    As part of a team that install many solutions to new homes, and as we are HETAS qualified, we also supply and install stoves to both old and new properties. We offer a wide range of options and can source nearly all stoves that meet the customers wishes...
