Radiator Upgrade

This is a typical issue with old central heating systems, badly fitted connection under floor gradually leaking for many years.  This leads to air in the system and to early boiler and radiator failure.

Paul connecting the hydronic supply to a new radiator at Millvues St Martins, Guernsey. We have just insulated loft and eaves spaces to increase comfort and efficiency now adding higher output and larger rads to increase comfort further. In turn this will make the condensing boiler we fitted 5 years ago work more efficiently.

Upgrading the oil condensing boiler connections to enable easy annual flushing and E-Si's bespoke easy fill, drain and air eradication system

Finished result

The new rad goes on

Heating and efficiency upgrade solution par excellence!

Pauls Blog - Les Hubits Farm Survey

Paul Fletcher visited Les Hubits Farm today and studied the energy and farming cycles of the farm with a view to implementing a renewable energy strategy. The first concept ideas are to cool the milk and heat the hot water required for the parlour cleaning process. Any further heat generated from a Water Source Heat Pump by incoming water from borehole would be diverted to heat the home’s hot water on 24hr standby.

On examination of the slurry pit it was thought we could use the slurry pit to obtain heat for the water source heat pump. We would divert between the borehole and the slurry pit depending upon heat source available and channel the slurry heat into the nearby home.

What you think the Payback is........

Following our distribution of our What's the payback? postcards.  We have received some more interesting answers to the question.  Here are some more answers we have received..........

The recipient needs to fill in the three answers and send it back FREEPOST to the address pre-printed on the postcard. We will compile and scan every entry card and post it on the “What’s the Payback?” Facebook page.  A collective world vision is required to take human society beyond its present situation. In one sense we’ve never had it better! However we could quickly go the route of other failed societies in the past.

The campaign will culminate in an evening seminar’s at the OGH, Guernsey with key note speaker Andrew Hillier, CEO of Ice Energy, the largest distributor of heat pumps in the UK. Doors will open at 4pm to the public where there will be an opportunity to view the latest renewable energy equipments from ground source heat pumps to solar photovoltaics and talk directly to UK technical staff as well as our Renewable Energy Engineers. Each speaker will be putting their personal spin on what they think the ‘payback’ for Renewables is. We will be filming the event and uploading the resultant informative film to You Tube.

Please turn up from 4pm onwards for the Exhibition and if you would like to book a place on the seminar please either email: payback@e-si.com or phone E-Si offices on 01481 200388.
