Heat Pumps, PV's and HeatKubes!

We are having our busiest August ever, with two 8.5kW solar photovoltaic installs going on at same time (17kW Total)(that used to be 1kW a year!). 

 We are building 2 x HeatKubes in our workshop for immediate install, we have a further 12 more HeatKubes to build and install next few months.

We have almost completed our first Loxone home automation system, controlling a bespoke design of dehum and pool heating in Fort George. This latter install is unique in the world, being the most efficient way of heating and controlling moisture ever.

Its not been easy, on all fronts we have been innovating hard with steep learning curves. Just sourcing the right kind of sensors has been fun, pulling in from the US and France as few UK distributors have the right products. 

In the photos below you can see a massive 2 x 14kW of Mitsubishi Air Source Heat Pumps connecting in through our bespoke design buffer system allowing the legacy radiator system to not interfere with the modern electronic heat pump controls. In Total we have a high performance 28kW of heat pumps to heat hot water, radiators and a small UFH circuit. 

The photos of the roof below show the stainless steel slate hooks with 'Hall Clip' solar flashing to which overall across two roofs, 8.8kW of a new type of modulating solar PV will be installed. This comes with default internet connection so power output can be viewed from anywhere in the world.


  1. Since i am new to this industry, i have learnt a lot about solar systems and its effectiveness - heating yorktown

  3. This industry is taking the country by storm! Solar panel systems are a great way to power pumps used for heating, electricity, and air-conditioning in a more sustainable manner. I bet that most of the US has these on top of their roofs within the next two decades. Energy prices are only going to continue to rise.

  4. Hi I even have browse your post and that i suppose it's usefull.Thanks for the sharing this web site. it's terribly helpful skilled data.

  5. Heat pump  as cooling simply means turning the heat cycle upside down. We take a closer look at this process. When a heat pump cools a room, it extracts heat from this room. If you switch the heat pump to the heating position, it will extract heat from the outside air. This free heat is then converted in the outdoor part of the heat pump to a usable level for heating. That heat is finally blown into the desired space.
