If your gas boiler is making banging noises, you’ve got a problem called “kettling”.

The banging or popping noises you can here are usually caused by either lime scale or corrosion and debris becoming baked on the inside of the heat exchanger inside your boiler. This will make the boiler have hot-spots where the boiler isn’t using heating evenly.

This  can be a very common problem with low-water content wall-mounted boilers over about 10 years old.

Beat the Feed-in Tariff drop, install Solar Panels before January 2016

The UK Government have announced that they are slashing the Solar Feed-in Tariff by 87% on January 1st 2016. If you install solar panels before that date you’ll receive the current Feed-in Tariff of 12.47p per kWh, after that date the price is proposed to be 1.63p per kWh!

There really is no better time to have solar panels installed on your home. The Government are consulting on the tariff drop at the moment, but with budgets being squeezed it looks pretty certain that this will become a reality come January 1st.

How could the Solar Feed-in Tariff drop effect you?

Here are the sums
Typical payment each year if you install before January 1st 2016 – £635 per year*
Typical payment each year if you install after January 1st 2016 – £255 per year*

*This includes your energy saving.

Just discovered Google Story. What an amazing idea! Captured our entire weekend away in Wales. If everyone knew Google+ could do this they'd flock away from Facebook and it's static stories.

The best part of my job is going to see customers and finding out how we've helped to lower their fuel bills.
 
Installing Biomass boilers when there's little or no room in a house

There’s a myth that biomass boilers will only fit into large homes which have dedicated boiler rooms, or need specially constructed eco-sheds. In fact biomass boilers can happily be installed outside if space is at a premium.

That’s exactly what we did for the Gaskill family who live just North of Blackburn in the village of Whalley. They live in a beautiful property with stunning views of the hills. One of the drawbacks of living in such a remote area is that it has no mains gas supply so heating the house has traditionally been done using oil.

The Gaskill’s initial heating was supplied by an oil combi boiler, but because the house had low water pressure, due to the whole row of homes being fed by one water main, the boiler couldn’t cope with the demands of family life.

Read the whole case study to find out how we helped the Gaskill family lower their heating bills.

Biomass boilers are perfect for smaller homes too. You don't need a huge home to make having a biomass boiler worthwhile.

Oil might seem cheap at the moment, but it's on the rise. With Solar, Biomass and other renewable energy technology getting cheaper all the time, now is a good time to switch.

Deflation in the UK has been partly fueled by cheap oil prices. But don't be fooled by thinking cheap oil prices will last, switch to renewable energy now.

If you're interested in renewable energy and sustainable construction in Scotland. You should be at this event. Tickets are free.
 
On Friday October 23rd, we’re hosting Sustainable Energy and Construction in Scotland at the offices in Fife.

This is a great opportunity to meet and talk to industry experts in Scotland about all aspects of renewable energy, improve your knowledge and understanding and make some great contacts in the area.

Our partners in Scotland Calum Waker Energy Source will also have representatives on the day, so there will be a vast array of expertise available for you to interrogate about renewable energy.

Tickets are free and available now via our website.

If you're coming to the Perth Agricultural Show this weekend, ask us about Scottish Interest Free Loans for Renewable Energy.
 
If you live in Scotland you can apply for an interest free loan from the Scottish Government via their Home Energy Scotland Renewables Loan Scheme. You can use this loan to pay off the full cost of your renewable energy system or you can use it as part payment.

Our Scottish renewables team based in Fife, have lots of experience helping our customers apply for these interest free renewable energy loans, and will be more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

#Scotland   #renewableenergy  
The Scottish renewables loan scheme offers interest free loans to help you switch to renewable energy and increase the savings you'll make.

Something has to change in the UK Energy Market.
 
Here are two really scary statements about the state of the UK energy market.

Gas and electricity prices in the UK have risen by 125% and 75% respectively in the past 10 years.

Between 2009 and 2013, British Gas, E-On, Npower, EDF Energy, Scottish Power and SSE collectively charged households £1.2bn a year more than they would have in a competitive market.

It doesn't have to be like that. With a small investment in Energy Saving Technology or a larger one in Solar or Biomass, you can free yourself from rising fuel costs.
