Renewable Energy is at the heart of Futurums business and remains our specialist area. We are MCS approved for all Renewables including Solar PV, Solar Thermal, Air and Ground Source Heat Pumps and Biomass Boilers. Biomass is our key skill set, and we have installed many domestic and commercial systems. Biomass Boilers use wood logs, pellets and chips. We have installed systems from rural Dorset to Ghana in Africa.
During the Solar PV (solar panel) boom we installed many domestic and commercial systems.
We pride ourselves on our high quality installations which come complete with 10 year roof warranties. Consideration to roof strengthening is a must and essential for peace of mind. Since the market has changed with the subsidy drop from over 12p a kWh to just over 4p a kWh we now spend a lot of time inspecting and repairing systems where other installers are no longer around. This includes invertor swaps, sometimes under insurance or warranty claims.
We do the same too for Solar Thermal systems which are one of our favourite technologies. Solar Thermal can provide up to 65% of your hot water needs and with regular servicing can last for many years to come.
Air and Ground source Heat Pumps
Air and Ground Source Heat Pumps when installed well and at a properly insulated home, can provide a suitable and energy efficient alternative to those on or off the gas grid. These products are still subsidised under the governments Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive and can be installed as a bivalent or hybrid system working with a gas boiler.
At Futurum, we also look to new technolgies which now includes Thermal Dynamics (TD). TD works like a heat pump or your fridge in reverse, and provides you with your domestic hot water needs 24/7. TD pulls heat from the air and via a compressor and heat-exchanger feeds this into your hot water tank. No wonder it is called ‘The Magic Box’!
If you are looking to self generate your energy at home using these technologies, you want it done well with good quality products and first class service, please get in touch.
