Solar water heating systems use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. A conventional boiler or immersion heater can be used to make the water hotter, or to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable.
Hot water throughout the year: the system works all year round, though you'll need to heat the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months.
Cut your bills: sunlight is free!

Whatever the flooring, GMD Plumbing Heating Services Ltd is able to cater for a variety of underfloor heating methods.
Our Engineers provide scaled drawings to quantify the reason for the design and installation method, to ensure accurate heating output meets the requirements of each and every room.
Because the heat emitted from an underfloor system is more evenly distributed than a single radiator, the system can use water at a lower temperature, making it a more efficient way of heating your home.
Underfloor heating is generally associated with stone or tiled floors, but you can fit it in a carpeted room.
GSHP's draw heat from the ground via a network of water pipes buried underground, usually in your garden. A ground source heat pump system harnesses heat from underground by pumping water through it. The heat pump then increases the temperature and the heat is used to provide home heating or hot water.
Our pictures to the right detail one option of extracting heat from the ground. (Ground loops or `slinkies' ). Other options include bore holes or panels buried in the ground).
Air source heat pumps can be installed in most properties of varying sizes offering reduced energy bills.
An air source heat pump is usually placed outside at the side or back of a property and takes heat from the air and boosts it to a higher temperature using a heat pump. This heat is then used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems or even warm air convectors and hot water in your home.
The pump needs electricity to run, but the idea is that it uses less electrical energy than the heat it produces.
