A greener and cheaper way to stay warm.
British homeowners devote a tremendous amount of their energy spending to heating. This is especially true when they rely on older boilers and water heaters that don’t use energy efficiently.
But, it doesn’t have to be this way. There exist a wide range of green heating options that deliver the comfort you crave, without wasting energy or your hard-earned money.
Some of our favourite energy-efficient solutions come from Icon – a company that specialises in sustainable heating technology.
Below are some of the solutions we recommend most.
Unvented hot water cylinders
With 25-years of warranty protection, these hot water cylinders are some of the most durable on the market and have incredibly low heat loss features.
Air source heat pumps
Rather than use fossil fuel combustion to heat your home, these pumps extract thermal energy directly from the air. In fact, they can continue providing indoor warmth even when it’s -25°C outside.
Base cube gas condensing boiler
With efficiency rates exceeding 96%, this boiler is able to heat 16 litres of water to 60°C every 60 seconds. At that pace, it’s possible to fill up your bathtub in only a few minutes.
These attachments may look simple, but there’s a lot of power under the hood. After installing them throughout your home, you’ll be able to control all your heating and cooling systems directly from a PC, tablet, or smartphone. The attachments even provide modular control, allowing you to set weekly profiles for individual zones. They also come with the ability to detect when rooms are empty and when windows are open.
Swimming pool heat pumps
Using similar air extraction technology, these pumps are ideal for heating and cooling pools, hot tubs, Jacuzzis, and ponds. And they are incredibly efficient, capable of producing 5.2 kW of energy for every 1 kW of electricity consumed.
Additional benefits of the Icon product line
Most of the above solutions are RHI-compliant, meaning it’s possible to generate income after replacing older heating systems with these more energy-efficient alternatives. But even without this government incentive, Icon’s heating solutions deliver substantial savings, making it easy to break even within a relatively short amount of time.
Also, most of the above solutions run on electricity, making them ideally suited for solar. By installing photovoltaic (PV) panels, it’s possible to completely eliminate the environmental impact of your home’s heating and cooling.
