Renewable Heating System Demand Outstrips Supply

2021 will see a further huge growth in the take-up of Renewable ‘Green’ Heating

Unprecedented demand means you may well have to wait for your work to commence, delaying both new-build and renovation / conversion projects

This warning comes as demand for new systems driven by the Governments ‘Green Deal’ has taken the industry by storm at a time when Covid 19  restrictions have inevitably slowed the pace at which companies can operate.

Ashburn Stoves & Heating is a company that switched to fitting renewables at an early stage, benefitting now from considerable experience and expertise, their services are in high demand.

Bruce Mills Ashburn’s technical manager quoted their orderbook as ‘excessive’ through this winter and spring. ‘the lead time to find and develop new engineers is longer for us than traditional Gas based engineers. Renewables are a whole new technology that require a whole new set of skills. Our expectation of our engineers is very high.
We strongly advise anyone considering a project which includes Renewable Heating to contact us as early as possible. We can make sure your project is in the diary and we can secure the necessary parts and components before the inevitable price rises this winter.

Working from home – the future

specialist heating installersWhat are the renewable energy challenges when working from home

Some thoughts from Ashburn’s Renewable Heating team

For many people working from home will be the future ‘normal’ …….. but there are implications which need to be factored in:

  • Where and when your home is heated may change the costs calculations for type of heating system you use
  • Less travel to and from work may reduce some peoples costs, or the expenses costs to their employer
  • More time working from home during the winter months will mean higher energy bills
  • The type of vehicle you run and the type of energy it uses may change
  • Energy companies may change the way they charge for energy at different times of the day

Our new ‘Renewable Energy Centre’ will help answer these and other questions you may have about your home or business heating options.

We are currently in the middle of moving the whole business into it’s new home so making an appointment to see us would be wise at the moment, but we can make you comfortable in Hamish’s Cafe next door and talk you through the Renewable Energy options

Government continues to support Renewable Heating systems

If you are considering a Heat Pump to heat your home or business – there is still time to benefit from a Government grant through the RHI scheme

Renewable Heating Incentive

In the March 2020 budget, the government announced:

an extension to the domestic RHI for a further year to 31 March 2022
the introduction of a flexible, third allocation of tariff guarantees on the non-domestic RHI. The non-domestic RHI will close to new applications on 31 March 2021
