Ron Gale and Sons Ltd are MCS accredited installers of Solar Thermal and Biomass Heating Systems
The Kingspan Solar range, from Kingspan Renewables Ltd, reflects our on-going commitment to a zero carbon lifestyle and a brighter future for us all. When it comes to creating efficient and cost-effective energy solutions that address today's growing environmental concerns, the Kingspan Solar range of products leads the way. Thermomax is the original and still the best vacuum tube collector in the world. This premium product performs more efficiently than flat plate collectors and in particular, Thermomax systems out-perform competitors in Northern Europe and other less sunny climates.
Solar energy is free, clean and safe. It is environmentally friendly and produces no waste or pollution. Using solar energy enables you to reduce your carbon footprint as well as your energy bills. Grants are available through many Government schemes.
The sun radiates enormous amounts of energy to the earth. In the UK and Ireland we receive, on average per year, as much as 60% of that received on the equator. This radiation is similar to the output of 1,000 power stations.
Solar thermal technology transforms direct and diffuse solar radiation into useful heat using a solar collector.
Each collector consists of a highly insulated water manifold and a row of tubes. The vacuum inside each tube provides perfect insulation and therefore, protects the system from outside influences, such as cold and windy weather or high humidity. This vacuum insulation also ensures that the energy collected from the sun is very efficiently and effectively transferred into usable heat as there is minimal heat loss.
Biomass Heating Systems
Biomass boilers offer an environmentally sound, heating solution. Burning biomass, such as wood pellets or logs, emits the same amount of carbon dioxide as is absorbed while the plants were growing. Therefore, biomass is classed as carbon-neutral/renewable energy.
Biomass boilers burn biomass fuels and efficiently extract energy to provide heating and hot water. They can also be more cost effective and efficient than fossil fuel boilers.
Biomass boilers are designed to provide a low carbon solution to meet your energy needs.
They can reduce both your energy consumption and your fuel bills, whilst providing a constant supply of clean, sustainable 'carbon neutral' heating and hot water throughout the year.
Various types of biomass boilers are available in a range of outputs; the choice of boiler depends on factors such as fuel availability, physical constraints and your individual requirements. It is essential to select the right type and capacity carefully.
Some biomass boilers are fuelled automatically from a large hopper; the built-in versions can hold several days' supply of biomass which is fed to the boiler fire as required, whereas other models are connected to a separate bulk storage hopper that can store enough fuel to last a few weeks.
