Green Energy Technology


Renewable energy is energy that has been derived from earth’s natural resources that are not finite or exhaustible.   Renewable energy is an alternative to the traditional energy that relies on fossil fuels, and it tends to be much less harmful to the environment.  Lincoln Plumbing and Heating can advise you on a range of ways to efficiently and reliably heat your property.  From air source heating, ground source heating, biomass and solar thermal, we specialise in green energy technology that works.

Biomass is an academic term, which often confuses people. The term “biomass” is in fact shorthand for 'biological mass'.  Biomass boilers work in a similar manner to conventional boilers, where water is heated up and then then connected into your central heating system. Biomass boilers burn wood pellets, chips or logs as a renewable, eco-friendly fuel source with almost zero carbon emissions instead of traditional and expensive fossil fuels.

Air Source Heat Pumps are self contained low maintenance units that only require water and electrical connections and can be placed discreetly outside homes.   They absorb heat from outside air which can then be transferred to a central heating system in a home.

Ground Source Heat Pumps are made up of a network of water pipes buried underground with a heat pump at ground level.   A mixture of water and anti freeze is pumped around the ground loop and absorbs the naturally occurring heat stored in the ground.   The water mixture goes through a heat exchanger and is transferred to the heat pump which is then transferred to the home heating system.

Solar Thermal is also known as a Solar Hot Water System.  This system is a renewable energy source that harnesses heat from sunlight by capturing energy that is radiated by the sun within solar panels.  Pipes transfer the energy to a cylinder to heat hot water.
