“I was impressed with the complete Egnida package from the initial survey which was professionally undertaken by engineers rather than sales people, to the drawing up of the contract to the installation and final commissioning which went without a hitch." Mr Sheppard

we transform "castles" into "power stations"

Egnida recognise that the old maxim, “a person’s home is their castle”, is certainly true when it comes to the energy aspects of home ownership because in most cases, just like castles, homes are inefficient, expensive to operate and rarely fully utilised.

We have a whole range of cutting edge solutions we can deploy for you ranging from energy efficiency measures through to generating your own heat and electricity. Unlike others we don’t sell these solutions, rather we leave you with the legacy you want and can afford. We do this by adopting a “whole house” approach so we can fully understand the physical dynamics of your home, how you currently use (and probably waste) energy, what you want to achieve and what your budget is.

It is only after this review is completed can we make informed recommendations as to what is the most effective way for you to utilise your budget to ensure your desired outcome is achievable. All of our solutions are delivered by fully accredited installers and where appropriate, we can even offer you a comprehensive monitoring and maintenance package giving you complete peace of mind and leaving you free to decide how best to spend or invest the money you will be saving or making (if you are generating your own energy) in your newly enhanced home.

solar PV & solar thermal

solar PV & solar thermal

solar PV & solar thermal

Solar PV is quickly becoming the technology customers choose for their on-site energy generation, with a relatively low installation cost, an excellent return on investment and ongoing support from UK Government through the Feed in Tariff subsidy.

the facts

Solar PV systems capture the sun’s rays and convert them directly into electricity to power your home. It can also be used to heat water, known as solar thermal. A south facing roof and direct sunlight is preferable, however with advances in technology this is becoming less important, making it a viable solution for more homeowners. The vast majority of solar PV systems do not require planning permission, however please check with us or your local planning office before making any substantial investments.

Installation costs for solar PV systems vary depending on the specific requirements of every customer, but a typical installation is expected to produce double digit returns, making them an attractive investment option for both domestic and commercial buildings. Solar PV also offers you the chance to be sustainable and secure an inflation proof energy supply for the next 20 years.

the benefits

  • Electricity costs can be greatly reduced
  • The UK Government backed Feed-In Tariff (FITs) mechanism provides inflation proof financial benefits over a 20 year period
  • Solar energy can significantly reduce the carbon footprint
  • Maintenance requirements are generally very low
  • Offers you energy security for the next 20 years

Egnida are also able to offer customers funding for their solar PV installations. Click here to find out about our funding options.

biomass

biomass

biomass

Biomass boilers are an effective way of burning wood pellets, chips or logs into heat to be fed into your homes existing supply and provide a sustainable, low cost energy solution. The UK Government are supporting the installation of biomass boilers through the Renewable Heat Incentive subsidy (RHI), making it an attractive solution, with a relatively quick payback term.

the facts

A biomass boiler generates heat and hot water by burning wood pellets, chips or logs in wood fuelled stoves and biomass boilers. It can be a standalone stove which provides heat for a single room or can be fitted with back boilers for additional heating.

Biomass boilers can supply hot water or space heating for domestic homes and to ensure the system works at optimum efficiency, needs to be designed and installed to meet individual building requirements, customer requirements and heat demand.

Two important aspects of biomass boilers are the flue and fuel store which must be safe, practical and installed under MCS and HETAS guidance.

the benefits

  • When replacing solid fuel, oil, LPG or electric heating, substantial cost savings can be achieved
  • Biomass is now supported by the UK Government backed Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) that provides inflation proof financial benefits over the life of the projects
  • Biomass solutions are considered carbon neutral and therefore provide environmental benefits compared to fossil fuel alternatives

ground source

ground source

ground source

Ground source heat pumps provide a reliable and constant generation of heat, utilising the natural heat underground to warm your buildings while maintaining a very low running cost. The technology is supported by the UK Government through the Renewable Heat Incentive subsidy (RHI) , making it an attractive solution with a relatively quick payback term.

the facts

Ground source heat pumps absorb underground energy and convert it into heat, which can be used to heat your home. A liquid combination of antifreeze and water is pumped around a pipe loop buried outside and flows back through a heat exchanger, which is transferred in to heat for radiators, hot water or under floor heating systems all year round.

Ground source heat pumps can use horizontal or vertical (borehole) pipe loops dependent on the property and the adjacent land area available. Horizontal systems require a significant ground area, whereas vertical borehole systems, subject to suitable ground conditions, can be installed in a relatively small area of ground.

the benefits

  • Ground Source Heat Pumps can lower fuel bills, especially when replacing older or inefficient systems
  • When switching from conventional electric heating, Ground Source Heat Pumps are particularly cost effective
  • Ground Source Heat Pumps can reduce your carbon emissions and no fuel delivery costs are involved
  • Ground Source Heat Pumps are a very low maintenance solution

air source

air source

air source

Air source heat pumps use the air in the atmosphere to heat interior spaces of your buildings through a conversion process. They are a highly effective solution that takes an abundant resource and turns it into a reliable heat source that helps to improve airflow.

the facts

An air source heat pump absorbs energy from external air and converts it into heat which can be used in your home. There are two types of air source heat systems available:

  • Air to water – for radiators, hot water and under floor heating
  • Air to air – for the circulation of warm air via convectors

Air source heat pumps are able to continue generating heat even when external temperatures are as low as -15°C, meaning it is capable of supplying a constant source of heat to your property, all year round.

the benefits

  • When replacing a conventional electric system, fuel bills can be lowered, so the system quickly pays for itself
  • Air Source Heat Pump systems are easier to install than Ground Source Heat Pumps, but are not as efficient
  • Carbon emissions can be reduced because no fuel deliveries are required
  • Air Source Heat Pump systems require very little ongoing maintenance.

energy storage
