Heating your house and water for free

This is how we have solved our 'energy crisis' - as far as heating, both water and space, is concerned:

… our goals and rules
“Three priorities: resilience, resilience and resilience”

Reduce consumption !
Stop paying for it
Make it yourself
Invest now, when stuff is still cheap
Manual systems better then automated
Forget grants, they just go to installers
Forget payback periods, energy will keep going up
Combine complimentary systems
Double up: two systems better than one

In practice:

“Use Solar. It’s free!”

Installed 360 litre heat store
Powered by 40-tube solar water heating tubes
And wood burner with internal boiler
And electrical immersion heater (using home grown renewable energy)

Supplies plenty of hot water 365 days a year
Wood burner sufficient to heat whole house (4 beds)
Stores heat overnight and heats the house via connection to central heating circuit automatically each morning
Solar coils positioning in heat store important

Total cost some £5,500 to buy and install.
Running costs: free

All entirely carbon neutral and bills free (if you have enough wood to burn)

If you want more info or want to see the system in action, come to the next Cottage Farm open day and/or send me an email. Happy to help.
