Installation of an Air Source Heat Pump, water cylinder and 6 radiators
 
Cost: £11340
 

"Dominic, the owner of Home Renewables has been exemplary. He originally came to discuss the proposition and the Government Grant & Loan option which he did thoroughly and very clearly, without pressure or demands forup front deposits or inflated fees for the requisite EPC & throughout has been very patient with all my questions. I sought out 3 quotes & in the end chose my local supplier for his proximity and for his manner in dealing with me. He then surveyed the property for the Heat Loss/Demand calculations to supply the size radiators for the required heat output.

Near the agreed start date, I paid a deposit of ~10% to order the rads & cylinder. Then the engineer Roy came to organise the how/what/where of the installation. I paid another installment before work commenced and the Team started work promptly and within 3 days the pump and the cylinder and most of the rads were installed. On the Friday work was finished and the Joiner Kieran came to refit new skirting boards & box in the vertical pipes. The bathroom install had to wait until after my planned refurbishment took place, and then Roy came back to fit that radiator with good communications between all parties.

The team were all very personable, cleaned up as much as you can expect, caused no more disruption than necessary although as with any works being carried out in your home, you need to stay on top of things and be party to whatever decisions are being made. I cant say there weren't any mistakes or mishaps but Dominic has followed up and checked on progress throughout and came out in person several times during and after the install, so I felt overall I was given good service and well looked after. He is even going to replace some of the loft insulation which suffered a bit during the cylinder install which wasnt easy. The loft hatch had to be dismantled and Kieran did a good job restoring that. It did take a little time to find the right balance of settings to feel comfortable with the hot water supply & heat output- if anything I felt too warm, and again Dominic was accommodating in explaining & helping with this. I am glad I chose a local supplier.

I am very happy with the look of the rads, the quietness of the pump (Mitsibishi Ecodan 8 KW)and the efficiency of the system. I am very glad I did this installation and can certainly recommend Home Renewables. In fact I already have to an interested neighbour. My electricity consumption is very moderate at about 30kWh /day in winter given that I live in an uninsulated traditional stone cottage which was utterly freezing before and had condensation mould on the walls in several rooms. I am also delighted to be wholly green in my energy supply, using a 100% renewables Electricity supplier and totally free of fossil fuels."

Fitting of air source heat pump, replaced boiler and water tank and fitted 11 new radiators throughout as well as removing existing power storage heaters.
 
Cost: £14300
 

"This company was brilliant. They did everything requested to the highest standard, were professional to the core, tidied up after themselves and cannot be faulted in any way.
They communicated really well with us despite the fact we were out of the country at the time of the job itself and they were also significantly cheaper than national rivals.
I cannot recommend this company highly enough as they even assisted fully with the Renewable Heat Incentive application and retro fitted wi-fi controls at minimal cost."

Air source heating service
 
Cost: £180
 

"Fab service from start to finish. Air source heating service was booked in easily and quickly. On the day of the service our electric was off and the service couldn’t go ahead but this was no problem to them and they easily rescheduled for the next day. Job was done in good time and very happy with the reassurance our heating has been serviced."
