Earth Save Products can be installed retrospectively to improve SAP ratings within a property.
We are regularly contacted by potential Clients for help with improving the energy efficiency of an existing house. Our products can be retro-fitted to help your property achieve a higher SAP/EPC rating and lower running costs. The Clients range from individuals renovating their house, through to large construction companies/Mechanical and electrical contractors. They all have a common need to improve the energy efficiency of what they are building or renovating.
Our Ecocent hot water unit is ideal for improving energy efficiency – it is easy to install and uses waste heat from the building to produce hot water at up to 60 deg C. The units range from 100ltr to 300ltrs in various styles. They replace a traditional cylinder and use air source heat pump technology to heat the water incredibly efficiently – for every 1kW of electricity used, it delivers 4.5kW of heat to the water (even at 60 deg C). Because the Ecocents are the hot water cylinder as well, the marginal cost of the unit over a traditional cylinder is low; making the investment decision pretty straight forward (when replacing an existing cylinder or for a new build).
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
The Ecocent can also be used as a central mechanical extract ventilation unit and is qualified under Building Regs as a Category 3 ventilation unit. The unit can be used to deliver centralised mechanical ventilation and will use heat from the ventilated air to heat the hot water (thereby recovering heat that would otherwise be completely wasted). The unit is listed in SAP for both the ventilation and hot water generation duties and the system costs a fraction of what a whole house ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR) system would cost.
There are no other units like the Ecocent listed in SAP and they are a relatively easy and low cost way to improve SAP and EPC ratings. The unit’s efficiency and effectiveness has also enabled it to win multiple prestigious national awards.
