Renewable energy technologies like solar, air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer an alternative to fossil fuels and can help reduce your homes CO2 emissions and save you hundreds of pounds.
Solar panel heating
A typical well sized solar system should provide around 50-70% of the domestic hot water requirements of a home, representing a very worthwhile saving on hot water heating costs. The remaining hot water requirement is provided by the boiler.
Solar panels harness the power in both direct and diffused sunlight and convert the energy to heat for the production of hot water for the home. The solar panels have been designed as a complement to existing heating systems which use a store of hot water in a cylinder. The existing cylinder is exchanged for a cylinder with two heat exchanger coils; one from the boiler in the property and a second from the solar panels.
The Worcester Greenskies solar panels are a perfect partner to the new range of condensing Greenstar regular and system boilers, with different models available in both oil and gas, which require a separate cylinder for the storage of hot water. When used together a Greenstar boiler and solar system provide a highly efficient system to give heating and hot water comfort.
Air to air heat pumps
Worcester’s range of air source heat pumps offer significant savings compared with a conventional heating system. The air source heat pumps convert the free and sustainable latent energy in the air into heat, delivering green, low-cost, energy-saving heating and hot water all year round year round.
Where space is limited, Greensource Air to Air Heat Pumps are an attractive alternative for providing energy efficient heating because the only space requirement is an external wall, making them ideal for apartments and smaller homes.
An air to air heat pump is an all-in-one heating and cooling system that is designed to provide year-round comfort. The Greensource Air to Air Heat Pump converts the energy from the air outside into heat and then circulates warm air internally to provide a comfortable temperature inside the home. As an extra benefit, Greensource Air to Air Heat Pumps can also operate as an air cooler and purifier using Plasmacluster Ion-technology
Air to water heat pumps
Worcester’s range of air to water heat pumps offer significant savings compared with a conventional heating systems.
Worcester Greensource air source heat pumps are intended to be the sole source of heating and hot water production for the home. Air to water heat pumps use the constant energy available in the air with a refrigerant circuit which allows the temperature to be boosted to a useful level for heating or hot water for the home.
Greenstore ground source heat pumps
Worcester ground source heat pumps use the natural energy stored in the ground to and are designed to be the sole source for heating and hot water for your home.
There’s no need for an additional boiler and for every single kilowatt of electricity used to power the ground source heat pumps this system could generate four kilowatts or more in energy for your home. Ground source heat pumps can provide low-cost comfortable heating that use sustainable energy, causing no direct emissions or other damage to the environment.
Greenstore ground source heat pumps are suitable for a variety of different properties, to find out if ground source heat pumps are suitable for your property please visit Would ground source heat pumps suit my property?.

Central Heating Boilers Fuelled by Wood Pellets
If you are looking for an alternative and cost efective way to heat your home then a Biomass Boiler could be a good option..
Heating with wood pellets is regarded as a carbon neutral energy source, when pellets are burnt they release energy absorbed during the trees growth which is equal to the
CO2 absorbed during the trees growth. The Pellets are made of 100% re- cycled natural wood, shavings and sawdust that are compressed under high pressure, pressed into small cylindrical rolls and held together by lignin, a compound that’s contained naturally in wood. This results in a clean, convenient fuel with a high calorific value and very low ash content (0.2%).
With the ever increasing cost to heat your home biomass boilers offer an excellent alternative. At just 5.2 pence per KWh, wood pellets offer you a 40% saving over Heating Oil @ 7.88 pence per KWh, LPG @ 8.44 pence per KWh and Electricity @ 10.62 pence per KW.
With advanced combustion technology modern biomass boilers are perfectly designed to burn either split logs or pellets as a fuel, resulting in very low emission values. Extremely high efficiency levels are also achieved through the combustion of this environmentally friendly fuel.
With automatic transportation of the pellets to the combustion chamber, automatic ignition, self activated cleaning and large ash container modern biomass combine to provide a convenient alternative.
