Feasibility

There are a host of considerations to be made when building, renovating or updating a property. Upgrading the heating system and making it as efficient as possible can sometimes be an after thought. With a detailed feasibility study carried out by Thermal Earth we are able to provide a feasibility study of the property prior to any work being carried out. Thermal Earth will consider a range of renewable energy technologies and advise on how best to optimise the efficiency of the system and building.

INSTALLATION/UPGRADE OF BUILDING ELEMENTS WHERE POSSIBLE

New buildings are often very well insulated inline with Building Regulations requirements, older properties can sometimes have their heatload drastically reduced through simple measures in improving insulation. Loft spaces are easily accessible, however improving the insulation and walls can sometimes be more difficult. Thermal Earth can recommend how best to improve insulation in the more inaccessible areas whilst other work is being carried out (e.g. improving insulation in floors and ceiling whilst Underfloor Heating is being installed). Upgrades to windows and doors will also lower the heatload of the building, Thermal Earth can assess what impact improving the various elements will have to the heatload and the efficiency of the system.

SUITABILITY OF RENEWABLE TECHNOLOGY TO THE PROPERTY AND CUSTOMER

The suitability of renewable technologies depends on a number of factors including heatload of the building, supply of fuel, customer’s lifestyle etc. Thermal Earth will provide an impartial recommendation on what renewable technology is best suited to you and your property and can provide the following

  • Capital cost of the installation
  • Estimated payback times
  • Ongoing maintenance and running costs
  • Estimated returns from any applicable incentive/payback schemes such as the Renewable Heat Incentive

Upon receipt of a feasibility report the customer should be well informed of the renewable technologies on offer and be confident that the recommendations have been well investigated and justified.
