At German Homes we provide a broad range of heating system options depending upon your needs. From heat pumps to geothermal solutions, solar panel to solid fuel. We also offer rain water harvesting solutions as well as smart home technology.
Air to Water Heatpump System
Air to water heat pumps extract energy from outside air (even when the air is cold) they require no drilling or digging and are an ideal solution for most existing houses.
Geothermal – Vertical collector
A well is drilled into the ground and a “ground probe” is installed. Heat transfer takes place in the well, using groundwater or grout as a thermal conductor to aid heat transfer.
Geothermal – Horizontal Collector
Most common collection method in larger sites, as it is cheaper to install than vertical. Efficiency is the same as vertical, though some extra collector pipework is necessary.
Solar Panels – Flat & Tube Collectors
Solar Water Heaters are a cost-effective, efficient, and eco-friendly way to generate up to 70% of the hot water needed for you home. From water for showers, or a low-cost heat source.
Photovoltaic panels generate electrical power by converting solar radiation into direct current electricity using semiconductors that exhibit the photovoltaic effect.
A wind turbine is a generator installed on top of a tower that converts wind energy into electricity, to be used in your home, farm or factory.
Heat Recovery System
Heat recovery ventilation can continually remove moist, stale air and replace it with fresh pre-heated air. These air changes reduce
the material present in the air which is either inhaled or falls onto the carpets and soft furnishings.
Pressurised domestic water system
A pressurised water system is a combined storage and pumping solution.
This takes the place of the traditional cold water storage in the attic, which provides generally poor pressure to showers, taps etc.
Rainwater harvesting systems channel rainwater that falls on to a roof into storage via a system of gutters and pipes.
Solid fuel / gas stoves
Stoves are 95% efficient versus open fires which are 15-20% efficient they reduces heating requirement and help your home achieve a better energy rating.
Smart Home Technology
The installation of modern cabling and technology systems, providing home owners with access to a wide range of communication and entertainment services.
