Replacing emission-heavy gas boilers with new heat pumps and associated pipework to protect the environment
Over the past few years, Arcade has been commissioned to refurbish various plant rooms; installing new heat pump technology in place of old, emission-heavy gas and oil-fired boilers.
Heat pumps provide an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional fossil fuel heating solutions such as gas boilers. A heat pump extracts energy from the air, ground or water around a building, processing this energy to be used to heat the property and water.
Heat pumps can also be used for cooling, to assist industrial processes such as heating, cooling and drying, as well as boiler preheating.
According to the Carbon Trust, heat pumps in England use 55-65% less carbon than an A-rated gas boiler, increasing to 100% if you use renewable electricity.
Our clients in this service area are numerous and include:
- National institutions – such as the British Film Institute (BFI)
- Building sector experts – such as Carrier
- Public sector and Local Authorities – such as Barnet Council and Central Bedfordshire schools
- Commercial property developers
