Committed to building a sustainable future

From a simple boiler repair to a complete ground or air source heat pump system, South West Energy Services Ltd recognise the need to offer specialist expertise in delivering reliable, energy efficient and cost effective heating or cooling solutions.  We provide a turnkey package for all types of renewable energy and gas applications. We operate from our head office in Plymouth, Devon with 2 satellite offices in Clevedon, Somerset and Whitstable, Kent.

Not only are we capable of designing, specifying and installing advanced heating and cooling systems such as; under floor heating, radiators, fan coils and chilled beams but also provide our clients and end users with a nationwide support network.

We operate within residential, commercial and industrial sectors, building an extensive Ground & Air source heat pump installation portfolio and reputation.

If you have a project and require impartial advice on the suitability of renewable technologies including Solar Thermal, Air or Ground Source Heat Pumps or Solar PV please call our Technical team and speak to the experts.

With the growing demand and emphasis on green sustainable technologies, installing Heat Pumps, Biomass Boilers, Solar PV and Solar Thermal systems has never been more attractive and financially viable thanks to the Renewable Heat Incentive and the availability of tailored finance packages.

A+ Gas Boilers

We offer a range of SEDBUK A Rated, mains gas & LPG boilers from leading manufacturers. Supplied & installed prices for a 28kW combi start at £1950 inc VAT. Our gas appliance department also provides; service, breakdown and system upgrades for all types of of domestic and commercial mains Gas\LPG appliances.

Renewable Heat Incentive

See how the RHI can pay you back.

The Domestic and Commercial RHI is now in full swing with applicants receiving payments, covering 100% of the installation cost. The reduction in the Biomass tariff has allowed an increase in heat pump payments meaning installing a heat pump has never been so attractive

Environmental & financial benefits

Practical sustainable and renewable energy sources mean reductions in the use of fossil fuels through the use of proven technology.

Reduce your CO2 emissions: on average a heat pump could save around 1.8 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year when replacing an oil boiler.

  • Domestic heading accounts for over 35% of CO2 emissions in the UK.
  • Over 60% of the average homes CO2 emissions are created by the heating and hot water system.
  • Ground & Air source heat pumps are simple to install and are a direct replacement for existing oil and gas fired boilers.
  • Ground & Air source pumps are a proven technology which have been used all over the world as a primary domestic & commercial heat source for over 50 years.
  • Due to the high COP created by ground & air heat pump annual fuel bills can be reduced by as much as 50% when compared against Oil and LPG boilers.
  • With the RHI funding you can have your ground or air source heat pump system paid for within 7 years.
  • With Green Deal assistance a loan is available to pay for the upfront installation cost and when combined with the RHI you could have your system paid for in under 5 years!
  • RHI funding is now available for Commercial air source and ground source heat pump systems.
  • Call today to see how the RHI can benefit you or your business.

Specification of Commercial Ground & Air source heat pumps

The unique thermal characteristics and demands of a commercial building often means a traditional approach of separate boiler and chiller is taken to meet the peak heating and cooling loads. Due to increasing operational and energy costs, renewable technologies are becoming more common in modern developments but very rarely used to their full capability. There is a growing demand to increase sustainable value to a development and utilise natural resources more efficiently. Ground and air source heat pumps can replace or integrate with new and existing applications to provide; heating, hot water and cooling, efficiently as possible while reducing carbon emissions.

Although heat pumps in general offer the highest return on investment and lower energy bills, the initial capital cost can discourage developers and end users from investing in the technology. This is not to say heat pumps are the only solution. A majority of commercial heating and cooling applications operate at part load conditions throughout the year. The integration of a heat pump with gas\lpg or oil boilers can significantly reduce investment and operational costs while still meeting the design conditions.

Research carried out by construction consultants Sweett Group and BRE found that office developers typically invest up to 2% more when targeting higher BREEAM ratings, and recover that additional investment in two to five years through savings in their energy and water bills. The same research found that achieving lower BREEAM ratings can incur little or no additional cost.  http://www.breeam.com/index.jsp

There is a greater opportunity to specify recovery heat pumps which recover rejected energy from the cooling cycle to provide simultaneous heating and cooling with huge energy savings. This can be improved even further with a recovery ground source heat pump as rejected energy can be stored in the borehole array and harvested during the heating operation increasing the COP.

We offer a turnkey solution for all types of commercial heat pump systems from 5kW to 1MW.

We supply equipment as approved installation and service partners for; Dimplex, Thermia, Danfoss, Carrier, Clivet, CIAT and Climaveneta.
