Solar Hot Water & Heating
Solar hot water systems which is also know as Solar thermal can harness heat from sunlight by capturing the energy that is radiated by the sun within solar panels.
Solar Water Heating is not Solar PV (PhotoVoltaic), which is designed to generate electricity from the Solar panels. We can install a power divertor to your PV system which will direct any surplus electricity to an immersion heater or an electric storage heater so you can get the full use of the output from the PV system.
This heat energy is moved down pipes into the hot water cylinder that is within your home, reducing the need to use Gas, Oil or Electricity to heat hot water that you require; lowering energy bills as well as your carbon footprint.
We can harnessing heat from sunlight which is captured by energy which is radiated from the sun within solar panels.
We also offer solar warm air. This is a total free to run heating panel that captures sunlight and transfers it to hot , which is then blown into your home.
Central Heating Installation
In most homes in the uk the gas central heating is the main heating method. This is a heating system that consists of water that is in a gas-powered boiler that heats water to provide central heating throughout the house. The heat comes through radiators and the taps can provide you with hot water around your house. Natural gas a most common type of fuel used to power the boilers within your house or offices, with heating oil coming out in second. If your house isn’t connected to the gas network then it is possible to use electrical heating instead of the gas heating.
Heating your home can be expensive depending on the type of heating that is used, so we can help you to improve the efficiency of your heating system to save energy and money. We can do this very easily if you are starting from scratch with a brand new, high efficiency system or we can even sort your old system if it isn’t broken. But there are usually ways in which we can help you get better performance from an existing system as well. We can also fit electric heating pumps.

Underfloor heating from Hill Group Services Ltd provides invisible, controllable heat on demand when and where it is needed the most…
Delivering economic, environmental and efficiency savings, underfloor heating is a pioneering system geared up to the specialist needs of today’s modern construction environment.
Our system comes complete with insulation, pipework and associated retaining mechanism as well as the screed system.
Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy by using the photovoltaic cells. These cells do not need direct sunlight to work, they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day. The cells can convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting systems.
The benefits of solar electricity
- Cut your electricity bills
- Get paid for the electricity you generate
- Sell electricity back to the grid
- Cut your carbon footprint

Whole House Ventilation
So why do we need ventilation?
The Building regulations require a minimum rate of ventilation equivalent to one air change for the whole building every two hours.
General improvements in the house construction, building regulations and much higher levels of insulation in modern dwellings mean that houses are becoming almost airtight. Consequently, the air inside becomes stale with a build up of moisture and smells. The moisture can result in condensation and mould, and a generally ‘stuffy’ atmosphere.
What types of ventilation are available?
1) Single room extractors
Traditionally, ventilation has been provided by individual extract fans fitted to bathrooms and other wet rooms. These provide short term ventilation, usually very noisily. The extracted air is replaced by fresh air entering the house through trickle vents in the window frames. These are neither attractive nor particularly sensible (having spent a lot of money on a well insulated house with high specification double glazing, a hole is made in the window frame in order to create a draught!)
2) Central Extract Ventilation
As modern houses have more wet rooms, so it becomes more economical to replace several individual extractors with one Central extract ventilation unit. With a CEV unit, only one vent to the exterior is required (via wall grill or roof vent) in order to expel the stale air and only one electrical connection with the obvious savings in installation costs over individual extract fans.
Using central extract ventilation, the replacement fresh air still enters the house through trickle vents. The fan runs continuously, allowing a gentle and imperceptible flow of air through the building. A CEV unit will have an override boost setting for the occasions when there are unpleasant smells or excessive moisture which need to be extracted. Whilst this is the minimum ventilation required by building regulations, it does mean that warm (stale) air is expelled from the building and is replaced cold fresh air, resulting in a loss of heat.
We can also provide a heat recovery system that exports out going warm air and via a heat exchanger warm the fresh air entering the house.
Poor ventilation allows:
- a build up of humidity resulting in condensation
- the growth of mould in damp areas
- the accumulation of unpleasant smells
- a build up of carbon dioxide and other noxious substances
- conditions in which dust mites thrive
By removing the stagnant damp air from a building, central extract unit will prevent a ‘stuffy’ atmosphere and the problems associated with poor ventilation can be eliminated. Good ventilation is of great benefit to those who suffer from asthma and other respiratory complaints.
