Reduce your carbon footprint and your energy bills
At Lewington Heating, we’ve been installing renewable energy systems since we first launched our Lewington Renewable division in 2000. The installation of air source and ground source heat pumps (for which we won a Worcester Bosch Environment 2020 award) is our primary focus, mainly using the NIBE and Worcester brands, but we can also carry out solar panel servicing and repairs – which are perfect for new builds or people who live off the main gas grid.
In most cases, installing renewable energy sources means you can get money back from the government by applying to the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme. You also pay VAT at the reduced rate of 5% on certain RHI-qualifying technologies, and can use renewable systems to reduce your energy bills while protecting the environment, so it’s win-win!
With 18 models of domestic ground source heat pumps and 5 models of air source heat pumps available, NIBE is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of sustainable energy solutions.
Worcester Greensource air and ground source heat pumps and Worcester Greenskies solar water heating solutions are the perfect way to reduce your property’s carbon footprint.
The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is a government body for installation quality assurance designed to promote the use of renewable heating solutions.
Why not use the outside air to heat your home? Even in freezing cold winters (as low as -15°C), an air source heat pump can extract heat from the air to heat your home and hot water.
Using a renewable source and a NIBE heat pump can reduce your heating costs by up to 65%. The exact figure will depend on where you live, the size of your house and the fuel you are replacing. Heat pumps can halve your home’s carbon emissions as there is no combustion process involved, which is great news for the environment.
Ground source heat pumps can heat your home using pipes buried in the ground to extract natural heat and provide heat and hot water all year round.
The benefits don’t stop there. Heat pumps can save up to 80% on your heating bills by harnessing free energy. It’s also environmentally friendly, producing lower carbon emissions than traditional heating systems.
Solar water heating solutions, aka solar thermal technology, use panels on your roof to collect the heat from the sun to heat your water.
Solar thermal can be used alongside a regular immersion heater or boiler, which will kick in when your solar supply runs out. The more water you can heat in this way, the less money you’ll spend on heating bills – can you believe that most homes use around 25% of their total energy to heat water?
Harnessing a free energy source is great for the environment and offers typical savings of £55 to £80 a year and RHI funding of up to £300 a year, although the bigger your property and the more panels you have, the higher your eventual savings will be.
Luckily for us here in the UK, solar panels work on daylight not actual sunshine! Solar PV generates electricity on the gloomiest of days as the panels absorb the sun’s energy and convert it into electricity, which can be used to power your household appliances and lighting. The Energy Saving Trust estimates a typical 4kWp system can reduce the average household’s annual energy bill by around £70, and you can even get paid for any extra electricity you generate.
Having installed many solar panels over the years, we have the expertise to repair, service and maintain your system to ensure it continues to operate efficiently.
At Lewington’s we install hydronic underfloor heating systems, more commonly known as wet UFH.
Underfloor Heating Vs. Conventional Radiators
Thank you Lewingtons
I am writing to express how pleased I am and to praise your team of employees. All of whom I think are excellent. I’d like to mention Graham who recently attended and fixed my boiler which was not working properly. As well as fixing the boiler, Graham’s recognition of the problem saved me a lot of money and for this I am most grateful. Darren who looked at the boiler initially (and got it going),…

Very prompt at coming out when our boiler broke down and quickly fitted us in. Very efficient and professional with all paperwork concerned. Professional, courteous workmen who very quickly installed new boiler, had excellent knowledge and cleaned everywhere up. Very pleased.

As a landlord I need a heating company that will respond to me quickly and flexibly, so that when a tenant has a problem it is fixed quickly. I have used Lewington’s for 10 years – they are very skilled, will give you honest advice and are totally reliable

We use them for all our plumbing and heating needs. We have experienced their customer service in all forms at our works premises, our homes and our families homes. New boiler installations, annual boiler services, a new en-suite fitted and the newest to be solar panels on our roof. We have always found Lewingtons to be reliable, fairly priced and always receive a professional service from them.

Professional, patient and determined
After two failed attempts to find the fault in our heating system by two plumbing businesses, we phoned Lewingtons! How I wished we had known about them before! Professional, patient and determined are three words that come to mind. We now have a heating system that is working perfectly!!

I’d like to thank Scott for the work he did on my mums boiler and the water tank, it was not an easy space to work in. I am very glad her heating system is working, something we rely on.
