Renewable energy

Renewable energy is not only a way for energy consumers to be kinder to our planet; it is also an opportunity to invest in technology that is financially rewarding.

Domestic and General are accredited by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), confirming we work to the highest quality standards, allowing our customers to be assured of competent and high quality installation of renewable energy technologies. The MCS Scheme is an internationally recognised quality assurance scheme similar to the Gas Safe Register (previously the Corgi register).

Being MCS registered means our installations are eligible for financial incentives such as the feed-in tariff and renewable heat incentive.

We are accredited to install solar panels (PV and thermal), ground source heat pumps, air source heat pumps, biomass, micro CHP, rainwater harvesting and under floor heating.

Solar panels

Solar energy is the main thing that comes to mind when people think of renewable energy sources, with solar panels being amongst the most popular alternative fuel sources. Over the years the technology behind solar panels has become increasingly efficient, making them much more cost-effective and an increasingly viable solution to the issue of high energy bills.

Photovoltaic solar panels convert sunlight into electricity which is fed directly into your property’s electricity supply. Thermal solar panels absorb energy from the sun’s rays and convert it into heat to warm your home’s water supply.

Domestic and General Insulation are fully accredited installers of both photovoltaic and thermal solar panel solutions. We can ensure that the customer has all of the advice they need and will happily talk through the benefits of having such systems installed.

Solar has become the most viable alternative energy source and, with schemes like the feed-in tariff, there is also the potential to make money in addition to saving on energy bills.

Both are excellent ways of creating renewable energy for your home and make good financial sense.

Heat pumps

Domestic and General install two types of heat pump – air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps. Both are viable alternatives to more traditional heating systems.
