Do I Need to Hire a Local 'Renewable Energy Specialist'?

If you have, or would like to have installed, a central heating system that runs on alternative energy, then a local renewable heating systems specialist is the right person to call. Lots of homes are switching to renewable energy systems, because they are more cost-effective and eco-friendly than traditional gas, oil or combi systems and can help to reduce our carbon footprint.

A central heating system that runs on renewable energy sources will need to be installed, certified and maintained by a specialist renewable energy installer, someone who is fully trained in the type of system you would like fitted, whether that’s a solar thermal system, a solar photovoltaic system, pellet heating or something else entirely. HaMuch can help you find the perfect person for the job.

What Does a Renewable Energy and Resources Specialist Near You Do?

An alternative energies specialist will:

  • Renewable heating installation: An engineer can take care of the installation of solar panels, photovoltaic panels, pellet heating systems and ground/air heat pumps for your home.
  • Repair equipment or appliances: Just like anything, renewable systems can break down. A specialist will be able to repair your electrical equipment on-site. For a more extensive job, they may be able to take the faulty units away and carry out the work in their workshop.
  • Cleaning and maintenance: Each alternative energy technology requires a different level of maintenance. A renewable energy and resource specialist can discuss this with you as part of the project schedule.
  • Advice, design, and planning: Are you redesigning or constructing the external layout of your home? If so, a renewable energy specialist can also support the installation of brand new renewable heating systems, as well as advising on additional systems like rainwater harvesting, helping to get your home running at peak efficiency,
