Solar water heating
Installing solar hot water systems, the fuel of the future, helps to conserve our dwindling resources, is reliable and available in almost unlimited quantities providing a security few other energy sources can offer.
Solar domestic hot water systems can be added to almost any property and seamless integration with wood pellet or log burning appliances provides the perfect renewable energy solution.

Ground Source Heat Pump
How it works
Geothermal or ground source energy can be harnessed by burying pipes beneath the ground.
Ground source heat pumps are electrically powered systems that use the natural energy stored in the earth to heat your home. It's a simple principle, and the result is low-cost heating that uses sustainable energy and causes no direct emissions or other damage to the environment. TSS often uses Worcester's Greenstar ground source heat pumps which are suitable for a variety of different properties and are designed to be the sole source of heating and hot water in the home.
For each kilowatt of electricity used to power the ground source heat pumps, this system could produce four kilowatts or more in energy for your home, whilst helping to preserve the earth's supplies of non-renewable fossil fuels.
Wood burners & biomass heating
TSS has two options for using biomass to heat your home: you can use a stove to heat an individual room, or a boiler that will connect to your central heating and hot water systems.
Biomass is produced from organic materials, either from plants or from industrial, commercial, domestic or agricultural products but not fossil fuels. Producing energy from biomass has great environmental and economic advantages.
Although biomass produces CO2, it only releases the same amount that it absorbed whilst growing, which is why it can be called 'carbon neutral'. Also, biomass can contribute to waste management by harnessing energy from products that are often disposed of at landfill.
Wood burning stoves
Woodburning stoves heat up more quickly than any other kind of heating and can produce 6-12kW (kilowatts) of heat at any point in time They are usually designed to go in the living room of a house, where they provide total or partial heating for the room.
