Smart thermostats??

January 27, 2015

Were always on the look out for up to date systems and controls. We have recently been installing the NEST smart thermostat. We have also installed one of these in our own home and seen a reduction of our usage of around 25-30% on our existing system and nest states unto a 60% saving if you haven’t already had a thermostat installed, which is a massive saving you are missing out on. Nest Learning thermostat short video

Happy New Year!!

January 6, 2015

A very happy new year from Ribble Valley Renewables and all the best for 2015.

2015 has already brought us a reduction of the Feed in Tariff for domestic installations, reducing the payments by 10 percent on new installations. This hasn’t stopped demand for biomass installations though – We have many in the pipeline and will keep you updated as we go along.

An update on our work before christmas is a 36 Kw Verner pellet boiler supplied by Ashburn stoves, with a 1000l heat store, the old system and controls were reused – A great example of a retro fit system.

In 2015 we are also introducing a service/maintenance plans on all renewable, gas and oil appliances. Our plans offer, service only, service and parts and also service parts and breakdowns. There is more information on our RV Heating website.

Please contact us if you have any questions
