Innovation Partner: Alternative Heating Solutions

Alternative Heating Solutions Ltd

Alternative Heating Solutions

At Alternative Heating Solutions, we are aspiring to be a true alternative to mainstream heating system providers and installers.

We have combined a revolutionary infrared space heating technology with exhaust air or thermodynamic heat pumps for hot water provision. These technologies combined, offer our customers the true whole-house heating solution.

Infrared heating delivers comfortable radiant space heating that’s also efficient and virtually maintenance-free. Exhaust air heat pumps offer low energy consumption hot water heating coupled with a ventilation and heat recovery function. Thermodynamic heat pumps are another hot water heating solution with only one moving part – the refrigerant compressor – making them very easy to install and maintain. Thermodynamic heat pumps also benefit from an external heat exchanger panel, which when exposed to direct sunlight, boost the Coefficiency of Performance of the heat pump. Both exhaust air and thermodynamic heat pumps do not require the installation of an external condenser, making them best suited for city center locations and multistorey residential buildings.

We also understand that heating goes hand in hand with ventilation. Therefore, we offer excellent passive ventilation devices. These come in various models that feature: back drought prevention flap, background heater, particle filters, and external noise silencers.

We also provide conventional Air Source Heat Pumps and Solar Thermal collectors and are the MCS registered contractor.
