Barnsley-based renewables installer Just Renewables Ltd is practising what it preaches, having recently installed a fully operational Ariston NUOS floor standing unvented cylinder with integrated air source heat pump water heater at its Wakefield Road showroom. The NUOS has been fitted to the heating system along with two Ariston solar thermal panels, while a monitoring device simultaneously records how much energy is being saved. The fully functional display is available for heating installers to study and interact with, enabling them to learn more about the technology involved.
The installation was the result of a meeting between Glyn Burns, Managing Director of Just Renewables Ltd, and Ariston at the Ecobuild 2012 exhibition. Having been impressed by the renewable technologies available, Glyn opted to have an Ariston system installed at his company’s trade showroom in South Yorkshire, as well as offer the products to his customers.
Glyn explains further: “We were looking for a small, compact product that was easy to fit indoors as part of a fully operational renewable heating system. However, there are not many units available that combine tanks and heat pumps together, so we were pleased to learn about the NUOS from Ariston. We’d consulted other manufacturers but the Ariston unit was the best all-round product available on the market. We certainly didn’t hesitate in adding the system to the renewable technologies we offer our installers.”
The whole system was installed inside two days, and Glyn was so impressed he decided he would have a NUOS installed at his home as well. This was not a difficult decision to make, as he enthuses: “The NUOS offers massive cost savings in comparison to electric immersion heaters or traditional gas boiler systems, as well as much higher levels of energy efficiency. Indeed, the statistics from the energy monitoring unit on the system in the showroom have been so impressive they’ve convinced me to get a NUOS installed in my house as well.”
