Over time we have facilitated eligibility for our customers for the Renewable Heat Premium Payment Scheme, Renewable Heat Incentive, Green Homes Grant and the Boiler Upgrade Scheme.

With the government’s targets for net zero carbon by 2050, renewable technologies will become increasingly prominent in both the commercial and domestic sector as highlighted by a ban on fossil fuel heating systems in new build homes from 2025.

The Fuel Effect has worked on a wide range of projects in the energy sector and here we are providing some more details on the work that we have done.

Our Home Owners Say

We knew a heat pump was the way to go having seen them in action and carried out a lot of research. What we needed was a firm that knew the product hands on and not a double glazing type sale. Peter and his team have an in depth knowledge of the product and talk about it in layman’s language. They were very efficient with their installation and attention to detail and O.K. so our field looked like a scene from “The battle of the Somme” for a couple of weeks but a year later you wouldn’t know anything had happened. He has also installed a P.V. system to provide our own electricity. Our energy bills have dropped through the floor.

Mr Bishop

Having decided that a heat pump would be a serious option for our cottage restoration/extension we sought advice and quotations from several firms at a Building Exhibition. Dissatisfied with these, an Internet search led us to Peter Wickens of The Fuel Effect. The contrast could not have been more marked. Peter clearly has an excellent understanding of the technical issues and gives first rate advice – what he is not, is a salesman out to make a quick sale! We are very happy with the end-result and rate The Fuel Effect excellent for both customer service and value for money!

Roger J

We had two Air Source Heat Pumps installed by The Fuel Effect in 2009, at the time we received good technical and practical advice that led to a cost effective and practical system that has saved us money since that time. They have been maintained the system every year since then and have kept us warm through the recent harsh winters. Recently they have also installed a 4KW Photovoltaic system for us which is now greatly offsetting the running costs of the heat pumps and our bills are now lower than ever. All of the work has been carried out in a professional manner and I would not hesitate to recommend them to friends and colleagues.

I had a Daikin Altherma High Temperature Air Source Heat Pump System installed by The Fuel Effect. in January 2012. It fully replaced our old oil boiler system, including hot water provision, whilst completely utilising our existing radiator system. The installation went smoothly, only 4 days on site, and was completed at a very competitive price. The weather turned very cold in early February and this system kept our house warmer than ever at considerably lower cost.

Steve Godfrey

You installed an air source heat pump for us recently and I wanted to write and tell you how delighted we are with every aspect of the process and the result.

This is our third major renovation in recent years and it would be virtually impossible to imagine a way in which your service could have been better: efficient, prompt, courteous, knowledgeable, reliable and trustworthy. We could not have wished for more.

The installation itself was very competitively priced, undertaken with maximum efficiency and minimum fuss, and the excellent results have completely transformed our property into a warm and welcoming family home.
