Energy Saving & Renewable Energy Solutions

Homeowners can reduce utility costs by making small yet effective changes to the property. Energy efficient thermal insulation, replacement windows and lighting can help to reduce your utility bills.

Renewable energy is an ever growing market with opportunities to capture and store your own electricity or heat your water. With new systems constantly coming into the marketplace, Mod Build will help you understand and choose the correct system for your home and your specific requirements.

Specialising in Solar installations, storage solutions and thermal dynamics Mod Build has a renewable energy package that is right for you.

Solar panels generally require very little maintenance since there are no moving parts. A few times a year, the panels should be inspected for any dirt or debris that may collect on them.

Solar systems are extremely reliable but like most technologies they still need to be maintained to ensure optimum performance and efficiency.

Systems that are regularly managed can be up to 30% more efficient than systems that are not actively managed. Why? Because with regular testing and inspections we are able to identify when a system is under performing and identify if repairs are required, with regular monitoring and annual visits we will ensure your system is optimized and performing to 100% of its capabilities ensuring maximum returns from your investment.

Solutions include:

  • Solar PV installations
  • Thermodynamic hot water systems
  • Smart lighting
  • Passive housing upgrades including insulation services
  • Central heating management systems.

Solar Battery Storage

With falling costs, home storage is seen as increasingly attractive in the UK, particularly to early adopters and the 850,000 homes with solar panels. Specialising in Solar installations, storage solutions and thermal dynamics Mod Build has a renewable energy package that is right for you.

Solar owners can make the electricity they generate more valuable by storing it in the battery and using it later instead of exporting it to the grid – Eaton and Nissan estimate such customers will be about £43 better off each month.

Batteries also make it easier for people to take advantage of “time of day” energy deals, which charge consumers less if they avoid periods when energy demand peaks, for example at 4-7pm on weekdays. Such tariffs are expected to proliferate as every UK home is fitted with a smart meter by the end of 2020.

Solar energy is both cheap and clean and collects a huge amount of energy in the day – more than we’d need in fact. The only issue? Once night comes and we really need electricity for light and heating, there’s no solar energy to convert to electricity. Solar battery storage solves this problem by storing energy when there’s an excess, and then releasing it when the sun is down – effectively levelling things out.

Solar battery storage uses lithium-ion batteries to store solar energy in the day to be used at night. Interestingly, Nissan have created the xStorage which also comes with solar inverters already integrated into the home battery. These inverters are bidirectional, which means, in the future, battery would be able to sell energy back to the grid, if the opportunity presented itself.

Mod Build are proud to supply a British made Thermodynamic Box

The NEW Magic Thermodynamic Box is a compact heat pump unit which can be added to almost any hot water cylinder – buffer tank.

The evaporator consists of Solar/Atmospheric collectors called thermodynamic panels, formed by a metallic panel, which is directly exposed to the sun and which acts as a heat pump circuit evaporator, collecting heat from the Sun and the environment.

For an efficient, cost effective way to harness electricity through solar power or heat your home or commercial property water using thermal dynamic technologies contact us today for your free no obligation proposal.

The Thermodynamic Box helps:

  • Reduce common ailments in central heating systems including noise and inefficient boiler performance.
  • Your central heating system work more efficiently.
  • Remove air from the central heating system, reducing air locks in the pipework and reducing the need to bleed radiators.
  • Increase the flow rate through a radiator, reducing the temperature differential of a radiator.
  • Reduce the temperature differential between the top and bottom of a radiator.

Central Heating Management Systems

On installation the flow temperature from the boiler is manually reduced to 60°C by the installer.

Retro fitting to your current central heating system the Central Heating Management System comprises of a complete set of products including the Magic Heating Box™ that ensures that there are no pinch points in the system with maximum water velocity and quantity without affecting the boiler.

The result is that the whole surface of the radiator panel is now heated and utilised to its maximum, the radiator now releases its energy in the form of additional radiant heat as well as convected heat, optimising the system.

The boiler return temperature is given the opportunity to return under 57°C (gas dew point) which helps the boiler remain in condensing mode and attain greater efficiency and lower running costs.
