Benefits of renewable energy heating systems for homes and businesses

As the topic of climate change becomes more mainstream, you might be considering the practical and feasible ways that you can reduce your carbon footprint. Renewable energy heating systems are one of the most reliable, cost-effective and energy-efficient ways for any home or business to do this.

Home owners

Many home owners or landlords like the idea of eco heating systems, but lack knowledge or are cautious about the cost. Fortunately, due to companies like Vien Systems, renewable heating systems are easy to source and have installed. Also, they can really reduce your fuel bills over the long term.

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

The RHI is one of the main reasons that renewable heating systems are financially attractive to home owners. A government-backed scheme, it offers quarterly cash payments to property owners generating heat from renewable energy, over a maximum 7 year period. This includes all of the technologies offered at Vien Systems, including biomass boilers, air and ground source heat pumps and solar thermal energy.

Good for business

If you own a commercial enterprise, you can benefit from improving your Green credentials. These days, many consumers are favouring businesses that can prove they are environmentally friendly. By advertising the fact that you are using renewable energy, you have an advantage over those who don’t.

Similar to the above, being environmentally friendly can also help you win business or contracts from other businesses or the Public Sector. Many organisations, as part of their own environmental accreditation, are actively choosing to use other Green companies in their supply chain. Using renewable and sustainable energy – as part of a suite of Green initiatives and behaviours – can genuinely give a business the edge.

A third business benefit is that you can attract the very best, socially and environmentally aware, talent to your company. For many of the younger generation, there is a genuine desire to work for more environmentally-conscious organisations.

So, whether you’re a home owner, landlord or business owner/manager, renewable energy heating systems definitely deliver a lot of tangible benefits. Call Vien Systems to see how we can help you move into a greener, cleaner world.
