Solar PV Farm to be installed at Cardiff Airport

November 8, 2019
A joint agreement with Cardiff Airport and a local renewable energy developer will see the installation of a brand new Solar PV Farm on the airport site in the near future. The construction of the 2MW solar site is set to be completed within the next 18 months by Bridgend-based company Cenin Renewables, who have successfully delivered notable renewable energy projects across key sites in South Wales. The Solar PV Farm at Cardiff Airport will sit within the boundary of the site and will supply the business with electricity via a private wire, with any surplus energy being exported to the national grid. It is anticipated that the new Solar PV Farm will deliver a carbon reduction of some 20,508 tonnes over the next 25 years, a saving of approximately 860 tonnes every year. This project is the next step in Cardiff Airport’s recently unveiled its Environmental Flight Path – a timeline of immediate and short term environmental goals. These milestones will be delivered in line with the organisation’s vision to become a ‘Carbon neutral Airport’ and is a key consideration for the Airport’s Masterplan development over the next two decades. Mark Bailey, Director of Airport Planning and Development at Cardiff Airport, commented: “After a huge amount of careful planning and consideration, it is hugely exciting to see this project come to life. “We’re proud to be working in partnership with a Welsh business who bring with them expert knowledge and a wealth of experience needed to develop this project on our site. When it’s complete it will deliver massive carbon reductions and power the Airport.” In addition to its renewable energy and carbon reduction benefits, the Solar PV farm will create a welcoming, natural environment for biodiversity including bees and some species of wild flowers. Martyn Popham, Director at Cenin Renewables, added: “Cenin Renewables is delighted to have been chosen to work with Cardiff Airport to help them achieve an important part of their comprehensive plan to decarbonise the airport operation.” About the Cardiff Airport Environmental Flight Path Cardiff Airport’s Environmental Flight Path has been developed with the support of Cardiff Airport’s Board, Welsh Government, the Airport Operators’ Association and WSP consultancy. It is a framework developed to track environmental and sustainability successes that have already been achieved, whilst setting our immediate and short term goals. These include: Sourcing 100% of our power supply from renewable and clean energy sources – delivered in October 2019   Signing the Healthy Travel Charter – an initiative where we will commit to supporting and encouraging our team and customers to travel in a sustainable way to and from the Airport – delivered in October 2019   Introducing electric vehicle charge points across our car parks – November 2019   Renewing our recycling operations – November 2019   Installing smart meters across the site to closely monitor energy consumption – January 2020   Updating Cardiff Airport’s Climate Change Adaptation Report – March 2020   Continuing to work with all partners to further the

Is it time to get your stove ready for winter?

September 30, 2019
During the scorching months of the Great British Summer…. ok maybe just in warmer times, the chances are you didn’t use your stove, keeping it dormant and log free. Now that the kids are back to school and the chances of an Indian summer are fading by the day, you have probably started to think about cosy nights in front of the fire. This means getting your stove ready and back in action. Winter is coming Similar to your car’s MOT, it’s necessary to pay your stove the attention it deserves, make repairs to ensure it is running at its most efficient. Autumn is the perfect time to do this, and it’s very important to rectify any problems before the cold weather sets in and the strains and pressures of regular and heavy use are put upon the stove. If being a good cub scout taught us anything it was the importance of being prepared and being stuck in the throes of a horrifically icy winter only to find you stove has broken down is not good at all. So in preparation for the winter and to avoid the unthinkable we have put together this handy list to help get you stove ready for the winter.  Get your stove ready fore the cold weather: Clean out the ash-pan. We recommend you use a dedicated ash vacuum cleaner to save your domestic vacuum from becoming blocked from the fine ash particles, or use a secure ash caddie to stop spillages. Check all air-holes are clear and free from any debris build up. These help get vital oxygen to your fire and make it as efficient as possible. Give your glass a clean with a dedicated stove glass cleaner to get the best results. Not only does this remove the build-up of dangerous creosote, it lets you see the beautiful roaring fire you’ve created. Check your stove rope around the seals of your stove doors and replace at the first sign of damage. To do this, chalk the rope with the door open and then shut it. When you open it again, look to see the line made by the chalk on the stove, where the rope should be touching. If any gaps are spotted, then you need to replace the rope. Check your firebricks and look for any damage. These reflect the heat back at the fire, protecting the body of the stove and improving efficiency. Remove any flammable objects from the area around your stove. Sounds obvious but you’d be surprised what people put on top of (or even in) their stoves when they’re not in use. Similarly, with Halloween coming up, check any decorations hanging nearby aren’t too close to your stove. Test your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. It is absolutely imperative that you make sure these work. Get your chimney cleaned by a reputable chimney sweep. Creosote builds up in chimneys over time and birds have a tendency to build nests or fall down them. Start to

Essential Guide to Fireplaces – By Stovax /Gazco

September 30, 2019
Essential Guide to Fireplaces – By Stovax /Gazco For many, stoking up the woodburner or switching on the gas fire was an optional extra – a way of adding an ambient focal point when the family came to visit or making the home cosy on those wintry and grey days. Not so now. Today, the function of a fire or stove in a typical British home is one vital to creating warmth and atmosphere; an essential component of a heating system from which we demand not only high performance and efficiency but cost effectiveness and quality design. Today’s home maker wants top results for their money.   Step forward modern wood burning, gas and electric fireplaces, equipped with the latest technology and stunning aesthetics to satisfy a range of tastes from the traditional to the contemporary; country inspired or urban chic. If you are considering a fireplace or would like to upgrade your current appliance, this article will act as an introduction to the many options available to you.   First Steps… Wood, Gas or Electric?   One of the first things to deduce before you consider design is: ‘what type of fuel can I burn?’ If your property has a chimney breast, you will most likely be able to install a wood burning fire, a stove or a conventional flue gas fire but before you embark on either, ensure that the chimney is checked thoroughly by a qualified professional for safety and suitability. For those modern homes without a chimney – about one third of the UK’s housing stock does not have a built-in chimney, there are other options to suit your needs. Installing a balanced flue system in your property ensures you can burn gas fires efficiently. Otherwise, if you have a plentiful supply of wood, fitting a twin-wall pipe system can enable you to enjoy the flames of a real log fire in your home. Whatever flue outlet you have available, there are numerous models of fires and stoves to choose from.   The Benefits of Wood Burning An increasing number of people want to make a difference to their carbon footprint and burning wood in a modern stove is a carbon lean way to create heat for the home especially if you have purchased your fuel from a local and well managed supply. With wood fuel competitively priced, or even cost-free to those who have their own coppice, this option is an extremely effective way to save money! But a very big draw to wood burning is the stunning focal point it naturally creates and the, possibly unparalleled homely ambience it produces in abundance. That distinctive, comforting smell is for many the scent that captures the imagination and conjures the very concept of cosiness and being at home. For optimum results, we recommend logs should be seasoned for two years or more to achieve a moisture content below 20%. This will not only give twice the output of freshly felled timber but help avoid a build-up of

This will create space in your covered wood pile and allow you to prepare even more wood. Use a stove thermometer. Installing  a stovepipe thermometer helps you to monitor flue temperatures and adjust burning practices as needed Never leave a fire unattended. ALWAYS extinguish  before leaving the house or going to bed. There were 4221 chimney fires in #England (April 2016-March 2017).

Do I need a heating engineer or a plumber?

June 26, 2017
  What would you do if your boiler breaks down? Who would you call? A heating engineer or a plumber? We get phone calls all the time from worried customers form across south Wales with faulty boilers who are unsure whether they have called the right person. It’s fair to say that the lines between a heating engineer and a plumber can be blurred and when the pressure is on to stop a leak from a boiler or restore heat to you house, knowing which one to call can make all the difference. Your boiler uses a lot of water pipes and is plumbed into the mains, so should you call a plumber to repair your boiler? The answer to this question is …. No. Here’s the difference between the two. Heating Engineer The clue is in the name! A heating engineer will work solely on heating in domestic and commercial properties rather than working across the broader industry, making them specialists in heating and gas work. They carry out a wide range of jobs from maintaining and installing heating pipework to fixing appliances when they break down. For this reason, you may prefer to contact a heating engineer rather than a plumber, as they may be more familiar with your issue. You should still ensure that your heating engineer is Gas Safe registered before allowing them to work on your boiler. Plumbers We feel the confusion has come from plumbers, as their trade can cover a multitude of tasks when it comes to bathrooms, kitchens, wet pipes, dry pipes, boiler maintenance or servicing and heating systems. While many plumbers do possess a number of plumbing skills and qualifications, they are not essential in order for them to trade as a plumber, meaning that anyone can refer to themselves as a plumber without any formal certifications. Although they may be experts in their field and highly recommended, they may not be Gas Safe registered and therefore can not work on your boiler. Some plumbers are also Gas Safe registered, however this should not be expected as standard. If you find a plumber who is also offering gas central heating services, check the Gas Safe register to make sure that they are legally permitted to work with gas. Gas Safe Register A boiler repair or service involves working with gas, so only a Gas Safe registered engineer can legally work on a gas boiler. The gas industry is highly regulated to ensure that relevant services are provided to the highest safety standards, so if your repair is to a boiler or other gas appliance, you must make sure that you contact a Gas Safe engineer. Luckily Limgreen has everything you need right here, with just one phone call and a few simple questions we can have the right person on the job. Boiler Check list. Check your gas supply – are your other appliances working? Is the emergency control valve open? If none of your appliances are working, then call your

Boiler Cover Vs New Boiler

May 19, 2017
Winter is over and you have managed to make it through without any major problems. However, those little faults that have started to appear are only going to get worse. So what do you do? Is it worth buying boiler cover to ensure you stay warm whatever the weather? Boiler cover will give you access to engineers who can repair your heating in an emergency. This usually includes an annual service too, but how do you know the problem isn’t going to come back. Or on the flip side, do you consider investing in a new boiler? The first thing to ask yourself is how old is your boiler? If your boiler is old, getting insurance doesn’t really make sense, you will probably struggle to get a policy that is cost-effective and may not even get cover at all. Providers tend to cap the age of boilers they will insure at 15 years, sometimes even lower. In most instances the average cover would cost around £20 a month which will give you peace of mind, but is this cover worth it? The answer is No. Most of those who opt for cover will never have to claim, they end up spending more on the cover than getting a brand NEW boiler fitted would cost and a new one means you’re automatically covered by the new warranty or guarantee. Not only will you save on the cost of repairs and insurance with a warranty but modern boilers are far more energy-efficient. Upgrading from a G-rated to an A-rated boiler will save around £340 a year! What’s more, Limegreen are a Worcester Bosch Accredited installer which means we can offer the full 10 years guarantee on all parts and labour should anything go wrong with your boiler. This is effectively what you get with your boiler insurance, but with the added bonus of having an A-rated energy efficient new boiler, giving you even more savings a year.
