BHESCo are very excited to once again be partnering with our friends from Alistair Fleming Design to install a cutting-edge SunAmp heating system for their brand new showroom in Lewes.

In 2017 BHESCo teamed up with Alistair Fleming to design a low cost, low carbon heating solution for their large workshop facility which had previously relied on a wood burning system.

Following extensive planning and research we installed an air conditioning system which can be used to heat the warehouse in winter as well as cooling it in summer. The system is part-powered by a 28kW solar PV system, which delivers major benefits to the environment as well as significantly reducing the energy costs for the business.

Alistair Fleming are now expanding their business by opening a brand new showroom on the Cliffe High Street and have comissioned BHESCo to design a low carbon heating system for the property.

The Showroom

Project Delivery

As with all of our projects, BHESCo conducted an exhaustive survey of the property to identify the most efficient heating solution that would offer the best value for money.

This was especially challenging for this project as the new showroom is located in the heart of one of Lewes’s most famous conservation areas.

Following consultation with Alistair Fleming and with our projects partners at A Greener Alternative, BHESCo recommended installing a 12kW cutting edge space-heating technology offered by SunAmp Thermal Energy Storage Solutions.

SunAmp Thermal Heating

The SunAmp system is made in Scotland and is a new super-compact electric heating technology that works especially well in combination with solar panels, which we hope to install on the property soon.

It can deliver highly responsive space heating with superb efficiency and proven savings of up to 75% on utility bills.

SunAmp Heat Batteries help solve numerous problems by storing energy as heat and releasing it when and where it is needed. This is achieved at lower cost and higher efficiency than competing technologies (e.g. electrical batteries, hydrogen electrolysis or fuel cells) and is a totally new way of storing energy.

It looks like the batteries are huge and will require a lot of space so not possible for smaller dwellings?

    Hi Lyn, thanks for your question. The energy storage batteries that can be installed from the likes of Tesla, Powervault or Moixa are typically about 100cm x 75cm, so slightly larger than a boiler, or about the size of an electric immersion heater.
