Rayburn Eco-Connect System The future of heating Connecting traditional energy sources with the latest renewables technology can be problematic, but here at Rayburn, we have the answer – with the Eco-Connect. It also incorporates a energu panel showing the managmeent operating status and which energy source is being used.

In essence, hot water is diverted by the Eco-Connect to where it is needed. Connecting traditional energy sources with the latest renewables technology can be problematic, but here at Rayburn, we have the answer – with the Eco-Connect. But with the cost of fossil fuels on the rise, we’ve seen many customers opt for a more nanagement approach with wood or solid fuel Rayburns. Chris then discussed the most effective approach to optimise the system for wood burning. Loading comments… Trouble loading?

Monbiot claims that “a large Aga running on manageent turns out nine tonnes of carbon dioxide per year”. Show 25 25 50 All. And if the renewable appliance e. Although it was only used for cooking, it was guzzling over litres of oil per month with no way to reduce the consumption.

Threads collapsed expanded unthreaded. Once completed, he expects this to sufficiently produce enough DHW for the property without needing the oil boiler at all. With Aga and Rayburn we see ourselves not as managemennt problem but the solution to changing consumer cooking needs and to energy management in the home.

You will never see an Aga in a landfill site. Homeowner Paul Browes, who lives in a 16th century farmhouse in Witnesham, Suffolk, was in for a surprise when he calculated the annual oil costs of his ageing range cooker. Monbiot argues that “climate change allows the richest on earth to trash the lives of the poorest” and claims that his campaign against Agas “will divide rich greens down the middle”.

Integrating existing heating and hot water systems with renewables can often be problematic. For example, most modern automatic boilers are designed to operate with sealed pipework systems, but solid-fuel and wood appliances generally utilise a traditional open-vented system – making it quite a tough challenge to match the two systems together. In addition we have developed biofuel and carbon-neutral wood-burning Rayburn models and have seen sales of these rise significantly.

I knew it offered everything he was looking for and would be a great investment; so we discussed it further and looked at the system requirements. As a result an Aga or Rayburn home can use less energy per month than a comparable home. In general, it is not always convenient to rely entirely on renewables energy, as quite often it can be insufficient when meeting the total heating and hot water demands of the owner’s lifestyle.

If the renewable appliance is not giving sufficient output, the fossil fuelled boiler is brought into operation in a mixed mode. His comments caricature the Aga of over a generation ago and overlook the many skilled workers at two factories in England who benefit from Aga production and its associated brands.

Agas last indefinitely and can themselves be recycled.

We admit that was the case in the s when Agas were sold on their efficiency, but no coal Agas have been produced for 10 years and there are probably only a few hundred British customers with those splendid, venerable coal-burning Agas working today. Order by newest oldest recommendations.

The future of microgeneration in the home requires energy storage, and that is exactly what the Aga’s cast iron provides. Paul looked to a wood-fired central heating Rayburn to replace the cooker, and also supply a renewable source of heating and hot water.


This is particularly useful for installations with solar thermal, so in Paul’s case, he incorporated a triple coil cylinder with a view to installing solar thermal panels in the near future. The amp electric Aga came out five years ago.

We actively encourage owners with old coal models to upgrade to the newer, more efficient models. David Carpenter, Rayburn’s Technical Director, said: The whole industrial revolution started in our foundry inwith the smelting of iron ore with coke to make cast iron cooking pots.

Thermistors are used in conjunction with an intelligent control panel to sense the water temperature of the flow and return pipes and domestic hot water DHW cylinder.

So, for homeowners looking to incorporate renewables into their properties, but still want the reliability and backup of a traditional heating system, the Eco-Connect from Rayburn is the perfect solution. In the current economic climate, with many home-grown brands under pressure, Britain needs strong, progressive companies.

He said that it would be “stupid to claim that environmentalism is never informed by class” and implies Agas are only for the middle classes and have a much higher fuel consumption than patio heaters. Although it has always been possible to design a shared plumbing system, there have always been inherent problems with devices available to help heating engineers.

The Eco-Connect panel solves all of these problems and makes connecting Rayburns, renewables and traditional systems a simple job. Therefore we have invested substantially in research, development and innovation. Rounding up the success of the installation, homeowner Paul Browse described the improvements:
