Packaged Plant Rooms – A new paradigm for site safety

Adveco discusses how off-site construction techniques for commercial heating and hot water can alleviate pressures of cost and timescale on construction sites whilst also helping improve Covid-19 safety precautions… There is no doubt that we are going to face long term changes in the way construction projects operate during and in the wake of the …

The Cogeneration Gap – Part 3 Caring for the Environment

We have considered the reasons for implementing m-CHP in new builds and upgrading care homes. In this third and final blog in the series, we consider one last deciding factor, the environmental impact of local cogeneration… The carbon savings have long been an advantage of Combined Heat and Power (CHP), and can still be achieved, …

CHP for residential care homes.

The Cogeneration Gap – Part 1

Often seen as an ideal application within the residential care home, in this short blog series Adveco discusses the argument for onsite energy cogeneration, the operational costs, the environmental impact and highlights the increasing performance gap between ‘dirty CHP’ and the latest generation of highly efficient micro-CHP… Whether building a new residential care home or …

Sustainable Energy For The Leisure Industry – Part 2

In part 1 we discussed the importance of understanding how hot water, heating and power demands can be cost-effectively brought into balance, and why hybrid systems are key to achieving long-term sustainability… As well as being able to be cost-effectively controlled, a hybrid system can also be optimised for CO₂ emissions by selecting the optimal …

Sustainable Energy For The Leisure Industry – Part 1

From hotel accommodation to restaurant kitchens, spas and swimming pools, leisure estates generate a wide range of electrical and heating demands. In terms of usage patterns, demands can be significant, often varied, but also constant, creating a complex range of challenging applications. Currently, around 40% of UK greenhouse gas emissions are accounted for by heating, …

Solar Thermal – Proven Route To Sustainability

Solar thermal represents a vital component for addressing sustainability within commercial organisations. Obviously, solar thermal systems are most productive in the summer months, when there is most sunlight, so this does result in the additional need for non-renewable energy sources during the winter months. Despite this, sustainability is more than achievable, and Adveco will design …

Adveco Covid 19 update – Engineering Site Visits

The provision of heating and especially hot water within hospitals and residential care facilities, supermarkets and those supporting key workers, such as schools, is being actively prioritised for support by Adveco. An important aspect of that work is the provision of site-based engineering services for emergency call outs, ensuring priority customers have a reliable supply …

Reduce Carbon with Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP)

Reducing Carbon with Air Source Heat Pumps

It is estimated that 40% of CO₂ emissions can come from commercial heating alone and finding new and innovative ways to heat premises is at the top of the list for many businesses. Commercial sites – education, healthcare, retail, logistics, offices, hospitality and leisure – seeking to reduce both their carbon footprint and energy bills …

Micro-CHP and The Urban Balancing Act

Adveco’s Technical Director, Bill Sinclair, discusses balancing concerns over the cost to health from NOX emissions with the advantages of using micro-CHP in urban commercial building projects. A by-product of the combustion of hydrocarbon fuels, Nitrogen Oxides (NOX) are a major contributing factor to poor air quality, the most toxicologically significant being a combination of …
