Self-Building and Renovation | Abode Heat - The home of renewable heat

You may already have a good idea of what you want as your project is well advanced, or maybe you are at the design and planning stage and just don’t know where to start. We provide a free initial telephone consultation to understand your current situation and what you want to achieve. Please upload your plans via the contact form below.

How much heat do you need?

We complete a detailed a Heat Loss Calculation and Renewable Heating Report. This provides you with an independent specification of how much heat and hot water you need and recommended solutions. With new build and renovations, space heating demand is reducing and hot water consumption is increasing. Don’t waste your project budget to produce heat you don’t need.

Now you have the information you need to confidently manage your project budget and invest in the right system for your long term heating needs.

Solution Design

We provide air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps and heat battery storage, together with underfloor heating and radiators or direct electric heaters to provide all of your heating and hot water needs.

Reduce your heating costs even further, by integrating solar PV panels and battery storage to your system.

Installation & Commissioning

We provide a full mechanical and electrical installation service with our local teams.

If you have your own skills or trades to provide these services, we will adjust our scope to save you money.

Location and Experience

We have design and installation teams in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset, ready to work with you on your project. Please upload your plans via the contact form below.

We’ve designed and delivered many projects over the years. These range from small timber frame houses and barn conversions to large “Grand Design” new builds, renovations and extensions.

Heat Loss Calculation and Design

For a Heat Loss Calculation our consultants will take you through the process of our detailed survey, also providing system design if this would be of interest as a follow up for your project. 

The report you will receive from a consultation enables you to make informed decisions, balancing the right technical solution and energy savings, with site practicalities and the cost of installing a new heating system.

As a part of this we will of course provide you with recommended solutions that we can help design, supply and install as an accredited renewable energy business by the Renewable Energy Consumer Code, Microgeneration Certification scheme and the NIC.

Please see an example heat loss calculation below:
