Home energy solutions since 1984
We have been involved in providing engineering solutions for the energy used in the home. This has developed from fossil fuel coal storage solutions in the early eighties and electrical heating appliances in the nineties to renewable energy technologies today.
In 2003 Igen was established as a specialized company providing heat pump solutions including a range of products, technical support/training, design, install, commission and service. With hundreds of installations completed throughout Ireland, England, Wales & Scotland we have vast experience in providing solutions that provide satisfaction to our customers.Igen takes the approach that the heat pump is a ‘component’ of the heating system in your home, much as an engine is a component of a car.
For the complete heating system to be successful in terms of efficiencies & comfort we believe that it can NOT be considered as simply a ‘plug and play’ device. The success of the overall system is dependent not only on the heat pump engine but also on the full integration of the system from building fabric, efficient heat collection of the renewable source to the transfer of heat via an efficient distribution with automatic weather influenced control.
With this approach we can provide a complete solution for our customers ensuring that all components are optimized to work together for optimum performance and comfort.
WHY CHOOSE US
Benefits of An Igen System
Eliminates CO2 emissions protects our planet for future generations
Improve energy rating of your property
Whether you’re a home owner, developer or simple want to save money on your energy bills installing a heat pump ensures that your home or building energy performance meets the requirements of current building regulations for renewable energy.
Safe & Efficient
Heat pump technology means there’s no need to have 2000 deg C flame to heat to 20 deg C. Igen heat pump systems enable the transfer of heat from where there is abundant natural heat to where there is a requirement for warmth. Compression of abundant low grade heat to a higher useable temperature means there is no need to destroy limited natural fossil resources while also eliminating dangerous emissions.
Heating buildings represents over 30% of the energy we use in our households and also on a national level where transport and industry are the other big users. By using over 70% free energy from the environment available from the sun, allows us to reduce significantly our energy bills and also our reliance on imported fuels.
Maslows hierarchy of needs implies that warmth is a basic and fundamental physiological human need. Thankfully we have developed from caveman methods of using fire to combat from cold and damp, to modern buildings and technologies which can provide us with a healthy and comfortable living space for our family.
