Underfloor Heating & Renewable Energy Specialists
Allbrite are a leading Underfloor Heating and Renewable Energy Company.
We have been supplying our unique Ribbon Mat Underfloor Heating since 2001. The system works under any type of flooring and acts as your primary heat source. The ribbon mats have flat amorphous metal heating elements that cover a much larger floor area than traditional cable underfloor heating systems - up to 200% more coverage. This means that our ribbon mat system works at much lower temperatures when compared to other underfloor heating systems - we only need to generate about 27℃ compared to more than 50℃ for a cable system. We often get asked 'is underfloor heating expensive to run?' - well because of the lower working temperatures the system is far cheaper to run than other types of underfloor heating and it will work under ANY floor type!
We aim to help you make the right decision when installing Renewable Energy Systems into your home or business. With great service and impressive experience we can advise you on which technology or technologies are best suited to your project.

Solar Electric Panels
Solar PV (or Solar Photovoltaic) systems have become more and more commonplace over the past few years – mainly due to attractive government incentives for the homeowner. The incentives are still very much available – known as the Feed in Tariff albeit it at a lower rate than they were a few years ago, but the cost of an installed solar pv system has also been much reduced therefore making the return on investment just as attractive. Also don’t forget the green credentials of generating your own electricity.
Air Source Heat Pumps
An air source heat pump absorbs energy from air outside, converting it into heat for use around your home - think of it as the opposite to how a fridge works.
Like biomass, air source heat pumps are also qualify for the ‘Renewable Heat Incentive’, the same payment scheme is applicable. An air source heat pump is ideally suited to a wet underfloor heating system and will be more efficient in a property that has high insulation values. Although the heat pump will work in less well insulated properties we would recommend increasing the size of the radiators as the pump works at a lower temperature than biomass or traditional methods of heating.
Allbrite supply and install a range of air source heat pumps from Mitsubishi Ecodan, HeatKing and Global Energy.
If you are considering a new boiler then you need to consider a biomass system. A biomass system is fuelled by either wood pellets or logs, as a fuel source they are as much as half the price of oil or LPG. Biomass fuel is known as a renewable energy source.
The government runs a ‘Renewable Heat Incentive’ that for a domestic use provides a payment plan over 7 years. The payment amount is based on the heat demand of your property and the correctly sized boiler – we can calculate your heat demand and boiler size once we have carried out a survey of your home. For business users and landlords the payment scheme is more generous – lasting 20 years.
You don't need to have a Biomass Boiler - you could consider an attractive Biomass Pellet Stove instead.
Solar Hot Water
A Solar Hot Water (also know as Solar Thermal) system will not only enable you to generate your own hot water but it is also a technology that is eligible for the government's renewable heat incentive. That means that you get guaranteed government payments for a period of 7 years. In most cases this payment should pay for the installation of a solar hot water system.
We have installed many such systems (also known as solar thermal), and because we are MCS certified installers for Solar Hot Water any system that we have installed since 15th July 2009 should be eligible for the renewable heat incentive payments - please get in touch to find out more.
Log & Multi-fuel Stoves & Cookers
Log Burning and Multi-Fuel Stoves make a great focal point in any room, not only that but they create a warm and homely atmosphere too. We supply and install log burning and multi fuel stoves, prices start at just under £500.
