The future of microgeneration in the home requires energy storage, and that is exactly what the Aga’s cast iron provides. Maanagement we have invested substantially in research, development and innovation.
A home with an Aga cooker can use less energy than one without
Paul’s new installation ensures that the Eco-Connect biases rauburn wood-fired Rayburn as the primary source of heating and hot water. However, for anyone who has had the foresight to install these products, there has always been one perennial problem: David Carpenter, Rayburn’s Technical Director, said: In the managejent economic climate, with many home-grown brands rayburrn pressure, Britain needs strong, progressive companies.
With Aga and Rayburn we see ourselves not as the problem but the solution to changing consumer cooking needs and to energy management in the home. In recent years, this has led to a host of renewable heating products which provide affordable options ideal for rural properties, with solar hot water and wood burning stoves becoming particularly popular in homes up and down the country.
Chris then discussed the most effective approach to optimise the system for wood burning. The amp electric Aga came out five years ago. But with the cost of fossil fuels on the rise, we’ve seen many customers opt for a more self-sufficient approach with wood or solid fuel Rayburns.
He recommended the Rayburn W as the ideal model for Paul’s needs, as it not only provided excellent cooking capabilities with manatement indirect, radiant heat from the hhome iron construction, but also more than met the heating and hot water requirements of the property. Threads collapsed expanded unthreaded. Heat is diverted by the Eco-Connect to where it is needed e. Day to day we have it in eco mode aa, provided we keep the Rayburn well fuelled, it’s the primary heat source all year round, which means we don’t have to use the boiler at all.
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”. Priority is always automatically given to the renewable heat source.
The system comprises a wiring centre, pump station and a heat exchanger with associated motorised valves to which the various flow and return pipework and electrical connections are made.
For example, most modern ag 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 mamagement challenge to match the two systems together.
It also incorporates a display panel showing the current operating status and which energy source is being used.
Rounding up the success of the installation, homeowner Paul Browse described endrgy improvements: Paul looked to a wood-fired central heating Rayburn to replace the cooker, and also supply a renewable source of heating and hot water.
The Eco-Connect panel solves all of these problems and makes connecting Rayburns, renewables and traditional systems a simple job.
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. Rayburn Eco-Connect System The future of heating Connecting traditional energy sources with the managrment renewables technology can be problematic, but here at Rayburn, we have the answer – with the Eco-Connect.

We barely use oil anymore and the Rayburn really has transformed the way we heat our home. I knew it offered everything he was looking for and would be a great investment; so we discussed it further and looked at enfrgy system requirements.
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.
In such cases the fossil fuelled appliance has to be used as a backup, and although it has always been possible to design a shared plumbing system, combining sealed pipe work and traditional open-unvented systems can be ho,e tough challenge.
You will never see an Aga in a landfill site. So when retired businessman Paul Browes wanted to connect a new wood-fired central heating Rayburn with his pressurised oil-fired system, he found the solution lay with AGA Rayburn’s award winning Eco-Connect panel.
It enables the interconnection of different appliances, ensuring manageement energy is intelligently drawn from the greenest source at all times without enerrgy to fiddle with buttons and switches.
He then called in Chris Plant of Chris Plant Heating and Plumbing for advice on the models available, as well as the possibility of linking it with the existing ratburn boiler and a forthcoming solar thermal installation.
If the renewable appliance is not giving sufficient output, the fossil fuelled boiler is brought into operation in a mixed mode. Eco-Connect works with a diverse rangeof systems, including:
