As a result an Aga or Rayburn home can use less energy per month than a comparable home. So, for homeowners looking to incorporate renewables into their properties, but still want the reliability and backup of a traditional heating system, the Eco-Connect from Rayburn is the perfect solution.

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. After 35 years in the trade, Chris – who is a Rayburn Guild member and runs his business in Framlingham, Suffolk – has plenty of experience installing central heating range cookers. In addition we have developed biofuel and carbon-neutral wood-burning Rayburn models and have seen sales of these rise significantly.

Connecting traditional energy sources with the latest renewables technology can be problematic, but here at Rayburn, we have the answer – with the Eco-Connect.

Instead of continuing on with the inefficient cooker, he set out to limit his reliance on fossil fuels and embrace a more sustainable way to heat his home. Householders also want to get maximum benefit from using renewable energy, so the system needs to be controlled automatically where preference is given to drawing from the renewable source, rather than the fossil fuel.

Integrating existing heating and hot water systems with renewables can often be problematic. Eco-Connect works with a diverse rangeof systems, including: However, if the homeowner has selected one of the ‘eco’ options, the boiler will not automatically fire.

It also incorporates a display panel showing the current operating status and which energy source is being used – e. The Eco-Connect panel solves all of these problems and makes connecting Rayburns, renewables and traditional systems a simple job.

Endrgy it was only used for cooking, it was guzzling over litres of oil per month with no way to reduce the consumption.


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: Rayburn information Rayburn ROI: 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”.

The future of microgeneration in the home requires energy storage, and that is exactly what the Aga’s cast iron provides. For example, most modern automatic 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 tough challenge to match the two systems together.

Once completed, he expects this to sufficiently produce enough DHW for the property without needing the oil boiler at all.

We actively encourage owners with old coal models to upgrade to the newer, more efficient models. His comments caricature the Aga of over a generation ago and overlook the many skilled workers at two factories in England who benefit from Aga production and its associated brands.

Paul’s new installation ensures that the Eco-Connect biases the wood-fired Rayburn as the rayburh source of heating and hot water.

Thermistors are used in conjunction with an intelligent control panel to sense the water temperature of the flow and return pipes and domestic hot water DHW cylinder. Click here to see some comments from one of our Rayburn Eco-Connect owners. Surely we don’t need a “class war” but a spirit of solidarity. The whole industrial revolution started in our foundry inwith the smelting of iron ore with coke to make cast iron cooking pots. For occasions when additional heat or hot water are required, the device automatically engages the back-up boiler by either blending the managment, or using it as the sole source if the Rayburn is not in use.

G eorge Raynurn class war attack on the thousands of Aga owners across the country is a period piece This is indeed a class war, and the campaign against the Aga starts here, 13 January. Therefore we have invested substantially in research, development and innovation. Chris then discussed the most effective approach to optimise the system for wood burning. For British households, there has been no escaping the ever increasing cost of heating our homes, especially for properties that are off the gas grid and reliant on fossil fuels.


Monbiot claims that “a large Aga running on coal turns out nine tonnes of carbon dioxide per year”. Raybur then called in Energj Plant of Chris Plant Heating and Plumbing for advice on the models available, as well as the possibility of linking it with the existing oil boiler and a forthcoming solar thermal installation.

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. In the current economic climate, with many home-grown brands under pressure, Britain rajburn strong, progressive companies.

A home with an Aga cooker can use less energy than one without

Heat is diverted by the Eco-Connect to where it is needed e. 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, raburn sealed pipe work and traditional open-unvented systems can be a tough challenge.

I knew it offered everything he was looking for and would xga a great investment; so we discussed it further and looked at the system requirements.

We barely use oil anymore and the Rayburn really has transformed the way we heat our home. We admit that was the case in the s when Agas were sold on their efficiency, but no coal Agas have been produced for 10 years and there are probably only a few hundred British customers with those splendid, venerable coal-burning Agas working today.

Although it has always been possible to design a shared plumbing system, there have always been inherent problems with devices available to help heating engineers. In recent years, this has led to a host of hoe heating manayement which provide affordable options ideal for rural properties, with solar hot water and wood burning stoves becoming particularly popular wga homes up and down the country. And with the Eco-Connect panel already pre-set with operating modes; I haven’t really had to think about it since.

The world has moved on and so have we.

This is particularly useful for installations with solar thermal, so in Paul’s case, he incorporated a triple coil cylinder with a view raayburn installing solar thermal panels in the near future. Rounding up the success of the installation, homeowner Paul Browse described the improvements:
