Here is the story of the home-making products of timeless themes – of economy, efficiency As energy costs and independence have become major issues once more AGA has again put together managing director of AGA Heat. He asked. With Aga and Rayburn we see ourselves not as the problem but the solution to changing consumer cooking needs and to energy management. costs, and continue to do so.

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.

So when retired businessman Paul Browes wanted to connect a raybyrn 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. In addition we have developed biofuel and carbon-neutral wood-burning Rayburn models and have seen sales of these rise significantly. We recognised some years ago that Aga had to move in step with the 21st century and we had to address environmental issues.

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.

Priority is always automatically given to the renewable heat source. The amp electric Aga came out five years ago.

manwgement However, for raybirn who has had the foresight to install these products, there has always been one perennial problem: If the renewable appliance is not giving sufficient output, the fossil fuelled boiler is brought into operation in a mixed mode. We actively encourage owners with old coal models to upgrade to the newer, more efficient models.

Show managejent 25 50 All. 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. It enables the interconnection of different appliances, ensuring that energy is intelligently drawn from the greenest source at all times without having to fiddle with buttons and switches. We barely use oil anymore and the Rayburn really has transformed the way we heat our home.


You will never see an Aga in a landfill site. He said that it would be “stupid to claim that environmentalism is never informed by class” and implies Agas are only for the middle classes and have a much higher fuel consumption than patio heaters.

As a result an Rayubrn or Rayburn home can use less energy per month than a comparable home.

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.

Paul looked to a wood-fired central heating Rayburn agw replace the cooker, and also supply a renewable source of heating and hot water. Order by newest oldest recommendations. Threads collapsed expanded unthreaded. 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.

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

Rayburn | Eco-Conntect Panel | Home Energy Management | Case Studies

Obviously, being able to link these products to an existing central heating system, raburn even include solar and wood burning stoves, is a great option and that’s managemfnt we developed the Eco-Connect panel. It also incorporates a display panel showing the current operating status and which energy source is being used.

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.


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 oil boiler and a forthcoming solar thermal installation.

Although it was only used for cooking, it was guzzling over litres of oil per month with no way to reduce the consumption. Monbiot claims that “a large Aga running on coal turns out nine tonnes of carbon dioxide per year”. Although it has always been possible to design a shared plumbing system, there have always been inherent problems managemsnt devices available to help heating engineers.

Paul’s new installation ensures manwgement the Eco-Connect biases the wood-fired Rayburn as the primary source of heating and hot water. Loading comments… Trouble loading?

Rayburn information Rayburn ROI: This is particularly useful for installations with solar thermal, so in Paul’s case, he incorporated a triple coil mabagement with a view to installing solar thermal panels in the near future. Connecting traditional energy sources with the latest renewables technology can be problematic, but here at Rayburn, we have the answer – with the Eco-Connect. And with the Eco-Connect panel already pre-set with operating modes; I haven’t really had to think about it since.

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 a tough challenge.

This yome is as outdated as the notion that only the poor live close to factories and opencast mining, as he goes on to claim. All in all we couldn’t be happier. Click here to see some comments from one of our Rayburn Eco-Connect owners.
