About Us

Solwat aims to provide practical cost-effective solutions to water and air hygiene problems; leading to safe, efficient, low maintenance systems.
When systems are correctly assessed and set up, the long-term maintenance costs reduce and confidence in the system increases.

We can provide effective, yet cost-conscious programmes suited to the specific requirements of each system, plus undertake any remedial work that may be required.

At Solwat, our range of ME services enables us to dovetail efficiently with any Facilities Management company and/or Quantity Surveyor, to manage the water and air services effectively.

Risk Assessment

It is now a statutory requirement for any business to have a water risk assessment and to have on-site a statement showing that the water system is being correctly managed. Our qualified Assessors can assist our customers in meeting and maintaining statutory compliance.

Remedial Work

Like any other installation, it is common for water systems to require some remedial work and ongoing maintenance. This falls within Solwat’s Scope of general works.

Solwat is committed to providing environmentally friendly energy solutions and can now also advise, supply and maintain solar energy systems and air source heat pumps.


Microgeneration Standard

Established and managed by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (DEIS) to ensure renewable products are tested, installed and commissioned to a recognised benchmark standard.

Typically Building Control and organisations such as NHBC require renewable installations to be MCS certified. It is also a pre-requisite that a renewable installation is MCS certified prior to making an application for payment from one of the Government-funded incentive.

Solwat renewable energy frequently asked questions

How much of my house can a Heat Pump actually heat?
Heat pumps come in various sizes and are typically sized to heat ALL of your house and ALL of your hot water.
Do I still need other heating systems to support my heat pumps on very cold days?
No, heat pumps are designed to work with outside air temperatures as low as -20C; one of the most popular places where heat pumps are used is Norway and Sweden.
How much does it cost to run a heat pump?
Heat pumps are typically cheaper to run than a gas boiler, and usually significantly cheaper than oil, LPG or Electric heating. This is because of their high efficiency of between 250% to 400%.
Will I still have plenty of hot water/power showers?
Your hot water requirements for showers or anything else will depend more on selecting the right size of hot water cylinder to ensure there is sufficient volume of water available.
Are heat pumps noisy?
No more than a fridge. They have sound levels of typically 45dB to 55dB, which means that even a unit located under the window sill of a modern house with the window closed, is unlikely to be heard by the occupants.
How reliable are heat pumps?
They are based on the same technology that runs fridges and air conditioning units which typically means you can expect them to work for 20 – 25yrs with little maintenance requirements.
What is the guarantee on heat pumps?
Typically 3 years, but in some cases this can be 5 years with an option to extend to 7 years.
How do I get a grant or payment for using renewables?
You need to buy an MCS approved renewable product – you can view a list on the MCS website, and have the product installed by an accredited MCS installer. Once completed the installer will register your installation with MCS and obtain an MCS certificate which they will pass to you. With this certificate, plus a valid EPC you can apply online for your incentive payments.
