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. The launch of both the AGA Dual Control and Total Control cookers . AGA Rayburn’s home energy management products are fully .

It also incorporates a display panel manaement the current operating status and which energy source is being used – e. Heat is diverted by the Eco-Connect to where it is needed e.
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. In addition we have developed biofuel and carbon-neutral wood-burning Rayburn models and have seen sales of these rise significantly.
Priority is always automatically given to the renewable heat source. Ebergy world has moved on and so have we.
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.
Connecting traditional energy sources with the latest renewables technology can be problematic, but here hlme Rayburn, we have the answer – with the Eco-Connect.
For occasions when additional heat or hot water are required, the device automatically engages the back-up boiler by either blending the two, or using it as the sole source if the Rayburn is not in use. 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.
We actively encourage owners with old coal models to upgrade to the newer, more efficient models. 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.
We recognised some years ago that Aga had to move in step with the 21st century and we had to address environmental issues. Eayburn the current economic climate, with many home-grown brands under pressure, Britain needs strong, progressive companies.
However, for anyone who has had the foresight to install these products, there has always been one perennial problem: Order by newest oldest recommendations. Loading comments… Trouble loading? Therefore we have invested substantially in research, development and innovation. 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.
All in all we couldn’t be happier.
However, if the homeowner has selected one of the ‘eco’ options, the boiler will not automatically fire. He recommended the Rayburn W as the ideal model for Paul’s needs, as it not only provided excellent cooking capabilities with the indirect, radiant heat from the cast iron construction, but also more than met the heating and hot water requirements of the property.
He said that it would be “stupid to claim that environmentalism is never informed by class” and implies Agas are only for enetgy middle classes and have a much higher fuel consumption than patio heaters. 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. Day to day we have it in eco mode and, 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.
And with the Eco-Connect panel already pre-set with operating modes; I haven’t really had to think about it since. 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 manageemnt and switches. Obviously, being hlme to link these products to an existing central heating system, or even include solar and wood burning stoves, is a great option and that’s why we developed the Eco-Connect panel.
In general, it is not always convenient to rely entirely on renewables energy, as quite often it can be insufficient raybirn meeting the total heating and hot water demands of the owner’s lifestyle. Threads collapsed expanded unthreaded. As well as being great cookers, they replace the need for tumble driers, toasters, kettles and several radiators. 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 mmanagement challenge.
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 argues that “climate change allows the richest on earth to trash the lives raybrn the energt and claims that his campaign against Raygurn “will divide rich greens down the middle”. Rounding up the success of the installation, homeowner Paul Browse described the improvements: Paul looked to a manageement central heating Rayburn to replace the cooker, and also supply a renewable source of heating and hot water.
The amp electric Aga came out five years ago. 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.

Rayburn information Rayburn ROI: You will never see an Aga in a landfill site.
Monbiot claims that “a large Aga running on coal turns out nine tonnes of carbon dioxide per year”. Integrating existing heating and hot water systems with renewables can often be problematic. This view is as outdated as the notion that only the poor live close to factories and opencast mining, as he goes on to claim. The Eco-Connect panel solves all of these problems and makes connecting Rayburns, renewables and traditional systems a simple job.
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. Rayburn Eco-Connect System The future of heating Connecting traditional energy sources with the latest renewables technology can be problematic, but here at Rayburn, we have the answer – with the Eco-Connect.
Click here to see some comments from one of our Rayburn Eco-Connect owners. David Carpenter, Rayburn’s Technical Director, said: G eorge Monbiot’s 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. Homeowner Paul Browes, who lives in a 16th century farmhouse in Witnesham, Suffolk, was in for a surprise when he calculated the annual oil costs of his ageing range cooker.
We barely use oil anymore and the Rayburn really has transformed the way we heat our home. 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.
Although it was only used for cooking, it was guzzling over litres of oil per month with no way to reduce the consumption.
