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 .

Monbiot argues that “climate change allows the richest on earth to trash the lives of the raybhrn and claims that his campaign against Agas “will divide rich greens down the middle”. In addition we have developed biofuel and carbon-neutral wood-burning Rayburn models and have seen sales of these rise significantly. Chris then discussed the most effective approach to optimise the system for wood burning.

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.

Loading comments… Trouble loading? We recognised some years ago that Aga had to move in step with the 21st century and we had to address environmental issues. 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.

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.

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

Monbiot claims that “a large Aga running on coal turns out nine tonnes of carbon dioxide per year”. Priority is always automatically given to the renewable heat source. The Eco-Connect panel solves all of these problems and makes connecting Rayburns, renewables and traditional systems a simple job. The future of microgeneration in the home requires energy storage, and that is exactly what the Aga’s cast iron provides.

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.


If the renewable appliance is not giving sufficient output, the fossil fuelled boiler is brought into operation in a mixed mode. Instead of continuing on with the inefficient cooker, he set out to limit his reliance on fossil fuels and embrace agz more sustainable way to heat his home. Homeowner Paul Browes, who lives in a 16th century farmhouse in Witnesham, Suffolk, rayhurn in for a surprise when he calculated the annual oil costs of his ageing range cooker.

Rayburn information Rayburn ROI: In essence, hot water managemeng diverted by the Eco-Connect to where it is needed. Once completed, he expects this to sufficiently produce enough DHW for the property without needing the oil boiler at all. The world has moved on and so have we. Eco-Connect works with a diverse rangeof systems, including: The amp electric Aga came out five years ago.

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. 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.

Rounding up the success of the installation, homeowner Paul Browse described the improvements: It also incorporates a display panel showing the current operating status and which energy source is being used – e. 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.

Topics Energy efficiency Opinion. Paul’s new installation ensures that the Eco-Connect biases the wood-fired Rayburn as the primary source of heating and hot water. 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.

However, for anyone who has had rayburm foresight to install these products, there has always been one perennial problem: 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 enegry hot water demands of the owner’s lifestyle.


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

David Carpenter, Rayburn’s Technical Director, said: Surely we don’t need a “class war” but a spirit of solidarity. Show 25 25 50 All. And if the renewable appliance e. And with the Eco-Connect panel already pre-set with operating modes; I haven’t really had to think about it since. 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.

For British households, there has been no escaping the ever ,anagement cost of heating our homes, especially for rayyburn that are off the gas grid and reliant on fossil fuels. 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.

Agas last indefinitely and can themselves be recycled. Order by newest oldest recommendations. Managemsnt 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.

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. You will never see an Aga in a landfill site. 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 whole industrial revolution started in our foundry inwith the smelting of iron ore with coke to make cast iron cooking pots.
