Wales’ premier heating and renewable energy installers Heatforce Wales have helped Llandaff based RC2 (property & regeneration consultancy) in their journey to achieve “net-zero” carbon status. Spearheaded by business owner Robert Chapman, RC2. has been on a path towards carbon neutrality for many years, and the project with Heatforce is the latest in a series of investments. “Over several years now, we have continually invested in Bush House (our head office) as part of our goal to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and to become more sustainable,” said Robert.

With extensive experience in transferring both commercial and residential buildings across to renewable forms of energy production, Jake and his team were not only able to install the ASHP but also retrofit it to… Read more »
