Flixborough Eco Technologies have been advising Lou’s Tyres Ltd for a while in matters of energy including the installation of a 15kW Solar PV system.

They then wanted to make the most of the onsite generated electricity to reduce their heating bill. Lou’s Tyres Ltd is a local family tyre supply and fitting centre serving Scunthorpe and the surrounding areas for over 25 years; offering personal service and local knowledge along with an excellent range of tyre brands to suit all pockets and vehicles.

Lou’s Tyres Ltd were originally heating the work bay via a recycled oil boiler but with an uninsulated roof which required frequent door opening and closing and was unreliable; retention of heat became very difficult. When Simon, Director of Lou’s Tyres Ltd approached us to consider the project, it was for staged works. Up to this point we have fitted Herschel Advantage 3’s around the perimeter of the primary lifts with the view to increase the capacity if required. Each radiant heater is on a 30 minute time switch which is minimising usage and there is reduced wastage when areas are not occupied.

When Lou’s Tyres Limited carry out work to a customer’s vehicle, we always have their needs at the forefront of what we do. We like to explain what we are doing and the costs before we do anything to a customer’s vehicle.

When we decided at Lou’s Tyres Ltd that we wanted to save the planet and have Solar Panels fitted, we asked Giles and Stuart to come and explain the benefits and savings to us.  We were very impressed with their knowledge and the prices of the panels was very competitive also.  We proceeded with having the Solar Panels fitted by Flixborough Eco Technologies Limited.

The contractors that Giles used were very polite, efficient and are a good advert to Flixborough Eco Technologies.  I have and will continue to highly recommend Giles and his team with confidence.  We are looking forward to our first feed in tariff payment.  Many Thanks.
