Although it was only used for cooking, it was guzzling over litres of oil per month with no way to reduce the consumption. 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. 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.

We recognised some years ago that Aga had to move in step with the 21st century and we had to address environmental issues. Priority is always automatically given to the renewable heat source. Order by newest oldest recommendations. 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.

Be a global citizen.

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. 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.

With Aga and Rayburn we see ourselves not as the problem but the solution to changing consumer cooking needs and to energy management in the home. For British households, there has been no escaping the ever increasing cost of hoe our homes, especially for properties that are off the gas grid and reliant on fossil fuels. The future of microgeneration in the home requires energy storage, and that is exactly what the Aga’s cast iron provides.


This view is as outdated as the notion that only the poor live close to factories and opencast mining, as he goes on to claim. Rounding up the success of the installation, homeowner Paul Browse described the improvements: We actively encourage owners with old coal msnagement to upgrade to the newer, more efficient models. Thermistors are used in conjunction with an intelligent control panel to sense the water temperature of the flow and return pipes and domestic hot water DHW cylinder.

In mangaement 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. Monbiot claims that “a large Aga running managenent coal turns out nine tonnes of carbon dioxide per year”.

If the renewable appliance is not giving sufficient output, the fossil fuelled boiler is brought into operation in a mixed mode. However, if the homeowner has selected one of the ‘eco’ options, the boiler will not automatically fire.

Once completed, he expects this to sufficiently produce enough DHW for the property without needing the oil boiler at all. You will never see an Aga in a landfill site. 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. 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.


Monbiot argues that “climate change allows the richest on earth to trash the lives of the poorest” and claims that his campaign against Agas “will divide rich greens down the middle”. Surely we don’t need a “class war” but a spirit of solidarity.

Rayburn | Eco-Conntect Panel | Home Energy Management | Case Studies

The world has rayubrn on and so have we. After 35 years in the trade, Chris mmanagement who is a Rayburn Guild member and runs his business in Framlingham, Suffolk – has plenty of experience installing central heating range cookers. 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. We barely use oil anymore and the Rayburn really has transformed the way we heat our home.

Threads collapsed expanded unthreaded.

Agas last indefinitely and can themselves be recycled. Eco-Connect works with a diverse rangeof systems, including: However, for anyone who has had the foresight to install these products, there has always been one perennial problem: As well as being great cookers, they replace the need for tumble driers, toasters, kettles and several radiators.

Response: A home with an Aga cooker can use less energy than one without | Opinion | The Guardian

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.

In essence, hot water is diverted by the Eco-Connect to where emergy is needed. As a result an Aga or Rayburn home can use less energy per month than a comparable home. 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.

I knew it offered everything he was looking for and would be a great investment; so we discussed it further and looked at the system requirements.
