Flow Energy has launched its Flow Eco RF boiler which could cut carbon emissions by 20% and reduce gas bills by up to 15%.
The independent supplier is in the process of expanding its heat product range in an attempt to offer consumers a wider range of choice and the opportunity to save money.
A smartphone app will allow consumers to be able to control their internet connected boiler, which also has remote diagnostics which allow for issues to be fixed directly from installers offices and reduce the need for call outs.
Intergas will manufacture the boiler and will be sold by Flow’s Brand Ambassador installers throughout the UK. This model removes wholesalers from the supply chain to give installers an increased margin and end customer’s better value.
Tony Stiff, Chief Executive of Flow Group, commented: “The energy supply division of our business has grown phenomenally in the past year, and we’re keen to replicate this growth in our products division.
“We’re doing this by partnering with the likes of Intergas to deliver exciting and innovative heating products, such as the Flow Eco RF boiler, and by leveraging our strong existing Brand Ambassador network we’re taking a completely new approach to the heating market.”
Flow is offering the boiler as part of a 10 year home energy bundle which will include the boiler, installation, a 10 year warranty and the in-touch system.
In 2015 Flow group created an innovative micro-combined heat and power (micro-CHP) boiler designed to convert heat from combustion into electricity. By generating power at the point-of-use while using the heat, the Flow boiler significantly reduces the carbon intensity of that power.
Interim results from Flowgroup showed its second stream as an energy reseller is surging, while its original core business as a boiler developer hangs in the balance ahead of a government decision over feed-in tariffs (FIT).
