Penguin is celebrating 10 years on the scene, keeping energy-smart homeowners comfortably warm and cool with high-efficiency systems.

Since 2008, the company has become a familiar presence across the Algarve, their cheeky yellow vans catching the eye as they nip from job to job. Having opened for business as air-con installers, the company soon broadened to embrace other technologies.

Today they offer expertise in all aspects of home heating and cooling, advising which low-energy systems are best-suited to your home and lifestyle. For properties under construction or renovation, they work with architects, engineers and builders to design and install fully-integrated systems, with energy-efficiency the guiding principle.

Penguin also apply smart technology to control the latest air-con and heat pump systems, to help maintain an optimal indoor climate at minimal cost. Solar technology, however, requires no such control: whether thermal solar for free domestic hot water, or photovoltaic (PV) to generate electricity, these reliable systems can be left to function by themselves in the Algarve sunshine.

Summing up a decade of progress, director Chris Blackburn comments: “To an extent the recession drove a need for low-consumption systems and we’ve kept abreast of the latest technologies and solutions to address that demand. Coupled with this expertise comes the experience gained in 10 years’ meeting the needs of property owners in the Algarve – a region with its own particular climate conditions and market demands. It hasn’t always been a steady march of progress for Penguin – sometimes more a waddle and a hop! – but to stay on top of the scene we must be doing something right.”
