A heat pump is an extremely efficient way of supplying heating and hot water needs
The UK government announced a series of improvements to the Renewable Heat Incentive. Air and ground source heat pumps are an ideal solution to reduce your property’s carbon footprint. Not only this but you’ll benefit from low cost heating. Heat pumps are a renewable technology that converts energy in the ground or air into heat.
This process lowers your energy bills and reduces your carbon footprint. All the while providing heating and hot water all year round.
Heat pumps can deliver a number of benefits:
The efficiency of these heat pumps should not be underestimated. They use specially designed compression technology. They generate heat without needing to burn fuel or use anything other than the energy produced by the system itself.
Maximising the Benefits
To maximise the benefits of these heat pumps, they must be of the appropriate size for each individual situation. Plus they will need to be installed correctly. A business using a heat pump to generate heat and hot water for several offices and a warehouse, for example, is going to need a larger installation than is required to heat a small house. It is also important that the heat pumps are installed by an experienced team who will ensure the installation is completed quickly and without any problems.
Find Out Which Heat Pump Suits Your Situation
Heat pumps come in two main systems, air source and ground source. Which is most suited to you will depend largely on your property’s location and positioning. What you intend to heat will need to be taken into consideration too.
