An efficient alternative for renewable heating
‘Whether you live in a small apartment, a large detached house or run an office block, factory or school, air source heat pumps are now an exciting alternative to burning fossil fuels. Heat pumps are the renewable, low carbon alternative to traditional high carbon heating systems.
Not only is the technology truly renewable, Heat Pumps are also delivering excellence in energy efficiency, work across all weather conditions and can deliver heat in the winter months and hot water all year around. Added to this, clients who install the technology can receive payments via the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme, which means paybacks for the system are remarkably quick.’
What is a Heat Pump?
In simple terms, a heat pump is a device that transfers heat from an external source (such as the heat in the ground or air) to another location (such as the hot water system or central heating in a house). This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, or warm air convectors and hot water in your home.
Heat pumps can lower your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint. All the while providing heating and hot water all year round.
Heat Pump Benefits:
- Lower fuel bills.
- Additional income through the RHI.
- Lower carbon emissions.
- Much safer than combustion based heating systems.
- Versatility to heat your home as well as your water.
- Minimal maintenance required.
- Long life span, and a reliable and steady source of heat.
Heat Pump Performance
In comparison to fossil fuel boilers, heat pumps will contribute towards reducing your carbon footprint and are vastly superior in terms of efficiency. They supply more heating than the amount of electricity used to run them and will consistently perform well, even at extreme temperatures of -20 degrees.
Properly designed and installed heat pumps regularly attain more than 300 per cent efficiency.
Will 2020 be the year that heat pumps take off in the UK?
With the increasing need to curb the dependence on fossil fuels and find renewable alternatives for heating homes and businesses, the popularity of heat pumps are definitely on the rise, with market growth predicted to double by 2025.
