What is a Air Source Heat Pump?
A Heat Pump is a unit that will be located outside of the property. It takes air in through the pump and boosts it to a higher temperature. The Heat pump does use electricity to power the unit but will use less electricity to power the Heat Pump than the heat it will provide for your property. On average every unit of electricity the Heat pump uses for power it will generate 2-3 units of heat.
There are many reasons why considering having a Heat Pump Installed is a positive investment.
- Heat Pumps can save money on your heating bills,
- Heat Pumps are environmental friendly compared to other forms of heating like Oil, Coal and Gas. Heat Pumps will help to reduce these Co2 emissions.
- Heat Pumps require very little or no maintenance,
- The Air to Water Heat Pumps that we install are eligible for the RHI Scheme. The Renewable Heat Incentive
What is the RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive)
The RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) is the scheme put in place to financially reward customers who are benefiting from renewable energy sources to heat their properties.
There is a separate RHI for domestic and non domestic customers.
The RHI is a seven year scheme where you will receive payments every quarter . This will be based on every Kwh of heat that the Air Source Heat Pump will produce.
