Air source heat pumps are becoming increasingly popular with UK homeowners. They are a great source of energy and an alternative cooling solution for your home in any climate.
There are various funding options to cover a portion, if not all of your air source heat pump installation. The most important thing to remember is once your air source heat pump has been installed, you could be generating a second income through the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme (RHI).
City Energy has been installing heat pumps for some time and have a comprehensive understanding of
all types of heat pump options, and can certainly help you when it comes to cost-budgeting. If you would like to know more about how you could benefit from installing a new air source heat pump at your home, please get in touch today.
How do Air Source Heat Pumps work?
Heat from the air is absorbed at low temperature into a fluid. This fluid passes through a compressor which increases the temperature and this higher temperature is used to heat water for your heating system (radiators) and your hot water outlets (sinks, showers, baths).
The benefits of Air Source Heat Pumps include:
- Considerably reduces your energy bills
- Can be used for both heating and cooling
- Can work in all climates (Hot & Cold weather conditions)
- A much lower carbon footprint
- Can provide both hot water and heating
You may be eligible for payment under the RHI scheme or the ECO scheme. If you have large garden space outside, you could consider a ground source heat pump. Despite the greater upfront installation cost this type of pump can be more efficient when it comes to heating your home, which results in higher fuel savings and lower energy bills.
