FAQs

Q

What does a heat pump do?

A

It extract heat from the ground, air, or water is constantly being renewed naturally.

Q

What types are available?.

A

Air source and  Ground source

Q

What do I need to consider initially?

A

1. Do you have somewhere to put it.
2. Is your home well insulated.
3. What fuel will you be replacing.
4. What type of heating system will you use.
5. Is the system intended for a new development.

Air Source Heat

An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -15° C. Heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the ground, air, or water is constantly being renewed naturally

A ground source heat pump system harnesses natural heat from underground by pumping water through it. The heat pump then increases the temperature, and the heat is used to provide home heating or hot water.

The pump needs electricity to run, but the idea is that it uses less electrical energy than the heat it produces.

The heat pump performs the same role as a boiler does in a central heating system, but it uses ambient heat from the ground rather than burning fuel to generate heat. Unlike an air source heat pump, which takes heat from the air.

Benefits:

1. Lower fuel bills, especially if you are replacing conventional electric heating.
2. Potential income through the UK government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
3. lower your carbon emissions, depending on which fuel you are replacing.
4. No fuel deliveries needed.
5. Can heat your home as well as your water.
6. Minimal maintenance required.
