Keep warm this winter with a Heat Pump
Do you spend thousands of pounds every winter on LPG, oil or electric for heating? An air source heat pump (ASHP) could be the perfect solution to save you money while keeping you warm.
ASHP's work by drawing in the cold air from outside via a quiet fan. Energy is extracted from the air by the system's heat exchanger. It will then convert this energy to heat your home. Due to their short, straight forward installation, this type of heat pump can be used with existing heating system in your home as well as for new build housing. What's more, they will generate energy all year round and do not rely on light or wind to work.
Is an air source heat pump right for me?
It is important to consider the following when deciding to install an ASHP to ensure it is the right solution for your home and will bring you more benefits than expenses.
Alternatives to Air Source Heat Pumps
If an ASHP is not the correct solution for your home there are several alternatives for you to provide heating, hot water, generate electricity, earn an additional income or to become more environmentally friendly.
Solar thermal or solar hot water can provide up to 60% of your annual hot water usage. It requires a solar thermal collector to be installed on your roof; the size of the system will vary depending on the number of people living at your home. This system is less expensive than a heat pump but it only provides hot water and will not heat your home.
Wind turbines are considerably more expensive compared to other renewable energy systems; they require large areas of land and are subject to planning permission. If you have the land and capital of the initial outlay, a wind turbine is definitely worth consideration as a small wind turbine can generate enough electricity to cover your annual usage.
Ground Source Heat Pump
This is the same concept as an air source heat pump to heat your home from natural resources, although this solution is considerably more expensive as it requires pipes to be laid on a large area of land horizontally or for a well to be extracted for the pipe vertically. This will extract heat from the ground and achieves even higher efficiencies than the air source heat pump.
