At CS Heat Pumps we can offer a large range of solutions to help make your home more efficient. Here’s how an air source heat pump can help to save you money on heating.
There are several types of heat pumps available, each providing a range of low to high temperature applications that suit different heating requirements.
Externally mounted and connected directly to your heat source.
Comprising of both an internal and external unit connected with refrigerant pipework.
Both of the above are suited to new build and renovation projects. Radiators may need to be replaced as a result.
This combines heat pump technology with a high efficiency gas combi-boiler suited to existing gas boiler replacement.
Air source heat pump can offer;
· Savings of up to 40% in annual energy bills. Ideal for ‘off gas’ properties
· Reduced carbon footprint
· Easy integration into most heating systems
· An efficient energy alternative to oil, LPG and electric systems
· Easy compatibility with solar thermal
· Ability to connect to any smart phone, tablet or PC device for remote operation
· 5% VAT low carbon technology
· Up to 7 years warranty and minimal maintenance
Air source heat pumps make the most financial sense in properties which are off the gas grid and therefore use expensive fuels like electricity, oil, LPG or coal for space heating. If you’re connected to mains gas then you’ll probably be better off with a hybrid system.
A well-insulated home with high standards of air-tightness is also preferable. This is because heat pumps are most effective in homes which warm up quickly and are good at keeping heat in.
Heating systems powered by air source heat pumps operate at a lower temperature than ‘normal’ systems, so they need a distribution system that delivers heat over a larger surface area. Underfloor heating systems work particularly well with a heat pump.
But in all cases, improving the energy efficiency of your home first will help you reduce your heating needs and in turn enable you to run a smaller and cheaper heat pump.
As well as offering savings, in conjunction with the Renewable Heat Incentive, an air source heat pump can also earn you money for the energy that you generate.
