Ground Source Heat Pumps work by using heat from under the ground, which is converted to usable heat via a heat pump. The Ground Source Heat Pump cycle is very efficient and can produce up to 4kW of heat energy for every kW of energy input into the system. The heat energy produced from Ground Source Heat Pumps can be used for heating domestic hot water and for space heating.
Air Source Heat Pumps capture heat energy in the air and work in a similar way to Ground Source Heat Pumps. An Air Source Heat Pump is able to produce approximately 3kW of heat energy for every kW of energy input into the system. In general terms of the air source heat pump units are less efficient than Ground Source Heat Pumps, but are advantageous due to a lower space requirement and installation cost. At Solar Tech, our designers can help you find the most suitable product for your needs and taking into account various factors such as “whole life costs” and installation costs.
Our knowledge and experience allows us to provide a range of services to cater for your renewable energy requirements. We can assist you in finding effective integrated renewable energy systems. Our air source and ground source heat pump systems can be used in conjunction with solar panel systems, including solar hot water heating systems. They also work well with under floor heating. Our team will be able to help you if you are considering integrating air or ground source heat pumps with other renewable energy systems. If you are looking for an alternative heating system for a new home, Ground Source and Air Source Heat Pumps system may be an effective solution.
Why not look into the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme, which is a government scheme designed to increase the number of households and businesses using renewable energy heating systems. The scheme provides for a 'premium payment' of £1250 (subject to eligibility requirements) for the installation of a ground or air source heat pump system. The scheme also provides for ongoing RHI payments for renewable heat energy produced. Please refer to our funding page for further information about the RHI scheme.
Lying very close to the Welsh border Oswestry is a town that has seen many battles over the centuries. With an Iron Age hill fort dated to around 550 BC there has certainly been settlement here for over two thousand years. Like many towns close to the Welsh border it is home to a castle, Whittington castle, and had a football team that competed in the League of Wales.
