With many homeowners taking a keen interest in protecting the future of the planet as well as looking for methods of driving down energy costs, a domestic heat pump Northampton could be the ideal solution. If you have heard the name but are unsure of the benefits of such an installation, the dedicated and knowledgeable team here at SolarTech are on hand to take you through how the device works as well as the advantages it could bring to your home.
The first thing to know about heat pumps is that there are two main types; air source and ground source. Both work in a similar manner, however the ground source pump derives heat from below the ground whereas an air source takes it from above.
Both heat pumps carry differing advantages; the ground source tends to work more efficiently within homes, producing an average 4kW of heat energy for every kW of energy stored in the device in comparison to the 3kW of heat energy produced by the air source alternative. The advantage of the air source heat pump however, is that it has lower installation costs and takes up less space than the ground source heat pump.
Domestic heat pumps play a huge part in reducing energy bills, especially when used in conjunction with solar panels as renewable energy can then be used to power the entirety of your home, from electrical appliances to underfloor heating and even air conditioning Northampton. This means you can drastically decrease the cost of your utilities.
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government scheme that has been created to encourage homeowners to switch to renewable energy systems; with this in mind, upon installation of either an air or ground source heat pump you will be eligible for the incentive whereby you will receive a £1,250 premium payment, followed by regular ongoing RHI payments from October 2012 onwards.
