Air Source Heat Pump for Effective Heating of Homes in Scotland
Greenpower Technology are very experienced installers of air source heat pump technologies to homes throughout Scotland.
The beauty of an air source heat pump is it is so easy to live with. There is virtually no maintenance at all and it can cut your fuel bills. Air source heat pumps are much cheaper than heating your home with oil, LPG or conventional electric heating.
An air source heat pump is a good option for you if you are at home for a large majority of the time. With an air source heat pump you do not need to worry about fuel, you can heat your home and provide hot water without even thinking about it.
As part of our assessment of your property, we undertake a heat loss review and calculation. This is important as we only want to install heat pumps on properties which are suitable; the ideal property being well insulated.
We offer a full range of renewables, so if the assessment shows a heat pump is not suitable for your property, we will advise on other options for you.
The benefits of an air source heat pump for your home
- Savings on your fuel bills ( the savings you enjoy will depend upon the fuel you are replacing)
- Easy to install, to use and live with
- Very minimal maintenance, no weekly or monthly cleaning
- No need for fuel deliveries!
Financial savings for homes installing an air source heat pump
An air source heat pump could lower your fuel bills, particularly if you are replacing a conventional electric heating system.
For a typical family home the approximate investment is around £6 – 10,500. You are also eligible for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) – a financial incentive from the government for generating their own heat energy.
How does it work?
An air source heat pump is installed on the outside of your home, preferably on a sunny wall. It works in a similar way to a fridge, absorbing heat from the outside air and moving it elsewhere, to heat your home and your water.
They operate in temperatures as low as -15° C and need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the air is constantly being renewed naturally.
With an air source heat pump you will need to heat your space in a different way. Heat pumps deliver heat at lower temperatures than gas or electric boilers and over much longer periods. During the winter the heat pump may need to be on constantly to heat your space efficiently. With an air source heat pump you can heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, warm air convectors and hot water.Last updated: September 27th, 2016
