Air Source Heat Pumps
Air source heat pump technology has been around for a number of years, but only recently has it become one of the leading options for renewable heating around the home. They work by absorbing the heat from the outside air which can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating or hot water cylinders. The easiest example to compare the technology is with refrigerators, instead of using the air to make something cold the heat pumps do the reverse.
They use refrigerant gases which are pumped around the system, through a compressor, which then increases the heat and is then transferred to the heating/hot water system in the house. They can even work in temperatures down to -15 degrees Celsius.
Not only can you benefit from heating your home, but you will also qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive which at present is the highest it has been!
The Renewable heat incentive is a scheme that allows homeowners to receive a fixed income while using a heat pump.The income is fixed for 7 years and you get up to 1 year to register for it after the installation.
