Energy-efficient building solutions can seem more costly upfront, but choosing the sustainable option saves you money in the long run. By investing in a green solution, you reduce your operational costs and take advantage of renewable resources. Stay ahead of legislation and increase the market value of your building.

Many buildings typically operate separate systems for heating, cooling, refrigeration, ventilation and hot water. As a result, a large amount of energy is wasted. We can offer a more efficient alternative which can manage up to 70% of a building’s energy consumption to intelligently deliver maximum energy efficiency at minimal operating costs and to reduce CO2 emissions.

Heat pumps

Ground source heat pumps are ideal for new homes or large-scale renovations using horizontal loops where land is available, or vertical probes drilled perpendicularly into the ground. By extracting energy from below the Earth’s surface, ground source heat pumps are extremely reliable, even in the coldest climates. Ground temperatures remain fairly stable throughout the year, making it an ideal renewable energy source.

An air source heat pump is dimensioned to meet all your heating and hot water needs which for the average UK home accounts for 82% of your total final energy use according to the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) 2013 statistics. When you heat your property using a heat pump, your running costs are reduced to the amount of electricity required to run the heat pump, and because a heat pump is designed to produce at least 2.5 units of heat for 1 unit of input electricity, this can mean considerable savings to your energy bill if it is replacing oil, LPG or all-electric heating.

The Renewable Heat Incentive is now available and rewards householders investing in air source heat pumps with regular payments received in respect of the amount of heat energy produced by the heat pump. Unfortunately, the RHI does not cover Air to Air heat pumps.

Investment and Funding

The installation of an air source heat pump normally will require an investment of between £6,000 and £10,000, depending on different factors, such as the size of the property and the levels of energy demand. The amount of money that you save from introducing an air heat pump system will depend on the characteristics of your property, how warm you like to keep your house, etc. When converting from an oil boiler to an air source heat pump, our customers on average save between £600-£1000 a year.
