Lower your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint with a Heat Pump – these are a renewable technology that converts energy in the ground or air into heat. This process delivers green, low-cost, energy-saving heating and hot water all year round.
The UK government has a number of incentives to improve the energy efficiency of your homes and heat pumps are an ideal solution to reduce your properties carbon footprint while lowering your energy bills.
Heat pumps can deliver a number of benefits:
How do heat pumps work?
Put simply a heat pump takes the available heat from the ground or air surrounding a property and increases it to a more useful temperature for use in the home. This renewable source of heat can be used to create warm air or water (for space and central heating) as well as hot water (for both central heating and domestic hot water supply). It achieves this by taking the same principle that allows a fridge to cool your groceries and by utilising it in reverse.
A heat pump operates in the following way:
Government Funding for Heat Pumps
The Worcester Bosch Greensource and Greenstore Heat Pumps are eligible for the UK governments Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme.
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is the world's first long-term financial support programme for renewable heat. The RHI will pay participants of the scheme to generate and use renewable energy to heat their buildings. The domestic RHI is targeted at, but not limited to, homes off the gas grid. Those without mains gas have the most potential to save on fuel bills and decrease carbon emissions. Tariffs have been calculated by The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and will change annually in-line with the previous year's Retail Price Index. All payments are made directly to the homeowner retrospectively every quarter over a period of seven years.
