Air-Source Heat Pumps
Air-source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air which can then be used for radiators, underfloor heating, and hot water systems. They are also known as reverse-cycle air conditioners. If you are looking to lower your carbon footprint, an air-source heat pump is an ideal method for achieving this and you have the potential to receive payments through the UK’s Renewable Heat Incentive.
But there are more positives.
An air-source heat pump can save you money on your energy bills, heat the hot water is always ready to use. And with the correct maintenance, this solution can last you around 20 years. Get in touch with Simon Kelman Plumbing today for a quote.
Solar Thermal Panels
Keeping your water hot can use up around 18% of your household energy, so the costs can become quite high over the year. A method of bringing these costs down is installing solar thermal panels. Instead of relying on fossil fuels you can use the sun’s energy to heat your water, this is stored in a hot water tank for later use.
The most obvious advantage to using solar thermal panels to heat your water? It is FREE! Solar energy is plentiful, even on a cloudy day in Scotland and approximately 80% of the sun’s radiation is converted into energy. Solar thermal panels take up less space too.
Solar thermal panels take up less space too. A typical solar PV installation could need as many as 16 panels fitted to your roof, but a solar thermal panel installation uses only 2-3. This means the costs of installation are cheaper too so you start to see the financial benefits sooner. Contact Simon Kelman Plumbing today for a consultation.
