Over the years the demand for air source heat pumps in the UK has sky rocketed. There are a few main factors why the demand for a heat pump has increased.
One being new building regulations stating that all new builds need to have a renewable energy source. Not only does this allow for a greener environment but allows house hold owners the opportunity for lower energy costs too.
Another reason air source heat pumps in the UK are becoming increasingly popular is due to the government heat pump grant. A big question is how much does an air to water heat pump cost and how much will a customer save.
Customers can receive up to £12,000 towards a brand new heat pump. To find out more about the heat pump grant click here.
Understanding heat pump demands, Joule & Samsung have worked together to supply the UK’s leading ground source heat pump. Recently Joule & Samsung provided optimised software compatible with our Cyclone cylinder range producing new and improved nZeb efficiency figures.
An air to water heat pump, also known as an air source heat pump and air to water heating. Air to water heat pumps extract their heat energy from outside air in order to heat your home or business.
The process of a heat pump consists of an evaporator, a compressor and a condenser. It absorbs heat from outside air and the heat pump compressor then increases the temperature of that further to create useful heat.
The heat pump uses the heat from ambient air, which is free and a renewable energy source for heating and hot water. Using a heat pump system is an energy efficient and environmentally friendly solution.
Air to water heat pumps supplied by Joule are compatible with other heating a hot water products. Joule’s heat pumps can be integrated with radiators, underfloor heating, hot water cylinders and solar thermal systems.
Joule’s range of the industry leading Samsung Mono heat pumps are installed across the country down to their sophistication.
What separates Joule heat pumps is the aspiration to keep refining the already accomplished leading technologies to meet customers satisfactions.
The air to water heat pump is 40% more compact resulting in savings on installation labor and costs. The performance of the heat pump maintains its efficiency at temperatures in the minus. The next time storm Ophila makes an appearance, have a peace of mind that Joule’s heat pump will run efficiently.
Ofgem speaks with a customer who decided to purchase a ground source heat pump and the reasons why.
“We had the exciting opportunity to build a brand new house in a beautiful Oxfordshire village, replacing a thatched cottage that had been destroyed in a fire.
For us, installing a ground source heat pump was a no-brainer. There’s no mains gas to the house and with the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) the heat pump was not only the right decision for environmental purposes, it was easily the best option financially.
Now that the house is finished, we couldn’t be more delighted with the heating and hot water – with highly reliable performance, low maintenance costs and very reasonable electricity bills.”
