Heat Pump FAQs - Quote Considerations
Switching to a renewable source of heat or power for your home is usually a significant investment and not a decision to be taken lightly. Having made the decision to switch to renewable energy, your next step is to choose the best technology for your building. There is a large range of renewable heating solutions available on the market today, including:
Ground Source Heat Pumps, which collect heat from the ground through loops of buried pipes and use the heat gathered to power your water or underfloor heating system
Solar-powered technology, which uses energy from the sun.
Air Source Heat Pumps which collect heat from the outside air and use it to heat your home.
You will firstly need to understand which is most suitable for your property, and then you can proceed to a quote for your heat pump installation.
When it comes to installing a new heat pump in your house, the cheapest solution may not be the most efficient or the most financially sound solution in the long-run. There are many factors to consider when assessing the suitability of a certain type of heat pump for a certain property. For example, the current heating system, insulation standard, layout, location and aspect of your property all play a part in determining the effectiveness of particular heat pump models. There are also other factors which come into play affecting the financial reality of installation.
For example, the necessity to apply for planning permission or the possibility of receiving payments from the government. The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a scheme whereby the UK government rewards homeowners who switch to more renewable heating their home by paying cash based on various criteria, such as the type of renewable heat and the type of property. The money received under this scheme can make a significant contribution to reducing the overall running costs of your new system and is therefore a factor to consider when making your decision.
As mentioned, there are various types of renewable heat technology, and most people will consider a few solutions to decide on the best one for them. However, in order to get a proper quote for the installation of a certain type of technology, you will need to have a heat loss assessment and feasibility study done on your property. Online quotes can give you a very general idea but each property is unique and to get an accurate quote you will require a property visit. Receiving visits and assessments from various companies can become both bothersome and expensive, which is where the advantages of employing Franck Energy really come to the forefront.
