Find Air Source Heat Pump Installers
Location Requirements Prior to Installing an Air Source Heat Pump
Before being seduced by the potential savings to be made on utility bills and the environmental benefits offered by the reductions to carbon emissions, any householder considering the installation of an Air Source Heat Pump system should take a number of factors into account.
Any installation will require an adequate amount of outside space to locate the unit. This should be either ground based or on a site which will allow for attachment to an exterior wall. It must also be in a position which receives a generous amount of direct sunlight and allow for the free flow of air around the system.
The homeowner must also ensure that his property is well insulated and free from any draughts. The most effective use of an air source pump is through a lower temperature of heat generation than is generally provided through a traditional boiler system. If the house is inadequately insulated, it will be too cold for the system to operate at optimum functionality.
If the householder is receiving his energy provision through a mains gas supply, he will not receive such a rapid ROI (return of investment) as those who use electricity or coal based systems. At present, the government backed funding initiatives are primarily being offered to consumers whose homes have the highest level of CO2 emissions caused by electricity and solid fuel. Those using mains gas will not be automatically entitled to inclusion in the RHPP (Renewable Heat Premium Payment) or the upcoming RHI (Renewable Heat Initiative).
Air source pump systems are also not as effective for use with radiator based applications due to the lower temperature of water generated. Warm air fan circulation or underfloor systems can be used to much higher levels of efficiency.
With so much to consider, it is essential that the householder seeks the services of a well established and reputable supplier for the delivery of their air source heat pump installation.
