Go Green by Upgrading to a Air Source Heat Pump

Fighting climate change is important to us here at Pace Heating & Plumbing and we believe that air source heat pumps can help Londoners operate their homes in a more environmentally sustainable and affordable manner.

Air Source Heat Pumps can heat your home – giving you heat home and keep your family comfortable when it isn’t too cold outside. That makes them one of the easiest ways to help reduce your CO2 emissions without sacrificing comfort.

And since a air source heat pump is more efficient than a boiler at milder temperatures, it may help you reduce your energy bills too. It can also help reduce your carbon footprint from an energy usage (running the equipment) standpoint. This is because the electricity grid here is fairly clean and produced largely from non-carbon emitted sources.

Not only do the air source heat pumps offer economical heating of domestic and commercial settings, they can also provide a total solution for domestic heating and hot water supply. Connecting solar collectors to the heat pump system further increases efficiency and savings

The costs of installing an air source heat pump can vary from £8,000 to £18,000, while ground source heat pump costs can range anywhere from £20,000 to £35,000. But, thanks to the savings and grants, like the RHI, homeowners can start earning money after a few years.

An air source heat pump produces more heat energy than it uses in electricity. ... It costs about 4.6p per kilowatt-hour (kWh) to heat a home with gas. And it's about 9 -16p per kWh using standard electric heaters. A typical air source heat pump might cost about 4.7p per kWh to run.

Heat pumps are cheaper to run than systems based on gas combustion. The more energy efficient the systems are, the greater long term savings on energy. Despite the fact that the prices of ground source heat pumps can go up to even £45,000, this friendly environmentally investment can help you save up to £1,400 per year.

ENERGY TIPS

Even the most efficient condensing boilers waste energy, often somewhere between 6-12% of the energy they use, while an Air-Source Heat Pump produces 3 times as much energy as it uses.

How does a air source heat pump work?

During the winter, an air source heat pump keeps your home warm by removing heat from the air outside and pushing it inside. Your boiler only kicks in when the temperature really drops.

What are the environmental benefits of an air source heat pump?

  • Air source heat pumps run on electricity and consequently produce lower CO2 emissions than a boiler that burns natural gas.
  • Most electricity in the UK is produced through non-carbon emitting sources, especially in South East England.
  • Since your boiler won’t be running as much, you could significantly reduce your home’s CO2 emissions.

Is an air source heat pump right for my home?

There’s no doubt that air source heat pumps have a huge role to play in the future of home heating. However not all properties are suitable for an air source heat pump.

It’s important to ensure that your home is suitable for an air source heat pump before having one installed. Not all heat pumps are created equal. Choosing the right heat pump will help it run efficiently, help keep your budget in check and your home feeling comfortable.

Before you choose an air source heat pump unit, here are a few things to consider:

How big is your home? Do you live in a warmer or colder part of the country? Both are key considerations when determining your unit size and power.

How well is your home insulated? The amount and type of insulation will influence the size and power of the heat pump you will need.

You could potentially be saving up to £900 on your energy bills each year by replacing your current heating system with an Air Source Heat Pump.

if you have a new gas boiler with an ErP A rating installed, then you're better off sticking with what you've got. However, if you have an older boiler or one that runs on electricity then you could be making considerable savings each year.

Even the most efficient boilers waste energy, often somewhere between 6-12% of the energy they use, while an Air Source Heat Pump produces 3 times as much energy as it uses. As Air Source Heat Pumps are powered by electricity, ensure that you're on the best energy tariff available.

the point above are essential as air-to-water heat pumps heat the water circulated to the central heating radiators to a lower temperature than boilers. Without the above, your home wouldn’t feel the benefit of the heat pump.

In addition, air-to-water heat pumps also need to be installed alongside a hot water storage cylinder. A hot water unvented cylinder which is where the domestic hot water is stored and kept warm until it needs to be delivered to a tap, bath or shower.
