The client based in Wrenbury, Cheshire opted for an Air Source Heat Pump when looking to reduce heating and hot water energy costs. Having considered replacing their existing LPG boiler, they decided to go for a renewable option with a 16kW Samsung ASHP. The heat pump will provide domestic hot water for baths and showers and central heating all year round. The running costs of the Air Source Heat Pump are a fraction of the LPG boiler and they will make a nice return on their investment through the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive.
The property has a heat demand of around 30,000kWh per year which, when provided from LPG, costs around £2000 in fuel. It’s estimated that the electricity costs to power the ASHP will be around £600 per year.
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments will be around £1,800 per year for 7 years. Savings and payments will be in excess of £20,000 over the 7 years of the RHI. Savings will, of course, continue for many years after the RHI.
Air Source Heat Pumps are ideal heating systems for a range of domestic and commercial properties, with low running costs and attractive returns from the Renewable Heat Incentive. For more information on heat pumps or to discuss your project please get in touch with one of the team
