The Renewable Energy Advice Line aims to provide you with the information you need to choose the best renewable heating solution for your home. We’ll cover what renewable heating is, the options you have, costs and how we can help further.
What is renewable heating?
Before you invest in a renewable heating system, you need to know what renewable heating is. As the world becomes more aware of climate change, more sustainable solutions and how the average household can contribute towards a greener environment, many are making the shift to renewables.
As the name suggests, renewable heating measures take advantage of renewable resources which can be replenished over time. One of the biggest positives of renewable heating is that your carbon footprint is reduced, so you can live in a greener way.
Using renewable sources, opposed to the standard gas and electric, can supply your home with a constant source of heat, which requires less energy than you are used too. Renewable heating is a highly beneficial option and can be made possible with schemes such as the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
The Renewable Heat Incentive?
To encourage more homeowners to take the leap into the world of renewable heating, the Renewable Heat Incentive was created. Following the installation of your renewable heating solution, if you have met specific criteria, you will then begin to receive quarterly payments over 7-years.
These quarterly payments will soon add up and in most cases, you will be reimbursed for your initial spend on installing the system.
Is an air source heat pump right for your home?
An air source heat pump takes heat from external air, converts it to liquid and pumped around your property when the liquid is heated.
Even in temperatures as low as -15 degrees, an air source heat pump can provide an excellent level of heating to your home. As it is such a modern solution, the heat can be pumped around your home via piping and radiators, or a fan system. Of course, it depends on how modern your home is.
With a potential to operate for as long as 20-years, air source heat pumps are often a cheaper source of renewable heating. With fast and easy installation, they’re safe to run, provide a consistent level of heating to your home and of course; reduce your heating bills .
Other sources of renewable heating include biomass boilers, ground source heat pumps and solar thermal systems. To find out what solution is best for your home, send our experts a message and we’ll be only too happy to help.
