A heat pump is a low carbon heat source that makes use of electricity to draw out the heat kept in the ground or air, upgrading it for your hot water and heating. Apart from being efficient and eco friendly, many individuals can reclaim the expense of a heat pump fitting over a seven year duration via the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive.
Heat pumps operate through making use of the refrigeration process to convert low temperature energy into higher temperature energy used for hot water in residential properties and warming up households. Even when the temperature is as low as -20 degrees outside, a heat pump can produce much more energy than it consumes. Furthermore, as it does not release CO2 emissions, you can minimise your environmental impact. To utilise this free environmental supply, an energy input is necessary.
In a house with full insulation, every kilowatt of electricity used for the heat pump’s operation can offer as much as 3 kilowatts of free energy. This ratio is called the Coefficient of Performance (CoP). In this instance, the CoP would be 4, so the heat pump efficiency is 400%. If you place this beside a boiler that functions at 90% efficiency, the better option is obvious. Since a heat pump works best when creating lower water temperatures than a classic boiler, it is vital to join it with the correct heat emitter. For instance, you may want to consider pairing it with oversized radiators. Underfloor heating would also pair well with a heat pump.
Solar thermal systems are a renewable option consisting of solar panels to produce hot water in households, that qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive. These systems are competitive in price and easy to fit, both on the roof and inside. Moreover, the majority of properties can generate as much as 60% of their yearly hot water requirement, gaining as much as 100% during the warmer months, with this renewable option.
