Air Source Heat Pumps
Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) extract heat from the air outside and distribute it throughout the building using heating and hot water systems.
It does this by passing the air through two heat exchanger systems which in turn heats your home and water.
ASHP is classified as a renewable heating technology.
Property owners can benefit from the domestic or non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme and/or the Green Homes Grant.
The Microgeneration Certification Scheme is a nationwide, industry-led certification scheme.
MYelectrical-Renewables is MCS Certified, demonstrating the quality and reliability of our approved products and installation standards.
As well as our friendly, professional service, our installation process is second to none and we ensure the property is clean and tidy afterwards.
The MCS accreditation also includes an ongoing commitment to quality workmanship, customer care, demonstrable competency and ongoing improvements to all the above.
An independent organisation undertakes a regular assessment to ensure that we are compliant.
Green Homes Grant
This scheme is set up by the UK Government to help people in the UK to reduce carbon emissions and one way in which to do this is to have a heat pump installed.
The Green Homes Grant (GHG) enables up to two thirds of the installation costs to be recouped and the sum goes up to £5000, or £10,000 if you are on certain benefits. This sum goes towards an ASHP.
If you have already implemented other measures, such as solar PV or insulated cavity walls, underfloor areas or roof conversions, you can still apply for a GHG.
Those that can apply can be owner-occupiers, long leaseholders, homes of shared ownership, private landlords, registered providers of social housing, park home-owners, homeowners on certain benefits. It is not available for new-build homes.
Homeowners should contact Simple Energy Advice (SEA) to receive advice and if your home is eligible for funding.
GREEN HOMES GRANT INSTALLER
To take advantage of the Green Homes Grant you will need a TrustMark Registered Business to carry out the works required. This provides quality assurance that the work will be carried out to the required high standards. We are proud to be a TrustMark Registered Business
Renewable Heat Incentive
This scheme is set up to encourage the uptake of renewable heat technologies among businesses, householders and communities through financial incentives.
The scheme has a number of phases with the first phase being a cash payment to those property owners who install renewable heat generation. They are then paid on a quarterly basis over seven years and in many cases the payments outweigh the installation costs.
Combine this with the savings made on heating bills, there is a good return on investment and the outlay is usually paid within four to five years.
Those that can claim include owner-occupiers, self-build projects, landlords and registered social housing providers, single domestic dwellings are also covered.
Those that are not covered are new build properties with the exception of self-build projects.
Applicants must apply within one year of the commissioning date of your system and cannot be applied for retrospectively.
Applications are made via the Ofgem website.
This system is suitable is space is limited as the ASHP unit can be attached to an external wall.
Heat can be delivered whatever the weather even in temperatures as low as -15 degrees Celsius.
ASHPs need to comply with Building Regulations and MYelectrical-Renewables can help with this important aspect.
