We are fully qualified and experienced in installing this complex renewable energy system.
With two choices available, we can advise as to the best type of heat pump for your budget, location and needs.
We can offer guidance on all aspects including any funding that could be available to you.
We cover the complete project from specification and pricing right through to installation and ongoing maintenance.
What are Heat Pumps?
Heat pumps are an efficient and effective way of creating hot water in your home or business.
Heat pumps absorb heat from another source and transfer it to a liquid which is then compressed so the temperature increases.
The heat is then transferred into water which can be used to provide heating for a property through radiators or underfloor heating.
What are the benefits of having a heat pump installed?
Lower energy costs
Protection from rising energy costs
Owners could be eligible for government financial support
Lower your carbon footprint
Reduce your reliance on fossil fuels
The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is a nationwide, industry-led certification scheme.
MYelectrical-Renewables is MCS Certified which demonstrates the quality and reliability of 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 assessment takes place by independent organisation to ensure that we comply.
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
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.
Green Homes Grant
This scheme was set up by the UK Government to help people in the UK to reduce carbon emissions. One way 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.
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 require high standards. We are proud to be a TrustMark Registered Business.
Is My Home Or Business Suitable?
There are a lot of considerations when it comes to installing a heat pump and understanding which type is best to meet your needs, for example availability of outdoor space is an important factor when considering a ground source heat pump.
From a new build to the renovation of an existing home or business, we can advise on the suitability of your property.
We will carry out an on-site survey and outline the important aspects such as suitability, costs and installation.
What Types of Heat Pump Are Available?
There are two types of heat pumps provided by MYelectrical-Renewables.
Air Source Heat Pumps – extract heat from the outside air and distribute it through the building using heating and hot water systems.
Ground Source Heat Pumps – extract heat from the ground, and distribute it through the building using heating and hot water systems.
