Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) generate heat using a renewable energy source, the air!

Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the ambient air, and compresses it though a refrigeration circuit to provide heating and hot water, this works even if the temperature drops as low as -20⁰C.

Installing an Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) can help to lower your energy bills, especially if you are living in a home currently heated by electric.

You can earn an income from Air Source Heat Pumps, taking advantage of the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme.

Solar Renewable can provide you with a quote detailing the estimated savings and return on your investment.

As well as saving money on your energy bills, Air Source Heat Pumps are eligible for the Government’s RHI.

Once your ASHP is registered you will earn 7.42 pence per kWh. You will receive this payment quarterly for seven years. The amount that you receive will not change even if the RHI changes in future years.

Once your ASHP is installed, Solar Renewable will help you fill out the paperwork so you can start to earn your RHI.

How do they work?

An ASHP takes heat from ambient air and compresses it through a refrigeration circuit to provide heating, hot water and or air conditioning.

The pump extracts heat from air above -20ºC, compresses it and releases it into your heating system. There are systems which are designed to do the reverse in the summer months giving you air conditioning.

They produce a lower heat than gas and oil boilers, but over a longer period of time and through larger radiators resulting in substantially cheaper running costs.

The ASHP works exactly like a system boiler feeding hot water and heating circuits. The hot water will be a maximum of 55ºC and can be used for hot water supplies or heating. Once installed they provide a fully automatic heating system with no need for further adjusting / setup.
