Proposed changes to RHI Schemes resurrected
Air Source Heat Pumps
Air Source Heat Pumps are an efficient source of renewable heat. They work by extracting heat from the outside air, and can do so down to temperatures as low as -15°C, although they are less efficient at very low temperatures. If correctly specified, they can provide enough heat to meet all the heating and domestic hot water requirements for the property.
They are usually positioned against a suitable exterior wall and require very little space, although they do need air to circulate freely around them. They usually consist of an outdoor unit, with a fan to draw air over a large heat exchanger, and an indoor unit housing the hot water cylinder and controls.
Benefits of air source include:-
- Easy to retrofit
- Cost effective
- Low space requirement
- Qualifies for both domestic and non-domestic RHI payments
