Air Source Heat Pumps
The grants are supplied by Ofgem the energy regular under the boiler upgrade scheme (BUS).
BUS aims to incentivise and increase the deployment of low carbon heating by providing support to the supply chain. This means it is an installer-led scheme providing capital incentive such as grants to fund installation of heat pumps in domestic properties and small nondomestic buildings (commercial premisses) in England and Wales.
Grants of £5000 will be available for air source heat pumps (ASHPs) and biomass boilers, and grants of £6000 will be available for ground source heat pumps (GSHPs). The grant value should be deducted from your quote upfront.
Air source heat pumps are probably the most popular for domestic properties. The basic concept involves taking air and increasing the temperature of this air using a compressor, the heated air is transferred to a heating system just like a standard gas boiler system. ASHPs generally replaces the gas boiler, the heat is sent to your radiators or underfloor heating. Hot water is heated in a storage system such a tank and you can use your stored hot water for showers, baths, and taps. This is generally referred as Air-to-water heat pumps.
ASHPs uses electricity to operate but the unit should use less electricity being more energy efficient. Solar panels may be installed to generate the electricity which means that you can operate off grid. The units are generally placed outside your building, at the side or the back of the property. However, they need plenty of space around them for the air to circulate.
Ground Source Heat Pumps.
A Ground Source Heat pump systems derived its heat from the ground. This is generally a more complex system to insulate, however it delivers less CO2 than conventional heating systems, but still needs to use electricity to drive the pumps.
A mixture of water and anti-freeze is pumped around the ground loop and absorbs the naturally occurring heat stored in the ground. The water mixture is compressed and goes through a heat exchanger, which extracts the heat and transfers it to the heat pump. The heat is then transferred to your home heating system.
The Energy Savings Trust has calculated that on average Ground Source Heat Pumps can save an average household approximately £1,400 a year or could add £65 to your annual heating bill depending on which heat heating system you are replacing.
