Heat Pumps Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Shropshire
HEAT PUMPS TECHNOLOGY
With the drive to reduce energy usage we are hearing a lot about Heat Pumps. In fact the Government has announced new funding for clean heat systems – offering grants to help you pay for a new Heat Pump Installation.
WHAT ARE HEAT PUMPS?
Heat pumps are energy-efficient and space saving. They can both heat and cool buildings, unlike traditional radiators or air conditioning systems. Most heat pumps work in the same way as a fridge does.
HOW EFFICIENT ARE THEY?
Heat pumps can be very efficient. They can achieve efficiencies of between 300% and 500%. This is usually expressed in product literature as a ‘Coefficient of Performance’ (COP for short). 300% is given as a COP of 3 to 1 and 500% as 5 to 1.
HOW DOES THIS EFFICIENCY IMPACT ON THE COST?
As a capital investment, heat pump air conditioning systems generally cost more than traditional heating or cooling systems. But their superior energy efficiency rating means that they are accorded considerable tax breaks by the UK government. For more on this, read the HM Revenue & Customs information on 100% Enhanced Capital Allowances for Energy-Saving Investments.
