How Do Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pumps are electricity powered systems that move heated air from one point to another. The heat pump circulates refrigerant to transfer heat. Heat pumps work by transferring heat from hot places to where cold locations and vice versa. Heat pumps can be operated off various sources of energy.

Advantages Of Ground Source Heat Pumps
Heating your property using a heat pump will cost less than using electricity systems. Ground Source Heat Pumps also save money compared to gas boilers and oil boilers. Depending on the type of ground source heat pump you install, you can expect savings of between 500 to pounds every year.
Heat pumps don’t generate carbon emissions. In fact, you can power your heat pump with renewable energy entirely. That’s in direct contrast to biomass, LPG, burning oil and coal. These systems create carbon emissions at the generating plant or in your home.
You will not experience fuel shortage using heat pumps. A furnace is no longer needed and this space can be converted into a usable space. Chances are you will not need planning permission for heat pump installation. Heat pumps are the heating technology of the future. Conventional heating systems will become obsolete. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Rayleigh.
Your energy expenses savings will depend a lot on your system and how you use it. You are looking at savings in the range of 26%, especially when compared to a gas boiler. This amounts to between £500 and £1400 in savings every year.

A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside and circulate it inside a building. The system makes the air hotter before passing it into the house. The fluids inside the heat pump unit is compressed to achieve this increase in temperature. You can even use the heat from a heat pump to heat water in the house.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps offer similar savings. In fact, you will likely save as much as £400 every year, compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. It is more expensive to install Ground Source Heat Pumps. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Ground Source Heat Pumps take their energy from water and underground sources. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is caused by higher temperatures underground than in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. But air source heat pumps cost less to install. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. Air Source Heat Pumps are quite easy to set up, much like an air condition unit. Ground source heat pumps, however, will require that you dig into the ground. Therefore, make sure you have a suitable land. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are equally reliable, but they are installed differently. Call 01273 257407 for more information on heat pumps installation in Rayleigh.
What Can You Use Heat Pumps with to Heat Your Property?
Heat pumps can work with heating and cooling systems via HVAC
HVAC means Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning systems. HVAC work with heat pumps to keep your building cold in the summer months and warm in the winter months. You can enjoy year-round perfect temperature in your Rayleigh home using HVAC and a heat pump. You will not even need any extra heating sources, and will enjoy significant savings.
Underfloor heating and central heating
Heat pumps work very well with underfloor heating systems. You can regulate indoor temperature using thermostats and the control system. Get more details here.

How Do I Make Use of Renewal Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)?
The RHI programme encourages Rayleigh homeowners to install renewable heat systems. This is a government-backed initiative that also covers solar panels and heat pumps. RHI initiative is managed by OFGEM, the energy regulator in the UK. Register on the OFGEM website or get in touch with us to handle it for you. Here are what you need to apply for the RHI initiative:
- Microgeneration certification scheme number
- Your energy performance certificate open key term number
- Your bank details for Ofgem your get money to you.
Your RHI application should carry the same details as you have on your bank records. The Renewable Heat Incentive scheme will soon come to an end and another scheme may take its place. Regardless of the programme, you can always expect significant savings. To know more being a part of the RHI scheme in Rayleigh, call 01273 257407 .
Heat Pumps and District Heating and Communal Heating in Rayleigh
When you talk about district heating, you are talking about tele-heating or heat networks. District heating moves heat from one central source to commercial and residential buildings in Rayleigh.
This is a space saving technique that can heat many buildings from one source. Communal heating on the other hand involves heating a number of homes. This system is great for a small number of buildings located close together.
When it comes to cost effective district or communal heating, heat pumps are ideal. Plus, multiple homes can share the cost of installation among themselves.
Fast and easy installation
When we install heat pumps, we are fast and reliable. Of course, ground source heat pumps will require ground excavation. And this will increase the project timeframe.
