Running Costs

Highly efficient technologies, air source heat pumps provide lower running costs than most traditional heating systems.

Based on the heat demand and energy efficiency of the property, this 11.2kW Mitsubishi Ecodan is predicted to cost less than £600 a year to run. At current energy prices, this represents a £300 annual saving over oil heating.

The Renewable Heat Incentive

Air source heat pumps are eligible for government incentive through the Renewable Heat Incentive. Basically, the RHI pays customers for every kilowatt of renewable heat generated by their system over a period of 7 years. MCS accredited renewable heating solutions installed by MCS accredited installers are eligible to access the RHI scheme.

Based on the predicted heat demand of the property and the efficiency of the 11.2kW Mitsubishi Ecodan installed by GreenGen, this customer is set to earn in excess of £5,000 in RHI payments.

Carbon Reduction

By opting for a renewable solution, the environmental impact of this new dwelling is reduced. As a result, replacing demand from harmful fuels such as gas and oil with free, clean heat from the air creates a reduction in the carbon out of the building.

Over 3 tonnes of CO2 output will be saved each year thanks to this air source heat pump installation.
