Heating Systems

High Heat Retention Storage Heaters

High heat retention storage heaters optimize off-peak electricity, storing it in ceramic bricks for consistent warmth. With customizable time and temperature controls, they minimize utility bills, decrease carbon footprint, and demand minimal maintenance. Particularly advantageous in off-grid locations, these heaters provide cost-effective, eco-friendly, and comfortable heating solutions, ensuring a steady and even distribution of heat for enhanced comfort throughout the day.

Air Source Heat Pumps

How does an air source heat pump work?

An air source heat pump takes heat from the air and boosts it to a higher temperature using a compressor. It then transfers the heat to the heating system in your home. They work a bit like refrigerators in reverse. The air source heat pump absorbs heat from the outside air into a liquid refrigerant at a low temperature. Using electricity, the pump compresses the liquid to increase its temperature. It then condenses back into a liquid to release its stored heat. Heat is sent to your radiators or underfloor heating. The remainder can be stored in your hot water cylinder. You can use your stored hot water for showers, baths and taps. The pump uses electricity to run, but it should use less electrical energy than the heat it produces. This makes them an energy-efficient way to warm your home. Air source heat pumps work even if the temperature is well below zero.

An air source heat pump is a low-carbon way of heating your home. Air source heat pumps look similar to air-conditioning units. Their size depends on how much heat they’ll need to generate for your home – the more heat, the bigger the heat pump.

Most home heating systems either burn fuel or convert electricity into heat. But heat pumps are different because they don’t generate heat.

Instead, they move existing heat energy from outside into your home. This makes them more efficient. Since they deliver more heat energy than the electrical energy they consume. So a heat-pump system can cost less to run than a traditional fossil fuel heating system.

Air source heat pumps are one of the most efficient appliances on the market to heat your home. With traditional boilers running at 90% efficiency rates, you are losing 10% of heat through the burning of fossil fuels to create the heat. Heat pumps on the other hand have an efficiency rating of around 350%. We expect that fuel prices will rebalance in time, which will make the running costs on a par or even cheaper what you’d typically pay for your existing heating system. When you weigh up the environmental benefits against the fossil fuel options – heat pumps are the better choice.
