There are three main types of renewable energy heating systems you can use to heat your home: air source heat pumps, ground source heat pumps, and solar thermal. If you’re looking for a heating system that’s environmentally friendly and uses less energy than traditional systems while still providing the warmth and comfort of your home, then any one of these options may be the best choice for your family.
Your air-source heat pump will transfer heat from outside to inside your home. The low carbon heating and cooling technology uses a refrigerant system involving a compressor and condenser to absorb heat at one place and release it at another.
How Air Source Heat Pumps can benefit you and your home:
A ground source heat pump extracts heat from the ground and transfers it to your home.
Ground source heat pumps are an efficient, effective way to heat your home without using fossil fuels, keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They use roughly two-thirds less energy than traditional heating systems and can save you money on your bills.
In fact, for every kW of electricity that is being consumed, the pump can produce from 3 to 5 kW of thermal energy, depending on the brand.
Solar thermal heating systems offer many benefits for your home, including:
This type of heating system is also easy to install and maintain, so you won’t have any trouble keeping them running at peak performance for years to come!
*Please note that Solar Thermal panels should not be confused with panels for the generation of electricity.
