Energy SolutionsHeat Pumps
At CAESL we can offer an efficient solution to heat your home or business and reduce your heating bill.
With the UK banning gas boilers in new homes from 2025, the need for alternative heating methods is growing rapidly. Heat pumps offer a lower carbon solution to heating your home or business space by using electricity to generate heat rather than burning gas. Heat pumps work by transferring heat from one point to another through the use of a special refrigerant liquid. This liquid is heated by the air or another source (the outside temperature does not need to be high!) which turns it to a gas. The gas is put through a compressor which causes the temperature to rise further. This heat can then be passed through the central heating system of your house or business, warming it up.
There are multiple types of heat pumps but the main two types are air source and ground source heat pumps. As the names suggest, air source heat pumps use the heat in the air to run the heat pump, whilst ground source uses the heat in the ground. The specific system you may need will vary based on your requirements and energy usage, however systems can be fully tailored to your individual needs. At CAESL we can offer an efficient solution to heat your home or business and reduce your heating bills, based on an intensive and comprehensive AI based analysis of your current usage and demands.
These systems can be a particularly green solution when paired with renewable energy, such as solar panels on your house or office, which can greatly reduce utilities bills both in the short and long terms.
- Reduced carbon emissions, and the potential to be 100% carbon free if paired with renewable energy generation systems
- Provides cooling as well as heating
- Long life span
- Lower running costs, particularly when gas prices are high
- Less maintenance compared to traditional heating methods
- Eligible for the RHI scheme
Why should you invest in a heat pump?
Heat pumps are a smart investment, and can help you save up to 30% on your energy costs.
Frequently Asked Questions
How heat pump works
Heat pumps do not create warmth. They redistribute it from the air or ground, and use a refrigerant that circulates between indoor fan coil (air handler) unit to outdoor compressor in order transfer heat outwards into your home’s environment
What are the different types of heat pumps?
The three main types of heat pumps are air-source, ground-source, and water-source.
Air-source heat pumps use the outside air to extract heat from the house and transfer it to the outdoor unit. This type of system is best for climates that have moderate winters.
Ground-source heat pumps use a loop of pipe buried underground to extract heat from the earth and transfer it indoors. This type of system is best for climates with harsh winters where there is an abundance of groundwater or where there is an excessive amount of snowfall in the winter time.
Water-source heat pumps use a loop of pipe buried in water to extract heat from water and transfer it indoors. This type of system is best for climates with mild winters where there isn’t much snowfall during winter time or where groundwater isn’t available nearby.
How much space is needed for a heat pump?
In most cases, residential heat pumps are installed in a utility room or garage. A recommended area for your new device will be around 1 x 3 metres (3 cubic feet).
How much do heat pumps cost in the UK?
The cost of a heat pump ranges from £12,000 to 17 thousand pounds. You will have additional expenses such as installation fees if you are installing new underfloor heating or an air distribution system so factor these costs into your budget too!
How long does a Heat Pump last?
Heat pumps are the most reliable form of heating. With long lasting warranties and low breakdowns, they’re an excellent choice for your home or business!
The typical 20+ year lifespan is impressive when compared with 15 years typically seen in gas fired boilers and even outdoor units!
With maintenance requirements similar as those of traditional systems – periodically checking tubes/hoses for leaks or debris build-up among other things – there isn’t much difference between them outside bad weather conditions which might reduce longevity slightly more.
