Air Source Heat Pump Installation Service Christchurch

Situated on the picturesque River Avon, Christchurch has a lovely coastal atmosphere while also being surrounded by flourishing green countryside. Aside from its charming and historic town centre, it is in close reach of other beauty spots such as Mudeford and Highcliffe Beach. Christchurch’s 48,000 residents have many reasons to be proud of their home town, and there is a real drive to preserve its natural environment.

Christchurch is governed by BCP Council, who, in partnership with Dorset Council, received £4.3 million in March 2023 to upgrade local homes with low carbon heating and other energy-efficient measures. The aim of the investment is to combat fuel poverty and work towards the county’s net zero target by 2050.

If you live in Christchurch, Dorset and are looking to cut your energy bills as well as your home or businesses’ carbon emissions, then Cinergi can help. We are experts in domestic and commercial renewable solutions, such as air-source heat pumps and solar panels. For more information and to arrange a quote, please get in touch.

What is a Heat Pump?

Heat pumps have been available for several years, but are only recently gaining popularity in the world of domestic heating. This is partly because of the continuous development in technology, and also due to increased government backing through the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS).

There are 2 popular types of air source heat pump:

  • Air source
  • Ground Source

Both types operate on the same principle, but as the name suggests, extract their energy from different sources. There are other types of heat pump (such as water source) but these are far less common.

What are the Benefits of Air Source Heat Pumps?

Reduced Fuel Bills

Depending on your current heating fuel source, installing an air source heat pump could reduce your heating energy bills. Typically, the largest savings are seen when replacing oil, LPG (common in more rural areas of Christchurch), electric, or old/inefficient natural gas boilers.

Reduced Carbon Emissions

Air Source Heat Pumps do not burn fossil fuels and are powered solely by electricity. As a result, switching to an air source heat pump can drastically reduce your home’s carbon emissions, especially when coupled with a ‘green’ energy tariff.

Minimal Maintenance

An inspection is required every 12 months in order to ensure the heat pump is operating correctly, and to maintain the relevant guarantees . This is unlike a gas or oil boiler service which is more onerous. Cinergi can offer maintenance contracts for the Christchurch area.

Easier To Install

Air Source Heat Pumps are easier to install than ground source heat pumps, and provide less disruption to the occupiers. A typical installation generally takes between 2 to 5 days, depending on the amount of work and adaptions required to the property.

WHAT GOVERNMENT GRANTS ARE AVAILABLE?

The Green Deal and The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (DRHI) are now closed and have been replaced by the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS). As of October 2023, the BUS provides grants of £7,500 to incentivise home and small non-domestic property owners to replace fossil fuel heating with low-carbon alternatives, including heat pumps.Renewable heating systems commissioned on or after 1 April 2022 may be eligible. The closing date for applications is 31 December 2027. See if you are eligible for a BUS grant here.
