Unlike gas and oil boilers, heat pumps deliver heat at lower temperatures over much longer periods. You may require larger radiators in some or all of your rooms. You might also consider underfloor heating.
If you are installing an ASHP to replace a gas or oil boiler, you should consider whether you should upgrade your insulation to get the most out of your ASHP. You can not claim the Renewable Heat Incentive if you do not have adequate wall or loft insulation.
Stage 1: Pre-Site Visit Survey
Pre Survey – A desktop qualification and estimation of required heat pump size, projected customer RHI Returns / Fuel Savings – (we can do this if there is an existing EPC and/or are provided with some basic customer information) – we will identify any issues prior to you instructing a full tech survey (i.e. planning constraints, insulation issues).
An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) which will be lodged and eligible for RHI Applications. An EPC dated within 2 years of the Heat Pump commissioning date is required for all RHI applications. An existing EPC from the register may be used providing that there have been no upgrades or alterations to the property since it was produced.
Stage 3: Technical Survey
Full Air Source Heat Pump Survey. Full set of photos and videos, detailed floorplans, window and radiator information. All the data needed for full heat loss calculations and system design.
Stage 4: Heat Loss Calculations
Full room by room heat loss calculations, includes heat pump system sizing, cylinder sizing, radiator change recommendations etc. ready for an installation company to use. (Only available once Stage 3 has been completed).
