The current Government subsidy for Renewable Heat, the RHI, is as high as it’s ever been meaning the income stream provided by for switching to a ground and air source heat pump is very generous.
The RHI will pay you quarterly for up to 20 years, the payments are linked to the CPI, Consumer Price Index.
The payback on the investment for the system will vary depending on the size and complexity of your installation, but typically, you should expect to see a return of around 6 years
With yearly servicing, Ground Source Heat Pumps are designed and expected to last for around 25 years.
Air Source Heat Pumps are expected to last for between 15 – 20 years.
A standard boiler, is likely to last only between seven and 10 years.
Reduced your emissions
Heat pumps generate much lower CO2 emissions, this all helps towards Climate change and enhances a businesses green credentials which looks likely to prove more and more important as the years go on.
