Mr & Mrs A own a 4 bedroom detached home in Leavening, a village off the gas network. Their existing oil fuelled boiler was coming to the end of its life and they were looking to replace it with a more environmentally friendly and sustainable heating system, that would save them money and reduce their carbon footprint.
The couple had already had a Solar PV system installed previously and wanted to maximise the benefit of their solar energy.
Green Building recommended a 15kw Vaillant Air Source Heat Pump, which would complement their Solar PV system and offer them large savings on their energy bills, whilst allowing them to become more self-sufficient and less reliant on the grid.
Green Building provided a thorough quote outlining the cost of works and the financial incentives they would be entitled to apply for. The system would cost them around £11,500 to install but they would receive over £10,000 back over 7 years from the Renewable Heating Incentive. In addition, they would make savings of around £477 per year on the running costs of their Heat Pump compared with their existing Oil Boiler.
In short, over 7 years the system would cost them nothing, in fact even with the radiator adjustments they would be over £1200 better off.
