2018 has come and gone in what feels like a blink of an eye. If like us you're wondering how you can be more eco-friendly in 2019, why not start by replacing the biggest polluter in your home - the fossil fuel boiler?
On average, 75% of a typical UK home’s carbon emissions come from the energy used for heating and hot water. You could reduce your entire home’s carbon footprint by over 50% simply by replacing your old heating system with a heat pump. What's more, you'll be earning an income for the next 7 years thanks to the Renewable Heat Incentive.
A heat pump uses naturally-occurring energy from the air or the earth to provide your home with space heating and hot water.
For every unit of electricity it uses, a heat pump can produce up to 4 units of heat. This means they can cut your heating bills by up to 75%.
By installing an air source or ground source heat pump, you will also be eligible for the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive, which pays out in quarterly installments for 7 years after installation.
Additionally, by swapping to a green energy provider, your home will effectively be running carbon neutral!
The Renewable Heat Incentive is a government scheme that's designed to promote the installation of renewable energy systems.
If you install an MSC-certified renewable energy system, you could be eligible to receive quarterly payments from the government over the next 7 years.
