Why Consider a Viessmann Air Source Heat Pump?
Save Money on Energy Bills
For every 1kW of energy an air source heat pump uses, it produces 3kW of energy. When you consider that even the most efficient boiler is only 92-93% efficient (losing the remaining 7-8% of energy through waste gases), it’s easy to see where the energy bill savings come from.
Lower Carbon Footprint
Using free air to heat your home and hot water rather than fossil fuels like gas and oil will significantly lower both your impact on the environment and your energy bills. Although heat pumps use a small amount electricity to run they can cut a home’s carbon emissions by as much as 50%.
Easy to Maintain
The average life of a boiler is just 8-10 years but as long as your air source heat pump gets an annual service it should need very little maintenance and many can last for up to 25 years.
Heat Your Home All Year Round
Air source heat pumps by Vaillant will work in the worst UK temperatures as they are designed to cope with temperatures as low as -10°C.
Advanced Acoustic Design
The height of advanced acoustic design and modern technology, Viessmann heat pumps are almost inaudible during operation. Viessmann use the most advanced components and compressor technology to deliver quiet running, low vibrations and an extremely long life without the need for maintenance.
Smart Control Convenience
Many Viessmann heat pumps can be controlled via a smart device with the Vitoconnect control unit and free ViCare app so you can stay on top of your energy use wherever you are.
Earn Money Through the RHI Scheme
The RHI scheme pays owners of eligible renewable heating systems for each unit of energy the heat pump generates for 7 years after it has been commissioned. The exact payments you’ll receive will vary depending on the current tariff, the technology installed and how much energy you generate. When installed by an MCS accredited company, an air-to-water heat pump could earn you money through the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme.
How Much Does a Viessmann Air Source Heat Pump Cost?
The average cost of installing an air source heat pump system is around £6,000 – £12,000. Of course the price you’ll pay will depend on the model and size of the heat pump you choose and which company to carries out the installation.
If you’re deterred by the upfront cost remember to think about the long term gains. Once the installation is completed you can look forward to many years of energy savings and potential earnings through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme which will go a long way towards repaying your investment.
