To understand the existing energy performance of your home you should consider engaging the services of a BHESCo energy assessor. A holistic energy survey of the property will help to uncover where heat and energy are being wasted and identify opportunities for improvements.
Our experienced team can recommend the most cost-effective energy efficiency measures to increase heat retention in your home, which in turn will reduce the size and cost of the heat pump required.
By combining information obtained from an on-site survey with data from your energy bills, our energy specialists can calculate the heat load of your property and specify an appropriately sized heat pump to meet your expectations.
For larger properties, such as for an entire block of flats, the BHESCo team can conduct a feasibility study, taking into consideration the requirements of residents collectively and individually. We will present a range of options, including the scope for energy efficiency improvements, and provide details of expected financial and carbon savings for a variety of low-carbon heating scenarios.
We can make conclusions about which combination of technologies will best meet the heat and power requirements of your property, as well as providing anticipated cost and future savings projections to help you make an informed decision.
Furthermore, our expertise and familiarity with national energy policy can identify any financial support mechanisms available which could make your energy project more economically advantageous, e.g the Renewable Heat Incentive or (from April 2022) the Boiler Upgrade Scheme.
Choosing to install a heat pump may well require some additional upfront costs associated with planning and system design, but over the long term, this will be far outweighed by the reward of owning a highly efficient heating system able to deliver sustainable heat at the lowest cost.
