Heat pump technology has been used around the world for decades and Mitsubishi Electric have developed this technology to produce Ecodan – one of the most advanced, efficient heating systems available today. The Ecodan heat pump range is suitable for small to large applications, be that domestic or commercial.
Heat Pump Information
Heat pumps are an economically and environmentally beneficial addition to your heating systems. In fact under new building regulations (Part L, 2013) they are obligatory in every new house to ensure all energy use is split between conventional and renewable sources. There have been great technological advancements in the field of renewable energy in the past few years and especially in the area of heat pumps. Previously heat pumps focused on geothermal energy and ground-source coils however the most common systems now in use are air-source heat pumps. These work using reverse refrigeration transferring energy from outside to inside a building and can result in huge savings over the use of conventional fuels. These pumps take up very little space even compared to normal boiler requirements. They consist of a unit the size of a small fridge coupled with a wall mounted piece similar to an extractor fan and so are suitable for installation in nearly any building. Here at Leinster Heat Pumps, through our extensive experience in installing and ensuring the maximum efficiency of heat systems, we have developed an innovative system for combining solar energy and heat pumps to deliver huge savings, both to you and the environment, on your hot water and heating system requirements. This system is designed to provide you with free energy, utilising the ambient air heat and solar energy it copes specifically with the Irish climate to give clean, green and cheap hot water all year round. • Uses natural ambient heat in environment • Delivers a great return on investment • Latest technology from major manufacturers like Bosch, Dimplex and Dunstar • Provides hot water all year round • Efficient and clean replacement for conventional fuels • Can be combined excellently with solar source systems to deliver even greater savings Whether it is a new house, a commercial premises or an existing residence we can provide a heat pump system solution for all of your hot water needs and for a relatively small initial outlay you can make massive savings on your regular bills through using naturally occurring energy sources.
Houses built after 2005 are likely to be heat pump ready
Houses constructed after 2005 are generally well insulated and have a low heat loss. This makes them heat pump ready. If you are replacing a boiler or thinking of renovating your home, we strongly recommend you install a heat pump rather than a gas or oil dependent system.
€3,500 grant for heat pump upgrade announced
The Minister for the Environment and Climate Change announced a new government grant to support the installation of heat pumps in Ireland. The grant of €3,500 toward the cost of installing an air to water heat pump will be available from April 2018.
The grant combined with the savings in home-heating bills for the installation of a heat pump will act as a huge incentive for homeowners to invest in upgrading their heating systems. The cost of heating a home and providing hot water with an air to water heat pump for a year is in the region of €1000 – this can be further reduced by upgrading insulation levels in the house.
There are few details available a the moment but we will keep this page updated with more information on the heat pump grant once it is available. If you would like us to contact you when more details are available please send us an email by clicking on the button below. Alternatively we have set up a dedicated website where we will publish all the information required when available please see here: www.heatpumpgrants.ie
