As we know, Air Source Heat Pumps are powered by electricity, so to get the most out of your Air Source Heat Pump you are going to want to get the best deal when it comes to your electricity. Most reputable energy companies are realising the importance and growing popularity of these systems and are planning on bringing in special energy tariffs for customers using a Heat Pump to heat their home. Green energy company Good Energy have already released their first Heat Pump tariff which includes low unit rates during the winter where the system would have to work harder and also no standing charge for the winter months as well.
This will hopefully be just the start of an energy tariff revolution for energy companies in which tariffs are adjusted to make responsible green energy available to the Heat Pump owner at a very palatable price. The number of Heat Pumps in the UK is expected to double by 2025 making this the prime opportunity for energy providers to lay the foundations of their future tariffs. CEO of Good Energy Julia Davenport said – “This tariff will be designed to make it as easy and affordable as possible for people to get rid of expensive gas and oil heating their home and start using clean electricity from renewables.”
This major leap forward is just one of the many incentives for installing an Air Source Heat Pump, such as the governments Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and the Green Homes Grant. Lower energy tariffs and incentives like these make this the ideal time to install an Air Source Heat Pump to lower your energy bills, gain cheaper electric rates and get paid by the government for going green.
