New air source heat pumps make the grade

Tuesday, 20 August 2019 08:41

Here at isoenergy we specify equipment that we have tested thoroughly in our demonstration plantroom. We do this to make sure the performance of the heat pump is going to be what we expect it to be. Rather than just relying on manufacturers’ often-generous, specification and efficiency figures, we install each type of unit on our own heating system then collect real-world data on its performance.

Planning Permission for Non-Domestic RHI installations

Tuesday, 13 August 2019 07:22

The non-domestic renewable heat incentive has been helping early adopters see a return on their investment in renewable energy for the last eight years. It is due to close to new entrants in March 2021 and there is currently no plan to replace it. So it seems a little strange that Ofgem are now, at this stage, demanding planning permission for ground source heat pumps to be eligible for the subsidy.

Heat pump running costs fall with new electricity price cap

Thursday, 01 August 2019 08:37

Ofgem has announced that the price cap on domestic electricity and gas is to be reduced from October 2019. The latest cap will mean that households on standard variable, default or pre-payment tariffs will pay around £75 a year less, with an estimated 25 million households across the UK benefiting.  

Heat pumps cooling down?

Friday, 26 July 2019 14:19

International Energy Association figures released in May 2019 show that there were nearly 18 million heat pumps installed globally in households in 2018. This compared to a figure of 14 million domestic installations in 2010 shows a 29% increase in an 8 year period. This success, however, falls within the context that only around 3% of heating in buildings globally is provided by heat pumps and currently the main driving factor for installations in many countries is cooling rather than heating.

Solar PV SEG-way to the future

Friday, 12 July 2019 09:26

On the 31st of March 2019 all subsidies for Solar PV were removed. This move by the government has resulted in many domestic households with Solar PV providing electricity to the grid without compensation. The government have responded to this situation with the planned introduction of the Smart Export Guarantee (SEG) tariff.

How can I save money on my pool heating?

Friday, 05 July 2019 08:49

We are often asked to provide the heating system for outdoor swimming pools, either from a ground source heat pump that is being installed to heat the house, or from a dedicated air source heat pump.  Pools in the UK climate generally need heating to reach a comfortable temperature of about 28oC reliably in all but the hottest periods of the year.

UK 2050 Emissions Targets, where does your home fit in?

Tuesday, 18 June 2019 14:54

On the 12th June 2019 the UK pushed greenhouse gas emission reduction to the forefront of public consciousness with the government announcing that Britain would be “net zero” by 2050. This historic announcement sets a far more ambitious goal than the previous target that proposed an 80% reduction by the same year.
