There are plenty of changes that you can make in your home to be a green citizen and to help produce more clean energy. One brilliant alternative is to have an air source heat pump installation installed and reap the benefits of the renewable heat incentive (RHI) scheme
Here’s a list of our top tips to ensure that your air source heat pump installation goes down smoothly.
1. Turn the Flow Temperature Down
The first thing to do is to acquire an efficient medium of low-grade temperature straight from your heat pump to all the rooms in your home. Here, when we speak about lowering the flow temperature of the heating system, make sure that you lower it down as much as possible. This will help reduce the running costs and improve the RHI payments you receive.
To make the most of your heat pump installation, ensure that you have highly efficient radiators installed. These will work alongside the system to cut down on your energy bills. Alternatively, you can install an underfloor heating system that is properly designed to fit your property and distribute heat evenly everywhere.

2. Finding the Right Heat Pump Size for Your Home
The next thing is to understand the extent of heat loss in your home in the cold winter months using CIBSE or BSEN12831 standards. Depending on your findings, you can now proceed and find the correct heat pump size ideal for your home.
With air source heat pumps, it is essential to ensure that the heating system can provide sufficient amounts of energy at minimum outdoor temperature. At JL Phillips, our expert installers will inform you about the capacity tables for ‘integrated’ or average energy value to ensure that the heat pump works just fine even in extreme temperatures.
3. Power and Space Requirements
Ensure that you have sufficient space for the fan unit that’s to be installed outdoors. Its usually fixed away from the garden and social areas. Also, check if you have adequate electricity available on your fuse board to power this additional appliance. In case of any confusion, consult your electrician.
4. Product Accreditation
At JL Phillips, along with having the proper accreditation ourselves, our heat pumps come with the proper credentials as well. The heat pumps you choose from us are listed on the micro-generation certification scheme. This will ensure that you receive professional installation services from us along with consumer protection. Most importantly, you will be eligible to receive government subsidies under the RHI scheme.
