Agricultural Air Source

What is it?

NIBE Air Source Unit

Air source heat pumps work by drawing in air through an electric fan to power your boiler . They have the same performance and efficiency of a ground source heat pump, typically providing 4 KwH of free energy for every 1 KwH of electrical energy you put into it. The cost of electricity to run the unit is offset by the savings in fuel bills on hot water and heating.This technology has been proven and even works in temperatures as low as -15°C.


What are the Financial Benefits of Air Source?

Through the Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive scheme you will receive a yearly index linked payment from the government for 20 years. It is paid as a reward for up taking renewable technologies that replace your existing hot water and heating system for your agricultural dwelling. Along with this you also save on your rising annual fuel bills.

The RHI pays 2.2p per KWh that your system generates and depending on the electricity needs of your farm the Air Source Heat Pump should take over 100% of those needs.
