Renewable Heat Incentive

Would you like to reduce your energy costs AND receive a quarterly tax-free payment from the Government?

The cost of installing renewable technology is generally more expensive than installing traditional fossil fuel burning systems.

The Government has set up two schemes – The Domestic RHI and the Non-Domestic RHI.

The Domestic RHI scheme was launched in April 2014, and is eligible to owner/occupiers, landlords and self-builders; for installing the following renewable technologies in their properties:

  • Solar thermal panels
  • Air source heat pumps
  • Ground source heat pumps
  • Biomass boilers

The amount of money paid to you from the Government is dependent on which technology you install – Click here to find out how much you could potentially receive (with no obligation) –

Solar Thermal Hot Water Systems

What’s more, solar water heating can provide up to 60% of your annual hot water requirements.

The benefits of solar water heating

  • Hot water throughout the year. The system works all year round, though you’ll need to heat the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months.
  • Reduced energy bills. Sunlight is free, so once you’ve paid for the initial installation your hot water costs will be reduced.
  • Lower carbon footprint. Solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and can reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.

How do solar water heating systems work?

Solar water heating systems use solar panels, called collectors, fitted to your roof. These collect heat from the sun and use it to heat up water which is stored in a hot water cylinder. A conventional boiler or immersion heater can be used to make the water hotter, or to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable.

At South West Plumbing we fit the highly efficient Worcester-Bosch Greenskies range of solar thermal systems.

Air Source Heat Pumps

Air-to-Air Heat Pumps – an efficient way to heat your home without relying on burning fossil fuels.

An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -15° C. The heat they extract from the air is constantly being renewed naturally.

The benefits of air-to-air heat pumps

  • Lower fuel bills, especially if you are replacing conventional electric heating
  • Lower home carbon emissions, depending on which fuel you are replacing
  • No fuel deliveries needed
  • Minimal maintenance required
  • Up to 500% efficient
  • Can also provide cooling in the summer
  • Inbuilt air purification – ideal for allergy sufferers
