41 Willow Garth’s Heating System
41 Willow Garth’s heating is generated by an air sourced pump which saves on average £455 to £485 per year combined in electricity and gas bills (*Sourced from Energy Saving Trust, figures based on fuel prices as of April 2017.) Only last year it had its main part fully replaced (see attached invoice) so is in excellent working order. There is also a CO2 saving.
What is air sourced heating system?
Heat pumps move heat from one place to another by using a compressor and a circulating structure of liquid or gas refrigerant, through which heat is extracted from outside sources and pumped indoors.
Pumping the heat uses less electricity as compared to when electricity is solely used as a means to convert it.
Advantages of Air -sourced Heating Systems
1. Lower Running Costs
Heat pumps are cheaper to run than systems based on combustion. The more energy efficient the systems are, the greater long term savings on energy. Despite the fact that the prices of ground source heat pumps can go up to even £20,000, this friendly environmentally investment can help you save up to £1,400 per year.
2. Less Maintenance
Heat pumps require less maintenance than the combustion heating systems. Regularly, once a year, some certain details of the system have to be checked, which could be easily accomplished by yourself. A professional installer, on the other hand, has to check every three or five years.
Heat pumps are safer than combustion-based heating systems.
4. Carbon Emissions
Heat pump system reduces your carbon emissions and it has an efficient conversion rate of energy to heat.
5. Long Life-Span
The life-span of heat pumps is relatively long, up to 50 years, however the average life-span is somewhere between 14 to 15 years which compares well to gas boilers. They are exceptionally reliable and steady source of heat. 41 Willow Garth has regular services and its main part replaced only last year so is in excellent health
1. High Upfront Cost
Heat pumps have a large upfront cost, but on the other hand, their operating costs translate to long-term savings on energy bills and lead to a path of reduced carbon emissions. 41 Willow Garth has already had its pump fitted so this does not apply.
2. Difficult to Install
Heat pumps are fairly difficult to install considering that research must be made in order to understand the movement of heat, local geology, specifically for ground source heat pumps and the heating and cooling requirements for your household. Again, this doe not apply because it has already been fitted.
3. Questionable Sustainability
Some of the used fluids for heat transfer are of questionable sustainability and thus raise environmental concerns, therefore it is recommended to use biodegradable fluids. 41 Willow Garth uses those fluids provided by the manufacturer.
4. Significant Work
The installation process requires significant work and disruption to your house and garden. A pertinent example would be that penetrations have to be made through the building cladding. Again, this has already been done.
5. Cold Weather
Some heat pumps experience issues in cold areas, which can ultimately damage the system, thus full heat pumps efficiency in the cold weather cannot be reached. Although, there are possibilities of an upgraded heat pump system that surmounts this problem. To do this with the Willow Garth System simply press the blue button during times it may freeze which switches to frost free mode.
6. Carbon Neutral
Heat pumps heavily rely on electricity to operate, implying that they will never be entirely carbon neutral. However, since heat pumps are electric, they represent a perfect fit for solar applications. This is an effective carbon free model. Coupled together with solar panels, heat pumps could lead to a zero net energy.
7. Planning Permissions
Special planning permissions are required in Wales and Northern Ireland, whilst in England and Scotland, it depends on your location and size of your property. Yes, planning permission was obtained.
The heat pump makes a low hum in the garden when in operation, but if it bothers you it can be turned off, and during the summer months when you are in the garden, it is unlikely you will have the heating on anyway.

What if you still prefer gas?
Just outside 41 Willow Garth is the gas mains. Available are quotes from companies showing it would cost approximately £994 for the pipework to be fitted to the house. The only other costs would be the boiler and water tank as the existing radiators and pipework could be used.
