“We live in an off gas area of Dunbar. Previously we heated our home with electric storage heaters which are not very flexibly way to heat a family home. We decided to install our air source heat pump over a year ago with the help of a BeGreen renewables grant.
The air source heat system is more flexible and cost effective to run. Our total energy bill is now just £17 a month to heat our 2 bed roomed house. We have a 10 hour cheap electricity rate over 3 periods in any 24 hours. Only twice when it was below -10C did we have to use supplementary heating. This is quite rare however.
BeGreen helped enormously not just with funding, which was a great incentive, but also helped with acquiring other sources of funding and recommendations for our insulation needs. Altogether a very helpful service without which I probably would not have gone ahead with our heat pump!
If you are thinking about installing an air source heat pump I cannot emphasise enough to anyone to insulate your home first. This will help retain the heat in your home longer and help keep your energy bills down”.
