What are the running costs of a heat pump?

Water-source heat pumps typically provide around 4 units of heat for each unit of electricity. In other words, if you pay 16 p/kWh for electricity, the cost of heat will be around 4 p/kWh. This is slightly cheaper than gas and heating oil, and significantly cheaper than LPG or all-electric heating.

To convert your heating oil usage from p/litre to p/kWh, divide by 10.3. For example, 50 p/litre = 50 / 10.3 = 4.9 p/kWh.
To convert your LPG usage from p/litre to p/kWh, divide by 6.9. For example, 50 p/litre = 50 / 6.9 = 7.2 p/kWh.

Are you considering a water source heat pump project ?

Renewables First have considerable experience and full project capability, from initial feasibility study through to system design and installation.

The first step to develop a water source heat pump project is to conduct a Free Initial Heat Pump Assessment.
