Ok I’m interested. But what is a heat pump?

Heat pumps are an efficient and green way to heat your home & hot water. These are excellent alternatives to gas & LPG heating systems as they run on electricity, not gas – perfect for off grid & rural homes.

Heat pumps work by taking the ambient heat from outside air and compressing it to make it hot. This heat is then used to warm your home and your hot water.

Heat pumps are more efficient than alternative types of heating such as gas boilers, oil, LPG, coal and electric storage heaters – as a result, they are much cheaper to run.

Due to their efficiency, heat pumps are considered “green” technology and are eligible for government incentives, the Renewable Heat Incentive or RHI. This incentive is paid directly to the home owner on a quarterly basis and is calculated by how much energy you use – the more you use, the more you get paid!

Heat pumps can have high initial installation costs, but pay for themselves over time. Suns Energy also have finance options so there may not be any up front costs for your installation.
