Return is calculated using combined bill savings and subsidy earnings. Bill savings are calculated using estimated energy usage and either the electricity price at the time of installation (10 November, 2013) or, for our heating products, the existing fuel type available to the property.
This new self-build property is off the mains gas grid so the owner was looking for a cost effective off-grid heating system to provide long-term lower cost energy bills.
As the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive includes private self-build properties, as long as they are being built for the client’s own use, EnergyMyWay were able to recommend a heating solution which would pay for itself from the government subsidy.
After consultation with the client, EnergyMyWay reviewed the benefits of an Air Source Heat Pump or a Biomass Boiler but settled on Biomass due to the size of the property, availabile storage for fuel and local availability.
A number of different models were considered before settling on a Viessmann unit. This state-of-the-art Biomass Boiler supplies hot water and heating to underfloor and radiators via a buffer cylinder.
