Heat Pumps
You are here:

Heat Pumps offer lower heating costs and reduced carbon emissions, making it an attractive alternative to oil and gas heating systems.

Heat Pumps are simply the most energy efficient and cost effective way to heat your home. Powered by electricity, they are devices which extract air from outside your home or business and transfer it indoors at a warmer temperature. In well insulated buildings they are very economical to run. They are a much more efficient alternative to gas, oil, and solid fuel home heating systems.

Arc Heating and Plumbing Services, we supply, fit and install heat pumps in all areas including Ratoath, Ashbourne, Blanchardstown, Navan, Swords, Malahide, Santry, Finglas, Ballymun, Drumcondra, Santry and all over Dublin.

Homes with heat pumps installed are up to 30% cheaper to run than gas boilers and oil boilers. Heat generated by heat pumps is released via underfloor heating, radiators or warm air and can supply all of the hot water required for showers, baths and sinks.

A relatively new technology to Irish homeowners, heat pumps have significantly lower emissions and require little maintenance and have a longer lifespan than conventional fossil fuel boilers. Heat pumps are more expensive to purchase and install than conventional fossil fuel boilers.

As they are a low carbon alternative, homeowners can avail of SEAI grants to offset the additional cost. Currently the SEAI offer a grant of €3,500 towards the cost of installing a heat pump system in homes built before 2011.

To get the best performance from heat pumps, it’s recommended that your home is well-insulated and relatively airtight. SEAI also offer insulation grants for your home.

Heat Pump System Types

Air Source

The most popular heat pumps are air to water heat pumps. These extract heat from external air, usually using a unit outside the house. These heat pump systems do not require underground piping to source heat and therefore can be less expensive and easier to install compared to ground source heat pump systems.

Ground Source

The ground stores a vast amount of energy from both rainfall and solar radiation. A ground source heat pump or a geothermal heat pump uses the earth as a source of renewable heat. Heat is extracted from the ground through collector pipework and transferred to the heat pump.

Water Source

Water source heat pump systems use open water such as rivers, streams or lakes as a heat source. Heat is removed from the water through pipework and then transferred to the heat pump.
