What we do
- Eco House Solutions has experience of installing over 500 Air Source Heat Pump systems.
- We have worked closely with our design engineers to develop a system that works perfectly in winter as well as in summer.
- We have also improved the air intake system and reduced the size & space required, making it more suitable for use in any size home.
- Our products are MCS approved and we are also members of RECC.
This makes your decision in choosing us to carry out your installation an easy one for your hot water and heating needs.
We take pride not only in our products but also in the care we take in our relationship with you the customer. To make sure of this all our installations are carried out by trained technicians, to ensure you are getting the best service and support possible.
The route to you enjoying lower heating and hot water costs is only a short step away by taking advantage of our state of the art systems.
Frequently Asked Questions
Air source heat pump or heat exchanger?
Our heat exchanger system is an air source heat pump, and this is not new technology. We have just developed and enhanced it, and market our products as heat exchangers.
Can I benefit from the RHI Scheme?
Yes, using the products we install you are elegible for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Scheme, in addition to this, you will reduce your monthly energy bills too just on consumption alone! Double savings.
Is this renewable energy?
Yes, this really is renewable energy so you save the environment too!
We are proud members of the The Renewable Energy Consumer Code (RECC) which underpins what we do.
And our heat exchangers are all Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) approved, meaning they produce heat from renewable sources.
MCS is also an eligibility requirement for the Government’s financial incentives, which include the Renewable Heat Incentive.
How much will this cost me?
Less than you would think. The costs are reasonable but vary depending on the requirements and the systems already in place, rather than give an inaccurate guide we would rather you make an enquiry where we can better understand your needs and put you at ease.
What’s the payback period?
On average customers save 81% on their gas, oil and LPG bills, with no increase in electricity consumption. With this huge saving and with energy inflation you will get a return on your investment very quickly.
- What’s more, we guarantee your saving
We will save you money, not just reduce your gas/oil/LPG and then increase your electricity consumption.
For central heating and hot water, we separate the systems, this means both units work most effectively, only when needed, and with each other.
All of our heat exchangers use advanced refrigerant to gasify at lower outside temperatures and have redeveloped and improved the compressor and pump technology.
Will it work in winter?
Of course, our advanced refrigerant can still work to -15 degrees C outside air temperature. We are the only system that saves you money in summer AND winter.
Will I also need to replace my existing heating system?
No, we incorporate this into your existing system, although we will barely use the boiler.
A heat exchanger actually solves many heating issues…
- We clean your entire system on installation
- Cleaner radiator water will increase efficiency of radiators/underfloor heating
- Heat exchangers don’t generate the debris a boiler does so less sludge and less corrosion
- Water isn’t overheated, so no bubbles, means no air in the system
Questions are sometimes asked about noise levels. In terms of the inside unit it is very quiet and will similar to your fridge freezer when it is in heating mode. The outside noise level complies with strict EC regulations.
How does this technology work?
Our heat exchanger system utilises outside air which circulates around a refrigerant liquid turning it to a gas. The gas is then compressed, which makes it extremely hot. It is then transferred to heat the water through a heat exchanger. The gas then turns back to a liquid once more and the whole process continues until the water reaches 60 degrees.
The system activates automatically when the water cools by 3-5 degrees, meaning it is most unlikely you will ever run out of hot water. The system includes a stainless-steel water cylinder which is more than sufficient for your needs.
The volume of hot water is also very important. The more hot water you have then the more you can use without noticing a drop in temperature. This means our system can be busy heating the water while you continue to run a bath. This is something that our on site engineers will discuss with you.
The Heat Exchanger for Central Heating (located outside) works in the same way but heats your radiators or underfloor system instead of water in a cylinder.
The process is run by heating controls and thermostats and only activates when required. It is very efficient and importantly self regulates its performance to minimise the electricity used to provide heat. The existing boiler is linked to the system only to assist when ‘our system’ realises it may have to overwork - thus keeping running costs down.
