What we do
- Eco House Solutions is experienced in selling Air Source Heat Pumps.
- We have partnered with Viessmann to install a system that works perfectly in winter as well as in summer.
- We are proud of our energy saving products, contributing towards reducing climate change using new technology. As a result our installations are elegible for RHI payments
- 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 Viessmann 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?
A heat exchanger system is an air source heat pump, and this is not new technology. We have partnered with Viessmann, marketing their advanced products.
Can I benefit from the RHI Scheme?
Yes, using the products we install you are elegible to apply for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Scheme.
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 pumps 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.
Why are you different from other systems out there?
Benefits of a Viessmann air source heat pump installed by Eco House Solutions over a traditional fossil fuel boiler come from its efficiency, and comfort due to using weather compensating controls. These detect the temperature outdoors and adjust how hard the heatpump needs to work in order to provide enough heat to keep the house at the desired temperature but never too much. Our Viessman heatpump uses its weather compensation controls to maintain the temperature of the home at its optimum efficiency but when it recognises that the hot water in the tank needs a boost then it stops using weather compensation and provides the full 60C to heat the water storage, then returns to its weather compensation mode for maintaining the temperature of the home. Two systems working as one - both focusing on their respective jobs, and saving money.
Will it work in winter?
Of course, our advanced refrigerant can still work to -20 degrees C outside air temperature. We will save you money in summer AND winter.
Will I also need to replace my existing heating system?
No, we can 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 pumps 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. The unit it is exteremely quiet when it is in heating mode. The outside noise level complies with strict EC regulations.
How does this technology work?
Our heat pump 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 up to 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 pump self regulates between heating and hot water and uses its weather compensation controls to maintain utmost efficiency. 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.
