Heat Pumps Cornwall

Heat Pumps Cornwall

We provide two types of Heat pumps

Ground Source Heat Pump

A ground source heat pump circulates a mixture of water and antifreeze around a loop of pipe, called a ground loop, which is buried in your garden. Heat from the ground is absorbed into the fluid and then passes through a heat exchanger into the heat pump. As the ground stays at a fairly constant temperature under the surface, the heat pump can be used throughout the year.

The length of the ground loop depends on the size of your home and the amount of heat you need. Longer loops can draw more heat from the ground, but need more space to be buried in. If space is limited, a vertical borehole can be drilled instead.

 Air Source Heat Pump

Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) are the technology of the future for UK heating and hot water, over the past 10 years heat pumps have advanced to the point that a heat pump could replace a boiler like for like heat wise. It’s more energy efficient running heat pumps at a lower ambient temperature for two main reasons first lower energy bills secondly reduce carbon emissions. Fossil fuel burning boilers were introduced in the 1950’s this old technology is now being phased out. It’s now evident that fossil fuel burning boilers are less efficient than air source heat pumps that can reduce energy bills especially when you are replacing tradition electric, oil or LPG heating systems. You could also benefit from the Government supported Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

Dc Energy is happy providing a comprehensive quote including the expected RHI payments you could be awarded.

 

About Cornwall

Cornwall, or Kernow in the Cornish language, has a distinct cultural identity and is recognised as one of the Celtic nations.  Historically, Cornwall was a globally important producer of tin and copper, and mining was the mainstay of the economy. Clay, fishing and agriculture were also important.

Today, tourism & leisure is the dominant industry. With its beautiful beaches, picturesque coastal resorts and fishing villages, and great surfing conditions, Cornwall has become a top destination for visitors. Newquay, Bude, St Ives, Padstow, Rock, Falmouth, Looe, Newlyn, Porthleven Polperro, Polzeath, Perranporth, Porthtowan, Port Isaac, Fistral Beach and Watergate Bay are among the most popular areas. The Scilly Isles, meanwhile, are a stunning a group of islands off the south western tip of Cornwall that are a luxury destination.

On the mainland, the Eden Project, Tintagel Castle, the Minack Theatre and Land’s End are among the best-known landmarks, while fans of Poldark also visit Cornwall to go on ‘the Poldark trail’. The county town, Truro, is a Cathedral city where Cornwall County Council is based. Other notable towns are St Austell, Camborne, Liskeard, Launceston, Wadebridge, Penzance, Redruth, Saltash, Torpoint and Bodmin.  The Tamar Valley which links Devon and Cornwall is another beauty spot and forms part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape World Heritage Site.

Many of the county’s best-loved sites are managed by The National Trust, including Cotehele, Lanhydrock, St Micheal’s Mount and Porthcurno, while the South West Coast Path is popular with walkers.

Cornwall is famous for its food and drink. Celebrity chefs Nathan Outlow, Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth all have restaurants in Cornwall. Well-known Cornish brands include Sharp’s Brewery
