MARKET HARBOROUGH, England, July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- Renewables Guide sees a rise in demand for installation quotes for air source heat pumps.
Renewables Guide is at the forefront of the renewable energy wave which is gaining more and more momentum. With the Government extending its Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme to a 2nd phase back in May of this year, the lead generation specialist is already seeing a rise in the number of quote requests it generates on its site from home and business owners wishing to explore the options and costs of installing renewable energy technologies.
In particular, Renewables Guide is experiencing a considerable uplift in the number of enquiries it receives for air source heat pump installations, which interestingly coincides with figures published by The Energy Saving Trust. In the 1st phase of the scheme air source heat pumps led the way in the number of vouchers issued for users to claim one off grant payments if they install one of the qualifying renewable technologies.
One of the main thoughts behind the current popularity shown in air source heat pump installations is not only the ease in which they can be installed when compared to technologies such as ground source heat pumps, but the little amount of maintenance required once the technology is installed is also making them very appealing.
David Holmes, Renewables Guides' Founder commented, "The various Government initiatives to incentivise people to install renewable technology is certainly helping businesses like ours and the industry as a whole. It is clearly very instrumental in enabling home and business owners to afford installing and using renewable technologies, so it is incredibly important these schemes continue into the future, especially if the country is to hit its EU renewable energy targets".
The popularity in air source heat pumps is primarily from home owners for domestic dwellings, from a commercial/industrial perspective there seems to be a greater uptake for biomass boilers according to figures published by regulator Ofgem E-Serve who administer the current Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme for businesses.
