Is an air-to-water system suitable for me?2019-07-20T10:11:00+00:00

To tell if an air source heat pump is right for you, there are a few key questions to consider:

Do you have somewhere to put it?

You’ll need a place outside your home where a unit can be fitted to a wall or placed on the ground. It will need plenty of space around it to get a good flow of air. A sunny wall is ideal.

Is your home well insulated?

Since air source heat pumps work best when producing heat at a lower temperature than traditional boilers, it’s essential that your home is well insulated and draught-proofed for the heating system to be most efficient.

What fuel will you be replacing?

The system will pay for itself much more quickly if it’s replacing an electricity or coal heating system. Heat pumps may not be the best option for homes using mains gas.

What type of heating system will you use?

Air source heat pumps can perform better with underfloor heating systems or warm air heating than with radiator-based systems because of the lower water temperatures required.

Is the system intended for a new development?

Combining the installation with other building work can reduce the cost of installing the system.

What is an air-to-air system?2019-07-20T10:09:06+00:00

An air-to-air system produces warm air which is circulated by fans to heat your home. They are unlikely to provide you with hot water as well.

What is an Air to Water System?2019-07-20T10:07:48+00:00

An air-to-water system distributes heat via your wet central heating system. Heat pumps work much more efficiently at a lower temperature than a standard boiler system would. This makes them more suitable for underfloor heating systems or larger radiators, which give out heat at lower temperatures over longer periods of time.

What is Masonry Crème?2019-06-26T21:15:00+00:00

Masonry Crème is an invisible insulation barrier.

A surface treated with ProPERLA Masonry Crème will insulate mineral building materials by reducing water absorption. The product chemically bonds to the surface, penetrating up to 17mm to create an invisible insulation barrier.

What does super hydrophobic mean?2019-06-26T10:38:16+00:00

It means water cannot stick to the coated surface but forms droplets that run off the surface.

Tests have shown that a damp content of 5% in a plain brick wall, for example, can lower the insulation performance by up to 50%, especially where cavity wall insulation has been installed. Porous building materials, such as natural stone and brick normally have good insulating properties as they have air filled cavities, which offer low thermal conductivity, but only when they are dry.
