MCS Heat Pump Installations in Maidstone
The Reina Group provide heat pump installation across the Maidstone area. We are a locally-based company who are approved by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) to supply and install heat pumps. We only use heat pump systems that have also been given the MCS mark of approval, known as MCS heat pumps. The MCS scheme gives consumers piece of mind that they will receive a high quality unit with the best quality installation. Here at Reina, we appreciate that choosing a heat pump is a big financial commitment so we are here to help you through the process from start to finish.
Many properties in Maidstone will be suitable for MCS heat pumps. You need to have an energy efficient home that is well insulated with minimal draughts to achieve the highest rates of efficiency from your heat pump, which are the greener, and in many cases cheaper, alternative to conventional heating methods. Using MCS heat pumps and suppliers also allows you to qualify for the government’s RHI payment (subject to further eligibility criteria). Choosing a heat pump reduces your home’s carbon footprint and reduces your reliance on our finite resource of fossil fuels.
The two main types of heat pumps available are ground source heat pumps and air source heat pumps. Ground source heat pumps extract warmth from the ground via tubes laid in trenches or a borehole, if you have less room. Air source heat pumps extract heat from atmospheric air; the unit is placed outside your home and draws air into it with a fan. Both require a significant initial investment but over time the savings in your energy bills will help the systems to pay for themselves.
