MCS Heat Pump Installations In Gillingham
The Reina Group are highly experienced in installing MCS heat pumps, and we cover the Gillingham area, as well as Kent as a whole. MCS stands for Microgeneration Certification Scheme and it is a quality mark that is accredited to eligible heat pump systems and suppliers. MCS accreditation gives you assurance that your heat pump will work efficiently and that your installation will be completed to the highest quality. Should anything go awry, which we’re sure it won’t, the Scheme is there to provide consumer protection. Choosing a MCS heat pump is one of the eligibility criteria to receive the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive for your new heat pump system.
We understand that choosing a green energy option such as a heat pump is a big financial commitment. Heat pump installation is more costly than regular gas or electric heating, however there are savings to be had in the long run, particularly if you are replacing electric heating or night storage heaters. Heat pumps use a minimal amount of electricity to operate and draw warmth from nature.
There are two main types of heat pump systems that we supply and install in Gillingham: air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps. Air source heat pumps are located on the outside of your property and use a fan to draw in air. Warmth in the air is turned into hot water, which circulates around your wet central heating system. As the name suggests, ground source heat pumps extract heat from the ground via coils of liquid-filled tubing. The ambient warmth is turned into hot water using compressing technology, similar to that used in a fridge. Heat pumps work best with underfloor heating or large, modern radiators.
