Does the installation cost include an upgrade of the whole heating system?
No, we have covered a few issues that you will encounter but not the cost of replacing emitters (radiators). MCS heat pumps are suitable for a variety of properties, particularly new build properties or those currently without central heating.
The actual cost of having a ground or air source heat pump system installed will depend on your individual circumstances. The RHI calculator tool exists to give you a general idea of costs. Contact us for a full quotation.
In the case on some retrofit schemes it may be necessary to replace your radiators as the “flow” temperature from a heat pump is circa 450C compared to around 800C for an oil or gas boiler.
This shouldn’t cost too much and is considered when you receive the RHI tariffs – we are able to offer you a full package from heat pump setting up through to either UFH (underfloor heating) or radiator installation.
