Renewable Heat Incentive RHI Calculator Tool
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government payment to encourage uptake of heat pumps. If you have a heat pump installed in your home that uses renewable energy, like ours do, you may become eligible. The amount of heat your renewable energy system is likely to produce is measured and used to decide the sum of your fixed payment from the government. Another factor that is taken into account is the type of technology and the size of the system.
For a full explanation of the RHI, please click on the video link below. Ultimately, it means you can earn a fixed income for every kilowatt of heat you produce. To get an indication of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payment you may be entitled to, the fuel cost savings you might make and the payback period for your capital investment in a heat pump, please use the RHI Calculator Tool link below.
The RHI calculator tool will ask you to answer a series of questions about your property and your existing fuel type. Most of these questions you will be able to answer immediately. You will, however, be asked for the ground floor area of your property in square metres, so you may wish to give some thought to this before opening the tool.
The calculator tool uses a series of default values relating to alternative energy costs and the technical specifications of the heat pump system. You do not need to concern yourself with these if you do not want to, but if you are interested in finding out what these are, please click on the RHI Calculator Tool FAQ link below.
Finally, please remember this RHI Calculator tool only gives an indication of costs and benefits of a heat pump for your property (although we have gone to some lengths to try and make the figures as representative as possible). An accurate assessment can only be made after a site survey, which we will be happy to arrange if you contact our office. You can call us on 01303 248648.
