The Reasons for Turning to Renewable Heating Systems
The world is facing a catastrophic change if we don’t begin to do more. Since the industrial revolution, we have ploughed huge volumes of Co2 into the atmosphere and now we are beginning to see the impact of our actions. That carefree attitude and assuming that everything will be fine is beginning to haunt us, so if we want to save our planet and future generations then we need to take action.
From our cars to our homes, everything that we do has some form of impact on the environment. As small as that impact might be, collectively it’s huge and so, we all have a role to play. One simple change can make a huge difference and now it is time to place our focus on our homes and our heating systems in particular.
We all need to heat our homes, especially during the winter months. After all, it keeps us comfortable, safe and healthy. So, if you’re someone who cares for the environment or someone who is considering making the switch then it can help to understand why you should make the switch.
Renewable heating systems have changed our approach to the way in which we heat our homes. In fact, schemes such as the Renewable Heat Incentive can also help people to make up their minds too. So, now you understand that there is help available through the government, you might want to consider some of the benefits too. After all, making the switch can seem daunting but once you realise the benefits, you’re probably going to want to take your search for a new system one step further.
There has never been a better time to make the change to renewables, so take a look at the following benefits and let them help you make up your mind.
For any household, outgoings and expenses are a serious consideration. Everyone has budgets and mouths to feed, so ensuring you save money is of significance. So, when it comes to renewable heating, the amount you can save will depend on your property, how much fuel you use and the boiler you have. Despite this, it’s possible to save an impressive 40% on your bill and all of that is before the tax-free subsidy payments that you receive.
The Costs Are Covered
The Renewable Heat Incentive is designed to provide households that use a renewable system with regular payments. These are in place to help offset the cost of installing the new system and running it. This means that you can begin receiving quarterly payments once the system is installed and up and running. The tariff payment is for every kilowatt-hour of renewable heat that your system produces and it is guaranteed for seven years and is free of tax.
Every household is at the mercy of energy companies, most of which increase their prices forcing households to go in search of a better deal. However, when you switch to renewable heating, you won’t be tied to utility companies and price hikes which means that you can look forward to costs that are manageable and easier to understand.
The fuels that are used are sustainable which means that they’ll never end and are always available. This means that you won’t need to worry about your fuel running out like other forms of fuel and this is something that can provide complete peace of mind.
Now Is the Perfect Time
Why wait any longer? With the right initiatives available that can help to cover the costs, it has never been a better time to make the switch. There are a range of systems available, providing plenty of options and with the summer around the corner, now is a great time to take a look. If you take action now, you’ll still be able to use the Renewable Heat Incentive which will be ending next year.
What Heating Systems Are Included in the Scheme?
You’ll be pleased to know that a number of systems form part of the Renewable Heat Incentive and this includes Ground or Air Heat Pumps, Solar Thermal and Biomass boilers. These all utilise fuels that are lower in cost and emit less carbon which makes them better for the environment.
With the net zero target on the horizon as well as the drive to remove the installation of gas boilers, now could be the right time to take the initiative and make the switch to a new system
Homeowners are still able to get a FREE boiler grant or insulation grant via the ECO scheme, which is still available to households that qualify. Warma UK are currently working throughout the UK helping privately owned and rented homes to improve home energy efficiency and save money on rising energy bills.
