Are you currently using a traditional heating system? If so, you may be wondering if now is the right time to upgrade to an air source heat pump for heating and cooling your business premises. While air source heat pumps offer numerous advantages such as greater energy-efficiency, lower running costs and increased efficacy, upgrading from a more old-fashioned system is a big step. To help you decide if now is the right time for you to upgrade, we’ve prepared a list of questions that you should consider carefully. Answering these questions should help you gain the insight and clarity you need to make the right choice.
- Are you experiencing trouble with your current heating system?
Older heating systems aren’t always reliable. If your heating system is inefficient, faulty or requires regular repairs, retaining it may not be cost-effective. What’s more, the old system may simply be too aggravating to keep. A heating system that is prone to failure needs to be replaced. If yours is faulty, we recommend taking the opportunity to replace it with a more reliable, energy-efficient air source heat pump.
- Do you need to reduce overhead costs?
Overhead costs (including heating) can dramatically affect how profitable your business is. Old-fashioned heating systems aren’t very cost-effective. If you’re currently looking for ways to reduce overheads in order to maximise your NET profits, you should consider upgrading to an air source heat pump-based system.
- How much capital do you have available?
While reducing your overheads is important, you should also consider whether you can afford to invest in a new heating system. Air source heat pumps may be more affordable than you might think, but installing them still requires an upfront investment of capital. Make sure that you can afford to spend the money without any risk to your business before you buy one.
- Is your business environmentally-friendly?
Most businesses want to do their bit to help the environment. Not only is this morally upstanding, it also helps public relations and improves brand image. If you are currently trying to reduce your carbon footprint, investing in an eco-friendly air source heat pump is a fast and effective way to do so.
