In light of the recent government energy bill crisis, you are probably already aware of how important it is to save money on heating during the cold winter months. Your winter heating bill represents a significant percentage of your business’s overheads, so reducing it is always advisable. You may think that you don’t need to worry because you don’t spend very much money on heating during the warmer half of the year. However, this isn’t necessarily the case. Luckily, investing in an air-source heat pump for heating and cooling can help you save on both your winter and summer heating bills.
In today’s blog, we’ll look at the heating costs you might incur and discuss how air-source heat pumps can help to alleviate them.
Why You Should Use Air Source Heat Pumps Over Conventional Heating Systems
What If You Need To Keep The Heating on For Extended Periods of Time?
Large office buildings and similar premises don’t always retain much warmth overnight, even during the hottest part of the year. This is simply because thermal energy tends to dissipate in large spaces. Employees who happen to be working late may turn on your heating system if your premises gets cold at night, even during the summer. Luckily, an air source heat pump can harness residual thermal energy from outside your premises to heat it during the night. This is much cheaper than using a conventional heating system to warm up a building at night. Installing an air-source heat pump won’t stop your employees from turning up the thermostat during a chilly summer or spring night, but it will help you keep the resultant heating bill under control.
How Do I Create a Warm, Dry Environment For Employees While Keeping Costs Low?
Providing your employees with a warm and dry working environment, especially during the winter, may come at a significantly high cost considering the recent energy bill increase from the government. If you’re still relying on a conventional heating system, this can incur even bigger costs. Air source heat pumps can produce enough heat to help your employees keep warm and cosy without using too much power or costing you a lot of money.
How To Deal With Cold Temperature Snaps Whilst Remaining Cost Effective?
While sudden and unexpected periods of cold weather tend not to occur during the middle of summer, they are surprisingly common throughout spring and can even be a problem in early summer. During a cold snap, turning on your heating system becomes imperative, even if it happens during the warmest part of the year. Making sure that your heating system is driven by an air source heat pump instead of conventional heaters can make cold snaps less costly, however.
