If anyones thinking of getting a heatpump its worth considering that RHI's will be along soon and heatpumps are included.

Get an approved heatpump with a certified installation ( facepalm  banghead) and you could be onto a nice little earner.
Looks like being paid around 9p a unit heat out.

COP of 3 then could presumably mean spend 10p a unit to run it get paid 27p for using it!

RHIs could well change the landscape for heatpumps dramatically.

Possibly the additional expense of a certified install will make it all a bit of a gamble until the details are finalised though.

ps. RHI = Renewable Heat Incentive, a scheme by which you can be paid for the heat you produce provided its from an approved source.

Why do I feel that nuclear will be a (very) approved heat source?

if the ASHP scheme thing is true (and I don't disbelieve it for a second, coming as it does from the same blithering nincompoops who gave grants for roof-mounted chocolate teapots), how long before we're paid a subsidy for using "straight" electric fires?
They may yet make "economic" sense, but until we have totally renewably generated "mains", I fear they can never be anywhere near being considered as truly "green" whistlie

Indeed, but imagine the certification process for our home brew domestic reactors!

Sadly I feel the paperwork may be the stumbling block for home based reactors.  whistlie  Wink

Didn't someone post a link to a japanese home based nuclear thermal electrical generator?
