The costs associated with owning and operating a home increase every year. More and more people are searching for ways to reduce their monthly outgoings and make savings that they can put toward their future, or use to increase their disposable income.
The costs of home heating are often one of the largest regular expenses that families need to pay, and this is leading many people to switch from traditional home heating solutions, like traditional water boilers, to more energy-efficient home heating systems, like a heat recovery ventilation unit.
Here in this quick guide, we are going to look at just a few of the ways that a home heat recovery ventilation unit can save any family money while they heat their home.
They Are Energy Efficient, Saving You Money on Heating Bills
The biggest savings a home heat recovery ventilation unit offers is in the cost of home heating. By using highly-efficient technology like heat exchangers, heat recovery ventilation units use a lot less energy than their traditional counterparts.
Heat recovery ventilation units draw fresh air in from outside the home, filter it though high-quality HEPA air filters, and heat it using excess heat from outgoing stale air that would usually be wasted. By doing this, the unit uses less power to heat the air. Technology like this can represent huge savings on energy for home heating throughout the year.
They Are Quick and Easy to Install, Often Cheaper than Traditional Systems
Replacing, repairing or installing a traditional home heating system can be very disruptive, time-consuming, and costly. Installing a home heat recovery ventilation unit, however, is incredibly quick and easy; most installations take less than two days.
Heat recovery systems use ducting to pipe the air around your home, which is hidden in cavity wall spaces, with vents in skirting boards to get warm air into rooms. The heating system itself is lightweight and is usually installed in the roof space of your home. Though the technology is very advanced, it is also very inexpensive compared to the price of a water boiler and its installation.
They Increase the Amount of Space in Your Home, Increasing Property Value
The traditional home heating systems that we are all used to take up a surprising amount of space in a home. Not only is there a water boiler taking up space, usually under the stairs or in a bathroom, but there is also all the pipework and radiators they use.
A heat recovery ventilation unit is compact and can fit in any small attic or loft space. The engineers at BPC Ventilation have decades of installation experience and can tailor a system to your home that will give you some space back from your old water boiling system.
Every year, heating and energy bills increase, and the pressure to reduce yours and your family’s energy consumption and carbon footprint increase too.
By switching to a heat recovery ventilation unit for your home heating, you can save hundreds a year, and reduce the amount of carbon your home produces every year.
