Mitsubishi Electric has launched a dedicated Ecodan selection tool to coincide with the Government’s announcement that heat pumps are now included in the non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
The new Ecodan selection tool allows anyone to examine the viability of heat pumps for their building and shows both running cost comparisons against other technologies and payback periods, which take the RHI payments into account.
John Kellett, general manager of the company’s heating division, said: “We have built this tool to allow anyone to access the relevant information for their project, whether they are a homeowner, a consultant, a contractor or an individual business.”
“There is a mass of information concerning RHI and we wanted to ensure that people considering their options can cut through all this so that they can access all of the information needed to allow them to find the best solution for their own individual situation.”
The Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) has recently announced the inclusion of non-domestic air to water heat pumps and ground to water heat pumps in the RHI scheme, with respective tariff levels of 2.5p/kWh and 7.2p/kWh equivalent (Tiered tariff with 8.7p/kWh for the first 15% of energy delivered and 2.6p/kWh for any remaining).
