John Egan Heating & Plumbing supply and fit innovative, efficient heat pumps in homes and businesses throughout Dublin and Wicklow. Heat pumps generate power by extracting heat from the air or ground outside of your property and transferring the heat indoors at a warmer temperature, making it an extremely efficient and cost effective heating method.
These pumps require electrical energy to operate because an electric motor drives the compressor, which is why it is important that all installation work is carried out by a fully qualified technician, such as those at John Egan Heating & Plumbing. For roughly every unit of electricity used, three or four units of heat are produced, making it extremely energy efficient.
Although the initial cost of installing a heat pump is greater than the cost of conventional fossil fuel boilers, homeowners who utilise heat pumps can avail of savings on energy (up to 30pc cheaper to run than gas and oil boilers) as well as grants offered by the SEAI to offset the additional costs.
The SEAI currently offer a grant of €3,500 towards the cost of installing a heat pump system in homes built before 2011.
