A heat recovery system with all ductwork can cost from £1000 upwards. However, due to the reduced heating demand, your initial investment could be paid back within 5 years.Also, the systems cost pennies to run coming in at around 10p per day.
Certainly, this is dependent on various factors such as the size of your house, number of wet rooms etc. but overall because there is a constant supply of recovered warm air your energy costs are reduced as the environment is kept constant.
There are considerable savings to be made for those of you that may consider installing a system yourself. BPC offer comprehensive, pre-made DIY kits. To give you an example, a 130 m2 house with three bedrooms, kitchen and two bathrooms would cost you only £1090 +VAT for an Airflow Kit.
Alternatively BPC can offer a complete installation service to any location in the UK or ROI.
Without doubt a heat recovery system will save you money on your energy bills. A system in a domestic property can recover up to 95% of heat loss, therefore, saving you up 25% on your heating bills compared to using window trickle vents and bathroom fans.
One thing to keep in mind when thinking about a heat recovery system, in the next few years energy prices are certain to increase so a system which reduces your costs is sure to be a benefit.
