Given our climate here in Scotland, heating is not an optional extra in our workplaces. It’s critical for many months of the year to provide a comfortable environment for your customers and staff and to ensure that productivity levels are not affected by the time of year and the temperature outside.

While heating is essential, it is also a big expense. Indeed, for many Scottish organisations, heating can account for as much as half of total energy costs.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

There are big cost and carbon savings, and productivity benefits, to be had by retiring old heating systems before they finally cough and splutter to a costly end.

Now might just be the perfect time to upgrade to a heat pump

Put simply, a heat pump is a device that takes heat from an external source, be it the outside air or the earth from the surrounding grounds, and does some clever stuff that makes it ready to use as heat in your business. They can even produce heat for your business when the temperature outside freezing.

The most common heat pumps are ground source, air source and water source.

The Scottish Government is currently providing financial support to help Scottish small and medium-sized businesses upgrade to modern, energy efficient heating systems. This includes unsecured interest-free loans and cashback grants of up to £20k while funds last.

This financial support is available for the installation of heat pumps  – and is particularly attractive for air source heat pumps.

 

Join this webinar to:

  • Learn how a heat pump works.
  • Understand the benefits a heat pump provides (financial, operational, carbon).
  • See if a heat pump could be a potential energy saving solution for your business.
  • Find out typical installation costs.
  • Hear from businesses that have already taken action.

Who should attend?

Heat pumps can be a great choice in many different businesses – from factories to offices, shops to holiday parks, care homes to community halls. The key factors that determine if a heat pump is a feasible option, and which type of heat pump will be best, is more to do with the conditions on site.

This webinar is for anyone in your organisation who is interested in or who has responsibility for operational cost, environmental performance, energy efficiency and staff wellbeing.

Particularly ideal for:

  • Business owners and directors.
  • General managers.
  • Healthy, safety and environmental managers.
  • Environmental performance champions.
  • Facilities managers.
