*Saving of £350 is based on information provided by the Energy Saving Trust for a typical three-bedroom house heated by oil. Comparison is made using an oil boiler with an efficiency rating of 82% and an Air Source Heat Pump with an efficiency rating of 300%. CO2 saving of 27% based on1.6 tonnes (average UK household energy related carbon emissions is 5.9 tonnes) is based on a comparison made using an oil boiler from Energy Saving Trust figures. Actual savings for a particular household will vary depending on the size and construction of the house, and the way the occupants use the heating system and appliances. Figures based on the EDF Energy Standard Tariff average regional electricity price of 13.2p per unit (including VAT) and do not include any allowance for future price increases.

** Figures are based on information provided by the Energy Saving Trust and are taken from the recent field trial of 88 properties using Solar Thermal Hot Water systems across the UK. Typical savings from a well-installed and properly used system are £55 per year when replacing gas heating and £80 per year when replacing electric immersion heating; however, savings will vary from user to user. Typical carbon savings are around 230kg CO2/year when replacing gas and 510kg CO2/year when replacing electric immersion heating. According to the Energy Saving Trust a correctly sized Solar Thermal Hot Water system can deliver most of your hot water needs during summer.
