low carbon heat - green homes grant FAQs

What technologies can Pure Green Energy install under the Green Homes Grant?

What is the 5 step process for the Green Homes Grant (GHG) at Pure Green Energy?

  1. Pure Green Energy will provide a desktop quote based on a questionnaire completed over the phone or by email.
  2. Once you have received our estimate, and if you wish to appoint us for the work, we will organise a site visit to assess your property and provide you with a final quote.
  3. You can use the final quote to apply for the GHG voucher online.
  4. Once GHG has issued your voucher, contact us to confirm a start date for your installation.
  5. Once the installation is completed, we will redeem the voucher to settle your account.

What is Solar Thermal?

A solar thermal panel is installed on the roof of your property to harness the sun’s heat and uses it to heat up water stored in a cylinder.

What is an Air Source Heat Pump?

An Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) works a bit like a fridge in reverse. The ASHP absorbs heat from the outside air into a liquid at a low temperature, then the heat pump compressor raises the temperature of that heat. Finally, the condenser will transfer the hot liquid's heat to your heating and hot-water systems. You can use it to warm up your home and heat your hot water.

What is a Ground Source Heat Pump?

Radiation from the sun heats the earth. The earth then stores the heat and maintains, just two metres or so down, a temperature of around 10°C even throughout the winter. A Ground Source Heat Pump transfers that heat from the ground into buildings for your heating and hot water needs.

What is the average cost of a Solar Thermal (ST) system?

Typically, an ST system will cost between £3,800-£6,000 depending on the type of system currently in your property, the orientation of your roof etc. 

What is the average cost of an Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP)?

Typically, an ASHP will cost between £7,000-£15,000. The cost will vary depending on your property, the number of occupants and whether your existing radiators need upgrading. 

What is the Average cost of a Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP)?

Typically, a GSHP will cost in the region of £20,000-£60,000. This is obviously a wide range that will vary depending on the grounds, your property, the type of system required etc.
