Thinking about investing in Ground source heating, especially in view of the Renewable Heating Incentive recently announced.
Anyone any thoughts, experience? We have an oldish 4 bed house, half of it is a recent extension that is insulated beyond belief, the older half varies quite a bit. Currently no central heating at all, just a wood burner and some electric radiators. We have about an acre of land adjacent to the house.
I'm sure there was an old thread about it on here but i cant find it, perhaps it was pre-hack.
The companies touting the renewable heat incentive payments reckon installation costs will typically be recouped within 3 years and thats before considering the energy savings made.
Any idea of reliability or on costs associated with these systems?
Sounds too good to be true....should that tell me everything I need to know or is it a technology that is coming of age?
