Eon green grant-Daikin ASHP with heat store?
Today i happend to spot a mobile exhibition trailer run by Eon /Daikin so stopped to have a chat. The guy told me all about the green energy grant upto 10k and showed me and told me about the daikin ASHP and heat store cylinder set up. The HS cylinder is an unvented cylinder complete with immersion heaters. Simply put, the ASHP heats the water in the heat store. A max temp of 50c was mentioned. The heating circuit is heated via a heat exchanger from the heatstore cylinder and hot water is drawn direct from the cylinder.
I dont have any data on heat store temp with respect to differing outside air temps and how often the immersion heater(s) might have to come on to top up.
Also we talked about radiators and i was assured that the system could feed existing rads or i could have them replaced.
The other thing of course is the running time for the ASHP. Is it going to run 24/7? If not, how much off time would it have?
I currently run a 40 year old "zombie" boiler which is fully pumped ,range rated down to circa 10 Kw and it provides all our heating and HW needs. The house is well insulated and has DG and cavity wall insulation plus plenty of deep loft insulation.
I was told that the grant would cover full cost and there would be nothing to pay.
Can anyone see any drawbacks?
Am i going to end up paying more in electricity?
Feudal Britain needs land reform. 70% of the land is "owned" by 1 % of the population and at least 50% is unregistered (inherited by landed gentry). Thats why your slave box costs so much..
