    Hi all,

    Going to be replacing my ground sourced heat pump soon. Wondering what KW i will use per day if it is working right (current one is not healthy).

    We could perhaps have a standard format post on the thread;

    House size (metres or Sq feet)

    BER Rating

    UFH or radiators

    Pump type - air or ground

    Pump Size

    pump model

    Daily KW usage

    Daily cost/electricity provider or plan

    We're also looking to replace our clapped out GSHP so any real life info would be great. We've upgraded the insulation along with TG windows in our gaff and it's made a huge difference, not quiet new build quality but heat loss over over a 12 hour period of no heat is 1 degree, seeing the stat in the kitchen go from 21c to 20c. Currently using a back up oil boiler to heat the house and dhw but wanna take advantage of the increase SEAI heatpump grant and get a new one. Any suggestions would be gratefully received, currently looking at Heliotherm and Waterfurnace brands.
