RHI will fail to attract support unless focus changes – OFTEC


I find this article and OFTEC's comments absolutely laughable. The way it has been plastered on every energy site on the internet is a clear attempt to try and put people off heat pumps. I have an Air Source Heat Pump and it replaced my Oil Boiler in 2010. Since then i have cut my bills from 2900 per annum to approx £1500 and that is with constant heating rather than just morning and evening. Hopefully most people are intelligent enough to realise that OFTEC are just bitter. Heat Pumps are the future and for those on Oil it is a no-brainer even without the RHI. I have a friend who installed a Ground Source and their savings are even bigger than mine. Providing you go with an MCS accredited company that get the design correct then it will never not make sense. OFTEC saying it would work better with Hybrid systems that still tap in to Oil - Of course they would say that - Perhaps they just dont understand what the R in RHI stands for. Idiots.
