Air Source Heat Pumps

What is an Air Source Heat Pump?

Most homes can benefit from having an air source heat pump system and we can establish if your home is suitable too. Air source heat pumps are particularly effective for under floor heating but can also be used for radiators and convector heating systems. We are here to make the whole process of switching to renewable energy as easy as possible and our expertise and experience makes sure you get the most effective system.

70% SavingsWhy use air source heat pumps in your home?

  • save up to 70% on energy costs
  • reduce your CO2 emissions

  • very low maintenance costs compared to traditional boiler systems.

Air Source Heat Pumps are set to transform the way we heat our homes and hot water over the coming years. An Air Source Heat Pump can be easily installed into a new build property as well as into an established property looking to save money on its heating costs on a retro-fit basis. They have low running costs and high efficiency, providing a very cost effective alternative to condensation boilers and oil heating.

An air source heat pump works by extracting heat from the ambient air and through a system similiar to that found in refrigeration units, compressing the air to raise the temperarture and then releases it into your homes radiators, underfloor heating systems, or warm air convectors.

Despite utilising the heat found in the surrounding air, Air Source Heat Pumps are designed to work effectively in temperatures as low as 20c.

As the Air Source Heat Pump is less dependant on fossil fuels they help to reduce your homes carbon footprint by producing less carbon emissions. As the source of the heat is generated by the sun, the heat pumps are classified as a renewable source of heating. To encourage the domestic and commercial use of Air Source Heat Pumps the government has recently introduced the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), providing users with financial incentives.

The purpose of the RHI is to help the UK towards their 2020 ambition of having 12% of heating coming from renewable source. The RHI is the first of its kind in the world.
