We now supply and install air source heat pumps!
But what is an air source heat pump?!
Air source heat pumps (ASHP) are an energy efficient way of heating your home and hot water. The system extracts thermal energy from the outside air and converts it into heating and hot water inside the home. They do this using the refrigeration cycle used in air conditioning systems.
Because they are powered by electricity there is no need for a gas supply. This could give huge savings on a new build and is a perfect solution for rural homes without gas mains.
If you’re replacing an electricity, LPG or an oil heating system they could lower your fuel bills and reduce your running costs and carbon emissions.
You could also be eligible for a grant when you replace your boiler with a heat pump. The Government have now launched the RHI (renewable heating incentive) which means you could actually get paid for having an air source heat pump!
Do you have somewhere to put it?
You’ll need a place outside your home where a unit can be fitted to a wall or placed on the ground. It will need plenty of space around it to get a good flow of air.
Is your home well insulated?
Air source heat pumps work best when producing heat at a lower temperature than traditional boilers. It’s essential that your home is insulated and draught-proofed well for the heating system to be effective.
What fuel will you be replacing?
The system will pay for itself much more quickly if it’s replacing an oil, electricity or coal heating system.
Heat pumps may not be the best option for homes using mains gas.
What type of heating system will you use?
Air source heat pumps can perform better with underfloor heating systems or warm air heating than with radiator-based systems because of the lower water temperatures required.
