ABOUT AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS
What is an Air Source Heat Pump?
An Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) is an energy efficient way of heating a home, and saving money on energy. This type of heat pump system is capable of extracting heat from outside of a building, and transferring it inside through the use of a refrigerant system which uses a compressor and condenser to absorb the heat.
It is Worth Getting an Air Source Heat Pump
Air Source Heat Pumps work much the same as an air conditioning unit, but are used to transfer heat into your home rather than extract it. A professional heating engineer can assess the best placement for your new heat pump system, and install them to achieve maximum heating efficiency throughout your home or office.
Heat Pumps require Electrical power to run, however, by absorbing energy from the external environment they can typically convert 1kW of Electrical Energy into 3-5kW of Heat Energy.
Additionally, you can apply for a £7,500 grant via the Boiler Upgrade Scheme.
CONNECTS TO CENTRAL HEATING
Air Source Heat Pumps can be integrated into existing heating systems.
Can Heat Pumps Work With Existing Radiators?
Air Source Heat Pumps can be installed on to an existing heating system, although some radiators may need to be replaced with a larger model to accommodate for the lower running temperatures of these heat pumps. Furthermore, we recommend aluminium radiators for use with heat pumps. Aluminium is an effective conductor and heats up very quickly. Therefore, transmitting heat into the room much more rapidly than steel or cast iron radiators.
Great With Underfloor Heating
Due to the low running temperatures of Heat Pumps they are very effective with underfloor heating systems, that are already designed to operate at these lower temperatures. Often our clients look at upgrading to the comfort of underfloor heating in their properties as part of this change. Our sister company Heated Floors specialise in upgrading homes to underfloor heating and can offer surprisingly simple retrofit options. For more information visit us at Heated Floors.
Better with Smart Heating Controls
Smart heating controls allow users to remotely control their central heating systems. It is, therefore an extremely effective and reliable way of putting the user in full control. The smart heating controls link up to the A-Rated boiler or renewable heating system to improve efficiency and reduce the amount of wasted heat. Furthermore, users can operate heating remotely by using devices such as a smart phone, tablet or a PC.
Installation of an air source heat pump is easier and less expensive to install than a ground source heat pump, as there is no distribution from external ground works. They require an external location for the placement of the unit, but can be easily connected to existing wet heating systems.
If correctly designed Air source heat pumps are suitable for most properties. We recommend you speak to our technical advisor for professional advice and a free of charge quotation and performance estimate. Discover how you can save money on your energy bills today!
What is Renewable Energy?
Renewable energy is from a source that is not depleted when used, such as wind or Solar. A fossil fuel such as oil or gas cannot be reused after it is burnt and is therefore is not a renewable energy. Visit our renewable energy page for more information – click here.
The best way to know what is best for you is for us to visit your property and advise you further. We can discuss the pros and cons of all technologies and will provide you with quotations, and performance estimates so you can make an informed decision.

How do I apply for a Grant?
Don’t worry, we are an approved business that can provide you access to Government Grants. We understand the whole process, will guide you and can apply on your behalf. We will also ensure the Grant is approved and in place before we start any work.
Do Heat Pumps Really Work?
The are many horror stories of poor heat pump insulations, which do not work correctly and cannot heat the home or cost too much to run. Fortunately, there is also many examples of where they work very well. The difference comes from the technical knowledge to design and install the correct system, as well as ensuring the property is suitable in the first place. These poor installations come from companies who do not have the experience and knowledge to design and advise correctly and are installing system in inappropriate places. Our experience and knowledge will ensure that you get the right system installed and that we will be around to support you long after installation. If your property is not right we will advise and never recommend a system which is not suitable.
Should I wait for Prices to fall?
Prices on renewable energy installations has fallen significantly over the past 10 years, as uptake increases. We believe NOW is the ideal time to look at a renewable installation, because we have seen a fall in product and installation costs, but also a rise in fossil fuel prices, whilst at the same time the Government incentive schemes are still in place. So, this might just be the very best moment to make the move. (Current in Nov 2022)
Will Fossil Fuel Prices Continue to Rise?
Sorry we cannot answer that one, as no one else can for sure either. It is certainly our opinion that they are only likely to continue to rise, as extraction becomes harder, geopolitical tensions rise and as the demand for carbon reductions grows. Whilst Renewable Energy is free once you have the technology in place to harness it!
