Air Source Pumps

Renewable Technologies – Air Source Heat Pumps
What is an air source heat pump (ASHP)?
Simply put, an air source heat pump uses heat energy from the air and converts it into energy to heat homes. Heat pumps are ‘air-to-water’, which means that they extract useful heat from the outside air, and transfer it into ‘wet’ heating systems such as radiators or underfloor heating.

How does a heat pump operate?
Heat pumps use the same thermodynamic principles as refrigerators and the most commonly used system is the vapour compression cycle. Outside air is drawn in through the heat pump evaporator coil where the refrigerant is exposed to this air. The liquid refrigerant evaporates to a gas and absorbs the heat energy within this air. The gas is then compressed to increase the heat content before passing through a heat exchanger. Here, the gas condenses back to a liquid, while the heat is transferred to the water of the heating system.

About the Boiler Upgrade Scheme

The Government is providing grants towards the cost of buying an air source heat pump, and eligible homeowners will get £5,000 off the price of installing one.
As a Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) accredited installer, we’ll administer the grant with Ofgem on your behalf, and deduct the grant amount from your full heat pump system quote.
This makes it easier for you to reduce your carbon output and enjoy the savings of a heat pump in a quicker time.

Could reduce annual bills

Heat pumps are around 3 to 4 times more efficient than LPG, oil, electricity and gas boilers. So you could benefit from annual savings on your energy bills.1

Boost your clean credentials

With the Government’s target to ban gas boilers in new builds by 2025, an ASHP ensures your heating system’s renewable and environmentally friendly.2

Provides extra comfort

With an air source heat pump, you’ll have a fully-controllable heating system, providing your home with extra warmth, hot water and comfort whatever the weather.

Heating system upgrade

Benefit from a new hot water tank, radiator upgrades (if needed) and smart heating controls, from a system that requires minimal maintenance to generate heat all year round.
