Generate renewable heat and hot water.

We are proud to offer our customers the future of home heating. Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) are quickly becoming the main heating source for domestic houses in the UK. Fossil fuel burning boilers were introduced in the 1950’s and this old technology is now being phased out. Heating our homes accounts for a massive amount of our total carbon emissions – it has been proven that heat pumps are more efficient, and they are much better for the environment.The government recently announced that boilers will be banned in all new houses from 2025, and homeowners will be unable to replace their boiler with a fossil fuel boiler when they need a replacement system.

Now is the best time to make the switch to clean heating – while the government incentive of the RHI still exists. Take advantage of up to £12,000 of tax free money – rather than waiting until it’s mandatory to install a heat pump but there is no rebate or incentive for doing so!

How does a heat pump work? Using a small amount of electricity and air, very similar to how a fridge works – but in reverse

STEP 1

The heat pump absorbs heat from the outside air

STEP 2

The pump compresses the air to increase it’s temperature

STEP 3

The heat is transferred to your radiators or underfloor heating

STEP 4

The heat also travels to your hot water tank

STEP 5

You control the temperature from the LG thermostat

STEP 6

You enjoy cheaper, greener heating & hot water

FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

Air source heat pumps have a sound level of approximately 50 decibels at 1 meter. This is equivalent to an average dishwasher or the sound of a light conversation. From the inside, ASHP’s generally can not be heard, unless sited near an open window.

In terms of efficiency they can run as high as 400% efficient , for every 1kw of electrical energy consumed  by the heat pump upto 4kw of heat is delivered.

This depends on output temperature of the heat pump, the lower the better – for instance a well designed underfloor heating system can run at 35 degrees and a 400% efficiency which is cheap to run,  however a poor radiator system running at 65 degrees can be just 270% efficient – costing more to run.

A well insulated property is important regardless of the heating source. The less insulation there is, the more heat will be required.

Yes air source heat pumps generally provide all your heating and hot water demands, they can heat domestic hot water up to 60 degrees, which is plenty hot enough ( bathing temp is 35-40 degrees).

Air source heat pumps are suitable for most properties, up to certain size and layout levels. ASHP’s are most popular with off-gas properties, though many people choose to install them when mains gas is available. Most suitable for properties off the gas grid.

Air source heat pumps are classed as permitted development if;

  • there are no wind turbines and there is only one air source heat pump on site
  • the installation passes a noise calculation
  • the property is not a listed building
