    What is an air source heat pump?

    Air source heat pumps harness the warmth from the air outside (even when it’s cold) and use it to heat the interior of your property. Think of an air conditioning system, just in reverse. 

    The heat pump uses electricity to power the compressor and the fan, but the heat energy it delivers to your home is much greater than the electrical energy used to power the system.

    An average ASHP system can generate 4kWh of thermal energy for every 1kWh of electrical energy it uses. This makes it a highly efficient and cost-effective heating method.

    What are the benefits of installing an air source heat pump?

    Save on your energy bills

    Air source pumps are a great replacement for traditional gas and oil boilers, as they use less fuel to run and therefore reduce your overall energy costs. How much exactly you stand to save will depend on a number of factors, including your current heating setup – but we can work this out for you! 

    Get a cooling and heating system in one

    Air source heat pumps aren’t just great for heating your home, they can act as air conditioning too! This means that you don’t have to spend additional money and space on a totally separate cooling system. 

    More environmentally friendly

    You could potentially reduce the carbon footprint of your home with an air source heat pump. This is because ASHPs harness the power of electricity, negating the need to burn fossil fuels unlike more traditional heating methods. 

    Switch to an air source heat pump today! Contact our friendly team or call 0330 124 2941 to find out more. 

    Is installing an air source heat pump worth it?

    The return on investment you can expect from a new air source heat pump will depend on several factors, including your current heating system and the energy it consumes to run. As part of our service, we will calculate how much you spend on your current system and evaluate how much you can expect to save by switching to an ASHP system. 

    The UK government are also running a Boiler Upgrade Scheme that could help you save up to £5,000 on installation costs if you are replacing a fossil fuel heating system, so it is worth checking that you are eligible. 

    If you are unsure if an ASHP system is right for your property, don’t hesitate to contact our friendly and knowledgeable team. We will be happy to advise you.

    Air Source Heat Pump FAQs

    Are air source heat pumps expensive to run?

    Not compared to fossil-fuel based heating methods. Air source heat pumps have an efficiency rating of over 300%, compared to a gas boiler which sits between just 90-95%. However, if your heat pump is not properly maintained (i.e., blocked filters or a blocked fan) this can reduce efficiency until resolved.

    Can you run radiators off air source heat pumps?

    Yes, air source heat pumps can be setup to run with radiators, underfloor heating, or a combination of both.

    Where should you not put an air source heat pump?

    An air source heat pump works best when there is plenty of space around it, so confined spaces where access is restricted are no recommended.

    Do I need a hot water tank with an air source heat pump?

    Yes. For an air source heat pump to provide hot water for your home, a compatible water tank will be required to store the hot water produced.

    Can you run a shower off an air source heat pump?

    Yes, you can run a shower (or bath) off an air source heat pump, as it can heat the water stored in your hot water cylinder.

    Do I still need a boiler with an air source heat pump?

    In most cases, an ASHP system (properly paired with the right radiators or underfloor heating system) will be suitable on its own to meet your property’s heating demands, without the need for a boiler.

    Can an air source heat pump heat my whole house?

    Yes, an air source heat pump can be used to heat most houses, provided that the unit is appropriately sized for the property and there is a sufficient heating system installed indoors.

    The size of the ASHP required to heat your home will depend on several factors, such as the size of the property and level of insulation.

    What are the disadvantages of air source heat pumps?

    Although the benefits outweigh the disadvantages, there are a few potential shortfalls to be aware of when it comes to air source heat pumps.

    For example, they can have a lower heat supply in comparison to oil and gas, so larger radiators and / or extra costs for underfloor heating might be required. In addition, the pumps can be noisy, as well as inefficient when temperatures drop below 0°C.
