How do heat pumps work?

Air source heat pumps use a fan to draw in air from outside. The transfer of thermal energy is used to heat the water that supplies your radiators, hot water taps, and shower.

Though a heat pump uses a small amount of electricity to power itself, it is much more efficient than a gas boiler at doing the same job.

Britain is a match made in heaven for low-carbon heat pumps – they’re already widely used in Europe and Nordic countries where temperatures can reach -20℃.

Checking over a boiler

How much will a heat pump save you?

Kilowatt for kilowatt, an air source heat pump is more efficient than a gas boiler. Every unit of electricity that goes into powering a heat pump produces three to four units of heat. That’s a 300 to 400% return.

With an air source heat pump installation, you can reduce your energy consumption by up to 72%, shaving £££s off your heating bill.  Ask our heating engineers if your property is suitable to reap the financial gains of a heat pump.

Is my home suitable for a heat pump?

Insulation is key to making the most of a low-carbon heating alternative like an air source heat pump. Without insulation, your heat pump will have to work extra hard to replace the lost heat.

Domestic air source heat pump installation works best in homes with the correct insulation and enough room for a hot water cylinder. If you have a condensing boiler and want to switch to a heat pump, consider where you’ll store the cylinder.

Are heat pumps considered a green a sustainable technology?

Heat pumps are a low-carbon alternative to gas central heating and other systems powered by fossil fuels. Air source heat pumps don’t burn fossil fuels or emit any toxic gases directly.

If you have solar panels installed, you can power your heat pump using solar energy for a fully sustainable heating system.

How disruptive is the installation process?

Air source heat pumps are straightforward to install. The system comprises a unit outside and a hot water cylinder inside. A straightforward installation typically takes two to three days. This can vary if additional work is required – your engineer will go through this with you before you decide whether to go ahead.
