Air Source Heat Pumps

The Renewable Way to Heat Your Home

An Air Source Heat Pump is a heating technology designed to keep your home warm with renewable energy. It can provide your heating and hot water by using the air outside to draw warmth into your home. It works by extracting heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can even absorb heat from temperatures as low as -15 degrees. With a heat pump your home will maintain a constant comfortable air temperature, designed specifically with your needs in mind.

THE BENEFITS OF AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS

  • A heat pump is eligible for the Renewable Heat Incentive, meaning you will paid for the renewable heat that you generate over 7 years. You can be paid up to £1600 per year.
  • A heat pump produces no carbon emissions on site and none at all if paired with a renewable source of electricity.
  • Heat pumps are safe as there is no combustion involved and no emission of potentially dangerous gases.

We design your radiators to heat your home to building regulation temperatures, however if you have specific requests on how warm you want your home we build this into your design.

Our installations usually take 3 -5 days and we make sure that before we leave you’ve had a full run through of your new heating system. The time of install will depend on the size of your property and if there is already an existing central heating system that we can connect on to.
