Usually situated on the building’s exterior, air source heat pumps extract outdoor air and utilise compression along with two conductive copper tubing coils for air transfer.
When warmth is needed, one of the coils contains liquid refrigerant that absorbs heat from the air, causing it to vaporise and transfer the heat to the other coil.
The gas subsequently condenses back into a liquid state, generating warmth for the household heating system in air-to-air heat pumps.
Let’s look at the benefits of air source heat pumps below…
Air source heat pumps (ASHPs) present numerous advantages for homeowners seeking an energy-efficient, environmentally conscious, and cost-effective solution for their home’s heating and cooling needs.
Before installing an air source heat pump, it is important to determine if your property is suitable.
For an accurate assessment of the ideal unit placement, heating requirements, and project timelines, an on-site survey is highly recommended.
The installation process typically takes 5 working days and does not require groundworks.
The unit is bolted to the ground or brackets connecting it to the property, and then connected to the hot water cylinder. Larger radiator units may be needed to replace existing radiators.
From initial enquiry to ongoing service and maintenance, we are available to answer questions and guide you through the installation process.
Earn Money by Generating Heat
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) is a government-backed financial incentive program aimed at encouraging households in the UK to transition to renewable heating systems. Starting from April 1, 2022, eligible homeowners can receive a government voucher to offset the expenses associated with the installation of renewable heating systems, such as air source or ground source heat pumps.
The Boiler Upgrade Scheme extends to anyone retrofitting an air source or ground source heat pump in a single domestic property, provided that a recent Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) contains no insulation recommendations, with some exceptions. The scheme is also open to self-build properties, but it doesn’t cover new-build installations. To be eligible for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, your system must be installed by a certified professional with the appropriate training and accreditation under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).
