Air Source Heat Pumps
What is an Air Source Heat Pump?
We specialise in installing efficient Air Source Heat Pumps, a modern solution for heating homes. These pumps extract heat energy from the outside air and use it to warm the water circulating through your radiators or underfloor heating system.
They can also heat the water in your hot water cylinder, providing hot water for all your needs. By adopting this technology, you’ll experience substantial cost savings while contributing to a greener environment and reducing your carbon footprint.
Our heat pumps are designed to operate effectively even in extremely cold temperatures as low as -15 degrees Celsius. This means you can enjoy a warm and cosy home throughout the winter months without any worries.

A properly sized and correctly installed Air Source Heat Pump is incredibly cost-effective to run. In fact, it stands out as the most economical heating system when compared to other electric or fossil fuel alternatives. A well-installed Air Source system can generate approximately 4kWh of heat for every 1kWh of electricity it consumes. By dividing the cost of 1kWh of electricity by 4, you can calculate the running cost of the system. Here’s an interesting fact that often goes unnoticed: 100% of the heat energy produced by the Heat Pump is delivered to your property, whereas traditional boilers can lose up to 20% of their heat energy through the flue with the exhaust gases.
With an Air Source Heat Pump, you won’t need or want a traditional boiler. It’s true that Air Source Heat Pumps are often referred to as “Low Temperature” systems, but that’s when compared to boilers that typically operate at higher temperatures, around 65-70 degrees Celsius. However, it’s important to note that water at 50-55 degrees Celsius is still hot and perfectly suitable for domestic use in a dwelling. If you’re interested in receiving the Government BUS Voucher, it’s necessary to replace your fossil fuel boiler with an Air Source Heat Pump.
A properly installed Air Source Heat Pump operates incredibly quietly, almost like a gentle whisper. In fact, they are usually quieter than the flues of gas or oil boilers. The noise level generated by a heat pump is carefully regulated and covered by building regulations. As part of the Heat Loss Survey, a report should be produced to ensure that the heat pump meets the sound regulations and operates within acceptable noise limits. This ensures a peaceful and undisturbed environment for your home.
