Air Source Heat Pumps

Air source heat pump

Air Source Heat Pumps (ashp) are becoming an increasingly popular choice for homeowners who are looking to install renewable energy solutions in their home.
Renewable solutions such as our range of air source heat pumps are one of the most economical, and eco-friendly heating solutions on the market and help homeowners not only to reduce their carbon footprint, but to significantly reduce their heating bills.

Suitable for the heating and hot water needs of houses as well as apartments and flats on the first floor and up.

  • Suitable for specification in a wide range of properties
  • Can be integrated into domestic heating systems with minimal disruption
  • ErP rated A+ to A+++ for hot water and heating efficiency
  • Government grants are available to help with the cost of installation
  • Prime Minister announces Boiler Upgrade Scheme grant increase to £7,500

What are air source heat pumps?
Air source heat pumps are an excellent piece of kit and a new type of low-carbon heating in the UK!
They have superior technology inside that extracts the heat from the air outside – even during the winter!!!! – Then uses it to keep things lovely and toasty inside your home, just like a boiler does!

Gas boilers have done us well, but the next generation of heating is here.
Heat from the air, producing green energy power. 4x more efficient. 73% less carbon emission compared to gas or oil

Less energy: Heat pumps use 4 to 5x less energy than the most efficient boilers to generate the same amount of usaable heat.
Less carbon: That efficiency means you’ll instantly slash your heat carbon footprint by 73%. Plus, they run on electricity, which gets greener every year, plus if you have a solar PV installation the cost saving can be huge!
Less maintenance: A heat pump can last 25 years – over twice as long as a boiler.

Green Energy Homes heat pumps start from £5,000 for a standard installation (including the government grant). For larger, more complex homes, they may cost more.

Air source heat pumps
Cheaper and easier to install than ground source heat pumps
Slightly higher running costs
The heat pump unit is quite small
Can work in temperatures as low as -25°C
Can require planning permission on some occasions.

Heat pumps can save you a lot of money in the long run. They provide heating, hot water and can be coupled up with other technologies such as solar thermal (Sun energy to heat hot water) and solar PV systems (Sun energy to provide electricity) meaning free electrical energy – free heating, free hot water.
These systems are here to stay and the way forward to become carbon neutral and stop burning fossil fuels.

How to get a heat pump, the 5 steps:

1) Get a free estimate from a qualified engineer
2) Full heat loss survey carried out by qualified heat assessor and BUS grant applied for
3) Book in for heat pump installation to start, carried out by fully A level trained installers
4) Full commissioning, testing, handover and BUS grant claimed
5) Completion of works

Ready to go greener with a Heat Pump?

Heat pumps are the low-carbon future of home heating. And we have been installing them in customers homes across London, Hertforshire, Essex & Kent.

Greener, cleaner heat – Air source heat pumps use a smaller amount of electricity, so they’re a low-carbon form of heating.

A heat pump generates about 3.5kWh of heat for every 1kWh of electricity used. That’s 350% efficiency.

Air source heat pumps should last for at least 20 years – longer than the average lifespan of a standard gas boiler.

Get up to £5000 for an air souce heat pump or £6,000 grant from the government for a ground source heat pump.

Air source heat pumps can be a sustainable and economical way of heating up your home – but they’re not right for everyone and every building type.

Request a FREE quote and our Green Energy Homes team will give you a call to check your home’s suitability.
We’ll visit you at home for a site survey where we’ll talk you through the options and give you a quote.
When you’re happy with the quote, your heat pump system will be installed by our expert engineers.

Heat pumps work effectively even when the outside temperatures are -15°C, although they are a bit more energy efficient at warmer temperatures.

Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps. As the names suggest, ground source heat pumps get heat from the ground, whilst air source heat pumps get it from the outside air.

Replacing gas boilers with greener, cleaner alternatives is the drive forward of the UK’s plans to reach Net Zero by 2050. So the government is offering to help people who want to make the switch to greener heating today! Read More…

A heat pump works differently to a gas, oil or LPG boiler does. It uses the heat found in the air outside air of your home – plus a small amount of electricity – This is then converted to supply your home with all the heating and hot water it needs, all year round! When it’s installed in an energy-efficient and well insulated house, an air source heat pump is up to 500% efficient compared to a normal gas boiler which is roughly 60-90% efficient. Air source heat pumps are an environmentally friendly approach to a gas-powered boiler. That’s excellent news for your carbon footprint on the environment – and for the UK’s continued progress to Net Zero.
