Air Source Heat Pump

AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS – HOW DO THEY WORK?

When an air source heat pump is installed energy is extracted from the air outside the building using a refrigeration circuit.

The heat is transmitted into the building and used to heat the rooms with radiators or underfloor heating. It also heats the hot water cylinder.

If carefully installed they will run reliably with little maintenance and can give impressive levels of kWs out for each kW input.  MSC data charts are available for each machine for you to download.

We take out a ten year insurance policy with IWA to back up our warranty on our installations giving you peace of mind!

Advantages

  • Air source heating systems are intrinsically reliable giving a low maintenance life span of 20 years. When does anyone take a screwdriver to a fridge?
  • Running costs lower than oil, electric radiators or cylinder gas and comparable with mains gas.
  • If considering for a new build it will avoid the high gas connection costs while giving similar run costs.
  • Simple to install at low cost as no ground works are required

Government Financial Incentives

Air Source Heat Pumps qualify for the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive for domestic installations. Depending on the ASHP used commercial installs can also claim RHI.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often do Air Source Heat Pumps need servicing?

They should be checked over annually by a professional installer. This helps ensure they are safe to operate and that you are still eligible for Renewable Heat Initiative payments.

Will I need a new electricity supply to power my Air Source Heat Pump?

No. If you have a normal 240v supply we can use that to power your new pump.

Will I need to replace my radiators if I have an Air Source Heat Pump installed?

You might be able to keep your existing ones. It will depend on their size, which we can measure in advance and advise you on accordingly.

Do you offer any warranties or guarantees with your Air Source Heat Pumps?

Yes, we do. The exact type will depend on the brand of pump we install.
