Helping homeowners get the correct Air Source Heat Pump

It’s easy to incorrectly size an Air Source Heat Pump and when it comes to all of the registrations and certifications, your chosen installer may not be accredited to fulfil all of the requirements. We aid you and your installer every step of the way, ensuring your heating is perfectly tailored to your home.

What is an Air Source Heat Pump?

Typically, homes are heated using Gas, Oil, LPG or Electric. However, there are renewable energy alternatives that are much more efficient and provide a much more sustainable solution. The average Air Source Heat Pump runs at around 350% efficiency so could save you hundreds on your energy bills.

In essence it works a bit like a fridge, or an outdoor air conditioning unit, only in reverse. They generate heat using the air outside which heats the water in your central heating system.

Can I get an Air Source Heat Pump?

Anyone can have an Air Source Heat Pump and depending on your existing heating system there are some great savings to be made if designed and installed correctly. However, if they are undersized this could end up costing you more in energy bills so your heat pump needs to be correct to achieve the desired efficiencies and savings.

Will I be eligible for any funding?

The Government has a carbon net-zero target and is therefore providing financial incentives to support homeowners to 'go green' and improve the energy efficiency of their homes.

To promote renewable energy and Air Source Heat Pumps in particular, the Government have announced the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) which is a £7,500 upfront payment in the form of a voucher. The scheme is administered by Ofgem and there are a number of criteria and strict regulations that must be met in order to apply, one of which is that the heat pump must be approved by MCS and the installation company must also be MCS accredited.

Get in touch and we can support you with the application and redemption of your voucher.
