Air Source Heat Pumps
Adopt a green and sustainable approach to heating with an air-source heat pump. Thousands of UK homes have already made the switch, and you can too. With the government aiming to eliminate gas boilers in new constructions by 2025, an ASHP guarantees an eco-friendly heating solution
How it works
An air source heat pump operates by drawing in air from the environment, causing a refrigerant liquid to vaporise and transform into gas. The pump then compresses the gas to harness its warmth, which is used to heat your home and provide hot water. To ensure maximum efficiency, your home must meet certain requirements. If it does not, we may not be able to suggest an air source heat pump for your property at this time
- For us to install an air source heat pump at your home, it’s essential to have a current Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D or higher
- Having insulation is crucial for reaping the benefits of a heat pump. Ensure you have proper cavity wall and/or loft insulation. Your EPC rating can inform you if additional insulation is required in your home
