How Do Air Source Heat Pumps Work?
Air source heat pumps work by extracting heat from the air via external fans. The liquid refrigerant fluid within the system absorbs the heat from the air and the temperature is increased by pumping it through an electrically powered compressor. The heat is then transferred to either the wet central heating system or the coil within the hot water cylinder.

- Reduced carbon footprint
- With a small unit installed outside it doesn’t take up too much space
- Environmentally friendly
- Can help to reduce condensation within the property

Complete Design and Installation Service
As experts in renewable energy heating systems, we offer a comprehensive design service. An initial survey is undertaken to discuss your needs and inform you of the best fit options for your property. We will then return to do a full room-by-room heat loss survey which determines the exact size of heat pump and cylinder you need.
A detailed quote is then provided outlining the full heating system design, details of your heat losses, a full cost breakdown of supply and installation and details of our warranty.
We only install ASHPs from industry-leading manufacturers such as Mitsubishi, Samsung and NIBE to ensure you get the best service and a heating system you can rely on. Furthermore, each unit comes complete with an extensive warranty for total peace of mind.
How often will an ASHP need servicing?
Air source heat pumps require an annual service by a professional installer and this must comply with the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure the installation remains MCS compliant for any RHI payments.
How long will an air source heat pump last?
With the correct planned servicing and maintenance your air source heat pump could last for over 20 years.
Is an air source heat pump worth it and will it save me money?
If you are upgrading from electric, LPG or oil-fired heating then an ASHP installation could save you a lot of money and will pay for itself. However, if you are upgrading from a gas-heated system you are unlikely to make any saving BUT you will be using a renewable energy source and lower your carbon footprint substantially, while future-proofing your property.
We will assist with applications if you are eligible for any financial incentives including the Green Homes Grant or the Renewable Heat Incentive.
