Air Source Heat Pumps
What are Air Source heat pumps
Air source pumps are an alternative way to heat your home, and could be the ideal solution if you want to generate your own heat and potentially save money on your energy bills. Read on to find out more about air source heat pumps, including their pros and cons, so you can decide whether getting one is right for you.
How do air source heat pumps work?
An air source heat pump (ASHP) is usually placed outdoors at the side or back of a property. It takes heat from the air and boosts it to a higher temperature using a heat pump. The pump needs electricity to run, but it should use less electrical energy than the heat it produces. Many air source heat pumps are eligible for payment through the Renewable Heat Incentive, a government scheme that provides payments towards generating their own heat. Our unique funding model enables you to only have to contribute 1%
Ideal for off-gas areas
Air source heat pumps can be used to replace or work with any existing heating system, and offers those in off-gas areas a viable, alternative to oil. Air source heat pumps also offers significant reductions in installation and running costs compared to oil and with a professionally maintained heat pump unit offering an average lifespan of 15 – 20 years, you’ll save on annual maintenance costs too.
