Air Source Heat Pump
With such great government incentive like the Green Home Grant there has never been a better time to get an Air Source Heat Pump
Save With Air Source Heat Pump
Air Source Heat Pumps are the best alternative on the market for a boiler replacement and from 2025 there will be less and less gas boilers replaced in the UK.
Under the Green Home Grant, you can claim up to £5,000 for two thirds off the upfront cost to help pay for your heat pump. If you claim the Green Homes Grant, the remainder can be claimed through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) over 7 years. To help the UK reach its target of net zero emissions by 2050, this government scheme helps support people who have certain renewable technologies in their homes. It provides quarterly payments for 7 years, meant to offset the cost of fitting and running your renewable heating system.
Low-income households are entitled for up to £10,000 grant and that can cover the cost of Air Source Heat Pump in full.
The air source heat pumps can be installed into practically any home and will help to reduce your energy bills and reduce CO2 emissions. Heat pumps heat your home and hot water even when temperatures outside are as low as -15ºC.
On average you can save £2,755 over 10 years and produce 68% less carbon emissions than a gas heated home.
According to Energy Saving Trust, you can expect your heat pump to last 20 years or more compared to 10 to 15 years for a gas boiler.
What Is An Air Source Heat Pump
An energy-efficient air source heat pump (ASHP) works like a fridge but in reverse. It absorbs heat from the outside air into a refrigerant fluid. The fluid is then passed through an electric compressor which increases the fluid’s temperature, using this higher temperature to fuel the home’s heating and hot water.
The pump uses electricity to run and can use one unit of electricity to generate up to 4x heat, so it is up to 400% energy efficient!
Little outdoor space required, meaning an air source heating system is suitable for most urban properties.
Apply For Air Source Heat Pump
An ASHP Is Right For You If:
- You are looking for a low-carbon, eco-friendly and sustainable way to heat your home
- The property is well insulated – this is important for efficiency and keeping running costs low
- There is some outside space
Off the gas grid? An air source heat pump is also one of the most cost-effective ways to heat your home.
Cost Of Air Source Heat Pump
A high-quality and well-designed air source heating typical system costs around £6,000 – £11,000. This includes professional design, installation, the air source heat pump, hot water cylinder, buffer tank, circulation pumps and all of the pipes.
With Green Home Grant you can get ASHP installed at significantly discounted rate, or even for FREE.
Electricity – you still need to use electricity to drive the pump, so an air source heat pump can't be considered completely zero-carbon unless this is provided by a renewable source, such as solar power or a wind turbine. It is worth considering solar PV or a wind turbine for a greener source of electricity.Claim Now
