Heat Pumps




Heat Pump Technology

A heat pump uses the same technology as an air conditioner, which cools your home using a refrigerant. The only major difference between an air-conditioner and a heat pump is that a heat pump has a reversing valve, which allows it to also heat your home.

300% More Efficient

For every unit of energy it uses to extract heat from the air, it typically outputs three times more as heat.

Reduce Energy Bills

Installing an Air Source Heat Pump system and solar system could significantly reduce your energy bills.

What are Heat Pumps and Types

Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) use the energy in outside air or air from a ventilation system for heating, cooling and heating water. They can be installed entirely inside or outside the house. Or, you can have a system with one unit inside the building and one outside.

Water Source Heat Pumps (WSHP) use the energy stored in ground water, surface, or sea or sewage water. The heat pump takes heat from the water and makes it available for heating, cooling and preparation of hot water. Water source heat pumps are particularly efficient because water is a very good energy carrier.

Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) use the energy stored in the ground. They extract heat from the ground either by a vertical or horizontal collector.


The installation of an Heat Pump heating system is not simply a case of swapping your old Oil or LPG boiler for an air source heat pump as they work quite differently. An air source heat pump installation is most commonly a whole heating system upgrade.

Heat Pumps systems work at a lower flow temperature than traditional boiler systems. This means that the existing radiators and hot water cylinder may need to be upgraded for ones with larger surface areas to allow the heat generated by the Heat Pump to heat your home and hot water as efficiently as possible.

What does it cost?

This is the question that it can be hard to find an answer to. Taking into account the £5000 Boiler Upgrade Scheme, a reasonable level of investment to expect for a complete system, matched perfectly to your requirements.

How long does it take?

Depending on the size of the installation and the number of radiators that need changing, the installation could take between 2 and 5 days.

The existing pipework can be reused in most cases, but if it can’t, replacing it can also add to the cost.  Reusing the existing pipework infrastructure minimises upheaval, which means that in the majority of cases floorboards will not need to be pulled up to get to the pipework.
