A natural choice for those looking to save money on their heating bills, an air source heat pump uses a natural energy source – air – to produce energy to heat your home. It absorbs warmth from the outside air and converts it into indoor heat in the form of hot air, hot-water pipes or under-floor heating. There are numerous reasons why a home-owner might wish to install one, but here we’ve outlined some of the most attractive benefits.

Low carbon footprint

By replacing fossil-fuel energy sources with a natural, freely available alternative, an air source heat pump reduces the carbon footprint of your home, meaning that you will be having less of a negative impact on the environment at large.

More efficient

Running mostly on air makes these pumps extremely efficient; although they need electricity to function, approximately one unit of electricity produces three units of power – not a bad exchange rate! And air source heat pumps can also heat your water, meaning you don’t need an extra power source to make your taps run hot. All of which makes this system relatively cheap to run and, in turn, better for the environment too.

Extra savings

Through a government initiative called the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive, homeowners may have the opportunity to claim back a dividend after switching their heating system to an air source heat pump. Overseen by the financial regulator Ofgem, this fund was set up to encourage the adoption of eco-friendly heating systems.

Low maintenance

An air source heat pump needs checking up on once a year, but otherwise works fine left to its own devices, making it a hassle-free way to heat the home.

Long lifespan

Designed to run for 20 to 30 years, air source heat pumps are a sound investment in affordable heating with considerable longevity. Most also come with a lengthy warranty, meaning you’re guaranteed efficient heating for years to come.
