Air Source Heat pump technology has been used around the world for decades and the technology has developed to produce one of the most advanced, efficient heating systems available today. A heat pump is suitable for small to large applications, be that domestic hot water and heating in the home or for commercial hot water and heating. When designed correctly and properly installed a heat pump will give you low cost reliable heating and hot water.
For every kilowatt of electricity the heat pump uses it generates about 3 to 4 kilowatts of renewable heat from the air. Over the course of a year, it's up to 300% efficient (even the most efficient fossil fuel boiler is less than 95% efficient) so you can enjoy cheaper & greener energy in your property.
An air source heat pump absorbs heat from the air via an outdoor heat pump unit (The outdoor unit is similar in size and looks to an outdoor air conditioning unit that you see on buildings) and it can be installed anywhere on or near your property, up to 50 mtrs away. This heat can then be used to warm radiators, underfloor heating systems, warm air convectors and hot water tanks etc. One of the other major benefits of installing a heat pump is there is no landlord gas safety checks required each year and no risk of exposure to Co2 from a heat pump.

Heat pumps can be used in a wide variety of applications but they can dramatically cut your energy bills where large quantities of hot water are needed. If you use a heat pump to heat swimming pools, provide hot water to sports changing rooms, schools, hotels and commercial kitchens etc you will dramatically lower you energy bills.
The heat pump is especially useful for premises without mains gas in off gas areas of the country. With a heat pump only requiring electricity it is ideal for areas of the UK not on the National Gas Grid. You can also install a heat pump and replace your old heating oil or liquid gas system, no more leaking oil tanks, theft of oil or waiting in for deliveries. Your hot water or heating is only a flick of a switch away.
By using proven heat pump technology to deliver effective, low carbon heating and hot water, this provides a simple, renewable solution that rivals traditional heating systems.
