Air Source Heat Pumps lower energy bills by using the warmth from the outside air to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, convection heaters and hot water in the home.
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. The extracted heat is then used to provide heating to your home. Air Source Heat Pumps can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -15° C, and provide an energy source which is completely renewable due to their reliance on natural resources (ground, air or water).
As a result, Air Source Heat Pumps lower carbon emissions and energy bills by removing the threat of increasing fuel prices (oil & gas), making homes more eco-friendly, as well as providing a energy saving solution.
In addition to lowering fuel bills, Air Source Heat Pumps can also provide additional income through the UK Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive scheme (RHI). Visit the ePlan Energy Renewable Heat Incentive page for more info on the scheme.
Air Source Heat Pumps are not a completely environmentally friendly heating solution, and still have some impact on the environment as they require electricity for power. However, they are still a far more eco-friendly alternative to standard gas, oil, LPG and electric heating systems.
Requiring very little maintenance, Air Source Heat Pumps are widely regarded as ‘fit and forget’ technology. The Energy Saving Trust has stated that an average performing Air Source Heat Pump in an average four-bedroom detached home could save:
"£545 - £880 a year - if you're replacing a oil central heating system."
"£550 - £1,060 a year - if you're replacing a electric heating system."
