Air Source Heat Pump Installation London

Air-source Heat Pumps are super-efficient systems that absorb heat from
the outside air and use it to heat radiators or underfloor heating.

The outside unit absorbs the heat from the air and transfers it to the tank in the house. A hot water cylinder is always needed. The system works best with underfloor heating although we often install fan assisted radiators when underfloor heating is not possible.

We have many years of experience working with Architects, Project Managers and Main Contractors to simplify the installation of these systems.

The UK government has made a commitment to net zero emissions by 2050. This is going to require a massive change to the way we heat our homes.

The majority of British homes still burn natural gas for their heat, and this has to stop if we’re going to reach net zero.

An air source heat pump is an incredibly efficient way to heat your home using electricity, the heat pump will consume 1kW of electricity to produce around 4kW of heat making the heat pump around 400% efficient. As a comparison an Electric Boiler is only 100% efficient, meaning if you pay for 1kW of electricity, you will receive 1kW of heat. This means the running cost of a heat pump will be around 1/4 when compared to an electric boiler.

We want to help simplify the transition away from fossil fuels

Our process:

  • Telephone consultation with our heat pump specialist
  • Site visit to confirm feasibility followed by a ballpark price
  • Detailed site visit and heat loss calculations to provide an MCS approved quote
  • Fully project managed installation
  • Annual servicing and maintenance

How does it work?

Heating Pumps reverse the process used in air conditioning systems. Heat from the air is absorbed into a liquid refrigerant . The refrigerant is compressed and this process gives out heat, which is then transferred to your home’s hot water tank, radiators or underfloor heating.

Air source heat pumps differ from ground source heat pumps because they are typically cheaper and easier to install. They tend to be much more practical if you have limited garden space. Ground source requires a larger surface area – or a very deep hole.

The technology works best when combined with underfloor heating. If this is not an option, we can also use fan assisted radiators. The first step is to insulate your home as much as possible. If the building isn’t losing heat, it takes less energy to keep it warm.
