Heat pumps are a renewable energy technology which convert energy from the air or ground into heat. This process delivers super-efficient, green, low-cost, energy-saving heating and hot water all year round. Heat Pumps are cheaper to run than combustion-based systems, helping you reduce your home carbon emissions. We offer both air source heat pumps and ground source heat pump systems. We offer free home/site surveys where we will advise on where we think the most optimal location for a heat pump is.

There are a multitude of benefits which make a heat pump a great investment for homeowners, including lower bills, educed emissions and minimal maintenance.
Heat pumps work best in buildings which have good insulation, underfloor heating or large radiators and work less well in buildings with poor insulation with undersized radiators. This is because heat pumps are good at efficiently generating warm temperatures over a longer periods. You will need space outside your home or in the ground to place a heat pump.
There are a number of factors that affect how long it takes to install a heat pump, in a new build home typical installation time is 2-3 days. If you are having your existing heating system upgraded or replaced this will extend the installation time.
There are two types of heat pump, air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps. Air source heat pumps take heat from the air and ground source heat pumps extract heat from the ground.
Heat pumps are no louder than your fridge. We are accredited partners with Mitsubishi and there Ecodan heat pumps have been awarded the ‘quiet mark’ by the Noise Abatement Society.
On average a heat pump will last 15-20 years provided the system is regularly maintained and serviced. It is recommended to have a system serviced annually.
Heat pumps are considered to be low carbon when compared to traditional heating systems due to the efficiency of extracting heat from the ground or outside air. If the electricity you use to run your air source heat pump comes from a renewable source, such as solar panels you can have an entirely renewable and clean source of heating.
How much you can save will depend on what size and type of system you are replacing and your energy consumption.
