Why Choose an Air Source Heat Pump?


Thus, the fundamental benefit of air source boilers and heat pumps is that they protect households from changes in energy prices. 75% of your house’s heating and hot water requirements are met by heat pumps, which reduces your dependence on electricity and your vulnerability to growing heating prices. Moreover, heat pumps also use the environment to generate hot water for your home.

What is an Air Source Heat Pump?

The majority of home heating systems either burn fuel or generate heat from electricity. But because they don’t produce heat, heat pumps are unique.

Instead, they bring outside heat energy into your house. Therefore, they are more effective as a result. Considering that they produce more heat energy than they use up in electricity. Therefore, running a heat-pump system can be less expensive than running a conventional fossil fuel heating system.


Air source heat pump advantages:

  • use renewable energy
  • are more efficient than gas boilers 
  • are cost effective
  • reduce your carbon footprint
  • are quiet

Using a home air source heat pump

Your home and water can be heated with air source heat pumps. Here are a few things to think about.

Heating with an air source heat pump

Less of a temperature difference between inside and outside is ideal for heat pumps. similar to how hot weather makes your refrigerator work harder.

Thus, they are a suitable fit for underfloor heating systems because of this. Compared to radiators, floors have a larger surface area, therefore they don’t need to heat up as quickly to deliver the same quantity of heat.

A gas or oil-fired boiler produces more energy than an air source heat pump does. They can’t deliver heat as quickly as a result of this. The best usage for them is to gradually warm your house over a longer period of time.

Air source heat pump and radiators

You will probably need to purchase larger radiators if your property has radiators and you are going from a gas-fired heating system to an air source heat pump in order to keep your house warm.

Using an air source heat pump for hot water

Although the water will be cooler than from a boiler, heat pumps can still be an excellent source of hot water. Practically, this means that you will need more hot water and less cold water when running a bath. In order to meet your needs, you may also need a larger hot water tank.

Which heat pump is the best for me?

In the UK, air source heat pumps are the most prevalent and versatile type of domestic heat pump.

You might be interested in learning more about air-to-air heat pumps if you don’t currently have radiators or underfloor heating and can’t or don’t want to install them. Therefore, air-to-air systems are more frequently found in smaller buildings like apartments and park homes.

Is an air source heat pump right for me?

With tens of thousands of installations around the UK, heat pumps are the most popular type of household heat pump and appropriate for many different types of dwellings. Therefore, before selecting whether a heat pump is the correct choice for you, there are a few things to think about.

How are you going to heat the spaces in your house?

In the majority of homes in the UK, hot water is circulated via radiators or underfloor heating.

You must determine whether you want to install radiators or underfloor heating if you don’t already have either of these features. This is an excellent chance to ensure that the system is heat pump-optimized, which will minimize operating expenses.

Moreover, lacking the ability or desire to install radiators or underfloor heating, an air-to-air heat pump might be effective for you.


Your home will become more pleasant and cost less to heat if the insulation is improved.

Thus, each room requires less heat to keep comfortable in a well-insulated home, so the radiators may generate this heat using water at a lower temperature, which improves the efficiency of the heat pump.

Therefore, this helps you conserve energy and money in two ways: by lowering the amount of warmth you need and improving the output efficiency of your heat pump.

Additionally, another advantage is that you might need a smaller heat pump, which has lower operating costs and purchasing costs than a larger heat pump, if your overall heating needs are reduced.

By minimizing heat loss due to uncontrolled airflow, draught-proofing can also help you use less heating overall.

There are other options available if installing insulation or enlarging your radiators is not an option. Some heat pumps are made expressly to deliver water that is hotter. Therefore, a system that meets your needs should be able to be designed by your installer. Another option to think about is a hybrid system.
