Heat Pumps

What is a heat pump?

An air to water heat pump is designed to use heat from the air outside to heat underfloor heating systems, radiators and hot water in your home. They work in a very similar way to your fridge, but instead of removing heat from inside the fridge the heat is removed from the outside air and transferred to your homes heating and hot water systems.

Even when the temperature outside is as low as -20° C heat pumps will perform fantastically, and can save you up to 80% of your energy costs when compared to convention oil or gas systems. Although a heat pump uses electricity to extract the warm air, if you have a solar pv system the offset will be even greater.

  • Lower your carbon footprint when used with a solar pv system
  • Very little maintenance needed
  • Earn money through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
  • Ideal for "off grid" remote locations
