An air source heat pump can save £1,696 over 10 years(1)

With the Green Homes Grant and RHI schemes subsidising installing an air source heat pump, there's never been a better time to get one

Reduce your heating bill and upfront cost

  • Daikin air source heat pumps are up to 4x more efficient than an equivalent gas boiler(4), so you can heat your home and water for a similar cost to gas

  • Thanks to the Green Homes Grant and Renewable Heat Incentive, you can claim up to £10,500 in subsidies(5) depending on your energy usage

Longer life & easier maintenance than a boiler

  • According to Energy Saving Trust, you can expect your heat pump to last 20 years or more(6) compared to 10 to 15 years for a gas boiler

  • We recommend a simple annual check by a qualified person

Better for the environment

  • An air source heat pump produces up to 68% less CO₂ than a gas boiler(2), so for a 3 bed home you can save the equivalent of 6 return flights from London to Madrid over a year(2)

  • Heat pumps heat your home and hot water even when temperatures outside are as low as -20ºC(7)

How much does an air source heat pump cost and what savings can I make?

With 68% less carbon emissions(2) and similar costs to gas boilers, the question is - Why wouldn't you?

What is an air source heat pump?

An energy-efficient air source heat pump (ASHP) works like a fridge but in reverse. It absorbs heat from the outside air and circulates it through your heating system.

The pump uses electricity to run and can use one unit of electricity to generate up to 4x heat(4).

For an air source heat pump to be effective, and to claim on the Renewable Heat Incentive, you will need at least 150mm loft insulation to prevent heat escaping through the walls or roof.

Air source heat pumps you can trust

For our equipment, we've partnered with Daikin, the biggest manufacturer of air source heat pumps in Europe with products sold in over 150 countries.

And for added peace of mind, we're working with a network of highly trained Daikin installers who are all accredited by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) and TrustMark certified, the Government Endorsed Quality Scheme, so you know they're thoroughly vetted and commited to good customer service, technical competence and trading practices.

Funding your air source heat pump

There's up to £10,500 in government subsidies available(5).

Under the Green Homes Grant, you can claim up to £5,000 for two thirds off the upfront cost to help pay for your heat pump. If you claim the Green Homes Grant, the remainder can be claimed through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) over 7 years, otherwise the full amount can be claimed through the RHI.

With both schemes combined, there has never been a better time to get an air source heat pump. For those households with low-income, additional subsidies may be available.

What air source heat pump customers say

We love the Air Source Heat Pump, it provides a constant ambient comfortable temperature throughout the house. Now it’s always warm.

Anna Edwards, Bridgwater, Somerset

I am delighted with the efficiency and relatively quietness of the Air Source Heat Pump itself. It is an environmental and engineering marvel.

Peter Corkill, Canterbury, Kent

Is an air source heat pump right for your home?

Gas homes

If you have an old boiler and reasonably insulated home, then you can switch to an energy-efficient air source heat pump. Our trusted installers will recommend the right heat pump based on your needs and house type.

Oil or LPG homes

A hybrid heat pump could be the best option for you if your heating runs on Oil or LPG. A Hybrid upgrade simply adds a smaller heat pump to your home so you use less oil or LPG without overhauling your entire system.

Have you thought about insulation?

Any heating system is only effective if the heat it's creating doesn't escape through a poorly insulated roof or walls. Prevent heat loss and save up to £530 on your energy bills(8) by adding insulation to your home. You can also qualify for up to 66% off with the Green Homes Grant.
