Air source heat pumps provide an efficient, low carbon heating alternative to gas, LPG and other electrical heating systems. 

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. Air source heat pump helps you:

 

  • Enjoy reliable heating and hot water all year round
  • Lower your carbon footprint
  • Save energy and tonnes of carbon(1) over time

How to get an air source heat pump

  • You need to be a homeowner
  • Your home needs to have enough outside space (approx 2m x 1m) and not within 1m of boundary walls
  • Space for a water tank (for the most carbon-efficient heat pump)
  • Your home needs to have good insulation
