Heat pumps are renewable technologies which use environmental energy to generate heat for your central heating or hot water system. They use electricity to run, which reduces your carbon footprint and takes you one step closer to being energy independent and most importantly they generate energy. On average for every 1kW of electricity used they generate further 3kW, which makes them extremely efficient. 


There are different types of heat pumps designed to suit different types of properties, depending on the size, location and the surrounding environment.  


Heat pumps can use either air, ground or water source to generate heat. 



Choosing the right heat pump for your property is a very bespoke process which is the key for having warm home and low running cost at the same time. As a certified MCS member we can take you through the complete process from choosing the right pump for you through to installation.


The process involves an initial site survey (approx an hour to an hour and a half). During this time we take crucial measurements of each room and discuss the positions of all key components of the installation and ways you can improve the heat loss of your home.

After the initial site survey we carry out heat loss calculations to determine the size of the heat pump required and the type/size of emitters to be used.

Generally heat pumps work best with underfloor heating which allows them to heat up your property evenly at a much lower flow temperature compared to a conventional gas boiler. 

Once you are happy with the choice of heat pump, emitters and installation design, we can then proceed with the installation which on average takes one week.

Should you wish to consider installing a heat pump at your property you might be eligible for the newly increased government grant of £7,500.00 (as of 23rd October 2023) under the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS).

In conjunction with the BUS all installations are currently VAT free until 31st March 2027

In order to apply for the government grant you are required to have a valid EPC with no further recommendation for loft or cavity wall insulation. And your property should have at leats double glazing throughout. 

Check if you have a valid EPC here.

Should you wish to install a heat pump at your property please contact us for a quote.

We do supply and install some of the leading brands in the field.

Air source heat pumps

Air source heat pumps are the most commonly used type of heat pumps available as they don’t require a lot of outdoor area and can even be installed in flats. 

They take the energy from the outside to extract heat and transfer it to your central heating and hot water system.

As air source heat pumps operate at lower temperatures than a conventional gas boiler installation you might need to enlarge the size of your existing radiators or use underfloor heating to cope with the heat demand. This can be determined once the heat loss calculations are completed.

Ground source heat pumps

Ground source heat pump harvests the heat from underground via pipe system embedded in the ground, surrounding the property. For this reason your property does require the necessary outdoor area to allow such installation below the surface level. A liquid is pumped through the underground loops and harvests the naturally occurring heat. This heat is then transferred via heat exchanger module to your central heating or hot water system.

How does a heat pump work?

The heat from the air/ground is blown or pumped to an external pipework system, which is filled with refrigerant liquid. The heated refrigerant evaporates and turns into a gas which is then compressed. This process increases the temperature to what is needed in the property and then the heat is distributed via the heating or hot water system. By releasing the heat the refrigerant condenses back into liquid. This cycle repeats until the heat or hot water demand is satisfied. 

Heat pumps can also be reversible which introduces cooler temperature into the property during the hot summer days.
