Air Source Heat Pump Installation Specialists In Bristol And The South West
Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) are an extremely green source of energy that are proving increasingly popular amongst UK homeowners.
There are two types of heat pumps; air-to-air pumps, which are better known as air conditioning units, and air-to-water pumps which power wet central heating systems such as radiators, underfloor heating and hot water.
Generally considered more efficient than gas boilers, air source heat pumps can provide you with a renewable alternative to gas central heating and are even available to install through green finance schemes.
With easy installation and 3-7 year warranties, air source heat pumps are an intelligent step towards investing in a renewable future. At Go Green Solar, we also offer annual servicing of your air source heat pump to ensure it remains at optimum performance for longer.
How do Air Source Heat Pumps Work?
An air source heat pump is a type of low carbon heating system that works by taking heat from the air and boosting it to a higher temperature using a compressor.
This heat is then fed into the home’s wet central heating system through a heat exchanger.
Unlike a gas boiler, air source heat pumps sit on the exterior of the home and vary in size depending on how much heat they’ll need to generate.
To gain the greatest benefit from air source heat pumps, your home should be well-insulated. The more efficient the home is, the more effective the pump will be.

Air Source Heat Pump Cost

However, the government’s Boiler Upgrade Scheme provides grants of up to £7,500 to help homeowners offset the upfront cost of installing an air source heat pump.
Boiler Upgrade Scheme
The government has introduced the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) through which they are providing grants to encourage property owners to install low carbon heating systems such as air source heat pumps.
These grants are designed to help property owners overcome the upfront cost of low carbon heating technologies and can see property owners receiving £5,000 off the cost of an air source heat pump.
The scheme runs from 2022 – 2025 and is open to domestic and small non-domestic properties in England and Wales, including landlords and second homeowners. Additionally, there is currently 0% VAT for heat pump installation which allows for further savings when installing renewable technologies.
