What is an Air Source Heat Pump and How Does it Work?

An air source heat pump absorbs heat from outside air to provide heating and hot water for your home. It is very energy efficient, converting more heat from electricity than a traditional system. It can efficiently function even when outside temperatures drop as low as -15°C.


There are two main types of air-source heat pumps to consider:

  1. Air-to-Water Heat Pumps: Typically used with wet central heating systems, they’re also compatible with underfloor heating and qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme.

  2. Air-to-Air Heat Pumps: These heat your property via fans but do not supply hot water.

How much does it cost to Install a Heat Pump?

Experience the Benefits of Air Source Heat Pumps:

The cost of installing an air source heat pump in Essex depends on the heated square footage and a few other factors. However, our pricing is very competitive and we can also advise you on the available government grants and include these in your quote. While air-source systems may have a higher upfront cost than traditional heating methods, long-term savings from lower operating costs make them pay for themselves over time for most homeowners. 


Replacing old heating systems can save:

  • Approximately £450 per year when shifting from an old gas boiler
  • Around £500 per year when changing from an old oil boiler
  • Up to £900 per year when replacing old electric storage heaters
  • As much as £1200 per year moving away from an old LPG boiler
