Air Source Heating
How Do Air Source Heat Pumps Work?
ASHP is a process that by using the principle of vapour compression, transfers the hot air from a place to another exactly in the same way as the system of a refrigerator does. Heat pumps work much like a fridge operating in reverse to heat your home. Outside air is blown over a network of tubes filled with a refrigerant. This warms up the refrigerant, and it turns from a liquid into a gas.
What Is The Cost of An Air Source Heat Pump Installation?
The cost of installing an ASHP really does depend on a number of factors including the size of your property, type of system and additional work required (underfloor heating ect)
A good quality installation will costs from £5000. This would typically include:
- A bespoke design, tailored to the property
- Installation schematics
- Lifetime technical support
- MCS support to successfully apply for the RHI (if applicable)
- The ASHP, domestic hot water cylinder, buffer tank, circulation pumps and all of the connecting brassware for the components

A Reality Check For ASH
Is An Air Source Heat Pump Right For My Property?
Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP’s) have had a bad press recently, largely stoked up by a lack of understanding of the technology and some unfortunate homeowner experiences. Two key factors are vital to ensuring they work effectively. Firstly, homeowners need to maximise the amount of insulation in their lofts and cavity walls before investing in heat pump technology. An Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) is a good way of prioritising your investments to optimise your home’s energy efficiency and there are grants available that can support householders and business. You can search for your properties EPC here
To see if your property is suitable for an ASHP installation, please take our ‘ASHP Reality Check’ on the left hand-side of the page. Please answer the questions as accurately as possible.

Grants and Incentives
From April 2022, homeowners who want to install low-carbon heating measures in their properties in England and Wales could receive a £5000 grant from the Government to help fund some of the costs
So what does this mean for homeowners – When The Clean Heat Grant (Boiler Upgrade Scheme) is launched in April 2022, customers will need to contact an MCS (Micro Generation Certification) accredited organisation to carry out the installation.

Frequently Asked Questions
Questions about Air Source Heat Pumps?
If you have radiators in your home, and you’re switching from a gas-fired heating system to an air source heat pump, you’ll probably need to buy some bigger radiators to keep your house warm

You will also need to consider space for a water tank inside your home. If you don’t have room for a water tank then a hybrid heat pump might be the way to go
Yes, quite possibly. Please bear in mind that for the best energy efficiency you may need to consider upgrading your home’s insulation. Our retrofit co-ordinator would be able to advise you on the best solutions for your property.
