Ground and air source heat pumps
A heat pump extracts energy from the air or ground, even when it’s cold outside, and uses it to heat your home.
They are the renewable, low-carbon alternative to traditional high-carbon heating systems.
This reliable heating technology delivers highly efficient, sustainable heating, hot water and in some cases cooling, all year round.
Eco-friendly and efficient - switch from polluting fossil fuels to clean energy. Heat pumps are around 400% more efficient
Lower energy bills – with current high energy prices your heat pump could pay for itself in as little as 7 years
Future-proof – with gas boilers set to be banned from new homes in 2025, it’s wise to switch to a heat pump and benefit straight away
Government support - MCS approved for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
Quiet and efficient – most systems operate at around 40-60 decibels – somewhere between a whisper and normal conversation
Electricity is the energy source of the future, renewable sources will become the norm.
The global and local goal is to have net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 - this is ambitious!
The goal of the energy transition is independent from fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are in decline on the electricity market as they are too harmful to the climate and ever more scarce. Currently, heating UK homes accounts for 14% of the overall carbon emissions levels, which is too high.
Nowadays, alternative energies from the sun, wind and water are smart solutions to the climate crisis and the protection of our planet.
Renewable heating systems like air or ground source heat pumps have been recognised as an important part of the solution. This is why the government is encouraging the installation of heat pumps as the low carbon alternative to gas, oil and LGP heating.
