If you’re looking for the most affordable heat pump than an air source heat pump (ASHP) is your answer. They use air outside of a home to collect heat and transfer this heat inside the home either for heating air or water. This is why you can get air to air heat pumps or air to water heat pumps. Air to water heat pumps work well when used in combination with underfloor heating.
For every unit of electricity inputted to an air source heat pump, 3 - 4 units is created in heat making them the most efficient domestic renewable technologies one can buy. There exist 7 key stages in the cycle of an air source heat pump with the compression of gaseous refrigerant being the most critical and energy intensive step.

The sun heats up the earth and ground throughout the year, even in the winter season. A ground source heat pump (GSHP) is built to capture this stored heat which is typically constant between 8 and 12 degrees celsius.
Ground source heat pumps can be installed in one of 2 ways. If ground space is limited, bore hole(s) will be drilled to a depth between 15 - 150m. Pipes with refrigerant will be inserted into the bore hole. Similarly, if space is widely available a more shallow set up can be used over a larger surface area. As the ground temperature is relatively stable throughout the different seasons, the heat output and therefore efficiency is also more predictable than air source heat pumps.
Whether you’re a homeowner or run a business. If you’re looking to utilise the power of renewable energy to heat your home or business, our installers are ready to help.
Homes and businesses are able to apply for grants of up to £5,000 until April 2025. In order to apply you must have a current Energy Performance Certificate. This ensures that your home or business has sufficient insulation to work in unison with a heat pump.
As the name suggests, a heat pump quite literally pumps heat from one environment to another. This usually from an external system with infinite volume to an internal system with finite volume such as a home or building.
In order to transfer 3 - 4 kwh of heat, 1kwh of electrical energy is used.
Depending on your individual system the heat can be delivered in a variety of forms including a hot water cylinder, air, radiators and underfloor heating. Both air source and ground source work in similar ways except one uses the atmosphere as reservoir to collect heat from and the other uses the ground.
