There is only 5% Vat on domestic heat pump installations. Heat pumps have been available in homes since the 1970s,  providing heating and hot water. The recent rises in fuel costs have expanded the market, improved the technology and reduced the price.
Who benefits most from an air source or ground source heat pump installation?
  • New build properties – better insulation
  • Buildings heated by oil or LPG boilers
  • Buildings using a lot of hot water
  • Swimming pools – all year round economical heat without a boiler
  • Under-floor heating systems - perfect for heat pumps

Air source heat pump systems

An air source heat pump is a standalone unit which can combine with a boiler or other heat source. It extracts heat from the air and pipes hot water into your heating system or hot water cylinder, just like a boiler. A simple, high performance installation within a sensible budget. They can provide hot water and heating up to 65°c.

Ground source heat pump systems

The ground source heat pump is slightly more efficient than the air source heat pump, but a more demanding installation. A network of pipes are buried approximately 1.2 metres deep to extract gentle heat from the ground. Ground source heat pumps can provide up to 55°c temperatures. As with all heat pumps, they are more economical when running at lower temperatures. If you have the space and you don’t mind if we dig some trenches, then ground source heat pumps can offer significant savings on running costs compared to a boiler and a benefit over air source heating.
The cost of installation is about double that of an air source heat pump installation, with about a 10% efficiency gain.
