What is an air source heat pump?

Watch video: How does a heat pump work?

A heat pump is essentially an outside boiler. It captures heat from outside and moves it into your home, using electricity to do so. Read more about how an air source heat pump works in our guide

There are many benefits to heating your home with an air source heat pump, such as:

  • efficiency - an air source heat pump can be over 300% more efficient than a standard gas boiler and this could save you money on your heating bills(1)
  • lower your carbon footprint by around 12% a year, that's roughly a return flight from London to Perth!(2)
  • enjoy reliable heating and hot water all year round - an air source heat pump can still work effectively at -25°C!
  • low maintenance with a long service life - (15+ years)
  • government funding - you're likely to be eligible for a £5,000 grant from the government if you live in England or Wales and £7,500 if you live in Scotland

How much does an air source heat pump cost?

Wherever you live in Great Britain, you'll be able to apply for government grants to manage the costs. With these included, the costs below for installing an air source heat pump in England and Wales can vary from £5,500 to £13,000. If you live in Scotland a heat pump could cost between £3,000 to £10,000 if you apply for an air source heat pump grant from Home Energy Scotland.

You may be eligible if:

  • you own your property (whether this is your home, a holiday let or small commercial property)
  • you’re replacing the old fossil fuel or electric heating system with a renewable heating system such as a heat pump 
  • you're not replacing a heat pump or previous renewable system
  • the property has a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) with no outstanding recommendations for loft or cavity wall insulation

Is an air source heat pump the right option for me?

Watch video: Is a heat pump suitable for my home?

Most homes are suitable for a heat pump. However, some updates to the property might be required to make sure the heat pump works effectively, such as updates to insulation, changes to radiators or even to the piping.

Our installers will never install a heat pump that won't keep your home comfortably warm. So you can have trust you're getting the best installation for your home.

To install a heat pump, you'll also need to meet all the requirements below:

  • you need to be a homeowner 
  • your home needs to have enough outside space (approx 2m x 1m) and not within 1m of boundary walls
  • space for a water tank (for the most carbon-efficient heat pump)
  • your home needs to have good insulation, such as cavity wall and loft insulation

What will my air source heat pump look like?

We'll install low carbon heat pumps made by Daikin - the biggest manufacturer of air source heat pumps in Europe. Daikin have already installed over 1 million heat pumps across Europe, helping homeowners to reduce their personal carbon footprint. Want to see a heat pump installation?

Will a heat pump lower my energy bills?

There are many factors that contribute to whether you’ll be able to save money on your energy bills, such as:

  • your electricity tariff
  • the type of heat pump you install
  • the design of your central heating system
  • your location and its average air or ground temperatures throughout the year


Savings on your energy bill will also depend on the system you're replacing. According to Energy Saving trust, if you are replacing an old (G-rated) gas boiler with an air source heat pump, you could save you up to £385(3).

Can a heat pump work in cold temperatures?

Heat pumps work more efficiently when it’s warmer which means they’ll have to work a bit harder when it’s cold. However, the heat pumps we can offer still work effectively at -25°C.

How long does it take to install a heat pump?

The heat pump that's installed is bespoke to your home. After speaking with a specialist and designing the right heat pump for you, it will take around 3-5 days to install. To read more about air source heat pump installations, visit our installation guide.

Will I need to replace my radiators?

In some cases, we’ll recommend installing larger radiators. If you have old or single panel radiators, you may need to replace your radiators for double or triple panel radiators to increase the surface area. Radiator upgrades are important as they’ll improve the efficiency of your heat pump and reduce running costs.

Are heat pumps noisy?

You can expect the noise to be a similar volume to a fridge. As it gets colder outside, this noise will increase while it’s operating. However, you shouldn’t be able to hear the sound indoors.

How long is the warranty for an air source heat pump?

Heat pumps come with a 3 year warranty but if you register your air source heat pump with Daikin, it increases to 5 years.
