Easy Installation Process
Installing an air source heat pump can take as little as two days. Installing an air source heat pump is easier than installing a ground source heat pump, because you don’t need to dig. A domestic air source heat pump typically doesn’t require planning permissions, but it is always advised to check with the local authority before you start your process. It’s an ideal option for both retrofits and new builds. Our team are here to help you with all of the above so don’t stress – if you’re unsure, just ask!
Servicing and maintenance should be done by a technician once a year. As such air source heat pumps are low maintenance, but there are a few things that you can do to ensure optimal performance of your heat pump, from cleaning filters, to checking for system leaks, checking refrigerant levels, clearing leaves and dust from your heat pump, and so on. Any more technical tasks should only be done by one of our certified installers.
Air source heat pumps have a long lifespan, and with proper maintenance, they can be operational for up to 20 years. What’s more, is that most air source heat pumps have 5-year warranties. With several technological developments modern heat pumps are able to work efficiently for close to 25 years before they need replacing.
No Fuel Storage Needed
No fuel storage is needed with air source heat pumps, because the fuel used is the outside air. With oil-fired boilers, for example, you need to store the oil somewhere, which would take up extra space on your property. Not relying on fuel, such as oil or wood pellets, also means you won’t have to pay additional fees for fuel deliveries.
