Benefits of ASHPs
Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) offer numerous benefits, making them an attractive choice for heating and cooling residential and commercial spaces. Here are some of the key advantages:
ASHPs are highly efficient heating and cooling systems. They use electricity to transfer heat from the outdoor air to the indoor space, providing more energy output than the energy input required to operate them. This results in reduced energy consumption and lower utility bills.
Lower Operating Costs
Due to their high efficiency, ASHPs can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs compared to traditional heating systems, such as electric resistance heaters or oil furnaces.
ASHPs have a lower carbon footprint compared to conventional heating systems that rely on fossil fuels. They generate heat by utilizing ambient air, a renewable resource, which helps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reliance on non-renewable energy sources.
ASHPs can provide both heating and cooling, making them versatile solutions for year-round comfort. They can reverse their operation to act as air conditioners during warmer months, offering a dual-purpose solution.
ASHPs are designed to provide consistent heating even in cold climates. Advanced models can efficiently extract heat from the air even when outdoor temperatures are low, ensuring a comfortable indoor environment.
Many governments and local authorities offer incentives, rebates, or tax credits to encourage the adoption of energy-efficient heating systems like ASHPs. These incentives can help offset the initial installation costs.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do air source heat pumps work?
Heat from the air is absorbed at low temperature into a fluid. This fluid passes through a compressor, increasing the temperature, and transfers that higher temperature heat to the heating and hot water circuits of the house.
There are two main types of ASHP: air-to-water and air-to-air. Choosing an air-to-water or an air-to-air system will determine the type of heat distribution system you need.
Is your home well insulated?
Since air source heat pumps work best when producing heat at a lower temperature than traditional boilers, it’s important that your home is well insulated and draught-proofed to minimise heat loss.
Air source heat pumps will continue to operate at temperatures of around -15°C (some can operate at even lower temperatures), but will be most efficient at higher temperatures.
Do you need planning permission?
While air source heat pumps don’t take up too much outdoor space, the unit will be visible from the outside of your property, so it’s best to check with your local planning authority first, to find out if you need planning permission. As the unit is above ground, it will produce a noise similar to that of an air conditioning unit, which could be bothersome to you or your neighbours.
Can I get a grant for installing an air source heat pump?
Yes. If you decide to buy an air source heat pump, you maybe may be eligible to receive payments for the heat that you generate using the pump, all through the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). The installation costs can be partially or fully recouped subject to survey.
