Will an air source heat pump be suitable for my home?

There are a few things to think about when considering an air source heat pump system:

Do you have space outside for the heat pump? Apartments can have a heat pump installed on a supporting balcony or an outside wall. You must check if this is permitted with the landlord.

Is your home well insulated? It is all well and good generating heating and hot water sustainably but it is only beneficial once you have made your home energy efficient. Every home is unique, but you must understand what measures can be done first to reduce the heat that is lost from your home. Loft insulation and double glazing are a good start.

Are you replacing a heating system, or for is this the first heating system that will be installed? Replacing an older heating system delivers faster benefits, but for new builds, it is worth considering how your heat pump system will work in your home –which includes choosing the right heating, for example, underfloor or radiators.
