Facts that people get wrong about Air Source Heat Pumps

Posted by Andi

Air Source Heat Pumps are very expensive…

The units themselves can vary in price like any product but here at Greener Living we only install top of the range Mitsubishi Ecodan Air Source Heat Pumps as they are the proven industry leader and they come in various sizes that are matched to your heating needs for your property. We are also an accredited installer which we need to be for our customers to be able to claim the full Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments from the government plus we have been doing this for many years which is why Greener Living is the UK’s number one Air Source Heat Pump installer.

Air Source Heat Pumps

Make no mistake, we sell a premium service and a premium product for a reason, this is something that you need to run efficiently all year round to benefit from, but here’s the good news – a top of the range Air Source Heat Pump installed correctly in your home could potentially save you up to 70% savings on your heating bills by moving away from Gas and Oil and making your home greener, but you can also claim £7,500 back from the government to help with the costs of installation.

You need a lot of space for an Air Source Heat Pump to be installed…

Obviously, this will vary property to property but one of the major benefits of an Air Source Heat Pump over a Ground Source Heat Pump is that there is no digging up of the garden to install it. The unit will sit either against the property outside in a suitable spot or can be wall mounted if that is your preferred option. We have years of experience in installing these systems and we will work with you to pick the best place to suit your needs and to keep the unit working at top efficiency all year round.

A Heat Pump will need underfloor heating installed in your home…

Like most heating systems underfloor heating is a very effective way to help heat a home but it is not a defining factor in whether an Air Source Heat Pump would be an option for your home or not, we have installed these systems into hundreds of homes that didn’t have underfloor heating installed.

Air Source Heat Pumps are incredibly noisy…

A major worry that many customers have is that an Air Source Heat Pump is very noisy, causing annoyance not just to your household but to neighbours and surrounding buildings also. This is not true, years of technological advances and research has made the units we use the quietest on the market today, the Ultra Quiet Ecodan has a sound power level of only 58 dB(A) which is an 8 dB(A) drop over the model it replaces and also has a sound pressure level of just 45 dB(A) at one metre.

They are only effective down to a certain temperature and won’t work in winter…

This is completely false, an Air Source Heat Pump can work in temperatures as low as -25°C which is why they are one of the most popular heating systems in Scandinavia whose winters can often be much colder than those in the UK.
