Are you sitting on the air source heat pump fence?

Get in touch to discuss your next project

Are you sitting on the fence regarding renewable heating? Do you love the idea of doing ‘your bit’ for the environment and potentially saving a bit of cash at the same time, but still don’t feel confident enough to take the plunge?  Yes?  You’re not alone.

Day in and day out, we come across people who’re attracted by the idea of an air source heat pump to heat their home using the air from outside, but many then get confused when it comes to the detail – what’s involved, what financial support might be available, who they could trust to do a great job, etc.  What happens next is that they end up ‘sitting on the air source heat pump fence’ wondering if an air source heat pump might be right for them or not.  If that sounds familiar, we’re here to help.

Here are the concerns we hear most often:

  • “I don’t feel as if I know enough about renewable heating to make such a big decision.” We hear this all the time.  People have the likes of an air source heat pump on their ‘To Do’ list and delve into Google every now and again, just to abandon the task because they feel confused.  If this sounds like you, check out this Introduction to Air Source Heat Pumps that we put together – it’s a good no-jargon intro.
  • “How does an air source heat pump work?” There’s a lot of misconception when it comes to air source heat pumps.  Lots of people think the heat comes directly from the pump, when in fact the pump is just part of the overall system.  The pump sends heat around your home via radiators or underfloor heating and can even provide hot water.  Check this out to get an idea of the main elements of an air source heat pump system.
  • “How much help might I get if I go ahead?” Currently, there are various funding options for your air source heat pump. Using this link you’ll be able to explore what help is available to you. To give you an idea, there are grants of up to 75% and generous repayment terms for the remaining 25%, making it an attractive time to check out your options.
  • “I currently heat my house using oil, should I change?” When it comes to deciding to change from oil central heating to an air source heat pump, there is no one size fits all answer.  However, there’s no doubt that the oil price volatility is currently a good argument for moving, as are the environmental arguments.  But there is an initial cost that has to be taken into account.  Check this out to dig a bit deeper on the pros and cons and of course reach out if you’d like to discuss this dilemma.
  • “I’m planning renovations in the future; wouldn’t I be better to wait?” Installing a brand-new heating system or changing your heating from one type to another is an invasive process, there’s no getting away from that.  From that point of view, doing it as part of your renovation is ideal.  That said, if you’re planning, for example, an extension in the future but want to upgrade your heating now, at Precise we’ll future proof your system by allowing for your plans.  The secret to getting this right is sharing all your future plans for your home with us so we can build them into the design of your heating system.
  • “If I make the decision to go ahead, what happens next?” One of the big questions we get asked when people have (pretty much) reached the point of deciding to go ahead with the design and installation of a heating system powered by an air source heat pump is – “How does it all work? How do I get access to the funding?  What do I have to pay upfront and when do I get my money back?”  In order to help you get your head around the air source heat pump journey, we’ve put together this list.
  • How much will an air source heat pump cost me? Air source heat pumps are an investment, and many people worry about horror stories they’ve heard about the costs. There’s no one size fits all, but this will give you an idea.
  • How much am I likely to save? Again, this is a tough question and not one we’d nail our colours to the mast on (because we want to be clear and transparent) but you’ll find some good impartial running costs right here.
