What is an air source heat pump?

If you’re curious about heat pumps, the first question on your mind is bound to be – how do they work? It's an excellent question, and the answer is simpler than you might expect. Imagine a heat pump like a refrigerator working in reverse. It extracts heat from the outside air and transfers it to the air supply used for heating the home. Heat pumps offer a concept called "trickle heat," meaning they gradually build up to a cosy temperature and maintain this, rather than rapidly reaching high temperatures.

Is your property suitable for a heat pump?

When it comes to cost-effectiveness and efficiency, heat pumps are hard to beat. However, it's important to meet certain prerequisites if you want to ensure optimal performance. This is because the construction of your home and the amount of insulation will determine how effectively your living space can be heated. You should work out whether your home has the following features in place:

  • Modern double glazing 
  • High levels of wall, floor, and roof insulation 
  • Underfloor heating installed
  • Space for larger radiators
  • Space for additional equipment

We work with a range of leading heat pump manufacturers, giving us access to an extensive selection of high-quality models. If you’d like to know how suitable your home is for an air source heat pump, call 0203 620 5800 for a free home visit. We’ll be happy to discuss the best options with you.

Hybrid heat pump systems for homes in Dulwich

Even if your home doesn't meet the criteria mentioned earlier, there are still ways to incorporate a heat pump into your heating setup effectively. 

We can design and install a hybrid heating system that combines a boiler and a heat pump so that you can benefit from the strengths of each option. In this setup, the heat pump will handle your daily heating needs and the boiler will provide your hot water supply. You’ll also be able to rely on the boiler to assist with particularly high heating demands. A hybrid approach offers the efficiency, reduced emissions, and lower running costs that are associated with renewables and the peace of mind that comes from a tried-and-tested boiler. If your home isn't built to make the most of a heat pump, a hybrid option serves as the perfect solution to bridge the gap.

How much does a heat pump cost?

Naturally, one of the most significant concerns when selecting a new heating system is the cost. Providing an exact price is challenging since it varies depending on factors like the size of your home. However, the following figures should work as a rough guide. Installing a heat pump will cost around £8k, though the cost can rise to around £20k for large, complex installations. If you’re planning a hybrid installation and are happy to retain your existing boiler, this can cut the installation costs in half. When making a decision, it’s also worth keeping the cost of a boiler installation in mind as a comparison. A new, hydrogen-blend ready boiler will typically cost around £3k to install.


What are the benefits of air source heat pumps?

By investing in a heat pump in your Dulwich home, you will be joining the renewable revolution and will be contributing towards weakening our reliance on fossil fuels. This is a clear benefit. You can also expect to benefit from reduced running costs in the long run. This is because, as the UK power network transitions towards renewable energy, the cost of electricity is expected to fall below the cost of gas. This will allow you to do the right thing for your wallet and for the planet. It’s a win-win!
