The future of home heating systems - Heat Pumps

A heat pump is a magical device that extracts the heat from the air, water or ground and compresses it into a usable temperature to provide efficient comfortable heating and hot water to almost any building. We have extensive experience with over 3,000 completed systems since 2006 and know what it takes to design an efficient heat pump system that effectively heats any home and keeps running costs low.


With over 15 years of experience in designing bespoke renewable systems.


We offer a wide range of high-quality systems to suit all project types.


We're also Trustmark accredited and members of the GSHPA association.


What are the different types of heat pumps? 

There are three main types of heat pump: air-source heat pumps, ground-source heat pumps and water-source heat pumps.

What are the running costs of a heat pump? 

A Heat Pump is extremely efficient, especially when correctly designed.  This means that a heat pump can save you money on your energy bills, with low running costs over its entire life span.   

To give you an idea of its efficiency a new gas boiler has an efficiency of around 90% whereas a heat pump has an efficiency of around 400%.   This means that the energy you are using goes further, so you need less of it, which reduces your monthly energy bills. 

The table shows how the running costs of a heat pump compare to common fossil fuel alternatives.

*Please use this table as a guide as energy prices can vary.  Correct as of April 2024.  **Annual running cost prices are based on an average 4-bed detached house with an energy consumption of 25,000kWh per year
