Installing a heat pump to your home or your building can reduce your gas or boiler bills significantly. They reduce the need for fossil fuel based energy and they will reduce the expense on your gas, oil and boiler bills. 

While this is a great advantage, your heat pump will rely on electricity, so you may see an increase in your electricity bill. 

Environmental Impacts

Heat pumps rely less on fossil fuels and therefore, their impact on the environment is way less harmful than that of traditional heating systems. 

They produce no emissions and operate extremely efficiently. Because of this, they are contributing a limited amount of damage from fossil fuels and releasing no air pollutants. 


Heat pumps are extremely efficient. They use existing heat and air to warm your home or building. Their efficiency comes from their ability to maximise the heat output in comparison to the energy they use up. 

In colder months, however, you may run into small issues producing heat with a heat pump in cases where your pump ices over. 


Having a heat pump installed can be extremely easy to use and maintain. They are user friendly and simple to control. If your pump is installed correctly, a user should be able to control their desired temperature through an app or an external control system. 

An issue that a user may encounter is a clogged air filter, however, proper cleaning and maintenance of your heat air pump will prevent this issue. 


There is a common misconception that air source heat pumps are loud, however, with their recent developments and newer technology, they are now extremely quiet additions to your home or building.
