How Much Does Heat Pump Installation Cost?


Preparing for next winter may not be at the forefront of your mind right now, but getting ready by updating your system and installing a new heat pump is a great way to stay ahead of the curve before the colder months roll around. You can switch to an air-source heat pump instead of a gas boiler so your home’s heating runs on electricity rather than gas. However, although you may be interested in having a heat pump installed at your home, you might be confused about whether you can afford a service like this. So, if you’re searching for “heat pump installers near me”, here’s what you can expect to pay for a heat pump installation.

Heat Pump Installation Prices

Different heat pumps will vary in price, but for an air source heat pump, you are probably looking at something in the range of £12-£15,000 inclusive of system design and installation. Despite this, however, you will need to factor in the £5,000 government funding under the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS). As a result of this funding, you will typically be looking to pay between £7-£10,000 for your heat pump.


What Factors Will Impact Installation Costs?

There are several factors that can affect the cost of your heat pump. These can include:

 

  • The size of your property: Bigger properties will require bigger pumps, or more of them, in order to heat the bigger space, which will therefore end up costing you more.

  • Existing pipework and radiator upgrades: The costs mentioned above include the cost of some radiator replacements which can increase the price. However, every home is different and you may not need to update any of your existing heating systems.

  • Existing insulation or lack of it: One thing to consider is how much insulation your home already has. It may be a requirement of your BUS funding that your home has insulation as heat pumps work best in insulated homes. Therefore you may have to pay for insulation if you don’t already have it.

  • Where your home is situated: If your home gets a lot of direct sunlight or is located in a warmer region, you will need a smaller system which will save you money.
