Heat Pumps

Air and Ground Source Heat Pumps are the most efficient and cost effective green technology for heating your home or business. Providing significant savings compared with fossil fuels or electric heat, Heat Pumps can reduce your energy bill without changing the comfort level in your home. Of course, let us know if you have any questions about our Yorkshire Heat Pump solutions and we will be more than happy to assist you further.

Ground Source Heat Pump

Ground Source Heat Pumps

Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPs) use pipes that are buried in the ground to extract heat from the earth. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems and hot water for your home or business.

Air Source Heat Pump

Air Source Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems and hot water for your home or business.

Frequently Asked Questions

Heat Pumps run solely off electricity and provide both heat and hot water so there is no need for gas or oil.

On average heats pump are 350% efficient so for every 1 unit of electricity you put in, you will receive 3.5 units of heat out. Even modern boilers are only around 90% efficient.

A heat pump will lower your electric bill if you are on storage heater or an electric boiler.

If you are on gas or oil then you will no longer need to pay for fossil fuel as they are replaced with a heat pump. It is likely that your electric bill will go up, but by less than you were previously paying for fossil fuel presenting an overall saving.

The cost of the heat pump depends on a number of factors. Larger properties will need a larger unit and therefore the installation cost will be more. An average 3 bedroom semi detached house will need an 11.2kw heat pump with a 250L cylinder and this will cost in the region of £10,000.

The size of the heat pump depends on the insulation levels. Assuming the house was built from 1930 to 1990 then you might need a 14kw heat pump to provide sufficient heating and hot water.

We always aim to size the heat pump to suit both the size of the house and the occupants needs. We always ensure that the heat pump can provide enough heating and hot water in all conditions. Most heat pumps are inverter driven so they can module in order to cope with the changes in demand.

The size of the heat pump depends on the insulation levels. Assuming the house was built from 1930 to 1990 then you might need a 8kw heat pump to provide sufficient heating and hot water.

A heat pump will last as long as a modern boiler, approximately 10-15 years.

The heat pump needs sufficient air flow in order to operate efficiently. This means it needs to be outside and have clearance from any obstructions.

An Air Source heat pump can be located away from the property and the flow and return pipework can be run underground in pre insulated pipe to the building. We usually recommend this to be more than 10m away from the house.

Yes, a heat pump, if sized correctly, can provide 100% of the heating and hot water for a property.

Most heat pumps use refrigerant that operate between +30oc and – 20oc.
