What is an Air Source Heat Pump
• Naturally produced energy for homes across the UK
• All the heating and hot water you’ll ever need - at a fraction of the price you’ve been used to paying
• Kind on your pocket, kind on the environment
An air source heat pump (ASHP) transfers heat from outside to inside a building. or vice versa. Using what’s known as vapour compression refrigeration, an ASHP uses a refrigerant system involving a compressor and a condenser to absorb heat at one place and release it at another. This provides an ambient temperature whatever the time of year or climate.
BENEFIT FROM GRANT ASSISTANCE
Great news! Eco House Solutions is both Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) and Trust Mark Approved. This puts you in line for the new UK Government-backed Green Deal, which means you’ll either be able to offset up to £10,000 of the installation cost or receive a Renewable Heat Initiative (RHI) grant entitling you to around £11,000.
With RHI, you’ll be entitled to a quarterly rebate, payable for the first 7 years after your air source heating system has been installed. What’s more, the RHI offer has been extended until March 2022. One way or the other, make sure you don’t miss out!
What makes Air Source Heat Pumps so outstanding
- Large reduction in energy consumption
- Completely environmentally friendly
- Designed for ease of installation, servicing and repair
- Smart controller design - with 5 operating modes
- DHW up to 60ºC with heat pump operation

Installing an air source heat pump will help you reduce your energy costs. Instead of relying in on coal or electricity-based heating, you’ll be using the outside air – which is far more cost-effective. Plus, ASHP makes it easier to tailor your running costs to your energy needs.
Ideal for heating rooms and water
Our air source heat pumps both heat rooms and your water. There are specific types of pump for optimal combined usage – and at EcoHouse we have a great choice of products which will provide your home with the appropriate flow temperatures for both heat and water.
Year-round heating and cooling
For 24/7 coverage, our versatile and responsive air source heat pumps provide exactly the right amount of heat or coolness, whatever the weather. What’s more, they work superbly with underfloor heating – something else that’s worth considering in your decision to switch away from fossil fuels.
Perfect for when temperatures reach extremes
Air source heat pumps work just as well in the heat of summer as in the depths of winter. In fact, an ASHP can generate temperatures of up to 40 degrees inside, when outdoors it could be as low as minus 30 degrees. The reason is down to the system’s seasonal coefficient of performance (SCOP). A heat pump’s COP measures its efficiency, moderating the power output required to produce the optimum amount of heat for any given time of year.
Easy to install
It takes as little as two days for us to install an air source heat pump. In most circumstances, it’s a very straightforward process and doesn’t normally require any form of planning permission.
The high-quality air source heat pumps we supply pretty much run themselves. That said, your system should be subject to an annual check by one of our engineers to make sure it is performing optimally. This will include cleaning filters, clearing any leaves or dust-build up and ensuring the refrigerant levels are as they should be.
As long as they are properly maintained, an air source heat pump should last up to 20 years – often twice the length of a conventional central heating boiler. Our products all come with 10-year guarantees.
Reduced carbon footprint
Switching from coal or electricity-based heating is one of the best ways to minimise carbon emissions. Air source heat pumps are the perfect solution, because they use the outside air to heat or cool your home and are a type of low carbon heating. Plus you won’t have the hassle of fuel storage or the expense of fuel deliveries.
