What Size Air Source Heat Pump Do I Need For My House?

The size of air source heat pumps for new builds is easy to calculate, because, to comply with building regulations in the UK, properties must have had certain levels of insulation, which make the application of a renewable heating system all the more viable.

However, when considering the application of renewable heating systems to older properties, we would need to assess the properties of heat loss by way of a detailed survey so we can facilitate a proposal. This is when it would be prudent to speak to a specialist to see what will be needed for these calculations and asses the properties ability to retain the heat produced. If you would like to speak to our in-house renewable specialist based in our Cirencester office, please contact enquiries@cpjefferies.co.uk

Important questions to ask when getting quotes for an ASHP:

  • Is the company MCS registered?

  • Are my existing radiators/underfloor heating suitable for an ASHP system?

  • What is RHI and how is it implemented?

  • How does the system work?

  • What is the difference in how we run a boiler over a renewable system?

Air source heat pumps range from as small as 3kW to larger units at 17kW and can be installed into most properties.

Issues to be wary of when receiving quotes for ASHP installations

Unfortunately, with call outs and maintenance needed for certain air source heat pump systems, it is making us more aware of installations that have been designed incorrectly and installed incorrectly - which in turn presents issues with efficiency and cost of running the system. If you have any queries or are concerned about your ASHP system, feel free to contact us and arrange a visit from our specialist.

Due to current legislation, regulations and affiliations with governing bodies, we have an onus to provide the correct information so as to make an informed decision.

If you would like to chat about what the process of installing an air source heat pump system entails, then please do contact us here for a no-obligation chat with our friendly specialist.
