Air Source Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the air outside to heat your home and hot water.

Getting the most from the system

Here are some key tips on how to use the system in the most efficient and cost-effective way: 

  • Set the room thermostat to around 19 – 21°C.
  • It takes longer to heat your home than traditional central heating. Turning your heating on and off regularly will cost you more. You may also feel cold for longer whilst waiting for your home to heat up.
  • Use the room thermostat to change the temperature and only do it by only a few degrees at a time. If you’re too warm just turn the temperature down by a few degrees. If you drop it too much it will turn the system off. This will then take a long time and cost a lot more to heat your home again.
  • If you’re not at home during the day, it’s better to keep the heating on at a slightly lower temperature rather than switch it off completely.
