The benefits of air source heat pumps over traditional boilers

Air source heat pumps are a newer way of heating homes that has many benefits over traditional boilers. While boilers have been the norm for many years, air source heat pumps are becoming more popular as people realise the many advantages they offer. In this article, we will discuss the benefits of air source heat pumps over traditional boilers.

One of the main benefits of air source heat pumps is their energy efficiency. They can be up to 400% more efficient than traditional boilers, which means that they use much less energy to heat your home. This is because they extract heat from the air outside, which is a free and renewable source of energy. In contrast, boilers burn fossil fuels, which are not only expensive, but also contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.

Another benefit is that they can be used for both heating and cooling your home. During the summer months, air source heat pumps can be reversed to provide cool air, which means that you don’t need to invest in a separate air conditioning unit. This can save you money on energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint.

Air source heat pumps are also very easy to install and maintain. Unlike boilers, which require a lot of space and pipework, air source heat pumps are compact and can be installed outside your home. They also require very little maintenance, as they have few moving parts and don’t need to be serviced as often as boilers.

In addition to their energy efficiency and ease of use, air source heat pumps also have a long lifespan. While boilers typically last around 10-15 years, air source heat pumps can last up to 25 years or more with proper maintenance. This means that you won’t need to replace your heating system as often, which can save you money in the long run.

Lastly, they are a more eco-friendly option than traditional boilers. As mentioned earlier, they use renewable energy sources to heat your home, which means that they produce fewer carbon emissions than boilers. This can help reduce your carbon footprint and contribute to a cleaner, more sustainable future.

With all these benefits in mind it’s no wonder that many developers are choosing to put air source heat pumps in their new homes. Here are some of the new homes we have available which have air source heat pumps installed-
