Air Source Heat Pump

Generating renewable heat and hot water for your home using an Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) can reduce annual energy bills by up to 50%, with the technology also benefiting from generous financial incentives.

An Air Source Heat Pump is a highly efficient way to generate heating and hot water for your home, even on the coldest days.

The pump works by capturing heat from the outside air and using it to heat water or living spaces, such as through a radiator or underfloor heating system. The process works in a similar way to that of a fridge, only in reverse.

The lifecycle of a pump can be in excess of 20 years and thanks to the generous financial incentives such a system may qualify for, the payback period is often greatly reduced.

As the world moves away from fossil fuels and towards renewable sources of energy, this type of technology is likely to become common place and continues to grow in popularity. As part of a long term commitment to clean energy, it is a a cost-effective and efficient solution.

Installing an air source heat pump

An air source heat pump will generally be placed at ground level on an exterior wall. The units themselves are very quiet and will work at temperatures as low as -25c¹.

Our units are 1,000mm wide and between 740 to 1350mm tall, with a depth of 330mm. You also need to allow 300mm behind and 1,000mm in front of the unit.

An installation is usually completed in under 4 days, including any upgrades that may be needed for the existing central heating system. When designing the best system for you, we will check and confirm whether any such works may be required.

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive is a financial incentive that was introduced by the government as a way to encourage the use of renewable heating systems.

When an Air Source Heat Pump has been installed in your home, you can apply for the incentive through Ofgem. If you qualify, then you will receive quarterly payments over the course of seven years, in relation to the amount of renewable energy you use.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to install an air source heat pump (ASHP)?

It takes around 3 days for an ASHP to be installed.

Are the savings guaranteed?

Because we are not in control of the way you use electricity in your home (we’re not Big Brother, we won’t be watching you!), we cannot guarantee the savings.

The amount you save will depend on how much energy you use and also what happens with electricity prices.

What we can guarantee is that the technologies we supply and our accelerator plan will ensure that any energy you are using is coming to you at the lowest possible cost. From helping you generate your own solar energy and renewable heat, to maximising the savings and benefits of these technologies by using a battery, and automatically switching you, so you are always on the best available tariff for the rest.

There are many reasons why the level of saving might change, such as:

  • If energy prices rise unexpectedly then you will save even more.
  • If you suddenly use significantly less energy that you were doing before, then because you’re using less, you’ll be saving less.

Either way, you win!

Does the Anesco Smart Energy system really work?

Yes! And we should know, we’ve tested it in our own homes – you can read more about that in our case studies.

These firsthand experiences have helped us to shape and enhance what we offer to our customers. Because we have tested the system ourselves, we know there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’. Every household is different, which is why we work closely with every one of our customers, to design the perfect system for them.

Anesco Smart Energy combines the best technology on the market, with our team’s extensive experience in the renewables space – a sector we have been working in for almost a decade. Having the ability to automatically switch energy tariffs whenever it is beneficial to do so, is a key part of giving homeowners a complete home energy system. We do the hard work for you, by pulling together the data and crunching the numbers, to ensure each individual customer has the most cost-effective system for them.

Is this system right for me?

If you use a lot of energy, for example if you are a family; you have a larger property; if you have electric heating; or you drive an electric vehicle; then our energy system will help minimise your energy bills.

Existing solar can be made to work harder for you by storing the excess so that you can use it later, and if you don’t have solar, we can see if there is a suitable way of installing it and do it for you at the same time. Our surveyor can see if you would be suitable for a heat pump too. We will only ever recommend systems that are worthwhile to you, if the system won’t save you money and pay for itself, then we won’t recommend it.

By combining our products with the Home Energy Care Plan we accelerate your savings by switching you automatically to the lowest available tariff. We use our knowledge of your energy flexibility to make sure your battery takes full advantage of any off-peak periods and keep your bills as low as possible. And of course, you’ll be doing your bit for the planet, by lowering your carbon footprint.
