Heat Pump Grants: Why Choose An Air Source Heat Pump?

Alva Energy offer heat pump grants.


There are two primary types of air source heat pumps:

  1. Air-to-air heat pumps: These extract heat from outdoor air and use a fan system to directly heat your home, warming up individual rooms.

  2. Air-to-water heat pumps: They capture heat from outside air and distribute it through your central heating system, providing hot water for heating, radiators, or underfloor heating in indoor spaces, offering versatile heating options.

How Do They Work?

The mechanics of an air source heat pump (ASHP) involve drawing heat from outdoor air and transferring it indoors. Using wet central heating systems, it heats radiators and provides hot water.


Much like a refrigerator, heat pumps absorb and move heat to another location.

Some air source heat pumps can even work as cooling systems in the summer. They're usually placed outside buildings, requiring adequate installation space.

How Big Is An Air Source Heat Pump?

Residential air source heat pumps feature an exterior unit comparable in size to a washing machine. They require good airflow and space for installation. For a cost-effective setup, connecting the heat pump to an indoor buffer tank through an existing external wall flue is an option. Concerned about looks? It can also be wall-mounted in the garage's rear or discreetly positioned in the garden for a more aesthetic appeal.
