Air Source Heat Pump
Choosing an air source heat pump for your home is an excellent way to help the planet, contribute to the UK’s efforts to have net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and save yourself money on your energy bills.
Switching from an old (G rated) gas boiler or electric storage heaters to an air source heat pump could save you between £385 and £830 per year (based on a 3 bed semi-detached home)*. Also, it could save between 2900kg and 2000kg of carbon emissions per year.
Plus, the government is currently offering a £7,500 grant as part of its Boiler Upgrade Scheme to home-owners looking to switch from a gas boiler to low-carbon air source heat pump.

How an air source
heat pump works
In a nutshell, an air source heat pump takes energy from the air outside and uses it to heat water which then warms living spaces via radiators or underfloor heating.
In more detail, the heat pump gathers the energy in the air outside and then uses it to heat a special fluid (typically a refrigerant). As the fluid warms up, it becomes a gas. The warmth in the gas is then compressed to increase its temperature further. This heat then warms the water in your radiators, underfloor heating, hot taps or showers.
Heat pumps work on a cycle and once the gas has warmed the water, it cools down, reverts to a liquid and the cycle of heat transfer begins again.
The whole process is powered by electricity but compared to the output of heat generated, heat pumps are highly efficient and low-carbon.
£7,500 government grants available
As an accredited installer, we can access a £7,500 government grant towards the cost of your heat pump as part of the Boiler Upgrade Scheme to encourage homeowners to switch from gas boilers to low-carbon heat pumps.
We’ll confirm your eligibility during a home visit.
There are numerous considerations when calculating how much a heat pump will save you on your energy bill but the indicative savings are impressive. During our home visit we’ll take into account the following factors to give you an accurate expected saving per year:
The size and type of your property
The number of occupants
Make & model of the heat pump you choose
The type of heating you’re replacing
The weather where you live
Efficient, efficient, efficient
An air source heat pump is designed to last around 20 years (25% longer than a gas boiler) and is around 3 times more efficient than traditional gas boilers because hardly any energy is wasted during its process of heating water. Very clever technology!

Getting an air source
Get in touch with us and we’ll ask a few questions over the phone or by email and then we’ll book you a FREE home visit for a Home Surveyor to come and take a look at your property.
Our friendly surveyor will confirm suitability and advise on the heat pump that will best meet your requirements.
We aim to get back to you by the next working day
Getting the most from your home heating
Choosing to go green with a heat pump is a great way to future-proof your home as the government begins to introduce legislation to make it mandatory, starting with the ban on gas boilers in any newly built property from 2035 onwards. The UK government has a big target to reach net-zero by 2050** and your contribution will help.
The government estimates that millions of heat pumps will be installed in the UK in the coming years.

Heat Pump FAQs
An air source heat pump takes thermal energy from the air outside and transfers that heat to the inside of the home. The clever technology works even when temperatures outside are below zero.
Yes, ground source heat pumps are also available but not currently a service offered by Evolve.
They are around three times more efficient than a boiler so they are an excellent choice if you have an old boiler that needs replacing. The UK government is working towards phasing out the installation of new boilers, in favour of heat pumps because of their excellent energy efficient performance.
Around two to five days is typical but it varies from property to property, depending on what the heat pump is replacing, the configuration of the heating system and property size. Our Home Energy Surveyor will advise during their home visit.
£100s per year on your heating bill but it’s hard to be more specific than that without assessing your current energy usage, current heating system, heating demand and property size. Our Home Energy Surveyor will advise during their home visit.
