Air Source Heat Pumps are becoming increasingly accessible, along with an entire range of low-carbon heating systems. With the benefits of reducing our carbon footprints and also our energy bills, heat pumps are set to become as familiar in domestic homes as the traditional gas boilers. The International Energy Agency, in their latest report, stressed that no new gas boilers should be sold after 2025 if the government commitment of Net Zero targets are to be achieved by 2050. Air and Ground Source Heat pumps are recognised as the best option for an efficient, cost-effective, low-carbon alternative to heating homes in the foreseeable future.
How it Works
An air source heat pump works by absorbing heat from the air into a fluid (a refrigerant) as it travels through a looped system of pipes. The process increases the temperature of the liquid until it transforms into a gas. This gas is then compressed to create heat which is transferred to water through a heat exchanger. This process continues until its warm enough to provide you with central heating and hot water. It’s beautifully simple, efficient, safe and well proven.
Benefits of Air Source Heat Pumps
Today heat pumps are considered the most efficient and cost effective heating in the marketplace. They are recognisably environmentally friendly, and they can drastically reduce your carbon footprint and energy bills. Air Source Heat Pumps offer an ideal way to heat your property and produce hot water whilst saving money and the environment.
Renewable Heat Incentive
The Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (Domestic RHI) is a government financial incentive to promote the use of renewable heat. People who join this scheme and stick to its guidelines will receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green renewable heat it’s estimated their system produces.

Further reading and history of air source heat pumps
Many people still believe that heat pump technology is a recent innovation and, on this basis, are concerned that the systems may be unproven or at an early stage in their evolution. The truth however is that heat pump technology has been established for more than 150 years. In 1856 an Austrian mineral processor named Peter von Rittinger was credited with inventing the first-ever Air Source Heat Pump which he used to dry out marshes so that they could be mined for salt. The industry is now served by some of the most trusted household names such as Mitsubishi, Vaillant, Daikin, Samsung and Hitachi. The development of heat pump technology is still continuing with advances in compressor and controls technology in particular enabling systems to be more efficient and easier to control. Heat pump technology is reliable, effective, efficient and is here to stay.
What We Do
Wright Renewable Heating have recruited a small but vastly experienced team to supply, install and maintain ground and air source heat pumps to the existing housing stock (retro-fit), new build homes and the social housing sectors.
Every system is designed to fit your precise requirements and is tailored specifically to your home. We will visit you at home to conduct a survey of your requirements and carefully explain how you will get the best out of your air source heating system.
Our fully accredited and experienced team will be on-site for between 2 and 4 days to install your system including changing your radiators if required, installing a new cylinder and of course the heat pump itself.
Once installation is complete your system will be commissioned for use and you will be presented with a handover pack explaining how you should best use the system for maximum benefit.
Maintenance & Repair
We will conduct regular annual maintenance on your system to ensure optimal efficiency and continued RHI compliance and in the unlikely event of any system failure or sub-optimal performance all our installations are guaranteed and remedial works will be completed free of charge.
