Air Source Heat Pump Design

An air source heat pump (ASHP) can reliably supply significantly more energy than it uses allowing a reduction in the running costs of many homes ­– even at temperatures as low as -20˚C. To ensure that an air source heat pump is operating efficiently it is important that the heat pump is correctly designed. Our design process adheres to the following steps:

Heat loss:

One of our initial steps is to carry out a room by room heat loss calculation of the property in accordance with MCS standard MIS3005. This process guarantees that the heat pump and associated equipment is appropriately sized to match the demands of the property and also ensures compliance with MCS standards.

Equipment selection:

Based on the heat demand and location of the property we are then able to suitably size the equipment. The equipment selected would typically include the heat pump, domestic hot water cylinder and any auxiliary equipment required and would meet the space heating and hot water demands of the property.

Estimated running costs and benifits

We appreciate the importance of an accurate estimation of the financial savings of installing a heat pump. As well as the payments which you will receive through the RHI (Renewable heat incentive) we also aim to show you the savings that can be made against oil and LPG. We have found that well designed and installed heat pump system will save you up to 60%. Even after the RHI tariff payments cease after seven years you will continue to benefit from the lower running costs.
