Air Source Heat Pumps

I have been installing Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) for over 3 years. This fantastic piece of equipment creates hot water, the same as a normal boiler. The difference between a boiler and a ASHP is that you get up to 4kW of heat for every Kilowatt of electricity, whereas  standard boilers work at 1 to 1. Because this system is so incredibley efficent the Government offer an incentive to help with the cost of the installation. The offer is called the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). The RHI works by giving you a finacial reward for every Kilowatt of heat your system produces, the RHI is paid quarterly in to your bank account. Domestic RHI systems receive the incentive for 7 years, commercial systems for 20 years. I install, repair and maintain Air Source Heat Pumps.

I have chosen to work with Vaillant heat pumps because of the reputation they have for outstanding quality, reliabiltiy and service.

Vaillant aroTherm Air Source Heat Pumps

aroTHERM is Vaillant’s second generation air-to-water heat pump range. Developed inline with the exacting standards and precision engineering you would expect when you choose Vaillant, this MCS accredited heat pump range will ensure that we have one of the most adaptable heat pump system offerings on the market, ensuring high performance, quality and comfort levels.

Features and benefits:

Blue fin coated evaporator as standard - Corrosion protection and water repellent to increase the product life time and efficiency. Helps prevent water ‘sticking’ to the evaporator which can lead to ice build-up making the heat pump go into de-icing. Extra corrosion protection against saline (salty) environments increasing the life of the evaporator

Inverter driven technology - Modulating compressor - Heat pump only works as hard as is required to heat the property giving increased system efficiency, lower running costs and a longer lasting appliance

Low sound power levels from 58 dBA on the 5kW - Recognised independently by the Noise Abatement Society with the “Quiet Mark” as one of the quietest heat pumps on the market

High quality you expect from Vaillant - Precision German engineering, built with quality at its centre as well as operating in conditions down to -20°C

Monobloc hermetically sealed air-to-water heat pump - Quick and easy to install, with only electrical and water connections required

MCS accredited

ErP rated A++ when installed with the VRC 700

Air Source Heat Pump Projects

This system is designed to provide Domestic Hot Water and Heating to a very large house. The system consists of 3No. 11kW Vaillant AroTherm Air Source Heat Pumps, 1No. Vaillant 300Ltr DHW Cylinder (Addidtional Storage) and a 4000Ltr Buffer Vessal.

This project was an outbuilding used as a Pool House and Bar. We installed a Vaillant arotherm 8kW ASHP on to the new under floor heating system. 

We installed a retro fit underfloor heating system to the newly refurbished extension with a Vaillant arotherm 5kW ASHP. This client has a 4kW Solar PV Sytem with the Tesla DC Battery system. 

This project consisted of a full ground floor underfloor heating system with a Vaillant arotherm 11kW ASHP
