Heat pumps offer a highly efficient and environmentally friendly way of heating your home through radiators or underfloor heating. We only work with the best quality systems from the top manufacturers to ensure longevity, value for money and excellent aftercare service. Generally recognised as the leaders in the industry, Daikin, Panasonic and Mitsubishi all offer top quality heatpumps that H2-ecO are proud to supply, install and maintain.
Heat Pumps – What Are they and how do they work?
Air source heat pumps work by absorbing the heat from the air outside, this heat can then be used to heat your home through radiators, underfloor heating or warm air convectors. Heat pumps can also provide hot water when combined with a cylinder.
Basically, heat pumps work like fridges but in reverse. Warmth can be extracted from the air even in temperatures as low as -15°C. They require electricity to run but are an incredibly efficient way to heat your home. The heat pumps that we supply are capable of producing up to 4 units of heat for every unit of electricity consumed. This makes them very cost effective to run and also a perfect partner to Photovoltaic Electricity generation, where the heat pump demand can be offset by the power generated at the property.
Heat pumps are ideally suited for new-builds or renovation projects but are also a suitable solution for retrofit situations, though the house insulation levels and heat emitter design may require more careful consideration.
When the system is designed and installed correctly, heat pumps are extremely reliable and efficient, and in most cases would be eligible for the Governments RHI (Renewable heat incentive). These payments would generally cover the cost of the system over about a 7 year period, taking energy cost savings into account.

Servicing, maintenance & repair
Heat pumps are required to be serviced annually in order to qualify for the RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive). Even non-RHI systems should be serviced every year to maintain manufacturer’s warranties and to ensure ongoing optimum performance. We are qualified heat pump service engineers and can work on units that we have installed or have been previously set-up by other companies.
