What Are Air Source Heat Pumps?

Air source heat pumps offer an energy-efficient solution to warm your Stranraer home, potentially leading to reduced energy expenses.

Situated outdoors, typically at the back or side of a building, air source heat pumps function by extracting heat from the outdoor air, which is then transferred to the refrigerant.

During the refrigeration cycle, the extracted heat is elevated to higher temperatures. Notably, these heat pumps can operate efficiently even when Stranraer's temperatures drop below zero degrees.

While air source heat pumps require electricity for operation, their eco-friendliness is enhanced by the constant renewal of heat extracted from the air.

  • Potential reduction in energy bills, especially when transitioning from electric heating
  • Easy installation with minimal disruption to your Stranraer property
  • Cost-effective compared to ground source heat pumps

What Type of Air Source Heat Pumps Are Available?

Different properties and clients will have their own set of requirements, therefore a consultation with one of our experts can ensure you'll get the most efficient heat pump that's right for you.

Air-To-Water

ashp stranraer air to water

This system employs the wet central heating system in a property to distribute heat.

The refrigeration cycle takes place within the air source heat pump located outside the building, where water is heated and transported to and from the structure through insulated pipes.

These systems are well-suited for radiators and underfloor heating systems, delivering heat at a lower temperature over an extended duration.

Air-to-Water heat pumps are designed to efficiently heat both the air and water in a property, offering a comprehensive solution for both space heating and hot water needs.

Air-To-Air

ashp stranraer air to air

This system generates warm air, which is then circulated by fans to heat a building.

The refrigeration process occurs within the outdoor heat pump, where hot gas is directed through a fan attached to a wall or ceiling.

However, this option is not ideal if you need hot water, as Air-To-Air heat pumps do not heat the water within a property. You will need an additional heat source to ensure hot running water throughout your home.

This system heats faster than radiators and offers robust conditioning for the entire house.

Financial Benefits and Incentives of Air Source Heat Pumps in Stranraer

ASHPs can significantly reduce your carbon footprint and energy costs, relying on renewable air as a heat source.

The extent of your savings depends on your current fuel choice. Opting to replace your electric heating system with a heat pump could yield greater savings compared to transitioning from natural gas.

In Stranraer, the installation cost of an air source heat pump ranges from £3000 to £10,000.  Variables such as property size and energy requirements play a role in determining the overall investment needed.

Over time, however, you could expect significant savings on your energy bills, making this an economically appealing option for both homes and businesses in Stranraer.

ECO4 Grant funding in Scotland

The ECO4 scheme in Scotland offers grants to homeowners and private tenants to enhance energy efficiency and reduce heating expenses. Available until March 2026, this government-funded program aims to lower energy bills and decrease carbon emissions.

Through the scheme, energy suppliers must provide grants for energy-saving measures across three categories: heating, insulation, and low-carbon technologies. These measures can include cavity wall insulation, solid wall insulation, solar panels, and heat pumps.

For a household to qualify for the ECO4 grant, it must meet both of the following conditions:

Energy Rating: The property must have a low energy rating, specifically in the E to G range. This means the property's Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) should indicate an energy efficiency rating within this range.

High Energy Costs: The property must have high energy costs. Ofgem typically defines high energy costs for properties that use electric heating or are off the gas grid, relying on alternative heating sources like oil or LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) boilers.

In addition, a member of the household must be in receipt of one of the following means-tested benefits:
  • Working Tax Credits
  • Child Tax Credits
  • Income Support
  • Income-based ESA
  • Income-based JSA
  • Pension Savings Credit
  • Pension Guarantee Credit
  • Housing Benefit
  • Universal Credit
