Free air source heat pumps for those on benefits in Scotland

What are air source heat pumps?
Air source heat pumps are a renewable energy technology that extracts heat from the outside air and uses it to heat your home. They work like a reverse fridge, by absorbing heat from the outdoor air, compressing it, and releasing it into your home. This is usually through a radiator or underfloor heating

How do they work?
Air source heat pumps work by using electricity to power a compressor and a refrigerant, which circulates between an outdoor unit (the evaporator) and an indoor unit (the condenser). The outdoor unit absorbs heat from the air, and the indoor unit releases it into your home. They work best at lower temperatures and are ideal for well-insulated buildings.

What do they do?
Air source heat pumps can provide heat for radiators, underfloor heating, and hot water therefore making them a versatile heating system. They are also quiet, low maintenance, and have a long lifespan.

How are they fitted?
We fit air source heat pumps to the external wall of your home or we situate them on the ground near your home. They require electricity to run, and you may need to upgrade your home’s insulation to maximise their efficiency. That’s not a problem as insulation is also free for eligible households with the ECO 4 scheme.
