Heat Pumps

What is a heat pump?

Heat from the sun is always warming our planet. Heat pumps are an eco-friendly way of absorbing the natural heat and using a small helping of electricity to compress the stored heat into a suitable temperature, keeping your home warm and providing your property with hot water.

How do heat pumps work?

The simple explanation is that heat pumps are a wonderful piece of technology that produce more energy for your home than it uses. Taking the organic heat from the air, the ground or water; heat pumps offer a more effective and efficient way of heating up your home, whilst reducing your heating costs.

The science of heat pumps

Heat pumps work through a cycle of compression and evaporation. There are four stages to the process, which are:



Whilst the method of heat transfer is the same, there are three types of heat pumps which are determined by the source of where the heat comes from:

Ground Source – Absorbs heat from the earth
Air Source – Taken from the outside air
Water Source – The air is taken from nearby lakes and ponds

The refrigerant within the heat exchanger, also known as the evaporator, can absorb heat from cold conditions as low as – 20 degrees.



The evaporator refrigerant is compressed which increases the temperature

Condenser (The Second Heat Exchanger):

The refrigerant gas transfers heat into the central heating system, resulting in the refrigerant to go back into a liquid. In the second heat exchanger, the cooler water from the heating system soaks up the heat, which is used for either radiators, underfloor heating, or hot water.

Expansion Valve:

Within this stage the pressure is decreased, further reducing the temperature before beginning the cycle again.

Air Source Heat Pumps vs. Ground Source Heat Pumps

The most popular option out of the two, air source heat pumps sit outside your home and look like a standard air conditioner. Heat from the sun warms the air surrounding us, which is then taken in by a fan. The fan is there to maintain constant flow of warm air encountering the heat exchanger.

Ground source heat pumps collect and use the solar energy found in the earth through pipes underground know as ground loop or ground array. A mixture of water and anti-freeze is then pumped through the pipes transferring the heat below the frost line.

Benefits of Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are one of the best heating systems available today and are highly efficient, with them being considered as the future of greener home heating in the UK. They don’t give off any carbon emissions locally and are able to transfer four times the thermal energy than the electricity they require. Better yet, heat pumps could reduce your current heating bills by 75%.


Efficiency –

Heat pumps offer 300% efficiency whilst gas boilers are recorded to cap out at 94%

Low maintenance


No Fossil Fuels –

Heat pumps rely on electricity to absorb the outside heat

Provides both cooling and heating to the property

Read some of our reviews

I would like to give Five stars for their service. The service is very really good. The guys turned up early in the morning and finished their job at a very high level an standard. Their manager is really good at communicating, very patient and polite. They even visit our house three times to check everything is ready. They are also very happy to come more times until you are 100% satisfied with their job. We will definitely give them more jobs for other insulation if our budget is ready. Really appreciated for their good Team and good work!!!

Rob and Charlie have just done our loft insulation. They were both very polite and left the place spotless! Very happy to turn the heating down straight away as we can feel the effects already. Thanks for coming out on your birthday Rob ! Happy New Year to you all. Thanks so much.

Used this company for loft insulation spray foam. The Installers turned up on time and did a very clean tidy job of the insulation, covering all areas and reaching the hard to get to areas too, such as the tiny eaves. They cleaned up everything after them and left the place looking very tidy. Really pleased with the work that was carried out, and I can already feel that the loft is so much more warmer than before.

The service was transparent and honest from the very start. The guys turned up 1h before, it took a couple of hours to complete the job and another few minutes to clean up. They were polite, respectful with the property and friendly at all times.

We had an excellent experience using Warmer homes solutions. The service was quick and easy and the guys turned up early. They were really good at communicating what they were going to do & the checks that we had to make to sign off the loft insulation. The job itself was perfect - the effects have been felt already one day later. They cleaned up after the job and it was an all round excellent service. I would recommend them if you want to get your loft insulated!
