Did you know? Heat Pumps can often be cheaper than a new Combi Boiler.

Our case study below with a customer from Castle Bytham, Lincolnshire is a great example of where a heat pump can actually be a more affordable and generally better option over a combi boiler with available funding.

Location: Castle Bytham Lincolnshire

Property: Detached 1970’s Bungalow in Castle Bytham, Lincolnshire

Cost for replacing oil combi boiler: £5,600 

Cost for air source heat pump (including 10 radiators): £5,162.

How? Thanks to the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS), the total cost to install an Air Source Heat Pump complete with a new hot water cylinder, pipework, and 10 radiators totalled £5,162.

This price also included the fitting of a new electrical sub board used to power the heat pump and immersion heater.

An installation saving of £438 upfront, straight away, not mention the ongoing running cost savings!

Our average installation cost is even lower at approximately £4,500m

£7,500 Heat Pump Grant Available

The Boiler Upgrade Scheme offers a grant of £7,500 towards replacing fossil fuel heating systems with Air Source Heat Pumps. Eligibility criteria include: 

  • Ownership of the property
  • Installation of a new heating system after 1 April 2022
  • Replacement of oil, gas, electric, or LPG heating systems.
  • A valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) with no outstanding insulation recommendations (changing from May 2024 where insulation recommendations will no longer be required for eligibility).

Get An Estimate Online

Get a free estimate by filling out our online form. We will then review your information, do some of our own research and send you an estimate for a new heat pump, hot water cylinder and wet central heating system within 24 hours. Our estimates are 90% accurate if correct information is supplied.

Heat Loss & Technical Survey

Once you have received an estimate you will need to arrange a full heat loss survey & technical survey so we can ascertain the true heat loss requirements of the property along with all installation requirements. This will allow us to generate a full proposal built bespoke to your property's needs. It's at this stage we will fix the quotation costs.

Heat Pump Installation

Once you have accepted your proposal, we will arrange your installation dates. We will also start your application for the boiler upgrade scheme prior to your installation start date. Pre installation visits are also available before main installation dates to clarify the finer details of your project.

A real time example of a very efficient heat pump installation.

Location: North Scarle, Lincoln. 

Project: Removal of an oil boiler for an air source heat pump. See the live remotely monitored heat meter information embedded along with a description of how to understand the data.

Conslusion: This system has running costs that are cheaper than all fossil fuel alternatives!

How does the graph work? What are SCOP and COP?

COP (Coefficient of Performance) measures the efficiency of a heat pump by comparing the amount of heat produced to the amount of electricity used. A higher COP means the heat pump is more efficient and cheaper to run.

Example: If a heat pump has a COP of 4, this means that for every unit of electricity it uses, it produces four units of heat. So, it’s like buying one cup of coffee and getting three free!

SCOP (Seasonal Coefficient of Performance) is similar to COP but looks at the heat pump’s efficiency over an entire season. This considers changes in weather and how the pump performs under different conditions. SCOP gives a more realistic picture of yearly operating costs.

Why are these important?
Understanding COP and SCOP can help you choose a more efficient heat pump, which translates to lower energy bills and less environmental impact. High COP and SCOP values mean the pump operates more efficiently throughout the year, regardless of temperature changes.

When considering a heat pump, look for one with a higher COP and SCOP rating to ensure you are getting a system that will not only keep your home comfortable but will also be economical in the long run.

How Does A Heat Pump Work?

The Air Source Heat Pump takes heat from the air and uses this energy turning it into a higher temperature using a refrigeration circuit (the same technology that's in your fridge at home). The pump needs electricity to run, but it should use less electrical energy than the heat it produces. From 1kw of electrical energy in, a heat pump can produce up to 4kw of heat energy out!

Using electricity and refrigerant technology, the heat pump compresses refrigerant to increase its temperature. It then condenses back into a liquid to release it as stored heat. Heat is then sent to your heating and hot water cylinder. Heat pumps require hot water cylinders to store energy ready to then be used at your hot water outlets.

Some frequently asked ASHP questions

Absolutely. Air source heat pumps are designed to work efficiently even in colder climates. Some brands guarantee performance down to -25 degrees celsius . Modern technology allows them to extract heat from the air even when temperatures drop, making them a viable and energy-efficient heating solution for the UK’s varying weather conditions. Heat pumps have been operating for decades in colder climates such as Scandinavia.

Air source heat pumps offer several benefits, including reduced energy bills, lower carbon emissions, and improved energy efficiency. With the boiler upgrade scheme grant of £7500, you can benefit from new equipment for a significantly cheaper cost. If you have old radiators and gravity fed hot water the addition of new radiators and a new pressurised hot water cylinder would be significantly cheaper with the boiler upgrade scheme in comparison to a fossil fuel appliance. Heat pumps contribute to a more comfortable indoor environment all year-round.

There are four stages relating to our heat pump installation process. 

Stage 1- An initial estimate which can be created remotely using our form online.  

Stage 2- To conduct a room by room heat loss calculation and full survey of the property. Once we’ve concluded this visit and we’ve determined the project requirements a full proposal would be sent along with the heat loss report, system performance estimate and economic viability study. 

Stage 3- The third and final stage is once a proposal/quotation has been accepted. We would start the boiler upgrade scheme application on your behalf and organise your installation dates. This would be confirmed and approved prior to any manual work starting. We also offer pre installation visits so there is an opportunity to clarify all aspects of the proposed works before work starts. 

Stage 4- Your Glow installation team would start on the agreed dates. The vast majority of our installations start on a Monday and complete on the Friday. Upon completion of works we would commission the system and carry out a client handover which includes our recommendations on how to use the new system. 

Our team strives to deliver a seamless journey from start to finish and we’ll guide you through the process step by step throughout.

In most cases, an air source heat pump can replace or supplement your existing heating system. The extent to which it replaces your current system depends on factors such as the size of your property, insulation, and your heating preferences. Our experts will recommend the best configuration for your specific needs. In order to benefit from the boiler upgrade scheme the heat pump needs to heat the entirety of the home. Hybrid options aren’t currently eligible on the boiler upgrade scheme criteria.

Installation of an air source heat pump typically doesn’t require extensive renovations. However, some minor adjustments might be needed to accommodate the heat pump unit and the associated piping. Our team ensures that the installation process is minimally invasive and takes your property’s aesthetics into consideration.

Yes, the boiler upgrade scheme is available which will allow certain homeowners to claim £7,500 off their heat pump installation.
