air source heat pumps

At Alto Energy we understand that the Ground Source Heat Pump route isn't for everyone, this may simply be down to the fact that you may not have the ground required in order to do so. Many people then believe that sticking with their current/previous heating system is the way to go, when in actual fact Air Source Heat Pumps are becoming more efficient, and in some cases more efficient than Ground Source Heat Pumps. 

Don't worry if you're not sure which heat pump is better suited for your property, our Sales team with their Design Expertise will be able to pick out the correct heat pump for your project in hand.

What Is An Air Source Heat Pump?

Air Source Heat Pumps are an efficient, alternative form of heating. The Air Source Heat Pump extracts renewable, solar energy from the air to produce sufficient heat to comfortably cater for all of your heating and hot water requirements.

Air Source Heat Pumps work by moving heat stored in the air into the building, unlike traditional fossil fuel and biomass systems which create heat through the burning of a fuel. This means that Air Source Heat Pumps don't have to work as hard to produce heat, and as a consequence the production of this heat is far more efficient than traditional methods. Our range of Air Source Heat Pumps typically have a coefficient of performance of 3.5, which means that for every 1kW of electricity used, 3.5kW of useful heat energy can be produced.

Air Source Heat Pumps can work with any form of distribution system, however the best performance is achieved when it is partnered with Underfloor Heating which enables the lowest possible flow temperatures.

At Alto Energy, we have the design expertise to provide you the most efficient Air Source Heat Pump for your project, delivered through our trusted network on Partners.

The Benefits of Air Source Heat Pumps

Choosing an Air Source Heat Pump from Alto Energy for your project has many benefits, and through our unique experience and expertise we ensure that these benefits are optimised. 


First and foremost, Air Source Heat Pumps provide a consistent and reliable form of heating for you or your customer. 


Air Source Heat Pumps are very efficient when they are designed and installed correctly. Our business model at Alto Energy is to combine our unique design capabilities with the skill and expertise of our installation partners, to ensure that the end result is a complete heat and DHW system that costs as little as possible to run.

Savings versus traditional electric, oil and LPG heating systems can be as high as a 60% reduction in running costs.


The Government created a incentive scheme known as the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) in 2014. This scheme rewards adopters of renewable heating technologies such as Air Source Heat Pumps, which saves energy and therefore helps the UK reduce its carbon emissions and meet its renewable energy targets.

People who join the scheme receive quarterly payments for seven years for the amount of clean, green, renewable heat energy it is estimated that their system produces.
