The Advantages of Air Source Heat Pumps

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

Reliable Heating System

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

Reduced Heating Costs

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.

Government Grants


Generally speaking, the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is applied where a single property, which can receive a domestic Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), is being heated by a renewable heating system. The EPC acts as proof to show that the property is assessed as a domestic dwelling, as well as provided the deemed heat requirement for the property on which the payments are based.


If the renewable heating system is to be heating a commercial, public or industrial premises, or a heat pump system is delivering heat to multiple residential premises, then you would need to apply for the Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). This can include the likes of schools, hospitals, churches, large or small businesses, as well as multi-residential buildings.

Comply With Building Regulations

Heat pumps and underfloor heating save carbon dioxide emissions compared with conventional fossil fuel technologies and radiator distribution. These carbon savings contribute to towards your compliance with Part L of the Building Regulations.
