How Much Does an Air Source Heat Pump Cost?

Air source heat pump costs have recently become the subject of many discussions on the home energy efficiency front, as the Boiler Upgrade Scheme opened for applications last November. The Scheme offers a grant of £5,000 towards the cost of buying and installing an air source heat pump.

The Scheme seemingly goes to show that the Government has air source heat pumps firmly in their radar as a solution for energy efficient home heating systems of the future. And for the first time in history we are looking at a heating system for our homes that does not combust any fuel but rather moves heat from one place to another.
