What installing an air source heat pump (ASHP) entails is important for your project, as it may affect certain parts of your build, from the timeline of when to get an installer on board to where it's located and the scale of your plant room. 

While the installation of an air source heat pump isn't as complex and disruptive as some alternatives such as a ground source heat pump, it still requires a professional specialist to specify and install your system to ensure it's working its very best.
