Is your home heat pump ready? 

Heat pumps are a low carbon technology that provide homes with wet central heating and hot water, replacing fossil fuel burning system.

35% of the UK's carbon emissions come from domestic heating. 

In order for the government to reach it's net-zero target, they must tackle the issue of domestic heating. This involves improving the heating systems and heat loss' of UK properties. In order to achieve this, the government is offering grant funding to assist with the cost of implementing carbon reducing measures, such as heat pumps, to UK homes. 

So you're probably asking yourself, is my property heat pump ready?

We've been in the heat pump industry for many years, so we understand that it can be an absolute mind field of jargon and contradictory information. That's why we've created this service, so that you can have you property assessed by an independent company, in a clear and concise manor, and have all your heat pump questions answered. 

Can I check if my home is heat pump ready myself? 

We always recommend obtaining expert advice when it comes to installing a heat pump, due to their unique set ups and requirements. However, we've create a short document on the areas that should be looked at when installing a heat pump. You can use this document to make a basic assessment yourself, or to get an idea of what should be being checked by heat pump installers/surveyors when they visit your property. 
 

 

 



What's included in the "is my home heat pump ready" report? 

Our team will conduct an extensive heat loss survey on your property, assessing the following areas on a room-by-room basis - this will tell us how big the heat pump and radiators will need to be, to sufficiently heat the property.

  1. Building Construction

  2. Building Age

  3. Insulation Levels

  4. Windows

  5. Floor Area

  6. Roof Area

  7. External Wall Area

  8. Internal Heat Distribution

  9. Room Volume

  10. Desired Room Temperatures

Our team will then look at the properties existing system, to determine whether this will need to be upgraded. 

  1. Diameter of Piping

  2. Condition of Piping

  3. Radiator Sizes

  4. Electricity Connection

  5. Incoming Fuse Size

  6. Proposed System Location 

After the survey has been completed, our team will write an in-depth report of our findings. The report will include all the information from our findings, including information on why we look at each particular area and how this relates to the property. The report will also include a room-by-room heat loss table, showing the heat loss of each room. Additionally, a radiator schedule will be included, indicating which radiators need to be upgraded and what size they will need to be. 

What happens after I've got the report? 

Once you have been sent your report, you will know whether your home is heat pump ready or not. The report may state that the property isn't heat pump ready yet but by making a few small changes it will be. 

As part of our service, we offer a complementary consultation. During the consultation, we will answer any questions about the report and provide guidance on the best course of action going forward. We will also provide access to our installer network and liaise with them to attain a full quote. Furthermore, if you decide to go with a quote from an installer in our network, we will continue to provide support throughout the whole installation process. 

If you wish to use a different installer, you will be able to use the data in the report to attain quotes from other heat pump installers.
