The SpotDif guide to heat pump quotes

Heat pumps are the future for Net Zero heating. But if you don't know the difference between an air-source heat pump and a geothermal model, SpotDif is here to help. We'll compare heat pump quotes from trusted suppliers and installers to save you time and money when choosing your new heating system. 

 

Heat pumps have evolved rapidly. With new hotter heat pumps entering the market, they're a highly efficient way to warm our homes. Unlike conventional gas boilers, a heat pump converts 1kW of energy into four times the heat. Additionally, their low emissions make them a fantastic alternative to fossil fuel-powered central heating. 

 

With generous government grants for heat pumps available to support low-carbon heating, is now the time to make the switch? We'll help you find and compare the best heat pump installation quotes in your area for the most competitive deal and a great price. And because our installers are fully qualified, you'll have peace of mind knowing you're getting the best service.

Heat pumps 101

Incorporating heat pump technology into your central heating system is one of the most effective ways to lower your bills and carbon footprint. But is a heat pump worth it? Here are some of the benefits: 

 

  • Reduced household bills
  • Low or no emissions if you use solar power
  • Highly efficient even in cold temperatures
  • Endlessly sustainable, relying on unlimited heat from the air or ground
  • Precision control can be utilised for heating or cooling

  • Incredibly quiet

  • Low maintenance

  • Long lifespan of up to 25 years, compared to 10 years for a gas boiler 

 

So, which is the best match for your home? Here's a quick rundown of the two most common systems. We've also covered the cost of heat pumps to give you an idea of unit and installation prices. 

 


Air source heat pumps


Air source heat pumps are quick and straightforward to install and suit most properties. Monobloc systems have a single outside unit, while split systems have a separate indoor unit. Installing an air source heat pump generally falls under permitted development rights and doesn't require planning permission. 

 

Air-source heat pumps absorb heat from the air, exchanging it with a compressed fluid. This stored heat powers your radiators, underfloor heating, and hot water. 

 

Pros

  • Eligible for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme

  • Easy to install

  • Low maintenance and long lifespan

  • High energy efficiency

  • Can be used for heating and cooling

  • Low carbon heating

  • Can be used for heating and hot water

 

Cons

  • Lower heat supply than a gas boiler

  • Less efficient when the temperature drops below 0°C

  • Can be noisy

  • You may need to replace radiators


Ground source or geothermal heat pumps  


Ground-source heat pumps, sometimes known as geothermal heat pumps, draw heat from the ground in a similar way to air-source heat pumps. As a result, they're even more efficient and reliable than other heat pumps. However, they have different installation requirements, requiring around three times more land than the floor area of your home. 

 

Ground loops or digging boreholes significantly increase the cost of your installation. Nevertheless, you'll recoup your costs faster due to more significant savings on your energy bills. 

 

Pros

  • Eligible for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme

  • Highly energy efficient 

  • Inexhaustible energy supply

  • Low carbon heating

  • Virtually noiseless

  • Increases property value 

 

Cons 

  • Soil type can affect energy efficiency

  • High installation costs

  • Requires a large garden or plot of land

  • Not easy to retrofit

Factors affecting heat pump quotes

What are the factors affecting heat pump quotes? Cost is obviously important, but you should always prioritise a quality installation over a cheap one, as this could save you in the long run. You should also check whether the installer's proposed timetable aligns with your needs. 

 

These are the primary factors that impact your installation cost:  


Heat pump type and capacity 

The size and efficiency rating of your heat pump are critical factors. First and foremost, you’ll need a model that matches your energy needs.  

 

  • A heat pump that is too small could struggle to heat your home efficiently, resulting in higher energy bills and increased repair costs.  


  • Too large a heat pump will waste energy for reduced heating efficiency.  

 

Obviously, the larger your heat pump, the higher the cost. In addition, you're looking at a lengthier and more costly installation. 

 

An air source heat pump can usually be installed in a day. You'll pay more for a ground source heat pump installation requiring heat loops or boreholes. To keep costs down, you could tackle the groundwork yourself. 

 


Location considerations

Another factor impacting installation costs is your location. Difficult-to-reach locations or challenging soil conditions can cause costs to mount up. You'll also need to be aware of the proximity to your neighbours if you're installing an air source heat pump.



Installation complexity

Installation costs vary based on project complexity. Modifying existing ductwork, fitting thermostats or installing ground loops all impact your installation costs. For example, installing a ground loop or borehole for geothermal heat pumps can cost upwards of £6,000.

Where to look for heat pump quotes
