An Air to Water Heat Pump is a system that is installed on the outside of your property. It collects air from the outside and transfers it to your water based central heating system.
The heat generated from the system can be used for your hot water supply, underfloor heating and your radiators.
You can currently qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme (ends 31st March 2022). The Clean Heat Grant (£5,000 grants) replaces the RHI scheme in April 2022.
