The energy-efficient heating system for new homes
The technology fitted in our homes is completely gas-free, offering a highly efficient and environmentally friendly heating system.
Think of an air source heat pump as the reverse of a fridge. It extracts heat from the outside air, converting heat into useable energy by passing it through a compressor, where this temperature is increased. The heat is then used for radiators and hot water within your home.
Using reliable technology, the heat pump is able to precisely control the temperature of your property, even in adverse weather conditions (-20°C). This means your new home will be warmed during the winter months, while providing hot water all year round.
Bellway unveiled its Future Home at The University of Salford, an experimental eco house built to trial low-carbon technologies.
The house has been constructed within a chamber at Energy House 2.0, the university’s £16 million research facility which was part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
The Future Home and the wider Energy House 2.0 project will pioneer new ways to build homes, as well as teaching us how we can live in a more environmentally friendly and cost-conscious way.Find out more
Air source heat pumps are currently only available at selected Bellway homes and developments. Please speak with one of our sales advisors at your chosen development to find out more.
An air source heat pump is an alternative way to heat your home, and a more sustainable option than oil or gas heating. Buying new with Bellway ensures your heat pump will be incorporated into the design of your home, providing a cost-effective and low-carbon heating source from the moment you move in.
Unlike a gas boiler, an air source heat pump is designed to provide a low, constant heat, rather than ‘on demand’ heating. Used correctly, an ASHP can be three times more efficient than a gas boiler; better for the environment and your carbon footprint.
If your new home is equipped with an exhaust air heat pump, they replace a traditional cylinder and boiler, and so take up no more space than the gas systems we're used to. If you have an air source heat pump, these are located outside of your home, so there’s no need to compromise on living space.
As we move away from fossil fuels in order to better protect the environment, air source heat pumps offer a low carbon alternative, which when used correctly, can provide efficient heating and hot water to your home.
Yes, the heat pump uses sustainable technology to provide heating and hot water to your home even during the coldest winter months. The system is equipped to deal with temperatures as low as -20°c, and fitted with an electric immersion heater to act as a back-up in extreme conditions.
As with traditional gas boilers, a service every 12 months should be carried out to ensure your equipment is performing as it should be. This work should be undertaken by a trained installer or engineer.
