Ecodan for your Self-Build project

Ecodan air source heat pumps will reduce your environmental impact and help cut your energy bills as a self-builder.

The technology inside an Ecodan air source heat pump is very similar to that of a domestic fridge - transferring heat from one place to another - the back of your fridge is warm because it is removing heat from the food inside the fridge out into your kitchen.

An Ecodan air source heat pump sits outside your home and extracts warmth from the outdoor air. It upgrades this renewable heat energy and transfers it inside the home to provide hot water and heating for radiators and / or under floor heating.

Like your fridge, it will do this quietly and reliably, all year round, even in sub-zero temperatures down to -25ºC.

Lets talk - get in touch

TV presenter, architect, lecturer and writer, George Clarke is a passionate advocate of sustainable self build construction. 

"The way we design, build, heat, power and recycle our homes needs to change, and change quickly, and renewable heating is an important part of our future.

I’m therefore delighted to associate myself with Ecodan, the market-leading brand of heat pumps built here in the UK and which can help reduce energy bills and lower emissions for almost any home."

Explaining Air Source Heat Pumps Fitting an air source heat pump

Typically installed in 2 days, our Ecodan air source heat pumps are available in a range of sizes to suit almost any home.

To understand which system is right for you, factors such as the age of your property, the levels of insulation and the way you use your heating will all affect the final choice.

That is why we recommend getting in an expert, and why we encourage our heating installers to attain Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) Accreditation. Our heating installers will be able to assess your home and advise you on the best system to suit both your lifestyle and your budget. This may be a hybrid system that works in conjunction with your current heating system; or a brand new system designed to provide all your hot water and heating needs.
