Introduction to Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP)
Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) are fast emerging as the low carbon heating source of choice for homes and they come as standard with every new home at This Land.
Benefits of ASHP for Customers
By utilising an ASHP, you can enjoy the following advantages
- Lower energy usage, reducing your home’s carbon footprint
- Decreased utility bills
- Well maintained ASHP have a longer lifespan compared to traditional heating methods
- Cost-effective solution when combined with insulation in This Land homes
Green Mortgages and Net Zero Targets
With the government’s commitment to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, the housing market has responded by offering reduced rates on green mortgages. These mortgages are available for those purchasing new builds with sufficient energy performance.
The Future of Home Heating
There has never been a better time than 2023 to consider a new property with an ASHP. ASHPs represent the future of home heating.
How ASHP Works
ASHPs absorb thermal energy from the surrounding air, which is then converted into water for heating and hot water purposes. The process involves compressing the ambient air, which is non-fossil fuel-based, and using a heat exchanger to produce water at a usable temperature.
User-Friendly Operation and Customer Training
Operating an ASHP may initially be challenging for those unfamiliar with the technology. However, once the system is set up, minimal homeowner input is required. This Land provides targeted customer training to ensure customers have a solid understanding of their ASHP.
This Land has conducted specific training sessions at their Spiregrass Square Development in Over, aimed at demystifying ASHPs and providing customers with essential knowledge. The training covers topics such as ASHP operation, best practices, and troubleshooting. It is delivered by Enietherm, a partner company and experts in the field.

Chris King, Director at Enietherm, offers valuable insights on optimising ASHP performance.
- Proper control of the system across different rooms
- Understanding when and how to operate the heating and hot water
- Avoiding simultaneous heating and hot water usage
- Programming the system for different flow temperatures
- Pre-heating the house before cold weather arrives
According to participants, 100% of them found the ASHP training extremely informative and greatly improved their understanding of their ASHP.
