You’re likely already aware that air source heat pumps are an investment, so it's worth extending their lifespan as much as possible. That's where air source heat pump servicing can help.
Regular services will help to highlight any potential issues with your pump before it breaks down. This can prevent costly repairs or the need to buy a replacement pump.
As well as extending the lifespan of your heat pump, servicing can also ensure it’s running efficiently.
Here’s some of the checks that will be made during an air source heat pump service:
Checking and cleaning the filter
Checking pressure levels
Checking the valves
Checking refrigerant levels
Checking the fuse
Checking the temperature settings
Checking if any air needs to be released from your heating system
While servicing isn’t a requirement, it’s recommended to keep your pump functioning properly and safely. Getting a service every three years is ideal.
Typically it will be around £150. The average air source heat pump service cost will vary depending on the type, brand and size of pump you have.
If your air pump is more than 20 years old and it’s no longer functioning properly you may need to buy a replacement pump.
To work out the cost of a replacement air source heat pump, consider the following factors:
Your energy needs
How well your home is insulated
The size of your home
The brand of pump you prefer
How efficient your pump is
Air source heat pump installation cost
One of the most important factors in the price of your air source heat pump is whether you choose an air-to-air model or an air-to-water model. The average price of an air-to-water pump is £13,000, while the average price of an air-to-air pump is much more affordable at £2,500.
You can learn more about average prices and the factors that affect them in our air source heat pump cost guide.
One of the benefits of heat pumps is that they need little maintenance. However, you can keep your pump working efficiently between services by doing a little air source heat pump maintenance.
You usually only need to do this on a yearly basis so it shouldn't take up too much of your free time. Make sure to:
Check the air inlet and evaporator for loose debris.
Add anti-freeze during the colder months to prevent the refrigerant from freezing.
Trim back any plants that grow near to your pump.
Make sure there’s sufficient air flow to your pump.
Check the pressure on your central heating system.
These heat pumps are designed to last years, which is good news for your bank balance.
You can expect your air source heat pump to have a lifespan of around 20 years. Regular servicing may increase this.
