What is the running cost of a heat pump?

Running costs depend on the size of the property and system. The typical UK home requires about 12,000 kW of heat annually. An air source heat pump may create 3 kW of heat for each 1 kW of electricity it consumes. As a result, it will use 4,000 kW to fulfil the demand. As a rough example, with electricity priced at £0.13 per unit, annual running costs will be £520.

This is by no means a hard and fast rule. If you get electricity from your own renewable source, such as a solar PV installation, the running costs will be eliminated. Speak to one of our experts for more clarity about your savings from an air source heat pump.
