In our experience self builders completing their new build or renovation projects have been early adopters of heat pumps, as well as other renewable energy solutions for the following reasons:

  • Many areas in the UK  do not have access to mains gas including parts of; Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Scotland, so self builders are keen to consider heat pumps and associated lower fuel bills over traditional oil, LPG or direct electric heating solutions.
  • Many self build projects are much larger than the UK average dwelling, therefore choosing a heat pump with lower running costs is a good option to meet larger heating demands.
  • When building their dream home, many clients have installed a superior underfloor heating solution. Source Energy can provide this as a single package as heat pumps and underfloor heating complement each other.
  • With self builders expecting to stay in their homes for the long term, they are the biggest beneficiary of the long term savings from lower fuel bills associated with installing ground source and air source heat pumps.
  • Grant funding is available for homeowners installing ground source and air source heat pumps.
