Heat Pumps – Air Source & Ground Source Heat Pump Installations

GreenGenUK is one of the UK’s leading providers and installers of air source and ground source heating.

Heat pumps are the ideal renewable alternative to traditional fossil fuel heating systems, such as gas and oil.

In addition to being much friendlier to the environment, air source and ground source heat pumps also provide a fuel-saving versus non-renewable alternatives. When installed by GreenGenUK, heat pumps are eligible for a vast subsidy through the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme.

Air Source Heat Pumps

Air source heating is the most popular renewable heating solution.
