Free Energy. From Thin Air.
What Is An ASHP?
Air source heat pumps are a remarkably clean and efficient source of producing heating and hot water for domestic properties and commercial sites.
Hero Renewables are experts in Heat Pump technology. Whether you invest in the expertly designed Mastertherm Boxair, or the cheaper but incredibly cost-effective Mitsubishi Ecodan Air Source Heat Pump, you can rest assured you have the backing of an excellent team of engineers who will guide and support you through your renewable journey.
We only install MCS accredited products to ensure our customers are able to claim the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments in full.
How Does It Work?
An Air Source Heat Pump looks aesthetically similar to an air conditioning unit, but in fact uses a highly efficient refrigeration cycle to extract energy from the surrounding air.
The surrounding air; transferring energy from the latent air outside, into water to power your central heating and hot water supply.
Heat is collected using a fan to direct the flow of air over a copper coil containing a refrigerant.
Energy is transferred into the gaseous refrigerant inside the heat exchanger, which then flows into an electrically driven compressor, this gas is then compressed up to 100˚C.
The heat from this vapour is finally passed through a heat exchanger, heating up the water in your hot water cylinder, which is then distributed either by underfloor heating or oversized radiators.
With this technology a correctly sized air source heat pump can work down to around -15˚C ambient air temperature, which is more than sufficient for mid-winter UK temperatures.
I'd definetly reccommend. — Mrs Shillito | London ( Google Reviews )We have just had Hero install an air source heat pump on our full time liveaboard houseboat in London. Both we and Hero put in a lot of ground work in preparation for this job; living on a houseboat you always want to maximise space. When the lads arrived, the install went extremely smoothly, they were great company for the few days with us, polite and efficient, I'd definetly reccommend.
Hero Renewables were excellent. — Mr Ismail | North London ( Google Reviews )Hero Renewables were excellent. They went over and above to help get my heating system working again and correct the fault. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and have taken up a care plan with the company for my ground source heating system.
Well done Hero! — Mr and Mrs Lewis | Cheshire ( Google Review )Great customer service, the engineers are very helpful and the products are fantastic. We recently had an air source heat pump and underfloor heating system installed and we are extremely happy with it and the whole experience with Hero Renewables. Well done Hero!
Professional and courteous — Mr Barratt | Stockport ( Google Review )Professional and courteous installation of both solar panels and air source heat pump.
What an excellent company to deal with. — Mr Trumpess | Derby ( Google Review )Hero have just completed the annual service on my aero thermal heat pump etc. The visit was set up quickly and simply, the fitter arrived spot on time and done the service quickly, professionally and cleanly. What an excellent company to deal with.
I would highly recommend this company — Mr Cunningham | Kent ( Google Review )Hero have installed an ASHP and hot water system for me in Sevenoaks, Kent. It is a new build and needed good communication and cooperation with the builders on site. Everything worked out well, even the plumber was impressed!! We are now in the process of discussing another system for a different development. I would highly recommend this company
The engineers who installed our ASHP were fantastic — Mr Shaw | Nottinghamshire ( Google Review )We looked into several suppliers for our ASHP, and Hero came out on top for both value and honesty. Others promised the world but then fell short when it came down to the fine detail. The engineers who installed our ASHP were fantastic- they had a tough gig with the delayed delivery, but they didn’t leave until all was complete. As with most companies, there were some slight hiccups where the sales team and projects team didn’t overlap as you’d wish, but this was ironed out shortly after. All in all, very happy with the service provided by Hero, would certainly recommend.
The installation was excellent — Mr Dudley | Campbeltown, Scotland ( YouGen Review )The installation was excellent but some of the support from the office was a bit haphazard. We would have been happier if there had been an individual who was a project manager who saw it through from beginning to end.
Professional and experts in their field — Mr Hadaway | Cheshire ( YouGen Review )Having an old Air Source Heat Pump fail on me I was looking around for a company to help me change and even upgrade my existing system. Hero Renewables sent someone to my house and see what I already had and talk through different options offering different price ranges and variants. He was very informative and knowledgeable on this subject which I wasn’t too familiar with and took the time to explain things to me and my wife. He also told us we would be eligible for the R.H.I ( renewable heating incentive). We decided to phone Hero the very next day with out order and with us having no heating they made us a priority and came within a week to come and install a new system for me. The workmen came in a team and worked very quickly and efficiently. They had different teams working on various aspects to speed up the install and it was all done easily within a day. I can not fault the work or the install. Everything went smoothly and professionally. I was shown how to operate the new system and the final workman wouldn’t leave till he was happy with everything and we knew how to work everything. I couldn’t recommend Hero Renewables highly enough. Professional and experts in their field (which is hard to come by). Have already got a neighbour interested in upgrading their existing system to a H.R. one. If you are looking for someone for any work that they cover you’d be a fool to look else where.
High degree of expertise. — Urban House Developments LTD | Kent ( YouGen Review )We used Hero to install both underfloor and air source heating throughout a new build house - generally good communications and completion of works as scheduled with high degree of expertise.
Very good value for money. — Mrs Williamson | Hertfordshire ( YouGen Review )I went with Hero as they stood out on price meaning it has been very good value for money. Adequately and sufficient paperwork was left to remind myself of advice given during installation. Can sometimes be difficult to contact individuals for particular queries.
I would use Hero again for any work I have done in future. — Mr Mackenzie | Warwick ( YouGen Review )I chose Hero because they provided the best response when I contacted a few installers. I was also really impressed as they provided a good follow up service where we discussed various options when selecting the right system for me. The ASHP and solar systems are both working well and delivering benefits. I would use Hero again for any work I have done in future.
Heat pump is definitely living up to expectations. — Mr Thompson | West Midlands ( YouGen Review )I chose them because they stood out on price and I'd heard their customer service was great. I found that they were excellent value for money and my heat pump is definitely living up to expectations.
responded well and quickly to my enquiries — Anonymous Reviewer | Warwickshire ( YouGen Review )I chose Hero as they responded well and quickly to my enquiries with both written and verbal explanations. So far system is living up to what I expected and is proving good value.
Customer service was excellent — Anonymous Reviewer | Derbyshire ( YouGen Review )Hero were the best of the three quotes I received. Customer service was excellent and my options were written in depth as well as a technical proposal and practical demonstration, once installed. Not the cheapest but technically the most advanced thereby making it the most economic to run. So far it is doing exactly as I wanted and they proposed.
They always called me back and helped me to get the right certificates to apply for the incentive. — Mr and Mrs Patel | Middlesex ( Google Review )We installed a ASHP with Hero’s. I can tell you that the service and after service was good. They always called me back and helped me to get the right certificates to apply for the incentive.
A good system which runs perfectly and I would recommend the company. — Mr France | Woore ( Google Review )Hi, quality installation. Independently verified by Mitsubishi service engineer that Ecodan Air Source system was well fitted which apparently is not always the case. Had the control panel explained which I could not take in as too much in a short space of time. Need a really good set of instructions on basics which I could not find anywhere on line. All in all a good service, a good system which runs perfectly and I would recommend the company.
Hero Renewables were very professional — Mr Bam | Reading ( Google Review )Hero Renewables were very professional in the approach used for assessment of the heat pump requirements, costing, installation, commissioning and start up. The warranty and registration was also handled on my behalf by Hero Renewables.
System installed in early January and is working well. — Mr Jones | Gwynedd, North Wales ( Google Review )System installed in early January and is working well. Slight issue with the room thermostat/monitor but a replacement should arrive soon. The few problems have been settled easily with the help of the knowlegable technical staff.
We like this company and will use them again. — Mr Roberts | Kent ( Google Review )We used Hero for both our underfloor and air source heating on a new house build - we found their communications to be generally prompt and responsive - they turned up on site when they were scheduled to and the work, apart from one slight hitch (which they corrected without delay) was all completed on time and in particular the AS plumbing & electrical works which were undertaken within a very confined space were excellent. We like this company and will use them again.
We are certainly happy to recommend Hero Renewables. — Mrs Forbes | North of Scotland ( Google Review )We live in a remote corner of Scotland but Hero Renewables sent out a very competent and tidy team to install our air source heat pump. The result is excellent. The Mitsubishi heat pump is virtually silent. We are certainly happy to recommend Hero Renewables.

very pleased with the system — Mrs Davidson | Ashbourne, Derbyshire ( Google Review )I have had a Hero Renewables Air Source Heat Pump system for my under floor heating for 3 years now and have been very pleased with the system. I have also signed up for the annual service agreement. This system has proved to be much more economical, efficient and easy to use than my previous system and there is the added bonus of the Renewable Heat Incentive which gives a quarterly return for 7 years from installation.
Whole team were professional — Mr Sterry | Tewkesbury ( YouGen Reviews )"Excellent Whole team were professional, polite and worked together to install the heat pump without disturbing the visible interior of the house or detracting from its surroundings. As with a previous project they listened to what we proposed, commented on its practicality and then delivered and installed the agreed system."

The team at Hero Renewables were great to work with, from initially exploring options to commissioning of our heating system. They were professional, helpful and interested in our project, and stayed in good contact even during COVID and lockdown. They have also advised on the most efficient way to set up the system to save on electricity - really impressed by the company and their customer service.

The heat pump has kept the house warm through the really cold nights, so no problems there."
Polite and professional and no mess was left. — Mr Quinton | Salisbury ( Google Review )"Had a air source heat pump fitted which took 2 days.

With the right amount of insulation, whilst paired with underfloor heating or oversized radiators, an Air Source Heat Pump will provide you with affordable, sustainable comfort, all year round.
The running costs of heat pumps depends on a few factors, from the efficiency, to the amount of heat needed, and the temperature of the heat source.
Not only will an Air Source Heat Pump save you money on your monthly utility bills and help the environment, you will be able to claim on the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) with payments that last 7 years in a domestic dwelling, or 20 years for a commercial, public or industrial premise.
The Renewable Heat Incentive has now been extended until March 2020, so it’s never been a better time to install a renewable energy system in your home or business.
Low Environmental Impact
Air source heat pumps have are a form of low carbon heating, as the only emissions created by an Air Source Heat Pump are the electric ones required to power the compressor. If you are switching from a coal or natural gas based heating system, you can significantly reduce your carbon emissions.
An Air Source Heat Pump is a product known to be a “Fit and Forget” technology, once they are installed, they require little to no maintenance. Designed to have a lifespan of 20 years, requiring no fuel supplies, you can be reassured in the knowledge your home will always be warm and comfortable.
