With an impending ban on gas boilers from 2025, IMS Heat Pump Installers recognise the power of heat pumps and the role they play in shifting the UK to net-Zero by 2050. Carbon emissions from Heat in Buildings is a key challenge, but air source and ground source heat pumps are a proven technology providing efficient, effective low carbon heating for domestic and commercial properties.
Whether you are involved in self or custom builds, installing a ground, air or water sourced heat pump will not only provide for 100% of the heating and hot water needs it will future proof your new home from fossil fuel price rises or future carbon-based penalties.
A correctly designed and expertly installed heat pump will minimise utility bills, reduce carbon footprint, and qualify you for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Government scheme. There really is no better time to install these systems into your new build or renovated property.
IMS Heat Pump Installers has been future proofing homes against fossil fuel price rises for over 20 years. Putting an end to the gas boiler and potential carbon taxes, 100% of heat and hot water is delivered by the heat pump without the need, in most cases, for a back-up boiler.
Using only electricity to power the pumps, this technology used to heat your home will help lower your footprint, contributing to the UK’s target of net-zero by 2050. The heat pumps deliver remarkable results reaching 300% to 500% efficiencies by transferring 1kW of electricity to 3kW – 5kW of heat into your home.
“This year IMS Heat Pumps will be delivering its heat pump systems into three ‘Grand Designs’ properties and many other beautiful custom build and self-build homes along with a number of small but prestigious developments.” Stated Emma.
With many years of experience, all work is done in-house, without the use of sub-contractors. “Our expert, in-house team are some of the most knowledgeable in the UK. With over 150 years of experience, installing systems for over 20 years, we have been in the business for a long time; providing a knowledgeable, trusted, experienced, friendly service for our clients.
