An air-source heat pump installed means embracing a greener future by committing to cleaner heating and reducing carbon footprint. Heat pumps are remarkably efficient and offer low-maintenance, lasting ways to heat your home. However, to get the best possible performance from your appliance, you’ll need to ensure it’s properly maintained, including regular servicing.
Most manufacturers recommend an annual service for air-source heat pumps. A yearly service ensures that the unit is protected from damage and wear and tear and continues to run smoothly and efficiently. According to Energy.gov, a well-maintained heat pump can deliver 10-25% more efficiency than a severely neglected one. This is especially important when you consider the positive environmental impact of energy efficiency.
At Aura Heating, we understand that paying an upfront cost for servicing isn’t always ideal. That’s why we offer air-source heat pump service plans, which enable you to maintain your heat pump with affordable payments starting at just £12.25 per month.
When our heating technicians service your heat pump, they’ll perform various tests and checks to ensure it’s performing as it should. For example, they may need to do the following:
We recommend that your air-source heating system is serviced annually. Usually over the summer, so that it is ready for the time of year is when it will be used most heavily, so it makes sense to ensure it’s running as expected. Our basic care plan is an excellent option if you’re on a budget.
The cost of air-source heat pump servicing is typically between £150-£200, some suppliers charge upwards of £270. However, here at Aura Heating, we understand that spreading maintenance costs is easier and more affordable for some homeowners. That’s why we provide air-source heat pump service plans from only £12.25 per month.
Our air-source heat pump service plans are designed to be convenient. Our most basic package starts at £12.25 per month and covers the cost of your annual check and inspection. You’ll also have access to our 24/7 helpline if you have any questions or concerns.
We also offer packages that cover your system and heating care and a fully comprehensive option that covers additional services such as water pipe repairs, internal drainage issues, and electrical work. All our service plans mean you won’t pay a call-out charge, and you can be sure one of our employees will visit you rather than a subcontractor.

Air-source heat pumps are very reliable. However, debris can build up, so regularly use a soft brush to clean the unit. It would be best if you also had the pump serviced yearly to ensure it continues working efficiently. Our heating engineers can replace air filters, too, if required by the manufacturers, ensuring that dirt and pollen doesn’t collect in the system.
In addition, we'll carry out a sound assessment, which is necessary for compliance with planning requirements. This will ensure that any noise the unit produces doesn't exceed a certain level.
Regular servicing is an essential part of heat pump maintenance. It ensures your system continues to run efficiently and enables our technicians to identify any potential issues before they become a major problem. It also ensures the pump continues to operate safely and efficiently.
Your service plan will cover any air-source heat pump fitted by our team at Aura Heating, but we can also cover any air-source heat pump made by Samsung, Mitsubishi, Daiken, Grant, Bosch or Vaillant. Speak to our team today to find out if we can cover your appliance.
With proper maintenance, a heat pump can usually last for 15-20 years.
While it’s simple and safe to clean the back of your heat pump to prevent debris from building up, getting a professional to carry out servicing is vital. An MCS-certified engineer can ensure minor problems don’t escalate and that the heat pump runs efficiently and safely.
There are several signs your heat pump needs replacing. These include:
If your system needs frequent repairs, this could also indicate you need a new heat pump. Feel free to contact our team if you’re unsure and would like an expert opinion.
You can expect to pay between £8,000 and £14,000 for air-source heat pump installation. However, there are grants available that can cover up to 100% of the cost, depending on your property and financial situation. Alternatively, the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) grant of £5000 is available to everyone and we can administer an application on your behalf for this. If you are not eligible for full grant funding, we offer a payment plan that enables you to spread the cost with affordable monthly payments.
