Like a hybrid car, a hybrid energy system combines two or more technologies to provide heating with lower carbon emissions. It's a great option for those who want to reduce their carbon output but may not be quite ready to switch to a heat pump alone.
A hybrid heat pump system can reduce your monthly energy costs by as much as 50% each year, meaning they're well worth installing, even in less thermally efficient homes.
Depending on your home's heating needs, a hybrid heat pump installation can cost between £6,000 and £10,000. However, you may be eligible for grant funding to offset part or all of the cost of your new system. Please speak to our expert heating engineers today to find out more.
The air source heat pump itself is not a hybrid; it combines with a gas or oil boiler to provide the energy needed to heat your home. The boiler tops up a low-temperature heat pump, raising radiator temperatures from 40-55 degrees to the 65-70 degrees that many people are used to in their homes.

In a system that only uses a heat pump, the heat pump is the sole source of energy. It provides heating and hot water by itself. In a hybrid system, the heat pump is combined with a gas or oil boiler, which tops up the heat pump's output.
Yes. The hybrid system typically includes a gas or oil boiler as well as a heat pump. Despite rumours of gas boilers being banned from 2025, those with gas boilers will still be able to use them until the end of their lifespan.
Most hybrid heating systems will take one to four days to install, depending on the job's complexity. When our engineers have completed a site survey, they will be able to provide an estimate of how long installation will take.
Yes. Although hybrid systems can be more costly to install than a regular boiler, estimates suggest that they can save between 30-50% in energy costs each year.
Several benefits of choosing hybrid heat pump technology are outlined above, but the key advantage is that it offers a lower carbon way to heat your home without compromising on heating output. Your heating needs will be met while you're also saving money.
