Heating our homes currently accounts for a huge 13-14% of the UK's total carbon emissions. An Air Source Heat Pump is a low-carbon way of heating a home. They absorb heat from the outside air and use it to increase the temperature in the home. Air source heat pumps are positioned outdoors, at the side or back of the property, and need plenty of space around them for air to circulate.

Steve Willis Training Centres in Burgess Hill, West Sussex are now offering two courses for Air Source Heat Pumps: September & October 2023 dates are currently available. 

The Installation, Commissioning, and Servicing of Air Source Heat Pumps (non-refrigerant system) OFT21-504A.
