Aboyne: Air Source Heat Pumps & EWI

1 1 1 1
Client: Aberdeenshire Council
Location: Aboyne Aberdeenshire
Energy Efficiency Measures: Installation of Air Source Heat Pumps & External Wall Insulation
Property Types:

There was made up of no finds property types in the contract with a variety of solutions being offered. All properties had external wall insulation installed as well as ASHP.

Good standards of insulation are critical in hard to heat properties such as these, to minimise heat losses.

Summary of project

Everwarm worked in partnership with Aberdeenshire Council to design and install air source heat pumps to a number of Council owned properties in Aboyne. 

As well as the design of the heating installations, we surveyed and installed energy saving measures in each property, including External wall and loft insulation to maximise fuel saving.

Funding Mechanism

Everwarm can co-ordinate funding models for your project. There are currently three main funding streams, each of which is explained below: 

  • RHI – (Renewable Heat Initiative) the domestic RHI will be introduced by DECC in Spring 2014. It will be available to homeowners, private and social landlords. It will also be available to those who have installed renewable heat technologies since 15 July 2009 and meet the scheme’s eligibility criteria.
  • HHCRO – Owners and private landlords can secure funding that contributes to the cost of an air source heat pump and all ancillary work (radiator’s pipework etc.) subject to owner and tenant being on certain qualifying benefits.


Everwarm is an approved MCS installer able to install a range of air and ground source heat pumps. Once installed correctly ASHPs are virtually maintenance free, all that is required is an annual check by a qualified tradesman to make sure the units are working properly and the vents are clear.
