Freedom sets up heat-pump distributor
Recently formed heat-pump distributor Freedom Heat Pumps has opened a showroom that installers, end users and home owners can visit to see an actual Samsung installation in operation. The system in the company’s premises in Chandlers Ford near Southampton demonstrates an air-to-water heat pump with radiators, underfloor heating, air conditioners to provide heating and cooling, and domestic hot water.
Managing director Graham Hendra explains that the company’s target market area is the south of England up to the South Midlands for properties without mains gas. He says, ‘For new oil-fired installations and existing systems where the oil tank needs replacing, the installed price of a heat-pump system is about the same as oil, with the immediate benefit of lower running costs.’
Graham Hendra is keen to ensure that heat-pump installations live up to their potential and aims to ensure this by working closely with installers on site surveys, system design and installation, and commissioning and handover.
An initial promotion from Freedom Heat Pumps involves £200 being ‘banked’ for every purchase to give £600 off every third purchase.
Other heat-pump brands being distributed by Freedom are LG and Hitachi.
