Gillingham-based air source heat pump distributor Bublshop has become the first UK distributor to sell products from Hisense HVAC, the heating and air conditioning arm of international electronics giant, the Hisense Group from China.

Bublshop has been distributing air source heat pumps (ASHPs) and other sustainable heating products across the UK since 2013. The company employs 18 local people and works with a network of trusted and qualified heat pump engineers across the country.

Richard Barras, managing director at Bublshop, says: ‘We’re really excited to be working with Hisense. It’s another string to our bow and the additional business means we’re on the lookout for more warehouse and office space. But we’re a close-knit local team who’ve worked together for many years, so we won’t be straying far from Gillingham!

‘A new range of ASHPs for the UK market is great news for homeowners wanting a more environmentally-friendly home heating option, bringing greater choice at different price points. As with our other heat pumps, Hisense’s range can be integrated with solar panels and battery storage systems for anyone seeking a fully sustainable, off-grid energy supply.

‘They can also be integrated with an existing oil or gas boiler for homeowners cautious about their first step into renewables.

‘The UK government has set ambitious targets for heat pump installations over the coming years in a bid to reduce carbon emissions from domestic heating. Despite the myths about heat pumps, they’re suitable for most homes regardless of type, size, location and age – and a good MCS-qualified heating engineer will give an honest and detailed assessment of a property’s suitability. We’ve been working with this technology for a long time and we only stock high-quality products we’d confidently install in our own homes!’

Kevin Lucas, operations manager at Hisense HVAC UK, adds: ‘We are pleased to have Bublshop as our first UK distributor and we look forward to working with the team. Bublshop are an ideal match as they have an established record in the supply of heat pumps and can provide both pre- and post-sales support for installers and homeowners.’

The Bublshop team works closely with property owners and heating engineers to share expert knowledge so each Bublshop-supplied ASHP operates effectively. Property owners looking for a qualified heat pump installer or advice can contact Bublshop on 01747 826900.
