Hisense HVAC and Bublshop join forces in the UK HP market


03 July 2023

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.

Based in Dorset, Bublshop has been distributing air source heat pumps (ASHPs) and other sustainable heating solutions across the UK since 2013, recently adding Hisense to the list of manufacturers it represents.

Hisense HVAC operates across Europe (primarily in Italy, Germany, Spain and more recently in France), where heat pump uptake is much higher than in the UK. Heat pumps in the Hisense range are efficient, reliable and technologically advanced, delivering heating and hot water quietly and sustainably down to temperatures of -25°C.

Installers who are new to the sustainable heating industry or have experience working with other ASHPs can attend a Hisense course at Bublshop’s training centre in Dorset. Larger organisations may have the opportunity to access free-of-charge training at one of Hisense’s European facilities. Both Hisense and Bublshop share a commitment to supporting heating engineers through early installations, offering help with specifying, commissioning, servicing and maintenance.

Richard Barras, managing director at Bublshop, says: “We’re really excited to be working with Hisense. The addition of an entirely new range of ASHPs to the UK market brings more choice at a wider range of price points for our network of approved, MCS-certified heat pump installers working across the country – and that can only be good news for the industry.

“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. Hisense’s ASHPs are efficient and reliable and can fully replace an existing oil or gas boiler. They can also work in tandem with solar panels and battery storage systems for a truly sustainable solution, plus they can be controlled remotely. We only stock high-quality products our team would confidently install in their own homes and these tick all the boxes!"

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

Bublshop stocks the full range of Hisense Hi-Therma monobloc ASHPs and can usually make next day, on site deliveries. All Hisense ASHPs are MCS-certified by KEYMARK and meet Ecodesign efficiency requirements.

The Bublshop team also helps homeowners seeking information about sustainable energy solutions and matches them with MCS-qualified heating engineers across the UK.
