Air Source Heat Pumps

What is an Air source heat pump?

An air source heat pump is used to absorb the heat that is in the air. Once the heat has been absorbed it can then be pumped into your radiators or other heating systems that you may use.

How do they work?

Heat is absorbed from the air which forms as a fluid. The fluid is then passed to a compressor to increase the temperature. Once the temperature has been increased the heat is transferred to the heating and hot water in your house.

As the air source heat pumps heat is extracted from the air it is constantly being naturally renewed. Heats pumps do use a small amount of electricity to run but will keep on extracting heat even when it is as cold as -15°C.

The Benefits?

Air source heat pumps could reduce your fuel bills while at the same time reducing the carbon emissions from your home. Very little maintenance is needed once it has been installed, and the install is easer then some other heat pump types. Heat your home and hot water without having to worry about how much fuel is left.

  • What would it replace?

    The system could pay for itself based on what type of fuel you are replacing such as coal.

  • How to get the most out of it?

    The best effect you will get out of it is if your home is well insulated and draught-proofed.
