What is an air source heat pump?

The simplest way to understand how Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) work is to that they do so in a similar way to how a fridge works, only in reverse. Powered by electricity, they extract naturally occurring heat from the air – even when temperatures are below 0° – and amplify it. The resulting heat is then used to heat your home.

There are two main types of ASHP’s – air-to-water and air-to-air – with the air-to-water types being more prevalent in the UK. Heat transfers to water and is then distributed via a central heating system. Air-to-air heat pumps use a warm air circulation system.

Economic Benefits

Air source heat pumps move heat instead of burning fuel and so can provide multiple times the amount of electrical energy it consumes in the form of heat energy thereby enabling significant savings to you the end user.
They extract ambient heat from the environment and can provide more heat than they use in electricity. ASHPs can achieve an efficiency of around 300% across the seasons whereas gas combi boilers typically have a 90% maximum efficiency.

Environmental Impact

With less fuel being used when heating or cooling your property there is a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants entering the atmosphere.
By installing solar panels on your roof to assist in powering your air source heat pump system your carbon footprint can be reduced even further.

Health And Wellness Benefits

Air source heat pumps are a great enabler of improved air filtration and dehumidification and so can help improve living conditions of people who are sensitive to allergens or pollutants in the air.
Also, when compared to alternative heating and cooling technologies, air source heat pumps are quiet to operate.
