Air Source Heat Pumps

Heat your home from the outside in.
Air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air which can then be used to supply heat to underfloor heating systems, your internal radiators and supply hot water in your home.

    Heat your home from the outside in.

    An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can extract heat from the air even when the outside temperature is as low as minus -15° C.

    Heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the ground, air, or water is constantly being renewed naturally.

    Unlike gas or oil boilers, heat pumps deliver heat at lower temperatures over much longer periods.

    This means that during the winter they are left on 24/7 to heat your home efficiently. For every KWH of energy used from the Grid they generate another 2 or 3KWH of heat depending on the system from the air outside. It’s like getting something for free.

    It also means that radiators should never feel as hot to the touch as they would do when using a gas or oil boiler.

    Air Source Heat Pump Options

    Air-to-water heat pumps

    An air-to-water system distributes heat via your wet central heating system. Heat pumps work much more efficiently at a lower temperature than a standard boiler system would. So, they are more suitable for under floor heating systems or larger radiators, which give out heat at lower temperatures over longer periods of time. Heat from the air is absorbed into a fluid that is pumped through a heat exchanger in the heat pump. Low-grade heat from the outside air is then extracted by the refrigeration system and, after passing through the heat pump compressor, is concentrated into a higher temperature useful heat capable of heating water for the heating and hot water circuits of the house.

    Air-to-air heat pumps

    An air-to-air system produces warm air that is circulated by fans to heat your home. They are unlikely to provide you with hot water as well.
