How an Air Source Heat Pump Works

An Air Source Heat Pump is a revolutionary type of heating system for domestic properties, offices, factories, or outbuildings that extracts heat from the outside air and uses it to heat your home. Heat pumps use a refrigerant to transfer heat from the outside to the inside of your home, where it is released as warm air.

How it works:

• The Air Source Heat Pump works by drawing in air from the outside.
• The air is then passed over a coil that contains a refrigerant.
• The refrigerant absorbs the heat from the air.
• The refrigerant is then compressed, increasing its temperature.
• The hot refrigerant is then passed through another coil inside the home, where it releases heat.
• The refrigerant is then cooled down and the cycle begins again.

Benefits of an Air Source Heat Pump:

The UK is becoming increasingly aware of the need to switch to more sustainable energy sources and
reduce its carbon footprint. Air Source Heat Pumps are thus becoming an increasingly popular choice
for homeowners in the UK.

Heat pumps have a wide range of benefits, from reducing your carbon footprint to saving money on your energy bills. Discover how a heat pump could benefit you:

Eco Friendly

Air Source Heat Pumps are an eco-friendly option for heating your property. They take the heat from the air outside and transfer it into your home, making them a renewable energy source. This means that they are much more efficient than traditional gas boilers, as they require much less energy to heat your home. As a result, they produce fewer emissions and have a lower overall environmental impact.

Low Maintenance

They require very little maintenance compared to traditional boilers. This is because they are much simpler in design and require fewer parts. This makes them much easier to maintain and repair. They also have a longer lifespan than traditional boilers – they are designed to last for up to 25 years.

Financial Savings

Air Source Heat Pumps are a cost-effective option for heating your home. They require much less energy to heat your home, saving you money on your energy bills. They also require fewer maintenance and repair costs, meaning you can save money in the long run. The more insulated your home is, the more you save.

Virtually Silent Operation

The new generation Air Source Heat Pumps are incredibly quiet compared to traditional boilers. This means that they won’t disrupt your home life and you won’t have to worry about disturbing your neighbours.
