Air Source Heat Pumps
Air source heat pumps extract heat from the outside air and using it to provide heating
and hot water for your home or business. Even in the coldest of winters, modern systems will
convert one unit of energy into three to three and a half units of heat.
HOW DOES AN AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMP WORK?
This type of technology is very popular in Scandinavia where temperatures drop well below those typically experienced in the UK, and even at temperatures below freezing heat can be extracted from the air around us.
An air source heat pump is made up of two parts:
The heat pump which sits outside in a free flow of air and contains a fan unit and the heat exchanger.
The hot water cylinder and controller which are inside Modern units are extremely quiet and even when the fan is running the units make less noise than a typical oil boiler.
Gas or oil boilers deliver short bursts of intense heat whereas a heat pump delivers a lower temperature heat over a longer period. It is easy to maintain a comfortable and cost effective ambient temperature throughout the day and night. Radiators won’t feel as hot to the touch as they do with a gas or oil boiler – both they and the room will feel warm which is safer and more comfortable for babies and infants.
A correctly sized heat pump which is fitted by trained and knowledgeable installers will fully meet all the heating and hot water needs of your home or business. BENEFITS OF AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS
- Energy Efficient
- Cuts your home’s carbon emissions by reducing reliance on fossil fuels
- Can further reduce your carbon footprint through use of electricity from renewable sources
- Provides all heating and hot water without the need for a back up system
- Lowers fuel bills – savings depend on system replaced
- Low maintenance – virtually ‘fit and forget’, requires only annual maintenance visit
- Eliminates need to plan fuel deliveries
Ground Source Heat Pumps
A ground source heat pump is a device that absorbs heat from one location and transfers it
to another. Ground Source heat pumps absorb heat out of the ground and then upgrade it to a
temperature that’s suitable to provide comfortable heating and hot water to almost any
Ground source heat pumps are an environmentally friendly alternative to gas and oil boilers and are growing in popularity with homeowners, social housing developers and businesses alike. As the UK moves to a carbon-neutral future, heat pumps will be a key contributor in creating clean heat energy.
