Air Source Heat Pumps

An Air Source Heat Pump derives its heat energy from the air which is fan assisted to enable it to circulate rapidly through an external unit. Once the heat is transferred to the heat pump via a heat exchanger, it is subsequently upgraded to a higher temperature (typically 35-50° C, or higher) and used to heat water and to provide central heating.

Air Source Heat Pump systems are designed to meet the requirements of your property and provide space heating via radiators or underfloor heating, as well as catering for your hot water needs. New high temperature Air Source Heat Pump systems are now arriving on the market, which are capable of heating traditional steel radiators up to 80°C

Compared with traditional fossil fuels, Air Source Heat Pumps can lead to a significant reduction in utility bills, and are an ideal solution for an Urban or Suburban setting, where space constraints may rule out the installation of other renewable energy systems such as Ground Source Heat Pumps or Wood Pellet Boilers.

Benefits of An Air Source Heat Pump

  • Lower installation cost than Ground Source heat pumps
  • Simple installation, no excavation required as with Ground Source
  • Lower fuel bills and a lower carbon footprint
  • Provision of hot water and room heating
  • Little to no maintenance required

Feasibility of an Air Source Heat Pump for your home

Is an Air Source Heat Pump is right for you? Please consider the following points.

  • Do you have somwhere to put it?
  • You'll need a place outside your house where a unit can be fitted to a wall or placed on the ground. It will need plenty of space around it to get a good flow of air. A sunny wall is ideal.

  • Is your home well insulated?
  • Since air source heat pumps work best when producing heat at a lower temperature than traditional boilers, it's essential that your home is insulated and draught proofed well for the heating system to be effective.

  • What fuel will you be replacing
  • The system will pay for itself much more quickly if it's replacing an electricity or coal heating system. Heat pumps are not recommended for homes on the gas network.

  • What type of heating system will you use?
  • Air source heat pumps can perform better with underfloor heating systems or warm air heating than radiator-based systems because of the lower water temperatures required.

  • Is the system intended for a new development?
  • Combining the installation with other building work can reduce the cost of installing the system.
