Air Source Heat Pumps
An air source heat pump (ASHP) is a system which transfers heat from outside to inside a building, or vice versa. Under the principles of vapor compression refrigeration, an ASHP uses a refrigerant system involving a compressor and a condenser to absorb heat at one place and release it at another. They can be used as a space heater or cooler, and are sometimes called “reverse-cycle air conditioners“. In domestic heating use, an ASHP absorbs heat from outside air and releases it inside the building, as hot air, hot water-filled radiators, underfloor heating and/or domestic hot water supply. The same system can often do the reverse in summer, cooling the inside of the house. When correctly specified, an ASHP can offer a full central heating solution and domestic hot water up to 80 °C.
Benefits of Heat Pump
Did you know that using an air to water heat pump, can save 40-60% on heating bills? Air to water heat pumps are among the most efficient air source heat pump on the market. If you want to reduce your carbon footprint and increase your home’s energy efficiency, an air to water heat pump is an absolute must. It is a cheap, simple, and eco-friendly choice for your home.
Air to water heat pumps take heat from the outside air and transfer it to a water-based system. This heat that is created can be used for space heating or as a hot water supply for the house.
