Air Source Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat Pumps

Air Source heat pumps produce over 4 times more heat than the energy required, thus 1kW of energy produces 4kW of heat. Depending upon your fuel provider, the air source heat pump could be over twice as economic as a traditional gas fired installation. The air source heat pumps convert the free and sustainable latent energy from the air into heat, delivering green, low-cost, energy-saving heating and hot water all year round. With the ever increasing fuel costs and the increasing demand to reduce our carbon footprint, an air source heat pump is the most efficient way of heating your home.

Air Source Heat Pumps – Heating and Cooling and Domestic Hot Water

The air source heat pump utilises the outside air as cooling medium. The heat in the outside air is used for heat exchange, allowing evaporation of refrigerant during a refrigeration cycle. The higher the outside air temperature the more efficient the air source heat pump becomes. So the air source heat pumps extract heat from the air outside of your house to create heat for hot water. The air source heat pump can heat hot water services, under floor heating circuits or traditional central heating radiators.

Air to Air Heat Pumps – Heating and Cooling

These systems are commonly known as comfort cooling, they utilise heat from the air outside of your home in a similar way as the air source heat pump. This process is a must for creating a refrigeration cycle and providing heat or cool air inside your home.

Both these systems work well even when temperatures outside drop to as low as -10°C.

Maximum efficiency is achieved when homes are well insulated and there is sufficient external space for housing the outdoor heat pump.

Where internal space is limited, air to air heat pumps are an attractive alternative for providing energy efficient heating as the modern green refrigerants are used in this most efficient method available today. An air to air heat pump is an all-in-one heating and cooling system that is designed to provide all year round comfort. As an extra benefit, air to air heat pumps can also operate as an air purifier with high levels of filtration available in ground breaking technology.
