Air Source Heat Pumps
A heat pump heating system consists of 3 components: the heat source, the heat pump itself and a heat distribution and storage system. Heat pumps are able to produce more energy than they consume by using the conventional refrigeration cycle to absorb heat from the environment and raise it to a suitable level for heating.
Even cold air is full of energy an air source heat pumps uses the freely available heat in the ambient air to provide efficient heating and hot water at air temperatures as low as -25ºC. Because the source of heat – the air – is abundantly available all around us, air source heat pumps have the advantage of low installation costs and minimal space requirements, while relatively mild winter temperatures in the UK mean excellent levels of efficiency and performance are achieved throughout the year.
- 1. Can be utilized all year round between -25ºC and +35ºC.
2. Always available and inexhaustible source of heat.
3. No requirement for the cost and land area of ground collectors.
4. Ideal for new build or retro fit applications, especially where
space is limited.
5. Can be used for heating, cooling, domestic hot water and
