Air Source Heat pumps are a form of renewable energy technology which take the warmth from the air outside (even when it’s quite cold) and use it to heat the home. There are two types of air source heat pump.
Using various pieces of technology – namely an evaporator coil full of refrigerant fluid, a type of pump called a compressor and a heat exchanger – heat pumps absorb the warmth in the air outside and release this heat into air or water, which is then distributed around the home. They can do this even when the temperature outside is very low. Fridges work in the same way, only in reverse. They use the same technology to draw heat out of the air in the fridge, which is why the space behind fridges feels warm.
A well insulated home with high standards of air-tightness is preferable to get the most of your air source heat pump. This is because heat pumps are most effective in homes which warm up quickly and are good at keeping heat in. Please be aware that air source heat pumps therefore aren’t for every home. A tech survey by a qualified assessor is essential before install as it could have a detrimental effect on your electric bills if your house isn’t correctly insulated.
