About Air Source Heating
Air source heat pumps are air-to-water or air-to-air systems that convert air to heat. This process, called ‘heat pumping’ can be used for both heating and cooling.
Heat pumps are an efficient, cost-effective and renewable way of heating or cooling your home.
HOW DO THEY WORK?
They use electricity to transfer heat from one place to another. The outside air contains some heat which the system collects and then moves inside. This outside air is drawn in through a fan and then passed through a heat exchanger.
The heat exchanger takes the heat from the air and transfers it to a refrigerant. The refrigerant then passes through a compressor which increases its temperature and pressure. This heated water or air is then circulated around the building providing heat.
They can be up to twice as efficient as traditional heating systems. They also have low running costs, using less electricity than other heating systems to generate the same amount of heat. They are a renewable energy source which makes them popular with those looking to reduce their carbon footprint.
BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, BETTER FOR YOU.
They’re very efficient, typically using about half the energy of traditional heating systems. They can also be used with renewable energy sources like solar or wind power, allowing you to take advantage of free energy sources.
Heat pumps offer improved indoor air quality by reducing humidity levels and helping to remove dust and other allergens from the air. This means a healthier home or office environment as well as improved comfort. Heat pumps are also easier to install than traditional systems, and require less maintenance.
All in all, air-source heat pumps are an energy-efficient, cost-effective way to keep your home or business comfortable. They help reduce your energy bills, improve air quality, and reduce your environmental impact.
Air Source FAQs
Air source heat pumps are a great option for heating homes and businesses, as they provide an efficient and environmentally friendly way to heat and cool spaces. They are highly efficient and can reduce energy costs for buildings significantly.
Since air source heat pumps do not burn fuel, they have zero emissions and contribute to a healthier environment. As a result, air source heat pumps are an excellent choice for those looking to reduce their energy costs and carbon footprint.
They can be installed in almost any location and can be used for both cooling and heating, and are relatively easy to install and maintain. Overall, air source heat pumps are a great solution. They offer an efficient, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective solution that can help reduce energy costs and carbon emissions.
Air source heat pumps are generally considered to be relatively quiet, especially compared to other heating systems such as boilers. The level of noise is largely dependent on the type of air source heat pump being used, with some types of units being quieter than others.
The outdoor components of an air source heat pump tend to make more noise than the indoor components, as the outdoor unit needs to draw in air from outside. Some of the more modern designs of air source heat pumps are designed specifically with noise reduction in mind, featuring quieter fans and compressor motors.
There are some external measures that can be taken to reduce noise levels further, such as ensuring that the outdoor unit is installed away from windows and other openings, or installing sound-proofing materials around the unit.
Yes, air source heat pumps are capable of providing hot water for homes. They use the air as a source of energy to heat water, making them an efficient and cost-effective way to provide hot water.
Yes, air source heat pumps are designed to work in both the summer and winter months. In the winter, the heat pump extracts heat from the air, even if temperatures are below freezing. Because of this, air source heat pumps are ideal for cold climates as they can provide a reliable source of heating throughout the year.
They are generally considered to be more affordable than other types of heating systems.
The cost of installing one will depend on the size and complexity of the system, but they typically require less maintenance and upkeep than other types of heating systems.
