Air Source Heat Pumps Bridge End, Scotland

Air Source Pumps have become one of the most popular means to heat people’s homes in Scotland – especially among those who are eager to save and cut down the growing costs of energy bills (which among traditional heating means have only continued to grow). But what is an Air Source Heat Pump?

  • What is an Air Source Heat Pump?
  • How does it work?

What is an Air Source Heat Pump?

Air Source Heat Pumps can be thought of as being much like a reverse fridge. Where a fridge extracts the heat from its interior, Air Source Heat Pump makes use of the ambient heat found in the air outside of the home.

Unlike other heating systems which generate or convert fuel (for example, wood or oil being burned in a stove or boiler, or the conversion of electricity into heat), Heat Pumps do not convert or generate heat. Instead, the Heat Pump transfers the always present ambient heat in the air outside of the home into the home – a process that is able to be performed even in Colder Climates. A leading market in Air Source Heat Pumps is actually Scandinavia, who since the 1970s have been making use of the technology.

Alongside the benefit of cost, Air Source Heat Pumps bring the benefit of being significantly more efficient at generating energy. An Air Source Heat Pump can actually generate three times the energy that it requires to run..

Heat Pumps were first manufactured on a commercial level in the 1970s, with a huge market for them developing in Europe – Scandinavia especially. The popularity of Heat Pumps is relatively recent in the UK.

How Does It Work?

So how exactly does an Air Source Heat Pump work?

Roughly, the Air Source Heat Pump absorbs energy from outside the home and transfers it into the home. It can do so even at temperatures below -20c, because no matter how cold it is, there is always some heat within the air. Typically, the Air Source Heat Pump will be installed outdoors, often at the back or side of the property.

Effectively, the heat pump extracts this freely available energy all year round – as even the limited ambient heat is able to provide a ‘ground source’. Effectively, the heat pump extracts this freely available energy all year round – as even the limited ambient heat is able to provide a ‘ground source’ for the heating of your home.

This can banish the potential worry regarding the receiving of adequate warmth during a particularly harsh Scottish winter. Given the Pumps success in the often much colder Scandinavian climate (a market leader in the technology), one shouldn’t worry too much about whether it will be able to provide your home adequate heat.

The air source heat pump works by absorbing the heat outside into a fluid within – a refrigerant.Inside the heat pump, it circulates and is compressed into a gas. This increases the temperature, which is then cycled through the heating system within your home, providing you with heating and hot water.

So how does the Heat Pump Process work?

With its refrigerant liquid, the Air Source Heat Pump is able to absorb the ambient heat in the air.

The liquid is then compressed into a gas and is cycled through the heating systems of the home.
As the heat transfers, the gas is condensed again – back into the liquid refrigerant – allowing the process to continue.

What are the benefits

The Air Source Heat Pump has a lot of pros.

First off, Maintenance, often a real issue for a lot of other systems, is of no real problem for a Heat Pump.

Many people can provide stories about having to deal with an acting up boiler system – but these back and forth issues with a boiler are evaded by the simplicity and intuitive design of an Air Source Heat Pump.Many of the components that make up the Pump can carry extensive warranties and are designed to last long. With a strong lifespan of 20 years, an Air Source Heat Pump can easily outlive other, older systems.

An Air Source Heat Pump also cuts out the need for deliveries of fuel – as are required by equipment such as oil boilers.
