Air Source Heat Pumps Moffat, Scotland

Air Source Heat Pumps are a rising star in the world of alternative energy services, offering a solid means by which to cut the growing cost of energy bills – especially as older heating services become increasingly expensive to maintain. But 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.

Whereas other heating systems, like wood stoves and oil boilers, work by burning fuel or by converting electricity to generate heat, Heat Pumps do not generate or convert energy into heat. Instead, the Air Source Heat Pump works by transferring existing the ambient heat in the air outside into the home. This can be performed even in colder climate, as there is always some ambient heat present in the air. Many of the colder Scandinavian countries are actually market leaders in Air Source Heat Pumps.

Heat Pump Systems aren’t just cheaper than systems such as stoves – they are also in many cases, much more effective. An Air Source Heat Pump can provide up to three times more energy than the electricity it requires to run.

Heat Pumps commercial manufacturing began in the 1970s with a market developing in Europe, primarily Scandinavia. Heat Pumps have only recently become popular in the UK.

How Does It Work?

Now we know what exactly an Air Source Heat Pump is, our next question is how does it actually work?

In rough terms, an Air Source Heat Pump absorbs the heat energy from outside the home and transfers it into the home. Ambient warmth in the air means that even at temperatures of -20c, the Air Source Heat Pump can transfer heat into the home. The Air Source Heat Pump tends to be installed outdoors – usually at the side or the back of your 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’. So the Heat Pump effectively extracts the freely available energy all year round, as even limited or ambient heat can provide a source of warmth for your home.

The use of ambient heat sometimes worries people, as they often believe that due to the cold Scottish weather, they might not be able to generate a large enough amount of heat with the Air Pump. This shouldn’t concern you, as the Air Source heat Pump has a long history of success in the (much colder) Scandinavian countries.

The process works by having the refrigerant liquid absorb the heat from outside the home. The Heat Pump then circulates the refrigerant fluid and compresses it into a gas, a process which increases its temperature. This gas is then circulated and cycled via your heating system, providing you with warmth and hot water. So rather than generating heat or converting it, the Heat Pump works by gradually increasing existing heat.

So how does it all work?

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

The refrigerant liquid is then compressed, becoming a gas, and this 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

An Air Source Heat Pump brings a variety of benefits.

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

With its relative simplicity and intuitive design, the myriad of issues and need for extensive repairs faced by systems like Boilers can be avoided by an Air Source Heat Pump.Many components that make up an Air Source Heat Pump are designed to be long lasting and are backed by strong warranties. With an average lifespan of nearly 20 years an Air Source Heat Pump will easily outlive a Boiler.

If you’re looking to replace a fuel based system, an Air Source Heat Pump has no need for any resource deliveries – meaning an end to constant deliveries of materials like oil.
