Air Source Heat Pumps are quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to heat the home, especially with people who are looking to save money and cut the cost of bills as traditional means become more and more expensive to maintain. But what is an Air Source Heat Pump?

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.

So, whereas other heating systems work by burning fuel (i.e., a wood stove) or by converting electricity (solar panels) in order to generate heat, Heat Pumps do not actually create or generate heat in the first place. Instead, the Air Source Heat Pump works by transferring existing the ambient heat in the air outside into the home. Since ambient heat is always present in the air, this transferring process can be conducted even in colder climates. Many of the colder Scandinavian countries are actually market leaders in Air Source Heat Pumps.

Not only do heat pump systems cost less than systems like stoves, but they are often much more effective. An Air Source Heat Pump will provide three times the energy it requires to run.

Heat Pumps first saw wide scale manufacturing on a commercial level in the 1970s – with a large market for them developing in Europe and Scandinavia. But they have only recently become popular in the UK.

How Does It Work?

So how exactly does an Air Source Heat Pump work?

Roughly, the Air Source Heat Pump transfers the ambient heat from outside the home and into it – and can even do so in temperatures below -20c. No matter how cold it is, there is always a small amount of heat in the air. Heat Pumps tend to be installed outdoors, often besides or behind the home.

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 Heat Pump works via absorbing the heat into its refrigerant fluid. Within the pump, this refrigerant fluid is circulated and compressed into a gas.This compression process increases the temperature of the gas, which is then cycled through your heating system – giving you warmth and hot water.

So how does it all work?

With its refrigerant liquid, the Heat Pump can absorb the ambient heat.
The refrigerant liquid becomes a gas, which is then compressed and passed into the homes heating systems – so radiators, hot water or underfloor heating systems.
As the transferring of the heat occurs, the gas is condensed into liquid again, allowing the process to continue.

What are the benefits

Air Source Heat Pumps come with a myriad of advantages.

First Maintenance rarely poses any issues for Air Source Heat Pumps.

A lot of people can provide extensive stories horror systems about an acting up boiler system, but Air Source Heat Pumps relative simplicity and intuitive design means they require very basic and simple maintenance.Many of the components that make up the Pump can carry extensive warranties and are designed to last long. 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.
