What is an Air Source Heat Pump?
In a way, Air Source Heat Pumps are a lot like a reverse fridge, extracting the heat from the air outside in a manner similar to how a fridge extracts heat from its interior.
Whereas other heating systems generate heat by the burning of fuel (so for example, a wood or oil), or through the conversion of electricity, Heat Pumps never generate heat or even create it. Even in Colder Climates and Weather, the Heat Pump is able to transfer the ever present ambient heat in the ai outside of your home into it. A leading market in Air Source Heat Pumps is actually Scandinavia, who since the 1970s have been making use of the technology.
Heat Pump Systems aren’t just cheaper to run than systems like stoves, they’re also 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 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?
In simple terms, the Air Source Heat Pump transfers heat in the air from outside the home into it. IIt is capable of doing this even in temperatures well below -15c.It is capable of doing this even in temperatures well below -15c. The Heat Pump is excellent at drawing heat from the air.
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’. The Heat Pump effectively extracts ‘free’ energy always available. This limited, ambient heat is always useful in providing warmth to 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 Heat Pump works by ‘absorbing’ the ambient heat via its refrigerant fluid. Inside the pump, this liquid 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.
To break it down.
The Air Source Heat Pump absorbs the heat in the air via its refrigerant liquid.
The refrigerant liquid is compressed and becomes a gas, which is cycled through the homes heating systems – so radiators and hot water.
While the heat is transferred, the gas is condensed back into its liquid refrigerant form, ready to begin the whole process again.
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.
