What is an Air Source Heat Pump?
An Air Source Heat Pump is in a lot of ways like a sort of ‘reverse’ fridge. Where a fridge extracts heat from its interior, an Air Source Heat Pump extracts it from the ambient air outside the home.
Air Source Heat Pumps do not generate, convert or create heat, as Wooden Stoves or Electricity does. An Air Source Heat Pump insteads transfers ambient warmth in the air outside of the house into the home. This process can easily performed even in colder climates and weather, with the colder Scandinavian countries being a market leader in the technology.
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 commercial manufacturing began in the 1970s with a market developing in Europe, primarily Scandinavia. 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?
In simple terms, the Air Source Heat Pump transfers heat in the air from outside the home into it. IEven at temperatures well below -15c, the Air Source Heat Pump is fully capable of the process.The Air Source Heat Pump is capable of doing this even in temperatures below -15c. Ultimately the Heat Pump is superb at drawing the 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’. 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.
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 Pump works by absorbing the ambient heat in the air from the outside into a liquid refrigerant.Now inside the pump and with the liquid, it is circulated and compressed into a gas. So the process causes the heat, now a gas, to increase in temperature before it is cycled through your homes heating system – providing you with warmth and hot water.
To break it down.
Via its refrigerant liquid, the Air Source Heat Pump absorbs the ambient heat.
The Heat Pumps liquid refrigerant is compressed into a gas which is cycled through the homes heating systems.
As the heat is transferred, the gas is condensed back into a liquid to begin the process again.
