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.
Heat Pumps do not generate or convert heat from fuel, as do Oil Boilers or Wood Stoves do. Rather, they transfer the existing (and always present) ambient heat in the air outside of the home into the home – a process that be performed even in colder climates. One of the leading markets in Heat Pumps is actually Scandinavia, who have been making use of the technology since the 70s.
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 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. 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.
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. Within the pump, the refrigerant fluid is via a process of circulation, compressed into gas.The compression of the liquid into gas increases its temperature, and allows the gas to be cycled through your heating system to provide you warmth and hot water.
What are the benefits
Air Source Heat Pumps come with a myriad of advantages.
