Air Source Heat Pumps Dysart, 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?
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.
Traditional means of heating the home usually work by the generation or conversion of fuel into heat – i.e., an oil boiler works via oil fuel, a wood stove via burning wood – but an Air Heat Pump does not do this. 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. Indeed, since the 1970s, many of the colder Scandinavian countries have actually led the market in Air Source Heat Pumps.
Air Source Heat Pump Systems do not only save money over older and traditional systems of energy – they are also much more effective, with Air Source Heat Pumps able to provide three times the energy that is required by the Pump for it to run.
Heat Pumps were first manufactured on a commercial level in the 1970s, with a huge market for them developing in Europe – Scandinavia especially. Heat Pumps 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. The Heat Pump is excellent at drawing ambient 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.
There is no need to worry about receiving heat during a harsh Scottish winter. Indeed, given the Pump’s popularity in the colder Scandinavian climate, one shouldn’t worry about the impact of Scottish weather on the Heat Pump’s ability to operate in a colder climate.
The Pump works by absorbing the ambient heat in the air from the outside into a liquid refrigerant.Inside the heat pump, it circulates and is compressed into a gas. This increases the temperature, which is then cycled through the heating system within your home, providing you with heating and hot water.
To break it down.
The Air Source Heat Pump absorbs the ambient heat in the air into its refrigerant liquid.
The liquid is turned into a gas, and then compressed – before being passed into the homes heating system (i.e., your radiators, underfloor heating systems and hot water).
As the heat is transferred, the gas is condensed back into a liquid to begin the process again.
What are the benefits
Air Source Heat Pumps come with a myriad of advantages.
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.Backed by extensive warranties, many of the components that make up the Air Source Heat Pump are already long lasting. On average a Heat Pump will easily outlive a Boiler, with a lifespan of 20 years.
An Air Source Heat Pump also cuts out the need for deliveries of fuel – as are required by equipment such as oil boilers.
