Air Source Heat Pumps Ellon, Scotland
Air Source Pumps have become one of the most popular means to heat people’s homes in Scotland – especially among those who are eager to save and cut down the growing costs of energy bills (which among traditional heating means have only continued to grow). 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. They instead work by transferring the existing ambient heat in the air outside your home into your house. This can be performed even in colder climate, as there is always some ambient heat present in the air. Many of the colder Scandinavian countries are actually market leaders in Air Source Heat Pumps.
Not just do Air Source Heat Pump Systems save money compared to older and more traditional systems of heating – they’re also significantly more effective, as Air Source Heat Pumps can provide three times the energy that is required by them 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. Heat Pumps have only recently become popular in the UK.
How Does It Work?
Now we know what exactly an Air Source Heat Pump is, our next question is how does it actually 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.It is capable of doing this even in temperatures well 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’. 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.
So even during a harsh and cold Scottish winter, there will be no need to worry about receiving adequate heat. 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.
What are the benefits
An Air Source Heat Pump brings a variety of benefits.
First Maintenance rarely poses any issues for Air Source Heat Pumps.
Many have extensive horror stories of dealing with the issues posed by a faulty boiler system, but Air Source Heat Pumps are simple and require only basic maintenance. Air Source Heat Pumps also tend to be built from long lasting components, as well as strong warranties and guarantees that ensure you are insulated any technical issues.
