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?
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.
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. Instead, the Heat Pump transfers the always present ambient heat in the air outside of the home into the home – a process that is able to be performed even in Colder Climates. One of the leaders in Air Source Heat Pumps is actually Scandinavia, who have been leading the market since the 1970s.
Air Source Heat Pumps provide not just a significant benefit to saving costs but are even more efficient at generating energy. Indeed, an Air Source Heat Pump can generate three times the energy that is required by it to run.
Heat Pumps commercial manufacturing began in the 1970s with a market developing in Europe, primarily Scandinavia. Heat Pumps have only recently become popular in the UK.
How Does It Work?
So now that we know what an Air Source Heat Pump is, the next question is, how does it work?
Roughly, the Air Source Heat Pump transfers the ambient heat from outside the home and into it – and can even do so in temperatures below -20c. No matter how cold it is, there is always a small amount of heat in the air. Heat Pumps tend to be installed outdoors, often besides or behind the home.
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.
So, there is no need to worry about receiving adequate 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.
So the Heat Pump absorbs the heat from outside the house into its refrigerant liquid. The refrigerant fluid is then circulated and compressed into a gas – which increases its temperature. To provide you with warmth and hot water, the heated gas is cycled through your heating system. So there is no generation of heat, just the gradual increasing of an existing warmth.
So how does it work? Roughly,
Using its refrigerant liquid, the Air Source Heat Pump can absorb the ambient heat in the air.
The refrigerant liquid becomes a gas, which is then compressed and passed into the homes heating systems – so radiators, hot water or underfloor heating systems.
As the process is going on, the gas is condensed back into a liquid refrigerant, so the process can begin all over again.
What are the benefits
The Air Source Heat Pump has a lot of pros.
First off, Maintenance, often a real issue for a lot of other systems, is of no real problem for a Heat Pump.
Many have extensive experience dealing with the issues of an acting up boiler, and long back and forths with engineers and plumbers trying to get them to work properly.By virtue of their simple and intuitive design and components, Air Source Heat Pumps tend to require only basic maintenance and their components are often backed by strong warranties.Air Source Heat Pumps are likewise tend to have a longer lifespan than a Boiler, often lasting a solid 20 years.
If you’re looking to replace a fuel based system, an Air Source Heat Pump has no need for any resource deliveries – meaning an end to constant deliveries of materials like oil.
