Air Source Heat Pumps are quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to heat the home, especially with people who are looking to save money and cut the cost of bills as traditional means become more and more expensive to maintain. But what exactly is an Air Source Heat Pump?

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.
Whereas Wooden Stoves and Oil boilers convert heat from fuel, and electric generation converts energy into heat, the Air Source Heat Pump does not convert or generate heat. Rather Air Source Heat Pumps make use of the ambient warmth outside the house always present in the air, which is then transferred inside the house. Even in colder climates, this process can be performed – with colder Scandinavian countries being a market leader in Air Source Heat Pumps.
Added to the benefit of cost saving the benefit of the greater generation of energy by an Air Source Heat Pump. Air Source Heat Pumps can generate three times the energy that it requires 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 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’. 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.
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 absorbs the ambient heat in the air into its refrigerant fluid. Within the pump, the refrigerant fluid is via a process of circulation, compressed into gas.The compression processes increases the temperature, and the gas is cycled through your heating system, providing you with warmth and hot water.
Rough, the process works as following.
Using its refrigerant liquid, the Air Source Heat Pump can absorb the ambient heat in the air.
The liquid is then compressed and becomes a gas which is passed and cycled through the homes heating systems, providing you with warmth and hot water.
As the transfer of the heat is undergoing, the gas is condensed back into liquid refrigerant, allowing the process to occur all over again.
What are the benefits
Air Source Heat Pumps come with a myriad of advantages.
Firstly, Maintenance is rarely an issue for Air Source Heat Pumps.
A lot of people can provide extensive stories horror systems about an acting up boiler system, but Air Source Heat Pumps relative simplicity and intuitive design means they require very basic and simple maintenance.Many of the components that make up the Pump can carry extensive warranties and are designed to last long. With an average lifespan of nearly 20 years an Air Source Heat Pump will easily outlive a Boiler.
Likewise, if you’re looking to replace a fuel-based system, you’ll be cutting out the need for any deliveries of materials like oil.
