With energy bills growing for practically everyone, Air Source Heat Pumps are rapidly becoming a popular alternative to many traditional means of heating, offering ways to cut bills and save cash. But this raises a question – what exactly 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.
Air Source Heat Pumps do not generate, convert or create heat, as Wooden Stoves or Electricity does. An Air Source Heat Pump insteads transfers ambient warmth in the air outside of the house into the home. This process can be performed even in cold climates – with the market leader in Air Source Heat Pumps actually being the much colder Scandinavian countries.
Not only do heat pump systems cost less than systems like stoves, but they are often much more effective. An Air Source Heat Pump will provide three times the energy 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. The popularity of Heat Pumps is relatively recent 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. IIt is capable of doing this even in temperatures well below -15c.The Air Source Heat Pump is capable of doing this even in temperatures below -15c. The Heat Pump is excellent at drawing 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.
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.
So the Heat Pump absorbs the heat from outside the house into its refrigerant liquid. This fluid is then circulated and compressed into a gas, which is warmed by the process. To provide you with warmth and hot water, the heated gas is cycled through your heating system. Instead of generating or converting heat, the Pump gradually increases existing heat.
What are the benefits
The Air Source Heat Pump has a lot of pros.
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. Many of the components of an Air Source Heat Pump are long lasting and come with strong warranties and guarantees to ensure you are protected from any potential technical issues. Typically they will last significantly longer than a boiler as well – on average a Heat Pump can last almost 20 years.
