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.
Heat Pumps do not generate or convert heat from fuel, as do Oil Boilers or Wood Stoves do. 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.
Heat Pump Systems aren’t just cheaper to run than systems like stoves, they’re also much more effective. An Air Source Heat Pump will provide three times the energy it requires to run.
Heat Pumps commercial manufacturing began in the 1970s with a market developing in Europe, primarily Scandinavia. But they 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 works via absorbing the heat 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.
So how does it all work?
With its refrigerant liquid, the Heat Pump can absorb the ambient heat.
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 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.
Firstly, Maintenance is rarely an issue for Air Source Heat Pumps.
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.But unlike Boilers, Air Source Heat Pumps are built out of relatively simple components and require basic maintenance, and 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.
An Air Source Heat Pump also cuts out the need for deliveries of fuel – as are required by equipment such as oil boilers.
