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. Rather, they transfer the existing (and always present) ambient heat in the air outside of the home into the home – a process that 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.
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 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 now that we know what an Air Source Heat Pump is, the next question is, how does it work?
The Air Source Heat Pump transfers energy from outside the home and into it. Even at temperatures below -20c, the Air Source Heat Pump can transfer heat into the home, as there is always some ambient warmth in the air. The Air Source Heat Pump is usually installed outdoors, often at the side or back of the property.
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.
The use of ambient heat sometimes worries people, as they often believe that due to the cold Scottish weather, they might not be able to generate a large enough amount of heat with the Air Pump. This shouldn’t concern you, as the Air Source heat Pump has a long history of success in the (much colder) Scandinavian countries.
The Heat Pump absorbs the ambient heat in the air into its refrigerant fluid. Inside the pump, this liquid is circulated and compressed into a 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 the Heat Pump Process work?
With its refrigerant liquid, the Air Source Heat Pump is able to absorb the ambient heat in the air.
The refrigerant liquid is then compressed, becoming a gas, and this is cycled through the heating systems of the home.
As the heat transfers, the gas is condensed again – back into the liquid refrigerant – allowing the process to continue.
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 people have had to deal with issues poised by a boiler failing.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 furthermore tend to have longer lifespans than Boilers, usually 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.
