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. 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 leading markets in Heat Pumps is actually Scandinavia, who have been making use of the technology since the 70s.
Added to the benefit of cost saving the benefit of the greater generation of energy by an Air Source Heat Pump. An Air Source Heat Pump can actually generate three times the energy that 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?
Now we know what exactly an Air Source Heat Pump is, our next question is how does it actually work?
In simple terms, the Air Source Heat Pump transfers heat in the air from outside the home into it. IThe Air Source Heat Pump is capable of doing this at 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’. 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.
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 of the liquid into gas increases its temperature, and allows the gas to be cycled through your heating system to provide you warmth and hot water.
Rough, the process works as following.
Via its refrigerant liquid, the Air Source Heat Pump absorbs the ambient heat.
This refrigerant liquid then becomes a gas via a process of compression, and is in turn passed and cycled through the homes heating systems to provide you with warmth.
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
