Air Source Heat Pumps Peel, Scotland
Air Source Pumps have become one of the most popular means to heat people’s homes in Scotland – especially among those who are eager to save and cut down the growing costs of energy bills (which among traditional heating means have only continued to grow). But what 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.
Traditional means of heating the home usually work by the generation or conversion of fuel into heat – i.e., an oil boiler works via oil fuel, a wood stove via burning wood – but an Air Heat Pump does not do this. They instead work by transferring the existing ambient heat in the air outside your home into your house. This transferring can be performed even in colder climates, as there is always some heat present in the air. Indeed, many of the colder Scandinavian countries are market leaders in Air Source Heat Pumps and have been since the 1970s.
Air Source Heat Pumps provide not just a significant benefit to saving costs but are even more efficient at generating energy. Air Source Heat Pumps can generate three times the energy that it requires to run..
Heat Pumps first saw wide scale manufacturing on a commercial level in the 1970s – with a large market for them developing in Europe and Scandinavia. But they have only recently become popular in the UK.
How Does It Work?
So, how does an Air Source Heat Pump work?
The Air Source Heat Pump transfers energy from outside the home and into it. Ambient warmth in the air means that even at temperatures of -20c, the Air Source Heat Pump can transfer heat into the home. The Air Source Heat Pump tends to be installed outdoors – usually at the side or the back of your 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’. 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 by ‘absorbing’ the ambient heat via its refrigerant fluid. Within the pump, the refrigerant fluid is via a process of circulation, compressed into gas.This compression process increases the temperature of the gas, which is then cycled through your heating system – giving you 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 refrigerant liquid becomes a gas, which is then compressed and passed into the homes heating systems – so radiators, hot water or underfloor heating systems.
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
An Air Source Heat Pump brings a variety of benefits.
First Maintenance rarely poses any issues for Air Source Heat Pumps.
Many people have had to deal with issues poised by a boiler failing.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 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.
