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.
Heat Pumps do not generate or convert heat from fuel, as do Oil Boilers or Wood Stoves do. Even in Colder Climates and Weather, the Heat Pump is able to transfer the ever present ambient heat in the ai outside of your home into it. One of the leaders in Air Source Heat Pumps is actually Scandinavia, who have been leading the market since the 1970s.
Air Source Heat Pump Systems do not only save money over older and traditional systems of energy – they are also much more effective, with Air Source Heat Pumps able to provide three times the energy that is required by the Pump for it 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, how 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. IThe Air Source Heat Pump is capable of doing this at temperatures well below -15c.It is capable of doing this even in temperatures well 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.
So, there is no need to worry about receiving adequate heat during a harsh Scottish winter. Indeed, given the Pump’s popularity in the colder Scandinavian climate, one shouldn’t worry about the impact of Scottish weather on the Heat Pump’s ability to operate in a colder climate.
The process works by having the refrigerant liquid absorb the heat from outside the home. 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.
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 liquid is then compressed into a gas and 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
An Air Source Heat Pump brings a variety of benefits.
First Maintenance rarely poses any issues for Air Source Heat Pumps.
A lot of people can provide extensive stories horror systems about an acting up boiler system, but Air Source Heat Pumps relative simplicity and intuitive design means they require very basic and simple maintenance.Many of the components that make up the Pump can carry extensive warranties and are designed to last long. With an average lifespan of nearly 20 years an Air Source Heat Pump will easily outlive a Boiler.
If you’re looking to replace a fuel based system, an Air Source Heat Pump has no need for any resource deliveries – meaning an end to constant deliveries of materials like oil.
