Air Source Heat Pumps Robroyston, Scotland
Air Source Heat Pumps are quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to heat the home, especially with people who are looking to save money and cut the cost of bills as traditional means become more and more expensive to maintain. But what is an Air Source Heat Pump?

What is an Air Source Heat Pump?
In a way, Air Source Heat Pumps are a lot like a reverse fridge, extracting the heat from the air outside in a manner similar to how a fridge extracts heat from its interior.
Unlike Wooden Stoves or Oil Boilers, Air Source Heat Pumps do not convert fuel into heat, and unlike electrical generation, do not convert energy into heat. Instead, the Air Source Heat Pump transfers the ambient warmth in the air outside of the house into the home. Even in colder climates, this process can be performed – with colder Scandinavian countries being a market leader in Air Source Heat Pumps.
Not only do heat pump systems cost less than systems like stoves, but they are often much more effective. An Air Source Heat Pump will provide three times the energy 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. The popularity of Heat Pumps is relatively recent 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?
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’. 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.
So the Heat Pump absorbs the heat from outside the house into its refrigerant liquid. The Heat Pump then circulates the refrigerant fluid and compresses it into a gas, a process which increases its temperature. This gas is cycled through your heating system to provide you with warmth and hot water. So there is no generation of heat, just the gradual increasing of an existing warmth.
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 transferring of the heat occurs, the gas is condensed into liquid again, allowing the process to continue.
What are the benefits
The Air Source Heat Pump has a lot of pros.
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 a strong lifespan of 20 years, an Air Source Heat Pump can easily outlive other, older systems.
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.
