Air Source Heat Pumps have become an incredibly popular way to cut the cost of energy bills , especially as older heating means become more and more expensive to maintain. But what is an Air Source Heat Pump? How does it work?

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. An Air Source Heat Pump insteads transfers 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.

Heat Pump Systems aren’t just cheaper to run than systems like stoves, they’re also much more effective. Air Source Heat Pumps can furthermore provide up to three times the energy than it takes 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’. 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.

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. This fluid is then circulated and compressed into a gas, which is warmed by the process. This gas is then circulated and cycled via your heating system, providing you with warmth and hot water. So there is no generation of heat, just the gradual increasing of an existing warmth.

To break it down.

Via its refrigerant liquid, the Air Source Heat Pump absorbs the ambient heat.
The Heat Pumps liquid refrigerant is compressed into a gas which is cycled through the homes heating systems.
While the heat transfers, the gas is condensed back into the liquid refrigerant to begin the process again.

What are the benefits

Air Source Heat Pumps come with a myriad of advantages.

First off, Maintenance, often a real issue for a lot of other systems, is of no real problem for a Heat Pump.

Many have extensive horror stories of dealing with the issues posed by a faulty boiler system, but Air Source Heat Pumps are simple and require only basic maintenance. Air Source Heat Pumps also tend to be built from long lasting components, as well as strong warranties and guarantees that ensure you are insulated any technical issues. Typically they will last significantly longer than a boiler as well – on average a Heat Pump can last almost 20 years.

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.
