Air Source Heat Pumps Wick, 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 this raises a question – what exactly is an Air Source Heat Pump?

  • What is an Air Source Heat Pump?
  • How does it work?
  • What are the benefits?

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.

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. Instead, the Air Source Heat Pump works by transferring existing the ambient heat in the air outside into the home. Since ambient heat is always present in the air, this transferring process can be conducted even in colder climates. Indeed, many of the colder Scandinavian countries are market leaders in Air Source Heat Pumps and have been since the 1970s.

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 were first manufactured on a commercial level in the 1970s, with a huge market for them developing in Europe – Scandinavia especially. But they have only recently become popular in the UK.

How Does It Work?

So, how does an Air Source Heat Pump 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.

So even during a harsh and cold Scottish winter, there will be no need to worry about receiving adequate heat. 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 Air Source Heat Pump works by absorbing the heat in the air into a liquid refrigerant.Inside the heat pump, it circulates and is compressed into a gas. The circulation process increases the temperature of the gas – which is then cycled through your homes heating system, providing you with warmth and hot water.

So, to break it down.

The Air Source Heat Pump absorbs the ambient heat in the air into its refrigerant liquid.
The refrigerant liquid is compressed and becomes a gas, which is cycled through the homes heating systems – so radiators and hot water.
While the heat transfers, the gas is condensed back into the liquid refrigerant to begin the process again.

What are the benefits

An Air Source Heat Pump brings a variety of benefits.

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

With its relative simplicity and intuitive design, the myriad of issues and need for extensive repairs faced by systems like Boilers can be avoided by an Air Source Heat Pump.Backed by extensive warranties, many of the components that make up the Air Source Heat Pump are already long lasting. 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.
