Air Source Heat Pumps operate similarly to Water and Ground Source heat pumps except that it derives its energy from the air.
They are proving really popular across the UK given that they are a sustainable way of providing heat and hot water to a property.
The renewable energy solution can significantly reduce utility bills compared with traditional fossil fuels and they have a straightforward installation process.
How Does It Work?
The heat energy descends from the air which is fan assisted so it circulates quickly through an external unit. The heat is transferred to the pump via a heat exchanger and this upgrades it to a higher temperature and is used to heat water to provide the central heating.
Advantages of Air Source Heat Pumps

Easy to install as a new build as well in a renovation or retrofit project
Ideal for homes and business in urban settings
Sustainable; no fossil fuels used. System runs on electricity supplied by renewable source.

(i) Easy and straightforward installation (“Plug & Play”).
(ii) Suitable for a New Build scenario. Also, very convenient to install in a Renovation or Retrofit situation. The higher temperature systems can integrate easily with existing steel radiators.
(iii) Less costly to install than Ground or Water Source Heat Pumps (typically), so payback can be achieved in a shorter timeframe.
(iv) Ideal for Urban or Suburban areas where space is limited and access to the site is restricted.
(v) Sustainable means of providing heat and hot water for your property. No fossil fuels are used as the system runs on electricity, which can be supplied (at least in part) by renewable sources such as Wind or Solar PV panels.
(vi) Very efficient means to heat your property, both from an energy and cost perspective. One kW of electricity consumed by your Air Source Heat Pump, will typically generate up to 4 kWs of heat energy.
