Air Source Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat Pumps are essentially super-efficient boilers, and use advanced technology to amplify heat collected from the air  to supply space heating and hot water.Heat Pumps can be used for both radiator and under-floor heating and for the provision of domestic hot water.

How an Air Source Heat Pump works

Heat Pumps are essentially super-efficient boilers, and use advanced technology to amplify heat collected from the air to supply space heating and hot water. Heat Pumps can heat both under-floor and radiator heating systems.

A Heat Pump works by taking low temperature from the air which is then transferred to a refrigerant. The refrigerant turns from liquid to gas and the gas is then compressed so that its temperature increases dramatically. This heat is then extracted and used to heat water in central heating radiators, under-floor heating or hot water cylinders. The cycle then continues.

A Heat Pump will generate up to 5kW of heat for every 1kW spent running the unit. This compares to a maximum of 0.9kW of heat generated by a boiler for every 1kW used to run it.

This of course results in a significant reduction in fuel bills, and even greater savings are made if the existing fuel is oil or liquid propane gas (LPG).
