How air source heat pumps work
Air source heat pumps are a great way to reduce your heating costs and carbon footprint at the same time. You’re protected from rising fuel costs, and can look forward to seven years of Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI) payments too.
How does it work?
Ok, this is how it heats your home. Sitting outside, the pump draws in air from outside, no matter the temperature. It passes the air into a liquid refrigerant, increasing the temperature and turning it into a gas. It’s then pushed through a compressor and heated up, from where it transfers into your home’s heating system. Now you’ve got efficient central heating, hot water, underfloor heating – whatever you need to make your home a cosy haven for your family.
Air source heat pumps deliver heating over longer periods of time at lower temperatures. This means that during the colder months it might need to be on constantly to effectively heat the home, and you will find that radiators aren’t as hot to touch as using gas or oil boilers. As an economical, cost-efficient way to heat your home, it’s the future.
