Air-source Heat Pumps

An air-source heat pump works by using heat from the air that is absorbed at low temperature into a fluid.

This fluid then passes through a compressor where its temperature is increased, and transfers its higher temperature heat through a heat exchanger to the heating and hot water circuits of the house. This heat can be used to heat homes via underfloor heating, radiators or warm air convectors. Some heat pumps come with the added benefit of cooling, where the heat pump actively reduces room temperature on warmer days.

For the best results, the aim is to match the heat load and distribution type, whether underfloor heating, radiators or warm-air convectors, to achieve low circulation temperatures. We select models with top-class efficiencies and responsive controls which mean lowest running costs.

The installation costs of an air source heat pump are generally less than that of a ground source heat pump. Government grants are often available to help with the installation costs of this renewable technology. See our [Find out more] section or contact us today for more information.
