[dropcaps_dark] A [/dropcaps_dark] ir Source Heat Pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used to warm radiators, underfloor heating systems, or hot water in your home. An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -15° C. Heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the air is constantly being renewed naturally.
There are thousands of people living in the UK, still dependent on oil and gas for central heating and hot water for their home.
Despite millions of pounds spent on publicity promoting alternatives for heating your hour home, including offers of financial support many people still don’t know about the benefits of these great systems.
So important are heat pumps for lowering fuel bills and CO2 emissions, you can receive £850 cash incentive when you replace your Oil/Gas boiler with an air source heat pump.
With Air Source Heat Pumps you will lower your fuel bills, especially if you are replacing conventional electric heating. It could provide you with an income through the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), need little maintenance – they’re called ‘fit and forget’ technology and are easier to install than a ground source heat pump.
If you have solar panel on your property or are thinking of getting them this is a combination made in heaven. On average for every 1kW that the air source heat pump needs it will give you 4kW of energy back; this is fantastic but then think if that electrical energy it is using was coming from your solar PV panels. This amounts to huge savings on your bills all round. See our combo section on more info about combined systems.
The main part of the heat pump is situated outside the property where it sucks in the air to transform into the heat you need. This is then pumped trough pipes that can run your underfloor heating, radiators or possibly run to a combined system that produces your hot water and heating via a storage device such as a cylinder.
If you would like more information or prices on this type of system we can arrange a free survey of your property. After an agreement on design we do all the paperwork for you and will even apply for a RHI Premium Payment towards your systems costs.
