About Air Source Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat Pumps operate by taking the energy from the air outside and transfers it into water to power your central heating and hot water supply. It works in a similar way to a refrigerator but extracts heat from the outside air, even in the winter months, moving the air over a copper coil which contains a refrigerant.

The air contains heat which boils the refrigerant producing a vapour. It passes through a heat exchanger and heats up the water, directing it to either under floor heating coils, large radiators or your hot water cylinder.

How do air source heat pumps work

Air source heat pumps work in a very similar way to a refrigerator, just in reverse. An evaporator collects heat from the ambient air, even at temperatures as low as -20° C. The evaporator contains liquid refrigerant, the heat transfers from the air to the refrigerant. This process increases the temperature of the refrigerant, changing it from a liquid to a gas.

The gas is then compressed by a compressor, this causes its temperature to significantly increase. The hot gas then passes through a condenser where the heat energy is transferred to the water used in the household heating system. Finally the cooled refrigerant turns back into a liquid. After its passes through an expansion valve it returns to the evaporator and the process starts over again.

Does an air source heat pump system work all year round?

The system performs down to air temperatures of -10°c which means that they are more than suitable for installations within the UK. Hot water and Heating can be provided 365 days a year. In properties with larger heat demand, boilers or multi fuel burners can be successfully integrated.

Can a air source heat pump reduce my carbon footprint?

Yes the system we install could help you significantly reduce your CO2 emissions compared to conventional oil or LPG boilers.

Does air source heat pump units require a lot of maintenance?

No, because it comes as a factory-sealed unit, like a fridge. The life span of a typical heat pump system is 20-25 years. We do offer our clients a maintenance contract to ensure that the system is in good working order and you are getting optimum performance from your heat pump.
