AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS
An air source heat pump is a form of renewable energy which uses latent warm air from outside a building and places it inside the building in a simliar way to how air conditioning would work
WHAT ARE AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS?
Air source heat pumps are a type of mechanical heating and cooling system that uses the ambient air temperature to generate heat or cool a building. ASHPs can be used for both residential and commercial applications. There are two main types of ASHPs: air-to-air and air-to-water. Air-to-air ASHPs take in outdoor air and use it to either heat or cool the indoor air. Air-to-water ASHPs take in outdoor air and use it to either heat or cool water, which is then circulated through the building.
ASHPs are typically more efficient than traditional heating and cooling systems, such as furnaces and air conditioners. They can also be used in conjunction with solar panels to further increase their efficiency.
There are many reasons to install an air source heat pump in your home. First, air source heat pumps are very efficient, using less energy than traditional heating and cooling systems. This means that you’ll save money on your energy bills each month. Additionally, air source heat pumps are environmentally friendly, as they don’t produce any emissions. Finally, air source heat pumps can provide both heating and cooling, making them a great all-in-one solution for your home comfort needs.
THE BENEFITS OF AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS
REDUCE YOUR BILLS
Air source heat pumps can help you save money on your heating bill, and in some cases, you will also be able to benefit by heating your water too.
SUSTAINABLE & EFFICIENT
Air source heat pumps are an extremely efficient form or climate control and will perform efficiently all year round using a sustainable source of energy
LOW CARBON FOOTPRINT
Switching from coal or electricity based heating to air source heat pumps which uses outside air reduces your carbon footprint significantly
HEATING & COOLING OPTIONS
Depending on the type of air source heat pump used, you could benefit from heating when it is cold and cooling when the weather is warm.
