What are they?
Heat your home with energy absorbed from the air around you.
Air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, or warm air convectors and 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.
An air-to-water system
These systems distribute heat via your wet central heating system. Heat pumps can work at low temperatures which are suitable for under floor heating and high temperatures for conventional wall mounted radiators and hot water.
An air-to-air system
These systems produce warm air which is circulated to heat your home, providing heat in the winter and can also be used for cool air in the summer.
With heating bills continuing to rise, air source heat pumps provide significant annual savings compared to conventional boilers, oil or LPG.
