What is an air source heat pump?

An air source heat pump, sometimes referred to as an air-to-water source heat pump, transfers heat from the outside air to water, which heats your rooms via radiators or underfloor heating. It can also heat water stored in a hot water cylinder for your hot taps, showers and baths.

Heat from the air is absorbed into a fluid. This fluid then passes through a heat exchanger into the heat pump, which raises the temperature and then transfers that heat to water.

 

Benefits of the systems.

  • Low running costs, which can help reduce energy bills
  • Homeowners could benefit from Government incentives, such as the RHI scheme
  • Removes the need for fuel to be delivered and stored at home, which is common in homes that are in off-gas areas and rely on alternative fuels, such as oil
  • Heat pumps produce no emissions and are much more environmentally friendly than traditional heating systems
  • They operate efficiently even in cold temperatures. Just 25% of the energy used by a heat pump is provided by electricity, with the remaining 75% being generated by the environment through the ground, water or air
  • The utilisation of natural energy sources means the approach to heating and hot water production is particularly sustainable
  • Emissions free
  • Incredibly quiet during operation
  • Heat pumps work well with both underfloor heating and radiators with low surface temperatures
  • Can be used as part of a climate controlled system within the home
  • Simple and robust technology with low maintenance and a long service life

 

 

Will a heat pump save me money on my energy bill?

Running costs will depend on how your heat pump is designed and how it is operated. Savings on your energy bill will also depend on the system you are replacing.

You can see potential annual savings of installing a standard air source heat pump, including any recommended radiator upgrades, in an average sized, four-bedroom detached home, below.
