What is an Air Source Heat Pump?

Air source heat pumps also referred to as Air to Water Heat Pumps, although relatively new technology to the UK have been used in Europe for over thirty years as
they work by absorbing heat from the outside air, with the capability to extract heat from the air even when the outside temperature is as low as minus 15° C.

How a Air source Heat pump works

As with Ground Source Heat Pumps Air Source Heating is a very efficient and cost-effective alternative to LPG or Oil fired heating in rural areas.

Air source heat pumps are an ideal alternative to Ground source heat pumps for any property which does not have the space for a ground loop to be installed.  As there is no need for boreholes or ground loops the installation cost is considerably lower than that of a ground source heat pump.
