Air Source Heat Pumps

Air source heat pumps convert heat contained within the air into energy that can then be used to provide heating and hot water. They are classed as a renewable energy source because the heat taken from the air is replenished by the sun.

There are two types of air source heat pump - 'air to air' and 'air to water'. Air to air heat pumps release captured energy through an air heat exchanger, which is then released - either directly or forced around the home using a fan and ducting. Air to water heat pumps release the energy into a water circuit which is connected to a traditional wet heating system or underfloor heating.

Air Source Heat Pumps

These are ideal for use where it's not possible to drill a borehole or lay surface collectors for a ground source heat pump. They are generally used to complement more traditional heating systems, and typically deliver up to 80% of the space heating and hot water requirements for a well-insulated building, while the existing system delivers the balance on the coldest days or during peak demand. Air source heat pumps can be used with underfloor heating systems and radiators, but an additional back-up heating system such as a high efficiency boiler will be required.

Exhaust Airheat Pump

These are designed for small dwellings and extract air via ductwork connected to the warm areas of the building such as bathrooms, kitchens and utility rooms. This heat is then transferred to water for general use and heating.

Air to Air

An air to air heat pump can provide both heating and cooling, and some models have air purification technology which is beneficial to allergy sufferers.

The heat pump comprises an outdoor and an indoor unit which converts heat energy in the air into heat for your home.

Not recommended for larger properties, but ideal for conservatories and apartments.
