What Are Heat Pumps

Air Source Heat Pump

Air-to-water heat pumps use the heat energy from the outside air and increase its heat through its unique refrigerant cycle. When the temperature of the outdoor air has been increased it’s then used to heat up the water in the cylinder to supply the home’s central heating and hot water system. Even when it’s freezing outside this is due to the refrigerant gas in the systems boiling point.

A heat pump controls the temperature by transferring heat. There are three essential components to a heat pump: the outdoor unit (evaporator), the indoor unit(s) (condenser) and the refrigerant. The refrigerant transfers the heat as it circulates between the outdoor and indoor unit(s).

How it works

Air Source heat pumps are a renewable source of energy which are seen as part of the government’s incentives to go green. Households can benefit from the RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) scheme which means that you are entailed to cashback on the amount of energy produced on a quarterly basis.

The unique thing about the Air Source heat pump is that it has annual efficiencies of 300% and COP of 5* this being more efficient than the fossil fuel boilers which is under the 100% mark. Like the conventional methods, you can run radiators and underfloor heating with the optional running solar energy. What’s crazy is that for every 1 kilowatt of electricity, the heat pump uses, it generates about 3-4 kilowatts of renewable heat from the air.

The purpose is to use as little energy as possible and give you the optimal amount of heating whilst reducing the impact of global warming. The Air to Water heat pump systems is perfect for this.
