What is an Air Source Heat Pump?

An air source heat pump, also known as an air-to-water heat pump, is a device that transfers heat from the outside air to water. This in turn heats rooms in your home through radiators or underfloor heating. It is also capable of heating water stored in a hot water cylinder for your hot taps, showers, and baths.

How does Air Source Heat Pump work?

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

What are the different types of Air Source Heat Pumps?

There are two types of air source heat pumps, monobloc and split.

A monobloc system has all of the components in one outdoor unit, with pipes carrying water to the central heating system and a hot water cylinder inside your home.

A split system separates the components between the indoor and outdoor units.

The selection of a monobloc or split system that is suitable for your needs will be contingent upon your financial constraints and the available space.

Monobloc systems tend to be cheaper and easier to install. They don’t take up as much space inside your home, but they are generally slightly less efficient than split systems. Split systems possess the potential to enhance efficiency due to the fact that some of the heat transfer occurs within the building, where it is warmer, resulting in a reduction in heat loss.

Why choose an Air Source Heat Pump?

There are several benefits of air source heat pumps:

  • Lower your energy bills:¬†depending on how your heat pump is designed and how you use it, you can save money on your energy bills.
  • Reduce your energy use:¬†Unlike conventional boilers that rely on fossil fuels, heat pumps rely on electricity. However, the heat energy delivered to your home is much higher than the electrical energy used to power the system.
  • Cut your carbon emissions: Heat pumps are a low-carbon heating source, meaning that your emissions are lower than if you were using a gas or oil boiler.
