Air source heat pumps are a eco-friendly power source that extracts heat from the air outside your building in order to provide you with heating inside. They work by transferring heat from the air over a refrigerant fluid, which is then passed through a compressor which heats it even further, accompanied by a condensor which releases the heat into your home.
Air source heat pumps come in two varieties. They can be either air to air heat pumps which absorb heat from the outside air and pass it to your house via a fan system or air vent underfloor heating. The other alternative is air to water heat pumps, which absorb heat and use it to heat water, which can be used to provide hot water heating through central heating and radiators.
Air source heat pumps use electricity to run, but they are extremely efficient and make use of naturally occuring renewable heat in the air. They can also be coupled with green electricity generation to further reduce their carbon impact. Putting in an air source heat pump will permit you to benefit from the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive, which will give you money for the heat that you produce. This means that the air source heat pump systems can save you money and pay for themselves as time passes.
