Air Source Heat Pumps

Providing a clean source of hot water and heating for your new home

What Are Air Source Heat Pumps?

Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) are an innovative and eco-friendly heating solution that extracts heat from the outside air and uses it to warm your home. Even when the temperature outside is low, ASHPs can effectively capture heat and transfer it indoors, providing a consistent and efficient heating source.

How Do Air Source Heat Pumps Work?

The operation of an ASHP involves several key steps:

  1. Heat Absorption: The ASHP absorbs heat from the outside air through a fluid that evaporates into a gas. This process occurs even in cold weather.
  2. Compression: The gaseous fluid is compressed, which increases its temperature significantly.
  3. Heat Transfer: The heated gas passes through a heat exchanger, releasing its heat to the home’s heating system, which can be used for both space heating and hot water.
  4. Expansion and Repetition: The gas is then expanded back to its original state, ready to absorb more heat from the outside air, and the cycle repeats.

Why Are Air Source Heat Pumps Vital for New Homes?

  1. Energy Efficiency: ASHPs are highly efficient, often delivering three times more heat energy to a home than the electrical energy they consume. This efficiency reduces energy consumption and lowers utility bills.
  2. Reduced Carbon Footprint: By using renewable energy from the air, ASHPs significantly cut down on greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional heating systems like oil or gas boilers. This aligns perfectly with our commitment to building sustainably.
  3. Cost Savings: Although the initial installation cost of an ASHP can be higher than traditional heating systems, the long-term savings on energy bills and potential government incentives make them a cost-effective option over time.
  4. Versatility and Low Maintenance: ASHPs can be used for both heating and cooling, providing year-round comfort. They also require minimal maintenance compared to other heating systems, ensuring reliability and longevity.
  5. Compatibility with Modern Building Standards: ASHPs are well-suited for integration with modern, energy-efficient building designs. They work effectively with underfloor heating and low-temperature radiators, which are often used in new homes to maximize energy efficiency.
