What is an Air Source Heat Pump?

An Air Source Heat Pump transfers heat from the outside air to water which heats your rooms via radaitors underfloor heating. It can also heat water stored in a hot water cylinder for your hot taps, baths and showers.

Heat from the air is absorbed into a fluid. This fluid then passes through a heat exchanger into the heat pump which raises the temperature and then trasnsfer that heat to water. Air source heat pumps are suitable for many types of homes and are the most common type of domestic heat pump with tens of thousands of installtions already carried out across the UK.

Running costs will depend on how your heat pump is designed and operated and savings on your energy bills will depend on the system you are replacing.
