Air source heat pumps use less energy than the heat they create. This means that they’re a fantastic solution to rising energy bills, and a great way to help the environment.
The idea that something can create more than it requires to run is both impressive and mysterious. So you’re probably wondering how something like this could work.
As a result, we’ve created a guide to help explain the process, and technology and go into a bit more detail about the benefits it provides.
What Are Air Source Heat Pumps?
An air source heat pump is recognised by its noticeably large fan. It’s an efficient and more sustainable source of heating than your typical gas boiler and is always found externally. The pump is attached to the outside of your house and connects to the pipes and necessary services inside your home to provide hot water and heat. It needs to be attached externally in order to function properly.
How Do They Work?
Air source heat pumps work by removing warm air from outside your property. It’s turned to liquid form and compressed within to increase the temperature.
The electricity required to power it is less than the heat it produces. Furthermore, it can even function in conditions as low as -15 degrees °C. As a result, you can sustainably heat your home all year round in the UK without the requirement of a traditional boiler.
The Benefits Of Installing Air Source Heat Pumps
There are so many benefits to including an air source heat pump within your home. If you’re interested in installing one yourself, then our staff at Carbon Saving Group can answer any questions you have and conduct a survey within your home to advise on placement and efficiency.
The cost of a traditional boiler means a constant source of gas which, in recent years, has risen dramatically in price. The technology behind air source heat pumps means that very little energy is required to output a massive amount of heat. This means you’ll be spending much less each month on energy bills
The whole idea of a carbon-neutral society is to create more than we use. By using air source heat pumps, you’re making so much more energy through the heat produced, than the electricity required to produce it. Not only this but with other government schemes, the energy used to power your pump could even be from another renewable source, such as wind power.
Fundable Through Grants
As if there weren’t enough reasons to install an air source heat pump, you can even get it at minimum cost. With the Boiler Upgrade Scheme, you could be provided with a grant from the government to fund your new installation. Not only will your bills be reduced, but they will barely cost anything to fit.
