How Does an Air Source Heat Pump Work?


Air source heat pumps are capable of extracting heat from the air even when the outside temperature gets down to as low as minus 15 degrees Celcius. This is achieved by a process of heat exchange and compression to reach the temperatures required for the hot water circuits in your home.

No ground works are necessary for installing this type of equipment and consequently has lower installation cost compared to a ground source heat pump.

As with ground source heat pumps, they are used for heating in the Winter months and cooling the building in the Summer months.

The amount of electricity required to run heat pumps (Air and ground) is between and quarter and a third of the cost of running a conventional boiler.
