How Do Air Source Heat Pumps Work?
Air source heat pumps are classified as a renewable energy technology and work by extracting the warmth from the air outside (even when it’s freezing) and use it to heat your home. There are other heat pumps that do the same thing by using the warmth in the ground and in water – but air source heat pumps are more popular as they are suitable for a wider range of properties.
These units can be classed as renewable due to the air (or obviously ground, or water) being heated by the sun, even though the pump itself is powered by electricity and can offer cheaper energy to households.
There are two types of air source heat pump. Air-to-water systems are the most common and they work by heating water which is then circulated around the home via radiators or an underfloor heating system. Water in a storage tank for the bathroom or kitchen can also be heated in this way. Air-to-air systems typically use fans to circulate warm air around the home and cannot be used to heat water.
