What are Air Source Heat Pumps


Air Source Heat Pumps essentially move heat from one area to another. Using electricity to operate, they extract heat from the outside air, which causes a refrigerant liquid to boil and turn to gas. The heat pump then compresses that gas and uses the warmth it creates to heat your buildings and provide hot water.

They work best when the difference between the inside and outside temperatures is minimal. Think of them in a similar way to your fridge. In warmer weather your fridge has to work harder to keep cool. Air Source heat pumps operate in the same way but in reverse. This makes them a good fit for underfloor heating systems. Floors cover a much larger area than radiators, so don’t need to get as hot to provide the same amount of heat.

Why choose it


Low maintenance costs and long service life are just two factors that make Air Source Heat Pumps worth considering. They also help to reduce your gas consumption, making you less reliant on the fossil fuels and lowering your utility bills.

When coupled with a renewable generator (wind or solar) they are a great option for your business if you are looking to reduce your carbon footprint to meet net zero goals, boost your green initiatives or demonstrate your Corporate Social Responsibility.


The Process


The first steps would be to have an initial conversion to establish your needs and aspirations. We would then do a site audit, which would involve visiting the premises, assessing your gas usage patterns, insulation of buildings and the surface area of your rooms in order to tailor a system as efficient as possible in order to meet your energy demands. A full proposal will be put together and sent across to you. This should contain everything you need to decide. We can then review this proposal with you and undertake any negotiations. If you decide to go ahead, we will be able to support you through the project and answer any queries you have.
