  • Air Source Heat pumps

    Air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, or warm air convectors or a combination of all three as well as providing hot water.
    An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the  temperature is as low as -15° C. Heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the ground, air, or water is constantly being renewed naturally. Heat pumps combined with solar PV (solar photovoltaics) are a good combination as the free electricity generated can be used to help power the heat pump thus lowering your energy costs and CO2 emissions further.
