Air Source Heat pumps operate by transferring heat from one environment to another via a refrigerant circuit. Air Source Heat pumps (ASHP) offer a significantly reduced capital expenditure investment in comparison to ground source heat pumps (GSHP). This provides for a cost-effective heating/cooling solution, recognised as a renewable heat technology.
In cooling mode, heat pumps work by transferring the heat from a room or internal space to the outside air, thus cooling the inside area. In reverse, heat pumps can extract latent heat from the outside air (even when the temperature outside is down to -20°C) and pump it inside to heat indoor spaces.
ASHPs operate at a seasonal efficiency of 270% upwards. This means that for every unit of energy used by the heat pump in operation, 2.7 or more units of heat/coolth are generated for use in a building.
As ASHPs work by extracting available heat from the outside air, they are far more efficient than even the most efficient fossil-fuel based heating systems.
Using an integrated heat pump solution to both cool and heat a building can also mean a lower initial investment, as well as simpler operation and maintenance procedures.
