What is an air source heat pump?
Air source heat pumps extract heat from the air to heat your home and hot water. They can extract heat from temperatures as low as -15°C.
How does an air source heat pump work?
An air source heat pump works by drawing in outside air, which is then used to heat a special refrigerant liquid. As it gets warmer, this liquid turns to gas. The warmth is compressed to increase its temperature as it passes through the heating system in your home, keeping you comfortable and warm. Once the gas has transferred its heat, it cools and becomes liquid again, and returns to the start of the cycle. According to British Gas, the whole air source heat pump process only uses electricity and has an energy efficiency of over 350% – compared to a gas boiler, which is about 90% efficient.
How much does an air source heat pump cost?
Air source heat pumps vary in price, but government grants are available to help you cover the cost of buying and installing one. Once it’s installed, you can call Metro Plumb for ongoing service and repairs, 24/7/365.
What else do I need to know about air source heat pumps?
- Only one air source heat pump is allowed per property according to usual planning permissions. If you want to install another, you need to apply for planning permission.
- The installation of your heat pump must meet the requirements of the Microgeneration Certification Scheme.
- An air source heat pump must be used strictly for heating only.
- It’s essential to regularly maintain your heat pump to ensure compliance with the manufacturer’s warranty and also ensure the product is safe and efficient to use.
