What Is An Air Source Heat pump

What is an Air Source Pump?

An Air Source Heat Pump is a unit that will be located outside of the property. It takes air in through the pump and boosts it to a higher temperature. The Heat pump does use electricity to power the unit but will use less electricity to power the Heat Pump than the heat it will provide for your property. On average every unit of electricity the Heat pump uses for power it will generate 2-3 units of heat and typical running costs are £400 to £500 per year, a considerable saving on gas, oil or fuel heating systems.

An air source heat pump works a little bit like a refrigerator by utilising the heat exchange as gasses are compressed, but a heat pump captures heat instead of retaining the cooling (you’ve probably noticed warm air around your fridge!)
