Air source heat pumps (ASHPs) absorb heat from the outside air which is then used to heat radiators, under floor heating systems, or warm air convectors and hot water in your home.
Air Source Heat Pumps are very efficient, for every unit of electricity used to power the pump, 3-4 units of thermal energy are produced and as the heat they extract is taken from the air, the energy source is essentially infinite making air sourced heat pumps a viable alternative to traditionally powered central heating systems.
There are two types of air source heating systems;
Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP’s) will:
In the same way that a fridge uses refrigerant to extract heat from the inside, keeping your food cool, an air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air and uses it to heat your home and hot water. Using established refrigeration technology, air source heat pumps use the heat from the ambient air by compressing it to increase its temperature.
The Renewable Heat Premium Payment is a one-off grant designed to help towards meeting the costs of installing renewable technologies in your home, until the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is introduced for domestic customers. For more information on both the Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) scheme and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) visit.
