Air source heat pumps are a great way to save money and reduce your carbon print. Not only could an air source heat pump help you avoid the rising cost of energy, you could also earn money to help pay the cost of installing one. Air source heat pumps are a system that absorbs heat from the outside air, this heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems and provide hot water in your home.
What Is An Air Source Heat Pump?
Air source heat pumps work by absorbing heat from the outside air to heat your home and water - they’re a great low-carbon way of heating your home. Heat can still be extracted when air temperatures are as low as - 25°C. An air-source pump is highly efficient as even though it needs electricity to run, it typically uses less electrical energy than the heat it produces, therefore making it very energy efficient - a greener equivalent to traditional boiler heating systems
There Are Two Main Types Of Air Source Heat Pump Systems:
An Air To Water System
Air to water heat pumps take heat from the outside and transfer it to water, which is then fed into your wet central heating system. The heat which is then created via the air to water heat pump can be used to heat up radiators, underfloor heating, and as a hot water supply for your home.
Air to Air Heat Pumps
Air to air to heat pumps takes air from the outside via a compressor and the heat is then extracted from the air and pumped to the house. Air to air heat pumps can also cool your house in the summer months. This method of heating is very efficient as it can generate up to 4.5 times the energy which it consumes.
Air Source Heat Pumps Installation
When it comes to how long it takes to install an air source heat pump, it all depends on the size of your property. The bigger the property the longer it will take but typically the installation takes around a week. Firstly, you will need to register the energy device with your Distribution Network Operator, who is responsible for bringing electricity to your home. One of our qualified installers will do that for you.
Once registered, we’ll turn up with all the required equipment to complete the job efficiently and we’ll also leave your garden how we’ve found it - clean! No external digging outside your property will be required but the air source heat pump unit will need to be located somewhere outside your property with good airflow. Once the air source heat pump has been installed, we’ll test the new heating system and we’ll explain to you how it works and all the controls. We’ll also answer any questions you may have for you to get the most out of your air source heat pump
The Benefits Of A Heat Pump
Heat pumps have a wide range of benefits, from reducing your carbon footprint to potentially saving money on your energy bills. Discover how a heat pump could benefit you:
Energy-efficient, reducing your carbon footprint
Air to water heat pumps automatically qualify you for the Renewable Heat Incentive Grant, meaning you could receive a cash payment every year quarterly
Save money compared to a regular heating system
Generate more energy than the electricity which is consumed to operate
Can be used for heating and cooling
Low maintenance costs
VAT on heat pumps installations has been cut from 5% to zero, for five years from April 1st 2022.
Do Heat Pumps Work With Radiators?
It is a common misconception that heat pumps only work with underfloor heating. Homeowners are getting concerned about the output temperature they can reach to find out if a heat pump will work with their radiators. The answer is yes. Heat pumps can work with radiators. They can work well on any emitter system. The radiators will have to be sized correctly so they can distribute the same quantity of heat as a regular boiler. To know more read our blog on heat pumps and radiators.
Does An Air Source Heat Pump Run All The Time
It is advised that heat pumps should never be switched off entirely. This is because air source heat pumps operate most effectively when retaining a steady temperature. You will use more energy turning a heat pump down when you are away or asleep rather than leaving it on. This is because a heating pump has to work harder to come back to the desired temperature than it does to sustain it. To know more, read our blog about if an air source heat needs running at all times.
