What Is An Air Source Heat Pump?
Air source heat pumps are one of the most efficient and reliable ways to heat or cool your home in Woodbridge. Air source heat pumps work by taking in cooler air and either heating it (in the winter) or cooling it (in the summer). Not only do they help you save money on your electric bill, but they’re also extremely durable and long-lasting, so you won’t have to worry about replacing them anytime soon. There are two types of air source heat pumps:
An Air To Water System
Air to water heat pumps are an effective way to provide cosy warmth throughout your home. These units transfer heat from the atmosphere outside and into a tank of water, which is then circulated through radiators or underfloor heating in order to produce comfortable temperatures inside your house.
Air to Air Heat Pumps
A method where an air-to-air heat pump extracts heat from the outside and transfers it inside your home. It is capable of creating four and a half times more energy than what it took to produce.
Air Source Heat Pumps Installation In Woodbridge
Installing an air source heat pump in your Woodbridge home couldn't be easier. It all depends on the size of your property, really. Bigger properties usually take longer than smaller ones because there's just more ground to cover - but installation usually takes about a week or so (excluding weekends). After we confirm everything with you at the start, one of our qualified installers will register the device with your Distribution Network Operator so they can set up service for it; then they'll turn up at your house and handle everything from there! We'll only need to dig around where we put the unit and make sure there are no obstacles blocking airflow around it. Afterwards, we'll show you how to use all its features and answer any questions you might have about them so you're fully informed about what this means for your home.
Air Source Heat Pump Maintenance and Servicing In Woodbridge
Air source heat pumps need just annual service and should last anywhere from 20-25 years. There is always a two year warranty and they are available as long as 7 year warranties depending on the company. It's best to get an annual check-up with this type of system because if you neglect it, your warranty will expire quickly. An annual service includes
Clean heating system filter
Clean coils and fans (if necessary)
Ensure proper air flow is not impeded by debris (leaves, dust etc.)
Power off the unit and check / clean fan blades.
Inspect filters, ducts, blower and indoor coil for dirt and other obstructions
Measure airflow is correct
Check heating system antifreeze level
Check for leaks

Do Heat Pumps Work With Radiators?
It is commonly believed that heat pumps cannot work with radiators. But this couldn't be further from the truth. Heat pumps can work very well with radiators and even other types of emitters, though this has some conditions to it. For instance, the radiator will need to produce a similar amount of warmth as an ordinary boiler does for it to truly produce enough power for an efficient heating system. If you're curious about how it works or want more information about how rads might affect your own system, check out our blog post on heat pumps & radiators. To know more read our blog on heat pumps and radiators.
Does An Air Source Heat Pump Run All The Time
In order to avoid losing efficiency, make sure that your heat pump is always on. Leaving it turned off while you're out or sleeping will cost more energy since the compressor would need to work much harder to return to the desired temperature after being used for hours. For example, read this article about how an air source heat pump should not be shut off at all times - even during winter time! To know more, read our blog about if an air source heat needs running at all times.
