Heat your home with an Air Source Heat Pump
How Air Source Heat Pumps Work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the air around us and if installed correctly can heat our homes when the outside temperature is as low as -15C. Working like a fridge, but in reverse, they do require some electric to produce heat, but for every unit of electric they use, they can produce up to 4.35 units of heat – so that’s up to 3.35 units of free heat for your home.
Advantages of Air Source Heat Pumps
- Cheap – lowest capital cost of all renewable heat pumps.
- Efficient – heat your home and hot water with minimal wasted energy.
