Air Source Heat Pumps | South West Heat Pumps

Air source heat pumps.

Heat your home with an air source heat pump.

Air source heat pumps can work with a combination of radiators and underfloor heating and can provide 100% of the heating and hot water requirements for your home.

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 require electricity to work but output more power than they use making them an efficient heat source.  The amount of power they output is determined by the manufacturers SCOP and our team can provide you with a detailed running cost estimate vs fossil fuel systems to inform your decision to make the switch to renewable heating.

Advantages of air source heat pumps.
