What are Heat Pumps
An air source heat pump (ASHP) extracts energy from the outside air, even at the coldest time of the year, to provide heat inside the home and is classed as a renewable system.
An ASHP system will typically provide more than three times the amount of heat for each unit of electricity used to power it. This heat is delivered into the home via new radiators and a hot water system.
The ASHP is an external unit, usually located to the rear or side of the property. They take energy held within the outside air which is run through a compression circuit before releasing this as heat into the home.
The principle of the ASHP has been in use for many years, they actually work in a similar way to a refrigerator but in reverse.
An ASHP can provide an efficient whole house heat solution as an alternative to more traditional heating systems in existing homes.
