How do Heat Pumps Work
Heat from the air is absorbed at low temperature into a fluid. This fluid then passes through a compressor where its temperature is increased, and transfers its higher temperature heat to the heating and hot water circuits of the house.
Is an air source heat pump suitable for me?
To tell if an air source heat pump is right for you, there are a few key questions to consider:
Do you have somewhere to put it? You'll need a place outside your home where a unit can be fitted to a wall or placed on the ground. It will need plenty of space around it to get a good flow of air.
Is your home well insulated? Since air source heat pumps work best when producing heat at a lower temperature than traditional boilers, it's essential that your home is insulated and draught-proofed well for the heating system to be effective.
What fuel will you be replacing? The system will pay for itself much more quickly if it's replacing an electricity or coal heating system.
What type of heating system will you use? Air source heat pumps can perform better with underfloor heating system than with radiator-based systems because of the lower water temperatures required.
Ofgem have announced an increase in the tariffs payable for Air & Ground source heat pumps, and Biomass boilers from April 2017.
