• Air source heating pumps can reduce your fuel bills
• Cheaper than electric heating
• Energy efficient
Before investing in an air source heat pump, consider what system it is replacing – heat pumps will pay for themselves more quickly when replacing electricity and coal systems rather than gas systems. Also ensure that you have somewhere suitable for the installers to put it – ideally with plenty of space and on a sunny wall; and that your home is well insulated.
Air source heat pumps or ASHP use vapour compression refrigeration to absorb heat from the air which can be then used to heat your home.
ASHP or air source heat pump when used in domestic heating simply extracts the warm air from outside and compresses it using VCR or vapour compression refrigeration which then pumps it in to the home as hot water in radiators, or hot water taps as well as hot air.
One of the most unique benefits of air source heat pumps is that it can also be reversed to cool the home during the hotter summer months.
There are numerous potential benefits to choosing an air source heat pump to support the heating in your home. For example, they could lower your fuel bills, particularly if you are using it to replace conventional electric heating. The Energy Saving Trust estimates that air source heat pumps running at 300 per cent could potentially save money in the region of £130 a year on gas bills; and as much as £610 a year on electricity bills. In addition, you could save energy too – massively reducing your carbon dioxide output. You may also benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive, a government incentive offered in Scotland.
