Air source heat pumps are a tried and tested heating system that have been in use across Europe for years. Their innovative method of absorbing existing heat allows for significant savings on energy costs, as the absorbed heat can be used to fuel radiators, underfloor heating, warm air convectors and hot water in your home.
The one important aspect when it comes to the efficiency of heat pumps is the fact that rather than actually generating heat, they simply transfer heat from the external environment, and vice versa. By utilising heat that is already present, a heat pump can be used to heat or cool a property in an effective and highly efficient way.
Heat pumps are highly reliable, and they continue to perform optimally in temperatures as low as -20 degrees Celsius. Whilst they do require electricity to run, they can provide almost 4-5 times the amount of heat energy than the electrical energy they consume, offering huge levels of efficiency. In comparison to a combustion fuel-fired or electric heat pump, an air source heat pump system proves to be much more economical. Adding a solar power electricity source can further increase its cost effectiveness and make it much more environmentally friendly.
The Government is keen to encourage the use of heat pump systems in order to reduce the country’s carbon footprint, and the Renewable Heat Incentive offers the opportunity to benefit financially simply by using your heat pump.
