How Do Air Source Heat Pumps Work?

Air source heat pumps (ASHPs) are a highly efficient and environmentally friendly heating and cooling solution that works by transferring heat from the outside air into your home for heating. They can also work in reverse during the warmer months to cool your home. The process involves several key components and steps:

  1. Extraction of Outside Air: The ASHP system starts with an outdoor unit that contains a fan, which draws outside air over a heat exchanger coil.
  2. Refrigerant Cycle: Within the heat exchanger coil there is a refrigerant. This fluid has a very low boiling point. As the outside air passes over the coil, the refrigerant absorbs the ambient heat and evaporates, turning from a low-temperature liquid into a gas.
  3. Compression: The refrigerant then passes into a compressor, which increases its pressure, causing it to heat up significantly.
  4. Heat Transfer to Indoor Space: This high-temperature gas flows through another heat exchanger (inside the building), where it transfers its heat to the indoor air or water (in the case of radiators or underfloor heating systems) circulating through the building’s heating system. As it releases its heat, the refrigerant condenses back into a liquid.
  5. Expansion and Cooling: The liquid refrigerant then passes through an expansion valve, reducing its pressure and cooling it down before it returns to the outdoor heat exchanger coil to absorb more heat from the outside air, and the cycle repeats.
  6. Reverse Operation for Cooling: In systems designed for both heating and cooling (reversible ASHPs), the process can be reversed during warmer months to absorb heat from the indoor air and release it outside, cooling your home.

Air source heat pumps produce up to 3 to 4 times more heat energy per unit of electricity they consume, making them an energy-efficient alternative to traditional fossil fuel-based heating systems. This efficiency, coupled with the use of electricity (which can be generated from renewable sources such as solar PV), makes ASHPs an environmentally friendly option for heating and cooling your home.

Frequently Asked Questions (Air Source Heat Pumps FAQ’s)

Q1: Why should I consider an air source heat pump for my home? A: ASHP’s are a sustainable and efficient alternative to traditional heating systems. They use less energy, reduce your carbon footprint, and can significantly lower your energy bills. With our expertise, we can help you choose the perfect system for your home.

Q2: What is an air source heat pump (ASHP)? A: They are an eco-friendly heating and cooling system that extracts heat from the outside air, even in cold weather, to heat your home and hot water. In warmer months, it can reverse the process to cool your home.

Q3: Do they work in cold climates? A: Yes, modern ASHP’s are designed to operate effectively even in cold climates. They can extract heat from the air at temperatures as low as -20°C, making them suitable for year-round heating.

Q4: What maintenance do they require? A: Air source heat pumps require minimal maintenance, typically just an annual check by a professional and some basic homeowner upkeep, like keeping the outdoor unit clear of debris.

Q5: Will an air source heat pump work with my existing radiators? A: In many cases, yes, but it may depend on the size and efficiency of your existing radiators. A free assessment by our engineers can determine if your current system is compatible or if any modifications are needed.
