How Do Air Source Heat Pumps Work?

Air source heat pumps (ASHPs) offer a sustainable solution for both heating and cooling your home, using the ambient air temperature outside. They are an eco-friendly alternative that can significantly reduce your home’s carbon footprint and energy costs. Here’s how they work:

Air Extraction: The system’s outdoor unit uses a fan to draw external air across a heat exchanger coil, initiating the heat transfer process.

Refrigerant Cycle: The coil houses a refrigerant with a low boiling point. As air flows over the coil, it warms the refrigerant, causing it to evaporate and transform from a liquid to a gas.

Compression: This gas refrigerant then enters a compressor, where its pressure and temperature are increased.

Indoor Heat Transfer: The heated gas moves through an indoor heat exchanger, releasing its heat to the air or water within the home’s heating system, such as radiators or underfloor heating. This process causes the refrigerant to cool and revert to a liquid form.

Expansion And Cooling: The refrigerant passes through an expansion valve, decreasing its pressure and temperature, preparing it to re-enter the outdoor coil and absorb more heat from the outside air. This cycle repeats, providing continuous heating.

Cooling Mode: In reversible ASHP systems, this process can be inverted during warmer months to extract heat from indoors and expel it outside, effectively cooling your home.

ASHPs are incredibly efficient, producing 3 to 4 times more heat energy for every unit of electricity used. Their ability to run on electricity which can be sourced from renewable energy solutions like solar PV further enhances their green credentials.
