What is an Air Source Heat Pump exactly?
Our Cirencester engineers answer your most googled questions about these brilliant devices..
The air source heat pump works a bit like a refrigerator in reverse.
An air source heat pump is usually placed at the side or back of a property. It takes heat from the air and boosts it to a higher temperature using a heat pump.
By optimising the use of renewable technology, for every kilowatt of energy consumed, 3 kilowatts is produced. This means 300% efficiency.
The unit absorbs heat from the outside air and converts it to useable energy which is transferred to your properties heat emitters, and or hot water cylinder.
There are incentive schemes available, if the property passes the necessary requirements.
It is important that your current heating systems are designed to achieve the highest SCOP (seasonal coverage of performance), to make you eligible for the Governments Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme.
If you would like to book a meeting with our Cirencester based specialist to talk you through it, you'll see how much you could potentially save by replacing your existing system with an air source heat pump.
We are also certified by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) which certifies that it is intelligent tech that produces heat from a renewable source.
This is a key requirement when applying for payments from the Governments Renewable Heat Incentive (see below).
