What is an air source heat pump?
Air source heat pumps extract thermal energy (heat) from the outside air and convert this into heating and hot water for your home. Air source heat pumps are capable of working in cold temperatures and are suitable for a range of homes, from a small apartment* to a large detached home. Air source heat pumps do require electricity to operate, but 75% of the energy required is generated from the outside air, with only 25% being required from electricity. This means that 75% of the energy you use will be from a renewable source, which will reduce your emissions and CO2 impact.
Air source heat pumps will be installed outside your property and are very quiet during operation.
*air source heat pumps need to be located outside and require a solid base to sit on or structurally secure wall to be mounted to, in order to be installed.
