Air Source Heat Pumps

What are Air Source Heat Pumps? 

Air source heat pumps are not only a cost-effective and ecologically responsible way to heat your house, but they are also the ideal answer for generating your own heat, saving money on energy bills, and being environmentally friendly. 

They're normally positioned on the side or the back of the house. They are known for absorbing heat from the environment and transferring it to the heat pump. Air-to-water heat pumps and air-to-air heat pumps are the two main types of heat pumps that can be installed.

1) Air-Air Heat Pumps 

The biggest disadvantage of this type of heat pump is that it does not have the ability to generate hot water. It works by capturing heat from the outside and distributing it around your home via fans. 

2) Air-to-Water Heat Pumps

This heat pump extracts heat from the outside air and distributes it to a wet central heating system. Because the heat produced by this pump is cooler than that produced by a boiler, you should consider installing larger radiators throughout your home to get the most out of it.

Air Source Heat Pumps Have a Lot of Benefits 

There are numerous advantages to using air source heat pumps. DC Heating & Plumbing has compiled a list of a few of them to assist you in making your choice!

 Reduces CO2 Emissions 

Even though they utilise a small amount of electricity, as compared to gas boilers, they do not emit carbon. This can be further decreased if solar panels are added to assist with the production of electricity. Air source heat pumps have a 300 per cent efficiency rating, which means they use less energy to produce heat than traditional boilers, which have a 90 per cent efficiency rating.

 Operates all year

Because of the cold, many people believe that air source heat pumps do not work in the winter. Air source heat pumps, in fact, can function at temperatures as low as -15°C. Allowing them to function all year, so you can relax knowing that you'll always have hot water and heat!

 Easily maintained  

You won't have to worry about keeping your air source heat pump running because it requires very little maintenance. We also recommend that you have your appliance serviced once a year to ensure that it is safe to use.

 Air Source Heat Pumps can be used for both Heating & Cooling

Air source heat pumps can be used to heat and cool your home. They can give cooling in the summer and heating in the winter, depending on the model. All you need to do is ensure that the COP of your air source heat pump is greater than 0.7 for cooling.

Is an Air Source Heat Pump right for me?

An Air Source Heat Pump can be installed in a variety of properties, large or small, rural or urban. If you are considering installing an air source heat pump, consider the following:

 You're seeking a low-carbon, environmentally friendly, and long-lasting way to heat your home.

 The property is well-insulated, which is vital for efficiency and lowering operating expenses. 

 There is insufficient outside space for a ground source heat pump, which normally requires three times the entire floor area of the property. All you need for an Air Source Heat Pump is space for the device to be mounted on an exterior wall, with enough space around it to allow for a good flow of air.

You are installing or have an existing underfloor heating system. Because they are most efficient when producing low water temperatures, air-source heat pumps perform particularly well with underfloor heating.

A heat pump's energy-saving capabilities can help both new and existing properties.

Recoup your investment with the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive(RHI)

According to the recently revealed government scheme RHI, you may be entitled to quarterly payments. This scheme aims to expand the use of renewable heating solutions in homes across the United Kingdom.

How do you know if you're eligible for RHI? 

Choosing an MCS approved renewable solution and obtaining an energy performance certificate (EPC) for your home are two elements that determine whether you are eligible for RHI. It should also be noted that new builds are excluded from receiving an RHI benefit.  

The heat demand mentioned on the EPC, system efficiency, and tariff rate are all used to determine the RHI benefit. Your home and chosen renewable heating solution are eligible for RHI payments for the first seven years after installation.

How much money could you earn back using RHI? 

The amount you get back depends on your heat demand, the effectiveness of your system, and your home's tariff rate. The quarterly payments offered by RHI can help you earn a significant amount of money. You can use the Renewable Heat Incentive Calculator on website to see how much you could earn back with RHI.
