What is an air source heat pump?

Air source heat pumps are an air conditioning unit that has the benefit of producing heat throughout the winter, using the the external temperature to extract heat and are the most common type of heat pumps.

Suitable for any home, outbuilding, office space, even apartments and flat situations off the ground.

Some electricity energy is required to allow this though it is only around 25% of the total energy used during the process.

Air source heat pumps will operate in low temperatures too.

Why choose an air source heat pump?

The main advantage of an air source heat pump is that they safeguard homeowners against fluctuations in energy prices.

Heat pumps use the environment to generate 75% of the heating for your home.

As an added benefit, it can also act as an air cooler during the warmer summer months, improving your comfort and purification to the air in your home.

Good news from 1st April 2022 

To encourage homeowners and business owners to have energy saving materials such as heat pumps zero rated VAT applies to the installation of energy saving heating.

  • Maximise efficiency: Your air conditioner loses approximately 5% of its efficiency every year if it goes without servicing. Regular maintenance will ensure your unit can remain at peak performance, giving you quicker cooling and heating and more efficient power consumption.
  • Lengthen lifespan: Your air conditioner is a mechanical device and like any mechanical device, its parts will wear out over time. Blockages can occur and parts may need to be replaced. With regular servicing you can double the lifespan of your air conditioner.
  • Save on electricity costs: A poorly maintained unit will have diminished efficiency and cost you more in electricity costs. By regularly servicing your air conditioner, you can save up to 25% on your electricity bill.
  • Improve air quality: Your air conditioner keeps your environment comfortable by controlling humidity and regulating air quality. If regular maintenance is neglected, air quality will suffer and this can lead to associated health risks.
  • Maintain warranty: Most air conditioning manufacturers offer an extended warranty on all new units providing they are serviced regularly from the date of installation. If you neglect to service your air conditioner, you will render your extended warranty null and void.
