These Pumps extract heat energy from the air using compressor technology and feed it into your wet central heating system.
ASHP are able to convert air temperatures to generate sufficient heat energy to heat a home. Heat pumps are excellent alternatives to oil, solid fuel, electrical or Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) central heating systems.
An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can extract heat from the air even when the outside temperature is as low as minus 15° C.
Unlike gas or oil boilers, heat pumps deliver heat at lower temperatures over much longer periods. This means that during the winter they may need to be left on 24/7 to heat your home efficiently. It also means that radiators should never feel as hot to the touch as they would do when using a gas or oil boiler.
