Air source heat pumps use the same principle as a refrigerator in reverse; to absorb heat from one place and release it at another. Although the underlying technology is not new, the application of air source heat pumps is still underutilised.
The ambient air temperature in the UK, even in winter, is high enough that heat can be extracted from the air, compressed and used to heat air or water inside a building.
Air source heat pumps consume some electricity in their operation, but the net energy saving when compared to a traditional gas or electric heating solution is significant as the outdoor air is an infinitely renewable energy resource.
Air source heat pumps are available under the Ensitic ‘ZERO COST’ energy saving scheme. We can source and install heat pump solutions on your site for no cost, sharing the resulting energy cost savings.
