What is an Air Source Heat Pump and how does it work?

An Air Source Heat Pump is a heating system that uses energy from the air to generate heat for your home or business.

Air Source Heat Pumps take the heat from the air outside and around your home as their main source of energy. Much like a refrigerator working in reverse, the outside air is blown into a network of pipes filled with a refrigerant. The outside air warms the refrigerant and turns the liquid into a gas which passes through a compressor – increasing the pressure and adding further heat.

The compressed gases then go through a cool air or water surrounded heat exchanger, and warms the surrounding gas or liquid up in the process. This warm air or water is then circulated around the home to heat it, and the warm refrigerant cools and condenses back into liquid and the cycle is repeated.
