In short, ASHPs work by transferring air from one place to another. Heat from the air is gathered up and taken into a loop of refrigerant fluid, followed by being transferred to a compressor, providing you with hot air.
The pump is extremely clever and will transfer all this heat through different pipes, whether this being multiple radiators throughout your home or underfloor heating.
The air source heat pump is not just for heating up your home either, during the warmer months your pump will grab onto heat in the air within your home and release it back outside, leaving you with cooler summer months and warmer winter nights.
The Green Energy Grant enables you to receive payments for generating your own heat through the Renewable Heat Incentive. This scheme has been extended until March 2022, meaning that if you have your heat pump installed during this period, you could be eligible to receive payments for each unit installed for a period of time. These payments are calculated via the Renewable Heat Incentive tariffs.
The ASHP is much easier to install than the Ground Source Heat Pump as, unlike the GSHP, no digging is required. As a result of this, the installation process is much simpler and often quicker.
To begin with, your home must already be well insulated. Air Source Heat Pumps typically have a lower heat supply than boilers, therefore an already well-insulated home will work best.
Smaller properties are ideal for this pump, however, space must be available for the external unit. If you live within a larger property, more external units can be installed, however, this will have an overall effect on the costs.
Compared to a gas or electric heating system, an air source heat pump is a renewable alternative to heating your home; lessening your carbon footprint and allowing you to save money on your utility bills.
