Air Source Heat Pumps Work?
Air source pumps work by initially extracting heat from the ambient air, for this reason it is best to situate the unit in a location, outdoors that benefits from a free flow of air. Of course, our engineers will always take the time to ensure your unit is fitted in an optimal position.
The process begins with ambient air being pulled into the system, whilst refrigerant is circulated through an evaporator. It is then passed through to a compressor, raising the temperature of the refrigerant and turning the liquid refrigerant to gas.
The hot gas is then passed through a condenser where the heat is passed onto water, and fed into your heating or hot water system.
Once the heat has been removed the hot gas turns back into a liquid to start the cycle again!
