What are Air Source Heat Pumps?

Electrical air source heat pumps (ASHPs) use a process called heat transfer to pass energy from the outside air into your home, office or other building of choice. Once the energy has been extracted and amplifed from the outside air, it is then passed into your central heating system which circulates around your building. Our air source heat pump solutions in Kent can deliver up to three times the heat output for every unit of electricity consumed, which is perfect for reducing your energy bills.

Do Heat Pumps Work in the Winter?

Believe it or not, the working temperature for Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) are anywhere between -10℃ & -20℃. Heat pumps are still able to extract energy from the air when the weather outside is below freezing point.

How Do Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) Work?

In simple terms, this eco-friendly electrical device extracts energy from the outside air then transfers it to your central heating system in your building. Free solar energy from the ambient air is collected and passed into a heat exchanger coil, which operates on the refrigeration cycle using a compressor, condenser, expansion valve and evaporator. Compression is used to increase the pressure and temperature. This high-temperature is then released and distributed through the building's heating system.

Legal Requirements for ASHPs

Fitting air source heat pumps (ASHPs) do not require loads of construction work whereas ground source heat pumps do. Installing an air source heat pump (ASHP) does not require much space at all, however, you must remember that it must be fitted one meter or more from the neighbour's property, this is a legal requirement in England and Scotland (Wales is 2m).
