Air-to-Air Heating

Air to air heat pumps can provide not only heating to your home but cooling properties also. Some units come with air purification filters which are ideal for allergy sufferers. The units extract the heat in the air outside, convert it to heat by using the refridgerant within the unit and provides warm air to your property via the internal unit. Used in reverse, it also cools your property as required. It works in a similar way to how a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It is able to pick up heat from the air even when temperatures are as low as -15C.

Why consider an air source heat pump?
There are numerous potential benefits to choosing an air source heat pump to support the heating in your home. For example, they could lower your fuel bills, particularly if you are using it to replace conventional electric heating. The Energy Saving Trust estimates that air source heat pumps running at 300 per cent could potentially save money in the region of £130 a year on gas bills; and as much as £610 a year on electricity bills. In addition, you could save energy too – massively reducing your carbon dioxide output. You may also benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive, a government incentive offered in Scotland.

Is this form of renewable energy the right choice for you?
Before investing in an air source heat pump, consider what system it is replacing – heat pumps will pay for themselves more quickly when replacing electricity and coal systems rather than gas systems. Also ensure that you have somewhere suitable for the installers to put it – ideally with plenty of space and on a sunny wall; and that your home is well insulated.
