Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP)
Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) heat your house from the air outside. It may sound counter intuitive, but just as a fridge extracts heat from the inside using in reverse refridgeration process. ASHP provide effective heating, working to temperatures as low as -15°C (outside).
Depending on system configuration an ASHP can offer a full central heating solution and provide domestic hot water.
This renewable heating technology works well with underfloor heating.
How does it work?
Air source heat pumps (also known as ASHPs) use a natural source of heat – air – to produce energy.
They absorb warmth from the outside air and convert it into heat.
Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP)
The Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) is a low cost, low energy consuming and high warmth renewable heating system. Heat Pumps can be the most efficient way of providing all of your domestic or industrial building’s heating needs including hot water, while simultaneously saving you money and significantly decreasing carbon emissions.
How does it work?
Ground Source Heat Pumps (also known as GSHPs) use a natural source of heat from the ground to produce energy.
Using a limited amount of electricity, residual heat is converted into higher temperatures using a vapour compression cycle. This is then transferred to heating and hot water systems to produce a consistent and reliable warmth throughout your house.
CHANGE THE WAY YOU HEAT YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS
Heat pumps do use electricity but by using the heat that they extract from the ground, air, or water (that is constantly being renewed naturally). Heat Pumps achieve relatively high COP’s (Coefficient of Performance) and they can be very cost effective.
