7 benefits of having an Air Source Heat Pump in your home

When your old heating system has run its course, it can feel a bit daunting to choose between the many modern heating systems available. Due to major advancements in technology over the years, there are now more options than ever.

This is especially true when it comes to environmentally friendly options, such as the ‘Air Source Heat Pump’. There are two types of ASHPs: air-to-water, the most common of the two, and air-to-air.
Air-to-water heat pumps, put simply, work by sucking in heat from the outside air, which heats a liquid refrigerant. An electric heat pump compresses the liquid, raising the temperature and then condensing it back into a liquid.

This process releases the heat from the refrigerant, which can then be stored and used to heat radiators, underfloor heating, or stored in a cylinder for use in showers, baths, and taps.
As specialist Air source heat pump installers, the team here at Thrift Energy have put together 7 benefits of having an air source heat pump in your home.

Energy efficient

Though an air source heat pump needs electricity to run, it usually uses less energy than what it produces. This makes it an extremely energy efficient heating solution.

Helps your carbon footprint

Conventional heating systems produce a fair amount of carbon dioxide. However, air source heat pumps can use a lot less, lowering your carbon footprint.

Can run on renewable electricity

Air source heat pumps need electricity to run, which unfortunately means it is not a carbon free option. However, when used with wind or solar power, it is possible to make the system carbon neutral.
This can save you money

Air source heat pumps can be a little pricey to begin with, but they are an investment. As they are so energy efficient, they can reduce your energy bills drastically.

Air conditioning
Some air source heat pumps, especially air-to-air systems, can not only be used to heat your house during the winter but can also cool your house down during the summer.

Renewable Heat Incentive

The Renewable Heat Incentive scheme is run by the UK Government to subsidise the installation of environmentally friendly heating options. If your application is successful, you can receive quarterly payments for seven years just by installing renewable heating.

Easy installation
Any air source heat pump installer will tell you that these systems are very simple to install. Installations are easy and cause as little disruption as possible to your day-to-day life.
