What is an Air to Water Heat Pump?
An Air to Water Heat Pump works on the principle of transferring energy contained in the outside air to heat the water in the home.
This process is carried out using refrigeration technology and the system comprises of a single low noise outdoor unit attached to underfloor heating, radiators or fan coil units.
This water is heated and the energy is transferred to heat emitters, whilst also heating your domestic hot water.
Low Carbon footprint
Air Source Heat Pumps are a form of low carbon heating as they use the energy contained in outside air to heat your home, for every unit of electricity used to power the system they produce 3-4 kw of heating compared to fossil fuel systems which are 90% efficient at best. Due to the high efficiency of these systems they make a great alternative to conventional fossil fuel or direct electric systems considerably lowering the homes carbon footprint.
