How does a Heat Pump Work?

An air source heat pump works by extracting heat from outside air, using a refrigeration cycle.
First, the outdoor unit absorbs heat, even in cold weather outside (e.g., -20 Celsius). Then, the refrigerant evaporates, absorbing this ambient heat. Next, the compressor increases the heat's temperature through compression. Finally, the high-temperature refrigerant is sent indoors, releasing the stored heat. This heat warms the interior space or heats the water.
The refrigerant, now cool, goes back outside, starting the cycle again, and providing an energy-efficient heating solution.

Air Source Heat Pump Grants - Amazing Energy Savers

Air Source Heat Pumps stand out as exemplary energy-saving solutions in the realm of heating systems. Leveraging the ambient air's renewable heat, ASHPs efficiently transfer warmth indoors during winter and provide cooling in summer. Unlike traditional heating methods, ASHPs require less electricity to operate, making them environmentally friendly and cost-effective. By extracting heat from the air, even in colder temperatures, ASHPs offer consistent performance, contributing to reduced energy consumption and lower utility bills. Their versatility and adaptability make them a sustainable choice for UK Households, embodying the essence of energy efficiency in modern heating.
