Air Source Heat Pumps
An air-to-water Air source heat pump takes in the air from outside a property and then converts it to a higher temperature. The heat is then sent to radiators and/ or underfloor heating and the remainder is stored in a hot water cylinder, which can then be used for baths, showers and taps.
There are many advantages of air source Heat Pumps including lower fuel bills if you are using conventional electric heating and reducing your carbon footprint depending on the fuel you are replacing.
Air source heat pumps also qualify for the Renewable Heat Insentive (RHI).
Air Cooling Heat Pumps
Air-to-air Heat Pumps take heat from the air outside which is then fed into your home through fans. During summer months, an Air-to-air system can be used in reverse, like an air-conditioning unit, to cool your home.
Ground Source Heat Pumps
Ground source heat pumps extract heat from your garden via pipes buried in the ground. The generated heat can then be used for underfloor heating, radiators, warm air heating systems and hot water in your home throughout the year.
