GSM Limited have recently completed the installation of a 16kW Air Source Heat Pump for a domestic customer. The customer was previously spending quite a bit of money on oil though their combi boiler. With a need to become more self sufficient and save costs, the Air Source Heat Pump was used to replace the existing combi boiler with a Daiken Altherma Nordic Air to Water Heat Pump.
Air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, or warm air convectors and hot water in your home.
An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -15° C. Heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the ground, air, or water is constantly being renewed naturally.
The benefits of air source heat pumps
Air source heat pumps (also known as ASHPs):
• could lower your fuel bills, especially if you are replacing conventional electric heating
• could provide you with an income through the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
• could lower your home’s carbon emissions, depending on which fuel you are replacing
• don’t need fuel deliveries
• can heat your home and provide and hot water
• need little maintenance – they’re called ‘fit and forget’ technology
• can be easier to install than a ground source heat pump, though efficiencies may be lower.
Unlike gas and oil boilers, heat pumps deliver heat at lower temperatures over much longer periods.
