Air source heat pump systems have the lowest running costs available giving major savings over gas boilers. They give compliance with the latest building regulations and they are registered on the Energy Technology List, which enables clients to qualify for up to 100% first year enhanced capital allowances (ECA) see website ECA : Home Page for more information.
An air to water Heat pump system uses heat energy present in the outdoor air to heat the house, cool it and also to produce hot water.
The system therefore uses free energy to heat or cool your home. It only consumes electricity to operate the compressor, the electronics, the pumps and in the event of very low temperatures, the electric elements. The result is very high efficiency and real energy savings. There are several types of Heat Pump:
The split system
This is formed by an outdoor unit and a hydraulic module, normally located in the utility room or garage. This configuration requires refrigerant pipes between the two units but is easily integrated in the house and can be connected to an existing boiler, for example.
The single-unit system
Only has an outdoor unit. The installation doesn’t require a refrigerated connection and is only connected to the heating system. This system is therefore easier to install, but requires more outdoor space.
