Cost-Effective Air Source Heat Pump Installation Bromley
Air Source Heat Pump Installation Bromley
According to the International Energy Agency air source heat pumps have the potential to supply more than 90% of the world’s space and water heating in the coming decade. These high-efficiency, low-emission heat pumps are a simple, innovative way for homes and businesses to reduce their carbon footprint, save on their energy bills and enjoy a tidy refund from the UK government (more on that below). Air To Heat provide expert air source heat pump installation in Bromley for residential and commercial customers great and small.
How it works
Rather than simply putting a flame under cold water an air source heat pump extracts existing heat from the air and then boosts its temperature and distributes it throughout the home or business. They are sometimes referred to as “air to water” heat pumps because in essence that is exactly what they do. They extract heat from the outside air and then transfer it to water. That heated water then circulates throughout the house feeding the radiators and even underfloor heating elements.
Some of the heated water can also be stored in the hot water tank and made available to your kitchen and bathroom taps, as well as the shower and bath. The level of heat produced by an air source heat pump is more modest than that produced by a boiler, but once you get the hang of using them you’ll find they fulfil all your heat and hot water needs for less than water heated by electricity, oil, natural gas or coal.
Installing an Air Source Heat Pump
Unlike a boiler, an air source heat pump will be installed outside your Bromley home in an area that ensures there is plenty of air circulating around the unit (as it pulls heat from the air that circulation is crucial). There will be a secondary unit inside the house that contains heated water along with pumps to distribute it throughout the home or business. Just be aware that you may need planning permission in order to install an air source heat pump.
