What is an Air Source Heat Pump and how does it work?

In the same style as a Ground Source Heat Pump, an Air Source Heat Pump uses energy from the air to generate heat for your home or business.

Air Source Heat Pumps work by taking the heat from the air outside and moves this around your home as the main source of energy. This is almost like a refrigerator but in reverse!

The outside air gets blown into a network of pipes filled with a refrigerant. The air warms the refrigerant and turns the liquid into a gas which passes through a compressor – this increases the pressure. The compressed gas go through a heat exchanger, which warms the surrounding gas or liquid up in the process. When the air is warm, it is then circulated around the home.
