Air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems and hot water in your home. 

How do Air Source Heat Pumps work?

An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. They can extract 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 is constantly being renewed naturally.

Pure Green Energy can supply, install and maintain a variety of air source heat pumps to suit your needs.

The benefits of an Air Source Heat Pump

  • Lower fuel bills, especially if you are replacing conventional electric heating.
  • Lower home carbon emissions, depending on which fuel you are replacing.
  • No fuel deliveries needed.
  • Minimal maintenance required
  • Consistent comfort: Distributes heat evenly, eliminating hot and cold spots. 
  • MCS approved for the Boiler Updrade Scheme (BUS) with a grant of £7,500.  

Installing an Air Source Heat Pump - what's required?

An ASHP can be installed in a range of properties, whether small or large, rural or urban. Air source heat pumps look similar to air-conditioning units. They are less disruptive to install than ground source heat pumps, as they do not require any considerable trench digging in your garden. 

An air source heat pump is right for you if:

  • You are looking for a low-carbon, eco-friendly and sustainable way to heat your home.
  • The property is well insulated – this is important for efficiency and keeping running costs low.
  • There is not enough outside space needed for a ground source heat pump – typically three times the total floor area of the property. For an ASHP, all you need is room for the unit to be fitted to an exterior wall, with enough space around it to get a good flow of air.

Both new and existing properties can benefit from the energy-saving capabilities of a heat pump.

Any renewable energy installation which attracts government-backed funding requires both the equipment and the installer to be accredited under a government-authorised scheme. This accreditation is audited annually to ensure standards are upheld. Pure Green Energy are accredited with MCS, Napit, RECC and Trustmark.
