What are air source heat pumps?
An air source heat pump (ASHP) is a system that transfers heat from outside of a building to the inside or vice versa. There are two main types of air source heat pumps air-to-water and air-to-heat.
How do air source heat pumps work?
Under the principles of vapour compression refrigeration, an air source heat pump uses a refrigerant system involving a compressor and a condenser to absorb heat in one place and releases it in another.
An air source heat pump is usually placed outdoors at the side or back of a property. It takes heat from the air and boosts it to a higher temperature using a heat pump. The pump needs electricity to run, but it should use less electrical energy than the heat it produces.

Benefits of air source heat pumps
Air source heat pumps are a renewable alternative to heat your factory or office suites. With an air source heat pump, you can save money on your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint compared to a gas or electric heating system.
One of the key advantages of air source heat pumps is their versatility and affordability. An ASHP can work for either heating or cooling purposes and can be used for space heating or water heating. Air source heat pumps have been a form of low carbon heating, as they use the outside air to heat or cool. If you are switching from coal or electricity-based heating systems, you can significantly reduce your carbon emissions.
Where are air source heat pumps used?
Air source heat pumps can be used in most industries. Almost every company in the world will need their offices, factories, leisure and hospitality facilities either heating or cooling down at some point, depending on the time of year and temperature outside.
