Save money and the environment: the vast benefits of air source heat pumps
Renewability, cost and versatility are some of the most important factors to consider when deciding how to heat your property, and an air source heat pump is a fantastic solution.
These clever machines extract heat absorbed by air outdoors and transfer it into the premises through a similar process used by refrigerators, resulting in one of the most efficient and eco-friendly heating systems available.
Here are some benefits to consider when going over your heating options with the Clarity Heating team, be it for the home or workplace.
Heating for every situation
Air source heat pumps come in a variety of models and specifications depending on the needs of your property.
Air-to-air models, for example, transfer space heating directly into a premises, while air-to-water systems are great for distributing heat over a large area and are designed to replace entire central heating systems.
Both types of air source heat pumps are easy to install and can operate at temperatures down to -20°C, making them reliable whatever the weather.
Most air source heat pumps also have the ability to double up as coolers, providing a simple and year-round solution to regulating the temperature of your property.
Reduced emissions, reduced cost with Air Source Heating
Having an air source heat pump can reduce your CO2 emissions by over 23 tonnes across 10 years according to EDF Energy. Such a stellar green record means a number of monetary incentives have become available over the past few years.
The government’s Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), for instance, can see you receive payments based on the level of renewable heat generated by your air source heat pump for up to seven years. You can visit the RHI calculator on GOV.UK to see what you could be entitled to.
Air source heat pumps can also save large amounts of money (dependant on property types), by using electricity to generate heat instead of gas or oil, and they can even be set up to use solar power.
Air Source Heating – the long-lasting heating solution
Most models have a 20-year life expectancy, which is about five years longer than the average combi boiler according to Viessmann.
It’s common for air source heat pumps to also come with five-year warranties, showing the confidence of manufacturers in their robustness and longevity.
