Air source heat pumps are a type of renewable energy technology that can be used for heating and cooling purposes. They work by using the air around us as a source of energy, which means they are much more environmentally friendly than traditional fossil fuel-based systems.
Heat pumps work by taking the heat from the air (or ground, in the case of ground source heat pumps) and using it to heat up a fluid. This fluid then passes through a compressor, which increases its temperature. The hot fluid is then passed through a coil, where it transfers its heat to the air or water inside the coil. This process can be reversed, so that the heat pump can be used for cooling purposes as well as heating.
Air source heat pumps are a very efficient way of heating and cooling buildings, as they use less energy than traditional systems. They are also much better for the environment, as they don’t produce any harmful emissions.
