Dec 15 2016The Selection of Air Source Heat Pumps as a Solution to Domestic Heating

Air Source Heat Pumps

What do they look like what do they do, how do they do it and why use them?

A small domestic ASHP looks like an air conditioning unit on the side of a building.

An Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) is an appliance using electricity to provide heating and cooling to a building. ASHP do this by using the refrigeration process to collect and move heat energy in and out of a space and consuming electrical energy in the process. The value of ASHP’s is their ability to move significantly more heat energy than the process uses in electrical energy.

To help understand the value of the heat pump process, conveniently, both heat energy and electrical energy are measured in Kilowatts (kW) as they are both energy. This means we can compare “apples with apples” or the two energy types equally.
