How does an air source heat pump work?

Air source heat pumps work by extracting heat from the outside air similar to a fridge in reversal, which extracts heat from its inside. This heat can then be used to heat the home via radiators, underfloor heating systems and is available to provide hot water. Equally important is the fact that it is able to operate when outside temperatures drop as low as -20°C.

Typically an air-source heat pump will be able to harvest and emit 3.5 times more free energy from the air than it takes to run the pump. This is known as a ‘Coefficient of Performance’ and is directly comparable to conventional boiler efficiency.

There is also the option of a hybrid heat pump which can be installed alongside a fossil fuel boiler to help make your heating more cost efficient. To find out more, read our article What’s so special about an Air Source Heat Pump?.

  • When Matt came round to discuss solar panels, he really listened to what I was saying, as I wanted a system whereby I could store the solar energy gathered during the day, and then use it when I came home. Whereas other companies told me this was impossible and wanted to sell me geothermal or other technologies, Princes LHS Ltd suggested a battery system, such as those used off-grid. A novel solution.

    I totally recommend them for solar technology

  • We at Grove School had been looking at ways of reducing our energy bills and upon speaking to Simon Lewis at Princes LHS Ltd in Ellesmere, he suggested carrying out a specialised lighting survey to reduce the overall wattage of our existing lighting installation by installing a more efficient type of light fitting with a lower overall wattage.

  • I just wanted to say a very big thanks to the two lovely lads Ryan and Jack who came out yesterday to fit our new bolier. They were very courteous and worked nonstop to ensure that the boiler was up and running for us.

    We have used Princes LHS Ltd in the past for our alarm system and electrics and have always been satisfied. Ryan and Jack are a credit to your company. their professionalism and politeness was very refreshing.
