Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP)
An Air Source Heat Pump captures heat from the outside air and transfers it inside. Now of course this is simplified but the good folks at Cook’s Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning are experts on how they work, where they are best suited and most importantly, how to install and maintain them to their peak performance. So call Cook’s today and see if an Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP), which provides low cost space heating and up to 4 times more heat than an electric heater for the same amount of energy is the right solution for you.
The technology is similar to a refrigerator or freezer or air conditioning unit: the different effect is due to the physical location of the different system components. Just as the pipes on the back of a refrigerator become warm as the interior cools, so an ASHP warms the inside of a building whilst cooling the outside air.
The main components of an air-source heat pump are:
- An outdoor heat exchanger coil, which extracts heat from ambient air
- An indoor heat exchanger coil, which transfers the heat into hot air ducts, an indoor heating system such as water-filled radiators or underfloor circuits and/or a domestic hot water tank
