Air Source

Using air source you can heat your home with energy absorbed from the air around you. Air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, or warm air convectors and hot water in your home.

An air source heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -15° C. Heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the ground, air, or water is constantly being renewed naturally.

An air-to-water system distributes heat via your wet central heating system. Heat pumps work much more efficiently at a lower temperature than a standard boiler system would. So they are more suitable for under floor heating systems or larger radiators, which give out heat at lower temperatures over longer periods of time.

Combine air source with underfloor heating
Underfloor heating works very well in combination with an air source system
Power air source using solar pv

A great way to supply the electricity for your air source system is to power it using solar pv panels
