WHAT ARE AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS?

Air Source Heat Pumps are by far the easiest system to install and one of the most cost effective solutions we provide throughout WarwickshireWorcestershireLeicestershire Staffordshire, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Nottinghamshire. This form of heat pump is capable of supplying your central heating and hot water requirements by harnessing the power of the air. 

How We Work

We offer an End to End service with 5 defined phases, ensuring your project runs with ease from start to finish.

Consultation

We’ll start by meeting with you to discuss your project.

Quote

Once we’ve ascertained the scope of the project, we’ll put together a custom quote for you.

Design

We’ll then produce schematics of your system and send your options to you for approval.

Install

We will install your system using the most up to date technologies and techniques.

Commission

On completion, we will conduct your system commissioning, signing your system off as complete.

How Do They Work?

Air source heat pumps extract energy from the air via a refrigeration process - The Heat Pump Cycle. The captured energy is transferred into water via a heat exchange process and subsequently is used for heating and hot water supply. 

The Heat Pump Cycle

The Heat Pump Cycle is built up of 4 Phases.

Phase 1- Evaporation:

By means of a heat exchanger, the liquid refrigerant extracts renewable energy from the heat source (air, ground or water) and evaporates the refrigerant into a gas.

Phase 2 - Compression:

By the introduction of electrical energy, the now gaseous, but still cold refrigerant, is compressed in a compressor and thus heated. The refrigerant leaves the compressor as a hot gas.

Phase 3 - Liquefying/ Condensing:

The hot gas now reaches the condenser and transfers energy into the heating system. During this energy exchange the gas condenses and leaves the condenser as warm fluid refrigerant.

Phase 4 - Decompression:

The warm fluid refrigerant is now transported to the expansion valve. As the refrigerant passes through the expansion valve, a significant reduction in pressue lowers the refrigerant temperature without any loss of energy. The cold fluid refridgerant is then reintroduced into the evaporator and the cycle begins again.
