Air source heat pumps - LMF Energy Services

You may have heard about air source heat pumps but after speaking to many of our customers it’s become apparent that there is some confusion over how they work and if they will be suitable for your home.

We’ve put together a brief guide on the benefits of Air Source and how it can improve the efficiency of your home.

What is an Air Source Heat Pump?

An Air Source Heat Pump transfers heat from the outside air to water, which then heats your home via radiators or underfloor heating. It can also heat water cylinder for your hot taps, showers and baths.

Heat from the air is absorbed into fluid. This fluid then passes through a heat exchanger into the heat pump, which raises the temperature and then transfers that heat to water.

Is an air source heat pump right for my home?

Most UK homes are suitable for ASHP. You will need a place outside of your home where a unit can be fitted to a wall or place don the ground. This area will require space around it to allow the air to flow.

Will an Air Source Heat Pump make my property more efficient?

An air source heat pump is a more sustainable option than oil or gas heating as it uses electricity more efficiently than any other heating systems. An air source heat pump is going to be a more efficient and cost-effective way to cool your home. Ensuring your home is well insulated will improve the efficiency.

How much will an air source heat pump cost and is there any funding available?

The cost of installing an Air source heat pump is dependant on many factors including the size of your home and your existing heating.

There are various schemes that can assist with the funding of an Air Source Heat Pump. The ECO 4 Scheme provides funding for customers on certain benefits whose property meets a certain criteria. You can find more information here.
