Air Source Heat Pumps

An Air Source Heat Pump uses outside air as a heat source. A compressor, condenser and refrigerant system is used to absorb heat at one place and release it at another.

Outside air, necessarily existing at some temperature above absolute zero, is a heat container. An air-source heat pump moves ("pumps") some of this heat to provide hot water or household heating. This can be done in either direction, to cool or heat the interior of a building.

Air source heat pumps can provide fairly low cost space heating. A high efficiency heat pump can provide four times the heat compared to an electric heater.

Air source heat pumps should last for over 20 years with low maintenance requirements

Since April 2010 the government have replaced the grant scheme with a feed in tariff (FIT) Below is a link that will explain this further.
