How Do Heat Pumps Work

Air source heat pumps essentially work by extracting latent heat from the air, and this represents a major step forward in energy efficient climate control because they utilise free heat from the environment, rather than generating it from traditional fuel sources such as electricity, gas, oil or LPG. Our technologically advanced air source heat pumps extract latent heat from the outside air even when the temperature is down as low as -20°C, which is quite rare in the UK, and pump it inside to heat indoor spaces. Therefore making use of the outside air is an infinitely renewable energy resource and because they consume much less electricity than the heat they generate, heat pumps also have significantly lower running costs than traditional energy sources. Our air source heat pump solutions include:

The new Daikin Altherma LT Split is a low temperature heat pump designed for the highest seasonal efficiencies and is ideal for new build, retrofit and low energy houses. The Altherma LT Split delivers major energy savings, while maintaining a constantly comfortable room temperature. User friendly smart controls ensure energy efficiency across all seasons, keeping running costs low, without compromising on comfort.

The Daikin Altherma HT is a high temperature heat pump that will provide your home with heating and hot water. It’s an ideal replacement for a traditional boiler as it connects seamlessly to your existing piping and radiators, making it the perfect solution for renovations!

Air Source Heat Pump Efficiency

Air source heat pumps have many environmental advantages thanks to their remarkable efficiency. Compared to other forms of heating they have much reduced operating costs and CO2 emissions. Other advantages are:

  • Recognised as a renewable heat technology
  • Use less energy than traditional heating methods
  • Reduce carbon emissions
  • Eligible for the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)
  • Eligible for the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (domestic RHI)
  • Eligible for Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA)
  • Cost efficient operation

Their status as a renewable energy technology also renders them eligible for many tax benefits and government grant schemes such as 5% VAT on equipment and installation fees and support from the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive scheme (domestic RHI).
