Air Source Heat Pump


[edit]
Description Transfers heat from the outside to the inside of a building, or vice versa. Can be used for full central and water heating of a property when applied successfully.
Advantages
  • Efficient in producing heat
  • Cheaper than oil boilers and gas boilers.
  • Potential to be automated
  • Requires no additional fuel
  • No dangerous refrigerant gasses
  • No ground loop heat exchanger required
Disadvantages
  • Cannot harness ground heat when hotter than ambient air
  • fan based system results in noise
Characteristic features
Application barriers
  • Ground Source Heat Pumps are often taken in more versatile climates as they are more consistent.
