Air Source Heat Pump Installation
An air source heat pump is an innovative and environmentally friendly way of providing hot water and heating all year round. We design our air source heat pumps to operate with a Co-efficient Performance (COP) of 3 to 1, so for every kilowatt of electricity you pay for; you get 3 kilowatts of heat output, meaning the system is 300% efficient.
Heat pumps are usually installed to the rear of the property to a suitable exterior wall where optimum heat absorption can be utilised. Contrary to popular belief air source heat pumps are extremely quiet and in actual fact make a similar noise to that of an office table fan.
There is very little maintenance needed for air source heat pumps as there are few moving parts and processes that can go wrong. Heat pumps have been labelled the ‘fit and forget technology’ as a simple annual service inspection is the only maintenance that is required, a service that is provided by Safegas.
We at Safegas Wetherby have teamed up with market leading heat pump manufacturer Mitsubishi to offer renewable heating solutions in the Yorkshire region through their award winning Ecodan range. The Ecodan heat pump technology is one of the most advanced and efficient on the market. Ecodan systems provide a simple, renewable solution that rivals traditional heating systems so you can rest assured we are installing the most reliable products on the market.
How does an air source heat pump work?
Based on the reverse concept of a fridge, heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air, and can generate heat even if the outside temperature drops to a freezing -25 degrees. Using electricity; the heat pump compresses the air and releases it at a higher temperature. The temperature is raised and subsequently used to heat radiators and underfloor heating systems.
Although heat pumps are a relatively new technology in the UK they are tried and tested across much harsher climates like Scandinavia where many thousands of homeowners are already reaping the rewards of converting to air source heat pumps.
Why install an air source heat pump?
What can I expect to save on my annual fuel bills when converting to a Heat Pump based on a typical three bedroom detached house:
