What is a heat pump?

Put simply a heat pump takes the available heat from the ground or air surrounding a property and increases it to a more useful temperature for use in the home or commercial building. This renewable source of heat can be used to create warm air or hot water. Heat pumps are becoming more popular as people strive to reduce their carbon footprint.

Ground Source Heat Pumps

The ground source heat pump (GSHP) works by pumping a mix of antifreeze and water around a looped pipe (ground loop) which is buried under the ground. Heat from the ground is absorbed into the water and antifreeze mix then is pushed into a heat exchanger and then into the heat pump.

Air source heat pumps

Air source heat pumps also known as ASHPs are available in two varieties, air to water and air to air. The air to water heat pumps contain a liquid refrigerant fluid which absorbs heat from the air. Even if the heat it absorbs is of a low temperature it has the capability to heat it further because the fluid is passed through a compressor system which in turn increases its temperature. The heat is then transferred to the hot water or central heating system within the property which heats the central heating or hot water system.

An air to air heat pump system works in a similar way to air to water pump systems. The main difference is that it takes heat from the air and it is distributed into the property via fans.
