Air source heating systems
So how does air source heating work?
The system is based on an air source pump which is placed outside your house. It takes cold air from around it, condenses it and comes through the units as heat.
Although the air source heat pump is powered by electricity, the ratio is 70% air and only 30% electricity so by using air source heating the savings are huge compared to night storage heaters and other forms of electric heating.
Each unit can achieve temperatures of 30 degrees meaning less units are required as compared to standard methods of heating. An average three home will require only two units, usually one upstairs and one downstairs.
Don’t be fooled by other forms of electric heating, claims from some companies that sell German heaters for instance. The running costs are high, anything that has to plug into the wall to generate its own heat is bound to be expensive so if you currently have electric heating that needs updating please do call us on 01326 727398 for your free no obligation survey
Some of the other benefits of this system:
- All air is filtered before coming into the property which means that if there are any allergies, asthma, hayfever or breathing difficulties it really helps!
2. Damp. The units have a built in dehumidifier which is very helpful for some properties we see
3. You can reverse the air source heat pump for cooling in the summer so your system will always have the right temperature for every day of the year.
