What is an Air source Heat Pumps (ASHP)?

An ASHP takes low temperature energy from the external air and upgrades it to a higher, more useful temperatures. They can provide an energy efficient, low carbon form of space heating because typically for every kWh of electrical energy used to operate the ASHP the resulting useful heat output is three to four kWh. The cost of energy provided by the ASHP is less than the cost of heat provided by a gas/oil boiler, even though the cost of electricity is higher than the cost of gas/oil. 

An ASHP is installed externally of the building. The air source will be directed through the use of a refrigerant circuit. Air will be drawn across the evaporator by use of a fan. 

Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)

Rising global concern over environmental issues and particularly climate change has focused attention on the utilisation of renewable energy. The UK Government recognises ASHP’s as a renewable energy source under the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme; The RHI will pay back the owner of the equipment for the free energy generated in a similar way to the FIT (Feed In Tariff) for Solar PV systems. In order for the installation to quilify for the RHI, the manufacturer of the heat pumps and the installer must be Microgeneration Certificate Scheme (MCS) registered
