How do air source heat pumps work?

Heat from the air is absorbed at low temperature into a fluid. This fluid passes through a compressor, increasing the temperature, and transfers that higher temperature heat to the heating and hot water circuits of the house.


There are two main types of ASHP: air-to-water and air-to-air. Choosing an air-to-water or an air-to-air system will determine the type of heat distribution system you need.

Benefits of air source heat pumps

  • It could lower your fuel bills, especially if you replace conventional electric heating.
  • It could provide you with an income through the UK Government's Renewable Heat Incentive (only applies to air-to-water heat pumps)
  • It could lower home carbon emissions.
  • There are no fuel deliveries needed.
  • It can heat your home as well as your water.
  • It can be easier to install than a ground source heat pump.
