Air Source Heat Pumps London & Nationwide
Extracting Heat from the Outside Air
Ground Sun has been air source heat pump installers in London and nationwide for a decade now and, in that time, we've fitted and installed domestic and commercial buildings with our quality Austrian and UK manufactured heat pumps.
We recognise that the Ochsner air source heat pumps are representative of an innovative step towards climate control that provides energy efficiency; a balance that has eluded the market until now. Suitable for use in radiator systems, underfloor heating and warm air convectors this technology can revolutionise the buildings in which they are installed. Ground Sun is the premier installer of air source heat pumps in London and operates nationwide.
Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) (also known as air to water heat pumps) extract heat from the outside air. This heat is absorbed at low temperature into a fluid, which passes through a compressor where its temperature is increased and this heat is transferred to heat emitters in the property.
Ochsner ASHPs can now offer efficiencies as good as Ground Source Heat Pumps and they are easier and quicker to install than most ground source options. They are especially suitable where space is limited and horizontal ground loops or boreholes are not an option. The Ochsner GMLW 14 plus ASHP offers excellent efficiencies with a COP (coefficient of performance) of 4.4. ASHPs will provide you with an income through the Government's RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) Scheme, however, tariffs are lower than those for Ground Source Heat Pumps - see Grants and Incentives for more details.
2-3 kW - for hot water
5-100kW Plus - domestic/commercial
How Air Source Heat Pumps Work
Air Source Heat Pumps operate through a very simple process where natural heat transitions from air, into a fluid. This process is achieved by lowering the temperature of the original heat source. The fluid that is produced through this process then travels through the pump’s compressor where it is heated up, going on to then heat the home’s circuit to serve as a warm water source.
The efficiency that such pumps offer is gained from the way in which the process uses free heat from the environment in which it is found (as opposed to generating the heat through typical fuel sources which include gas, oil and LPG).
Benefits of an Air Source Heat Pump in the UK
In addition to providing energy efficiency, our air source heat pump installations in London present numerous other benefits, including:
Lower fuel bills (particularly if you are making the switch from electric heating),
A possible income if you join the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive,
No need for inconvenient oil or gas deliveries,
Space and water heating,
Low maintenance requirements,
Can be far easier to install than ground source heat pumps.
