Air Source Heat Pumps- Birminghams Heat Pump Experts

Air Source Heat Pump installations in Birmingham & The Midlands.  Here at ‘Heatwise Southwest Renewables’ in Birmingham  we are specialist installers of the renewable technologies…Heat Pumps, Solar Panels alike….  Below is a brief summary of how Air Source Heat Pumps work.

Air Source Heat Pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat can then be used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, or warm air convectors and hot water in your home.

An Air Source Heat Pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts Heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -15° C. Heat Pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the air is constantly being renewed which we call sustainable !

Heat from the air is absorbed at low temperature into a fluid. This fluid then passes through a compressor, increases in temperature, and gives off higher temperature heat to the heating and hot water circuits of the house.

There are two main types of Air Source Heat Pump system – Air to Water Heat Pump & Air to air Heat Pump. We are allways trying to educate people towards the benefits of renewable energy and how britain itelf is trying to move towards a sustainable future !!!
