What is an air source heat pump?

Air source heat pumps extract thermal energy (heat) from the outside air and convert this into heating and hot water for your home. Air source heat pumps are designed to work in cold temperatures and are suitable for a range of homes, from a small apartment* to a large detached home. Air source heat pumps do require electricity to operate, but 75% of the energy required is generated from the outside air, with only 25% being required from electricity. This means that 75% of the energy you use will be from a renewable source, which will reduce your emissions and CO2 impact.

Air source heat pumps need to be located outside and require a solid base to sit on or structurally secure wall to be mounted to, in order to be installed. DCR will be able to advise you if your home is suitable for an air source heat pump.

Today, Valliants innovative solutions are still setting the standard in the heating marketplace. Valliant have produced a comprehensive range of renewable technologies designed to utilise sustainable sources of energy.

Vaillants products are at the very forefront of technology and deliver on the Vaillant promise to ‘think ahead’, safeguarding our planet for future generations whilst delivering energy efficient products that can reduce the cost of providing heating and hot water to the home.

Every product developed by Vaillant is routinely subjected to rigorous materials analysis, robustness testing, lifetime testing and acoustics analysis. This meticulous and unremitting commitment to quality is evident at every stage in the product development process, which is applied to every spare part that we sell.

Air-to-water heat pumps are becoming an increasingly popular choice for those looking to install renewable products in the home. The main advantage of air-to-water heat pumps is that they can help safeguard against the fluctuations in oil and LPG prices that leave homeowners vulnerable to the ever-rising costs of heating their home.

The air-to-water pumps can be integrated into UK heating systems with ease, causing minimal disruption to the homeowner. They also eliminate the need for on-site fuel storage and can be used as part of an efficient all-electric heating solution. Furthermore, air-to-water heat pumps offer excellent energy savings compared to alternatives like standard electric, LPG or oil, especially as all Vaillant heat pumps are MCS accredited and may therefore be eligible for government funding. They can also reduce carbon emissions, whilst offering a more sustainable heating solution than oil and LPG sources.

As experts within the heating industry, DCR can help you to develop bespoke heating systems that meet the requirements of even the most complex installations.
