  • The Benefits of air source heat pumps

    The Benefits of air source heat pumps

  • • Lower fuel bills, especially if you are replacing conventional electric heating.
  • • Potential income through the UK government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
  • • Lower home carbon emissions, depending on which fuel you are replacing.
  • • No fuel deliveries needed.
  • • Can heat your home as well as your water.
  • • Minimal maintenance required.
  • • Can be easier to install than a ground source heat pump.

    Unlike gas and boilers, heat pumps deliver heat at lower temperatures over much longer periods.

    How do air source heat pumps work?

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

  • Heat Pumps

    Heat Pumps

    There are two main types of air source heat pump systems:

    Air-to-water

    An air-to-water system distributes heat via your wet central heating system. Heat pumps work much more efficiently at a lower temperature than a standard boiler system would. This makes them more suitable for underfloor heating systems or larger radiators, which give out heat at lower temperatures over longer periods of time.

    Air-to-air

    An air-to-air system produces warm air which is circulated by fans to heat your home. They are unlikely to provide you with hot water aswell.

    Unique Hybrid System

    The heat pump is a unique combination of a high efficiency gas combi boiler and renewable energy air-to-water heat pump. Unlike other available boiler-heat pump combinations, it works in series rather than in parallel. This means the flow of one can feed into the return of the other in certain economical operating modes.

    Minimal Running Costs

    The boiler and heat pump can run in combination or in isolation, to maximise energy-efficiency and minimise running costs. The system comprises of a single combined indoor unit, plus an outdoor heat pump unit. The indoor unit’s compact size means it can usually be fitted easily into the same space as the boiler it is replacing.The heat pump is a domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (dRHI) ready heating system.

    Smart Hybrid Logic

    The heat pump is controlled by smart hybrid logic. This automatically selects the most cost-effective heating mode at any time of day or night, all year-round.It takes into account external temperatures and internal heat and hot water demand, as well as the relative cost of gas and electricity.Home-owners and tenants can input their latest energy tariffs so that the smart hybrid logic control can identify the most economical operating mode. It maximises the use of the heat pump as long as this is more cost-efficient than using the gas boiler.

    For Replacing Gas and LPG Boilers

    The heat pump is ideal for replacing on-gas and LPG boilers as there’s no need to replace existing radiators and pipework.The Hybrid is most suited to properties with heat loads from 12kW-20kW, but can cover heat loads up to 27kW.

    Ideal for new and low energy homes

    The heat pumps from Nottingham Energy Centre are low temperature heat pumps designed for the highest seasonal efficiencies. So it’s ideal for new build, retrofit and low energy houses – and is accredited by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) accreditation for compliance with funding schemes.

    Save on running costs, while optimising comfort

    Heat pumps deliver major energy savings, while maintaining a constantly comfortable room temperature. User friendly smart controls ensure energy efficiency across all seasons, keeping running costs low, without compromising on comfort.

    Limited Installation Space

    Heat pumps are ideal for heating your hot water without needing an extra electric heater. You can stack the hot water tank on top of the indoor unit.

    Boiler Replacement

    This heating system makes it easy to replace your existing boiler without having to make any other changes to your existing heating system’s piping.

    Easy Control

    You can adjust the temperature quickly, easily and conveniently.

    Efficient in any climate

    The new outdoor unit is designed to withstand even the most severe winter conditions and will operate when the temperature falls to -25°C.
