Introduction to air source heat pumps.

How does an air source Heat Pump work?

In principle, the heat pump works like a refrigerator: the same technique, only reversed utility. The heat pump receives energy from the heat source side (earth, water or air) at a low temperature and releases heat with a higher temperature on the heating side.

A heat pump uses solar energy stored in the air. This energy is available at any time, day or night, summer or winter. In the case of air source heat pumps, it is important, on the one hand, that they are designed for our latitudes (cold climate) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and, on the other hand, to ensure the lowest possible sound emission. Our heat pumps have been optimized for these criteria. The use of the air source heat pump does not require any excavation work in your garden, only a little space for installation.

Frequently Asked Questions

RHI Government payback

Air Source Heat Pumps save money. Heat pumps are much cheaper to run than direct electric heating systems. ASHPs are cheaper to run than oil boilers and can be cheaper than runing gas boilers.

Because heat pumps can be fully automated they demand much less work than biomass boilers.

Heat pumps save space. There are no fuel storage requirements.

No need to manage fuel deliveries.

No risk of fuel being stolen.

Heat pumps are safe. There is no combustion involved and no emission of potentially dangerous gases. No flues are required.

ASHPs require less maintenance than combustion based heating systems. They also have a longer life than combustion boilers.

Heat pumps save carbon emissions. Unlike burning oil, gas, LPG or biomass, a heat pump produces no carbon emissions on site (and no carbon emissions at all, if a renewable source of electricity is used to power them).

The best heat pump is only as good as the designed system concept. PicoEnergy is always optimally oriented to this development!

This results in heating systems with maximum efficiency, which is permanently tested and confirmed by independent authorized testing institutes.
