What is an Air Sourced Heat Pump & Why Choose one?

An air source heat pump (ASHP) is a type of renewable energy system that can be used to heat your home and provide hot water. It works by extracting heat from the outside air and transferring it into your home to heat it.

It’s worth mentioning that the efficiency of an air source heat pump will depend on the ambient temperature, it’s not suitable for extremely cold climates. Furthermore, an air sourced heat pump may not be suitable for every household, so you should consider your specific heating needs, the size and layout of your home, and the age of your property.
