Air Source Heat Pumps are often the most affordable way of getting heat pump technology in to your home and requires very little space to install. There is an external unit that is placed outside the house, extracting heat from the air, which is linked to an internal hot water cylinder. The Air Source Heat Pumps that we provide from Mitsubishi are capable of providing all of the heating and hot water for your property all year round. The unit is robust and reliable and can be fitted in virtually any home. Air source heat pumps extract heat from the air, even at freezing temperatures, and pump this back into your radiators or under floor heating within your property. An air source heat pump works in a similar way to refrigerator, whereby heat from the air is absorbed into a fluid which is then pumped into a heat exchanger. The system then extracts the heat and concentrates it with a compressor until it is hot enough to send to your hot water system or radiators.
We have elected to supply Mitsubishi Ecodan units as our Air Source Heat Pumps of choice because of the superior quality of the product and the efficiency gains it offers. An Ecodan heating pump can produce efficiency gains of approximately 320% when compared to a traditional fossil fuel heating system. No gas or oil boiler could ever hope to achieve efficiency gains of this magnitude and this demonstrates the real potential of air source heat.
