Our Air Source Heat Pumps
Our Misubishi Ecodan Air Source Heat Pumps have been developed specifically for the UK and Northern European climate; bringing advanced technology refined in the commercial heating sector to your home. Before we found this Heat Pump we were often reluctant to recommend Air Source. The Mitsubishi Ecodan is unique as its variable flow technology allows it to operate effectively with traditional radiators rather than just underfloor heating. The Mitsubishi Ecodan benefits from inverter driven technology meaning it is the quietest and most efficient as electricity consumption is perfectly matched to heat demand. The Mitsubishi Ecodan can work efficiently all year round even if the outdoor temperature drops to -25ºC.
Air Source Heat Pumps are much easier and less expensive to install than ground source as no borehole is required, making them suitable for a wider variety of properties from flats to large houses.
Our range of Air Source Heat Pumps consist of an external box which is fitted to your outside wall. It harvests renewable, low grade energy from the outdoor air and upgrades this into useful heat to supply a home with hot water and heating. For every 4KW of heat moved into the house only 1KW of electricity is used by the heat pump. This provides at least a 400% level of efficiency which is defined as having a Co-efficient Of Performance (COP) ratio of 4:1. When you compare this to modern boilers which are typically 80% efficient the benefits are clear.
