How does a heat pump work?

Heat pumps are a renewable source of heat which harnesses the energy from the air outside your home, heating the building and hot water.

There are three different types of heat pump system.

Air source: This is the most popular type of system which extracts heat from the outside air. This system does not require underground piping and is much quicker and easier to install in comparison to other heat pump systems

Ground source heat pumps use the heat from the earth through a series of pipes.

Water source use open water like lakes, rivers and streams as source of heat. This is collected through pipework and transfer to the heat pump.
