Air to Water Heat Pump
With the support of Government schemes and homeowners wanting a better solution to these concerns, new and innovative ways of heating homes have been developed. These systems involve new and more efficient ways of heating and delivering hot water to your home compared to traditional ways of heating your home such as oil or gas boilers.

HOW DOES AN AIR TO WATER HEAT PUMP WORK?
Air to water (or Air Source) heat pumps utilise energy in the outside air and transforms it into usable heat. This is performed through a refrigeration process and a vapour compression cycle, which sounds very complicated, but it’s basically how a fridge works, but in reverse. Heat pumps work much more efficiently at a lower temperature than a standard boiler system would. An air to water heat pump extracts heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -15° C. This makes them very suitable for underfloor heating systems or larger radiators, which give out heat at lower temperatures over longer periods of time. An underfloor heating system circulates low temperature water. Most conventional heating systems circulate higher temperature water, usually between 50ºC to 80ºC whereas an underfloor heating system circulates water between 25ºC to 40ºC. An Air to Water heat pump is the most modern and efficient way of generating this low temperature supply of water. A heat pump is the most efficient way of heating your home and your domestic hot water requirements for Irish climate conditions. Air to Water heat pumps also dramatically reduce CO2 emissions and carbon footprints.
