What Is an Air Source Heat Pump?

Air at any temperature contains some energy. An air source heat pumps turn part of energy into the heating from one place to another, for example inside of the buildings and place. This energy can provide space heating and hot water. A single system can be designed to transfer heat in either direction, to heat or cool the interior of the building in winter and summer respectively.

The technology is similar to the air conditioning unit: the different effect is due to the physical location of the different system components. Just as the pipes on the back of a refrigerator become warm as the interior cools, so an ASHP warms the inside of a building whilst cooling the outside air.

There Are Two Main Types of Heat Pumps to Choose From:

Air-to-air heat pumps - absorbs heat from the outside air and then transfers it directly into your home via a fan system to heat a room or an indoor space.

Air-to-water heat pumps - absorbs heat from the outside air and then transfers it via your central heating system to provide both hot water heating and heating for an indoor space.


Advantages of an Air Source Heat Pump

Work Very Well under -30℃

Adopting the compressor with an air-supplying enthalpy-adding device, the DEV air source heat pump shall work very well under environment temperature -30℃.


Air source heat pumps can alternatively be powered by wind energy or solar power instead of electricity


Heating capacity increasing 15%-25%, compared to the normal air conditioner.

It will cool in Summer and Heat in Winter & Multi-Purpose


Safety and Carefree

There is no fuel delivery and storage, which shall eliminate the fuel leak, fire, and explosion hazards

Easy and Convenient

It is easy and convenient to install with less cost. The technology will adopt the current control program of air conditioners, which shall be very mature for the past 10 years and also be able to realize the control start and stop through intelligent remote control.

An air source heat pump can deliver heat at a lower temperatures at -20 C compared to conventional oil and gas boilers

Provides cooling in the summer and heating in the winter

They should be cleaned every few months and serviced by a technician once a year

You could potentially receive payments by producing your own heat through the UK’s Renewable Heat Incentive


Efficient in summer due to high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER)

Reliable and Durable

Using the R410 refrigerant and compressor with an air-supplying enthalpy-adding device, DEV air heater is able to work well very under the environment temperature from 43to -25, and had been widely used in Northern Area of China.

No fuel storage is needed

It only requires a few days to install air source heat pump

Tiny Size with Room-saving and Energy-Saving

After thorough research and examination of air source heat pump reviews, here you will find significant advantages of purchasing an air source heat pump:

They provide a low carbon footprint and save more on your next energy bill 

They have a long lifespan with proper care they can be operational for up to 20 years
