Air-to-air heat pumps

Benefits

  • Highly efficient, low carbon heating solution
  • Provides heating in winter and cooling in summer
  • Can be mounted high to maximise wall space

Air-to-air heat pumps transfer heat from the outside air to air inside your home, increasing the temperature of the air in each room. This warm air enters your home through a series of fan coil units, or ‘blowers’.

Air-to-air heat pumps are sometimes referred to as air conditioning. While many people think of air conditioning as a way of cooling buildings, it can also be used for heating.

An air-to-air heat pump does not heat water, so you will need to consider another way of heating water for showering, bathing and hot taps.

Is an air-to-air heat pump right for me? 

In the UK, air-to-air heat pumps are not typically used for heating larger homes, with most domestic air source heat pumps installations using air-to-water systems. More often, air-to-air heat pumps are installed in smaller properties, such as park homes or flats.

There are a few things to consider when deciding whether an air-to-air heat pump is right for you.
