Air source heat pumps (also known as ASHPs) use a natural source of heat – air – to produce energy. They absorb warmth from the outside air and convert it into heat.
Depending on whether you purchased an air-to-air or air-to-water heat pump, the heat that is produced can be used for an underfloor heating system, radiators, warm air convectors and to heat water. An air source heat pump can also be used as an air conditioner.
