Air Source

Ideal for highly rated, energy efficient buildings, when correctly specified air source is a fantastic method of heating a space, absorbing heat from the outside air and using it to power radiators, underfloor heating systems, convectors or hot water. They can work in sub-zero temperatures, are simple to install, don’t require continuous deliveries of fuel and they can create income for your business as part of the RHI scheme.

Where they don’t work so well is with older buildings which are sub-optimally insulated and have significant heating leakage. The result here is that the electric air pump has to work much harder, negating the sustainability of the method and compromising your investment.

As with biomass systems, air source installations are relatively new to the UK. They also have their associated nuances, so they require expert planning from knowledgeable engineers and consultants, such as ourselves.
