AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMPS
OPC are huge supporters of heat pumps generally, whilst ground source heat pumps offer greater efficiency over air source heat pumps, the ground source solution is not for everyone due to space or the groundwork’s that are needed for heat pumps or the capital outlay being higher.
As a result, many people wrongly believe they are better off retaining their existing heating systems, air source heat pumps can save you hundreds of pounds on your annual running costs with minimal installation disruption.
Air Source Heat Pumps can operate with Co-Efficient Performance of approximately 3 to 1, meaning that for every kilowatt of electricity you pay for, you generate 3 kilowatts of heat.
This makes it at up to 3 times less expensive than a direct electric heating system!
Air source heat pumps are renewable energy systems that extract heat from the air to provide a complete solution for domestic hot water, which can be, where required, distributed via underfloor heating systems or traditional radiators.
Our range of Air Source Heat Pumps have been selected from leading, global manufacturers such as the Mitsubishi Ecodan.
