Air Source Heat Pump Installed at Upcott House

Our EDF air source heat pump is now installed and providing us with lots of energy efficient hot water. It works by absorbing heat from the outside air in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can get heat from the air even when the temperature is as low as -15° C. Heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the air is constantly being renewed naturally. It is early days yet but we are hopeful that the pump will help us to lower our fuel bills and provide us with an income through the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). It has certainly helped us lower our home’s carbon emissions because we are no longer using oil or need fuel deliveries. Our pump is very energy efficient with a coefficient of performance (COP) rating of up to 4. This means that the heat pump produces 4 units of heat energy for every 1 unit of electricity it consumes. Within temperature ranges of -3°C to 10°C, the COP for our machine is fairly stable at 3-3.5. However in mild weather, the COP of
