Air source heat pumps

An air source heat pump could be the perfect solution for cutting the cost of keeping your home warm and cosy and reducing your carbon emissions. Their popularity is heating up too. Millions have been installed across Europe, including tens of thousands in homes throughout the UK.

Types of air source heat pumps

There are two main types of air source heat pumps: monobloc and split systems. Both do the same job in slightly different ways. These systems collect heat from the outside air and convert it into heating for your home.

Monobloc air source heat pumps

A monobloc air source heat pump system contains all the working parts in a single outdoor unit – “one block” as its name suggests. The pipes carry the water from the external unit to the central heating system, and to a hot water cylinder inside your home if you have one. Monobloc air source heat pumps are the quickest and cheapest to install, especially if space is limited.

Split air source heat pumps

Like it sounds, a split air source heat pump system splits its working parts between two units - one outside and one inside your home. Split systems cost slightly more and take up a bit more room, but they’re also more efficient than monobloc systems. Investing in a split system now can offer greater long term cost savings. Your installer can advise you if a split system is an option for your home.
