RENEWABLE ENERGY

Air Source Heating

Air source heat pumps from Worcester Bosch provide a sustainable and cost effective alternative for domestic heating and hot water solutions.

By converting the free and sustainable latent energy that’s in the air all around us into heat, the Greensource system delivers green, low-cost, energy-saving heating and hot water all year round and works very effectively in outside temperatures as low as -20ºC.

This advanced technology is well proven in Scandinavia and other parts of Europe. So it is very suited to the UK’s comparatively mild winters and is a highly efficient heating and hot water solution whatever the season.

The new Worcester Greensource range offers a choice of two systems: air to air or air to water, both producing significant savings compared with a conventional heating system.

Air to air heat pumps are an excellent choice where external space is limited as they require nothing more than a suitable outside wall. This makes them ideal for a wide range of property types, particularly those with open plan designs.

 

Heat is distributed evenly throughout the property.

 

Greensource air to water is ideal for low-temperature central heating such as underfloor but works equally with oversized radiators with flow rates up to 65ºC.

 

How Greensource air to water heat pumps distribute heat

 

How do air source heat pumps work?

The technology inside an air source heat pump works on similar principles to the way a domestic fridge works. Heat pumps take advantage of the principles of thermal energy in order to achieve their results.

Both types of air source heat pump operate in a similar way. The external fan unit draws in the outside air and converts the latent heat it contains on even the coldest of days into warm/cold air or hot water, depending on the type of heat pump.

 

How efficient are air source heat pumps?

When properly installed, an air source heat pump can produce up to 4 times more heat energy.

 

Why A Heat Pump?

An air source heat pump utilises thermal energy from the outside air to help provide domestic heat and hot water. It does this in the same way that a fridge extracts heat from its inside. It can extract heat from the air even when the outside temperature is as low as -20°C, it then converts this for use in a heating and hot water system.

 

Benefits of Air Source Heat Pumps

Air to Air Heat Pumps

The Greensource air to air heat pump converts the energy from the outside air into heat using the same technique as air to water heat pumps, and then circulates warm air internally to provide a comfortable temperature inside the home.

Where space is limited, Greensource air to air heat pumps are an attractive alternative for providing energy efficient heating as the only space requirement is an external wall, making them ideal for apartments and smaller homes.

As an extra benefit, Greensource air to air heat pumps can also operate as an air cooler and purifier using Plasmacluster Ion-technology.
