What is an Air Source Heat Pump?

An air source heat pump is a low-carbon option to heat your house. It collects heat from a colder environment and transfers it to your house, raising the room temperature. Air source heat pumps resemble air conditioners in appearance. The size of your air source heat pump is determined by the amount of heat required in your house. Generally speaking, the larger the air source heat pump, the more heat it will generate. 

How Does an Air Source Heat Pump Work?

  1. Outside air is collected via tubes that contain a refrigerant; as the refrigerant warms up, it transforms from a liquid to a gas. 
  2. After that, the gas is compressed by a compressor, raising the pressure and generating extra heat. 
  3. The heated gases are compressed and sent via a heat exchanger surrounded by cold air or water. The refrigerant warms the chill air or water by transferring its heat, making it circulate around your house to provide hot water and heating. In the meantime, the refrigerant condenses back into a cold liquid, restarting the cycle. 

How to Run Your Air Source Heat Pump Efficiently? 

  1. Try to keep your house in insulation. The key to maximizing the effectiveness of the air source heating system is to ensure that your house is properly insulated. The insulation status must be taken into account before installation since the air source heat pump will function at a low temperature. Proper insulation helps minimize heat loss via the roof, walls, and floor. 
  2. Make sure the heat pump is appropriate sizing. Whether it’s too big or too small, the wrong size may result in excessive power bills and possible system problems. Therefore, it’s necessary to choose the correct air source heat pump size to prevent heat loss and produce the heat you require at the lowest outside temperature. 
  3. Use intelligent control.A heating system that lacks proper control can be inefficient in most cases and even unusable. To meet your demands, you can purchase a smart thermostat and timers. A wide range of heating systems is available on the market to meet all user demands at affordable prices, from the most basic to the very complicated, to reduce operating expenses. 

Where to Buy Qualified Air Source Heat Pumps? 

To purchase qualified air source heat pumps, you need to consider their characteristics, but most importantly, find a reliable air source heat pump manufacturer. Some small companies manufacture air source heat pumps in poor quality due to a lack of production equipment, technologies, and quality control members. As a professional heat pump supplier, NEWNTIDE has two production bases with 13 automatic production lines, 16 international labs with Intertek, SGS, Kiwa certificated, and 44 advanced material test machines.
