How an Air Source Heat Pump Can Improve Your Energy Efficiency

Now more than ever, people are becoming more aware of how their actions are impacting the environment and are taking steps to become more energy efficient. If you are looking to become more energy-efficient, one of the best ways that you can do so is by changing the energy that you use in your home. Many people who want to become more energy efficient while at home have installed an air source heat pump. A heat pump works by transferring heat that is absorbed from the outside air to an indoor space. This heat can then be used to heat your house and provide hot water. An air source heat pump is much more energy-efficient for a number of different reasons. Keep reading on to find out how this solution can improve your energy efficiency.

Lowers your carbon footprint

One of the biggest benefits that comes with using an air source heat pump is that they are a form of low carbon heating, as they use air from outside to heat your home. If you are switching from a coal or electricity-based heating system to an air source heat pump, you will significantly reduce your carbon emission and will therefore reduce your carbon footprint and the impact that you have on the environment. When using a heat pump to heat your house, for every 3 to 4 units of energy produced only 1 unit of electricity is used. This proves that using an air source heat pump is more energy efficient and also makes it a far better alternative if you are looking  to reduce your carbon emissions.

Have a high seasonal coefficient of performance

Air source heat pumps are efficient both in the winter and summer, due to their seasonal coefficient of performance (SCOP). The COP of an air source heat pump is a way to measure its efficiency by comparing the power input needed to produce heat to the amount of heat output. This COP can be adjusted seasonally, meaning a heat pump can help you to be more energy-efficient all year round. This is something that we should all be aiming to do both at home and in our professional lives.
