Transform Your Home Heating with Croston Plumbing & Heating’s Air Source Heat Pumps.

What is an Air Source Heat Pump?

An Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) is a revolutionary system that transforms the energy from the air outside into heat for your home. This eco-friendly technology provides a sustainable heating solution, reducing reliance on traditional fossil fuels and household carbon emissions.

Our expert team at Croston Plumbing & Heating offers quality ASHP installation services across the North West. As trusted professionals, we also take pride in being Worcester Bosch accredited installers, ensuring not only the best in renewable technology but also the utmost in quality installations.

How Does an Air Source Heat Pump Work?

Air Source Heat Pumps capture heat from the outside air like a refrigerator working in reverse. Here’s a simplified outline of the process:

  1. Absorption of Air: The ASHP absorbs outside air, using it to heat a refrigerant, which has a low boiling point and converts to a gas at low temperatures.
  2. Compression: The refrigerant gas is then compressed, which increases its temperature significantly.
  3. Heat Transfer: The hot gas is passed through a heat exchanger, which transfers the heat to your home’s heating system, whether it’s radiators, underfloor heating, or warm air convectors.
  4. Condensation: After releasing its heat, the refrigerant becomes liquid, and the cycle repeats.

This process is highly efficient and can function in temperatures as low as -15°C, ensuring your home stays warm even during the coldest months.
