How Can A Heat Pump Keep You Warm This Winter

The temperature in the UK is constantly cold during the winter, dropping to minus temperatures frequently over the chillier months of the year. You want to be able to stay as warm as possible as well as keep costs down. Keeping your heating turned off will keep your bills down, but will leave your home feeling like it's full of ice. It’s not nice to be in a cold environment, and it can be quite harmful to your health as well


One solution to help you save money and stay warm is to utilise a heat pump. Read on to find out more about heat pumps and how they can help keep you warm this winter.

What Is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is a piece of machinery that captures heat from the outside and moves it into your home. While it is powered by electricity, the heat it brings in makes it a very beneficial piece of technology to reduce bills. It also has the added benefit of not burning any fuel, so it does not harm the environment to use.


You can reduce your heating costs with a heat pump, as well as take advantage of less maintenance than boiler systems. And once it hits summer, you can also use a heat pump as an air conditioning system to cool your home down.

How Does ASHP Heating Work?

Air-source heat pumps (ASHP) work by making use of thermal energy that is already present in the environment. Thermal energy naturally flows from a warmer place to a colder place, but a heat pump aims to do the opposite of this. It works by making use of the relationship between pressure and temperature.


The gas in an air-source heat pump is called a refrigerant, and a heat pump uses electricity to compress this refrigerant. This increases the pressure and the temperature of it. This heat is then transferred through your home through a heat exchanger. Once it does this it goes back through an expansion valve to the outside, where it has now cooled and can absorb even more heat from the outside.


Essentially the process brings in low-temperature heat and lets out high-temperature heat into your home.
