Air Source Heat Pump installations and repairs
Clarity Heating are leading heating engineers in the East of England and are constantly striving to deliver the best possible service to our customers.
Our experienced engineers can provide expert information and advice if you are considering an air source heat pump. We can tailor the installation to your requirements, including installations in new builds, retrofit and hybrid systems. At Clarity Heating we have been installing air source heat pumps since 2015.
An air source heat pump works in a similar way to how a fridge extracts heat to cool your food, as it extracts heat from the outside air. The air then passes through a compressor to increase the temperature which feeds the heating and hot water circuits in the house.
This makes air source heating highly efficient, helping to lower your home’s carbon footprint. For every unit of electric used the pump creates 3-4.5 units of heat output.
Our engineer will measure and check existing radiators or underfloor heating during a site survey to ensure they are suitable sizes for the pump to work at maximum efficiency.
For an air source heat pump to supply hot water, a specific cylinder will need to be installed. These cylinders benefit from a larger coil size compensating for the lower temperatures the air source heat pump work at.
At Clarity Heating, we only install the very best boilers, control, and systems from manufacturers we trust and who make (in our opinion) units which are both efficient and long lasting.
