What is an air-source heat pump and how does a heat pump work?

The most efficient air-source heat pumps are the so-called air-to-water heat pumps, so called because they extract heat from the energy of outside air and transfer it to the water. By contrast, air conditioning units (air-to-air heat pumps) extract heat from the air and transfer it to the inside through the air and they are unable to heat domestic hot water (DHW) and heating.

Thanks to the high performance of the different types of air-source heat pumps, we can multiply electricity consumption by 3, 4 and 5 (depending on the external conditions and the installation), i.e. with 1 kW of electricity consumed we can generate 3 kW to 5 kW of heat.

At Ecoforest we have focused our air-source range on air-to-water and monobloc style heat pumps to provide heating and hot water production, improving traditional heating systems.

One of the great advantages of the heat pump is the ability to heat, cool and produce domestic hot water (DHW) with the same equipment. The air-source heat pump extracts heat from the air in winter to heat the installation and to produce DHW; in summer, the air-source heat pump transports the heat inside the house to the outside, thus reducing the temperature of the house.

Air conditioning is a type of air-source heat pump of the air-air type, this means that it extracts energy from the air and transmits it to the interior of the installation by air, so air conditioning cannot be used in the form of heat with water-based systems, such as underfloor heating, radiators (nor in low-temperature radiators) and cannot heat DHW. In addition, air conditioning units are less efficient, more polluting due to the large amount of refrigerant they use, and more expensive to maintain.

The monobloc air-source heat pumps are of the air-water type, as they exchange heat with the outside air and transmits it to the inside by means of water. Monobloc refers to the fact that all the components of the air-source system are located in the outdoor unit.

This system is an improvement in energy savings and thanks to the water circuit, the water is perfect for heating radiators.

It is a type of air-source in which all the components of the heat pump are in the outdoor unit, making it a very compact and easy to install system. The indoor unit usually has different models, some more basic that consist only of the control screen and other more complex with hydraulic kits and even domestic hot water tanks.

The outdoor and indoor unit are connected solely and exclusively by water, in certain cases of more extreme external temperatures by glycol water to prevent freezing.

This heat pump is perfect for 200 m2, for 50 m2 and for 60 square metres.

Both systems use the heat pump technology, the only difference is the medium from which the energy is obtained, in the case of air-source energy it is obtained from the air, whereas in geothermal energy it can be obtained from the earth or water.

Heat pumps use energy to run the compressor, a component of the heat pump; however, this electrical consumption is minimal compared to the energy that is extracted, from the air in the case of air-source energy and from the earth or water in the case of geothermal or ground-source heat pumps. The heat pump can generate from 1 kW of electricity consumed up to 5 kW of useful thermal energy for the air conditioning of the house. Thanks to these high efficiencies, large savings can be achieved.

The monobloc air-source heat pump is a very compact air-conditioning system, so the technical room is very simple and small. The installation consists of an outdoor unit and an indoor unit. The great advantage of air-source energy is that it avoids duplicating systems, as it produces both heating and cooling.

Yes, air-source systems can include air conditioning, taking advantage of the capacity of the air-source heat pump to cool the indoor air during the warmer months.

Air-source heat pumps are efficient, use renewable energy and can provide heating, cooling and DHW all in one system.

When installing an air-source system, it is important to consider the size of the house, the heating and cooling needs, and the proper installation of the air-source heat pump.

The prices of air-source systems and air-source heat pumps vary depending on the model, capacity and specific features. It is advisable to consult specialised suppliers to obtain an accurate quotation. What capacity should an air-source heat pump have for a 50 m2, 60 m2 or 200 m2 house?

The capacity of the air-source heat pump should be chosen according to the size of the house and its specific needs. There are models suitable for different house sizes, from 50 m2 to 200 m2 or more.

Air-to-water heat pumps are a specific type of air-source heat pump that extract heat from the outside air and transfer it to water, making them ideal for heating and DHW systems.

Air-source heat pumps can be purchased through specialised dealers. Ecoforest, for example, offers a variety of models with different capacities and features.

Prices vary depending on the size and capacity of the system, but generally represent a higher initial investment that is offset by long-term energy savings.

An air-source system can be integrated into existing air conditioning systems by replacing or supplementing the existing heat source with an air-source heat pump.
