Guide to air source heat pumps - Energy Saving Trust
Heat pumps work best at producing large amounts of low grade energy rather than small amounts of high grade energy. The COP resulting from generating high temperature water sufficient to supply radiators or DHW can fall to as little as 2 - 2.5, whereas the COP usually achieved in producing the low flow temperature outputs associated with underfloor space heating is likely to be in excess of 3
Can you install a heat pump in an existing home? | Viessmann
An air source heat pump is usually placed outdoors at the side or back of a property. It takes heat from the air and boosts it to a higher temperature using a heat pump. The pump needs electricity to run, but it should use less electrical energy than the heat it produces.
Air Source Heat Pump Output Compared To Gas Boiler Domestic ASHPs are typically available in the 4-15kW output range, compared to 12-30kW output for gas boilers. Heat pumps are most suited to installation in better insulated quality built homes that demand lower heat output.
