Installing a heat pump has the potential to save you money on your energy bills. Heat pumps are an energy-efficient way of managing the temperature inside your home. In fact, you may be surprised at how much money you can save in the long-run by installing a heat pump.

Air-source heat pumps comprise of a condenser on the outside of the home and an air unit inside the home.
Heat pumps can save you a lot of money because of the way they work.
To heat your home efficiently, the heat pump takes heat from the air outside your home and passes it through coolant. This compresses the coolant to increase the temperature. The warm air is the then used to heat your home.
Heat can even be extracted from the outside air when it is below 0°C! Of course, in very cold temperatures the heat pump can’t work as effectively.
To cool your home, the process is reversed.
