Air source heat pumps are a renewable heating source that are becoming more accessible and popular.
Air source heat pumps run on electricity taking heat from the outside air, increasing the temperature through a compressor, and powering heating and hot water. Luckily for Scotland, warm weather is not needed as the system still works when air temperatures are as low as -15°C.
They are energy efficient, and require no fossil fuels.
For over 30 years of working on the design, manufacturing and distribution of air conditioning and handling systems, combining high efficiency with minimal environmental impact, Clivet has developed solutions to ensure sustainable comfort and the well-being of people and the environment. Designing and developing year-round air conditioning solutions with innovative technologies are part of Clivet’s DNA, which means the company has always been ready for the future.
Clivet Air Source Heat Pumps
Heat pumps extract free heat from the outside air and use it to warm your home and provide the domestic hot water. They use a small amount of electricity to give a large amount of warmth, so reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. A good heat pump will be able to do this even if the outside air temperature was to drop as low as -20°.
Heat pumps provide a consistent, comfortable living temperature, reduce heating bills and lower carbon emissions. If the electricity comes from a renewables only provider then you are helping the next generation even more by leaving fossil fuels behind completely.
We looked at the various heat pumps that are available and chose Clivet because they offered that combination of high efficiency, great build quality and good value for money. They are a long established company who were one of the pioneers in air conditioning and heat pump design.
Clivet's latest range of domestic air source heat pumps, the Edge Evo models, go from the single fan 5kW Edge Evo 21 up to the 16kW twin fan Edge Evo 81, with higher output, 3-phase models available too if needed.
