Why choose a
air-to-air heat pump?
At Flowplus, we have a wide range of different heat pumps. One of these is the air-to-air heat pump. A popular heat pump with individuals. But why do a lot of people choose this type of heat pump? We list the benefits and concerns of the air-to-air heat pump for you.
How does this heat pump work?
This heat pump has an indoor and outdoor unit. The outdoor unit draws air by means of a fan. Then the compressor in the unit – which heats a refrigerant gas – starts heating the air. This air is attracted to the indoor unit that will distribute the warm air into the indoor space. By the way, an air-to-air heat pump can also be used for cooling, the process is then reversed.
When to choose an air-to-air heat pump?
There are a number of situations where an air-to-air heat pump is the best choice:
- If you want to replace your electric heater with a more energy-efficient and sustainable solution.
- If no central heating system is available. After all, a central heating boiler is not necessary.
- In small, well-insulated homes.
- When you also want air conditioning.
The benefits of an air-to-air heat pump?
An air-to-air heat pump is the cheapest heat pump on the market, which immediately explains part of its popularity. This pump allows you to both heat and cool, eliminating the need for a separate air conditioner. Installation is a breeze and no digging or breaking is required.
Still, there are some areas of concern. The efficiency in very cold weather is low. If your home is poorly insulated and you have large rooms, then an air-to-air heat pump is not really interesting. In addition, this type of pump cannot be connected to existing heating systems.
