Saving money on your energy bills might seem like a real challenge. It can be without the right knowledge of what energy systems to use in your home. However, this post will assist you in an alternative way to heat your home, which can help you save money and live more sustainably.

You might wonder how exactly to achieve sustainability and money-savings when heating your home. The answer is an air source heat pump.
What is an air source heat pump?
An air-source heat pump takes in external air and uses a compressor to heat it up before releasing it into the home. They are a way to reuse natural sources and heat your home for less.
How does an air source heat pump work?
Air source heat pumps work by using a compressor to heat up natural air. Instead of using gas, they use natural air to heat the home.

The following steps will help you understand its process.

1. The air pump absorbs the outside air and turns it into liquid. The liquid is stored at a low temperature.

2. The air is then turned into hot air through compressing it, which is performed using electricity.

3. This heat is then sent to radiators and can be stored in a water heating cylinder. This stored heat can be used for showers, baths, and taps.

Although an air source heat pump uses electricity to work, it uses a lot less energy to heat the home than a gas boiler. It is a renewable and less expensive way to heat your home.
