An obvious benefit of fitting a pump for your home is that it will reduce your carbon footprint. Unfortunately it requires electricity to power the pump, so it will still have some environmental impact, but the heat it extracts is an entirely renewable resource, so it is overall a very green system. It will earn you a return on your investment especially quickly if you are installing it into a house to replace an existing electricity or coal heating system. It also has negligible maintenance costs as it is a simple system with very few moving parts.

There are two types of air source systems you need to know about. The first is the air-to-water system, which gives off heat via your wet central heating system. These are suited to giving out heat at relatively low temperatures over a long period of time, so they are ideal for underfloor heating systems or large radiators.

The second type is the air-to-air system. This system heats your home by producing warm air which is circulated by fans. A drawback of the air-to-air system is not very well suited to heating your water.
