Air source heat pump

Introduction to "Heat Pumps"
A heat pump is a device that uses a small amount of energy to move heat from one location to another. Air source heat pump operates on the basic principle of heat transfer. Heat transfer means that rather than burning fuel to create heat, the device moves heat from one place to another.

Heat pumps are usually used to pull heat out of the air to heat a home or office building, or they can be switched into reverse to cool a building.
Heat pump mainly consists of a compressor, fan (applicable to air to water) evaporator and condenser housed in a single unit.

If you know how an air conditioner works, you already know a lot of heat pump as both heat pumps and air conditioners operate in similar way.

Heat Pump Working Principle

Heat pump is a promising technology that uses the same mechanical principles as refrigerators and air conditioners to generate hot water. Unlike conventional electricity and fossil-fuel-fired water heaters, heat pump takes heat from the surrounding air/water/soil and transfer it to the water in the tank.
