What Is An Air To Water Heat Pump?

Air to water heat pumps take heat from the outside air and transfer it to a water-based system. The created heat can be used for space heating or as a hot water supply for the house. Air to water heat pumps are among the most efficient air source heat pumps on the market.
This type of heat pump works best in moderate climates. The efficiency of an air to water heat pump is most optimal at 7°C, as opposed to dry and cold locations, where outside temperatures fall below -20°C. Keeping the working principles of an air to water heat pump in mind, the decline in temperatures will affect the operating efficiency.

Is An Air To Water Heat Pump Right For Me? 

Air to water heat pumps are suitable for many types of homes and are the most common type of domestic heat pump, with millions of installations across the France However, there are a few things you should consider before deciding whether a heat pump is right for you.

  • Do you have somewhere to put it?

    You’ll need a place outside your home where a unit can be fitted to a wall or placed on the ground. It must have some space around it to allow a good flow of air.
    There are two types of air to water heat pumps: monobloc and split systems. A monobloc system has all the components in a single outdoor unit, with pipes carrying water to the central heating system and a hot water cylinder inside your home. A split system separates the components between indoor and outdoor units. Whether a monobloc or split system is right for you will depend on your budget and the space available.
    Monobloc systems tend to be cheaper and quicker to install and don’t take up as much space in your home, although they are generally slightly less efficient than split systems. The efficiency gain from split systems comes from some of the heat transfer taking place inside the building where it is warmer, resulting in less heat being lost.
    If you’re not limited by space inside your home, it may be worth the extra cost of installing a split system. Your installer should be able to talk you through your options and help you choose the design that works best for you.
  • How loud is a heat pump?

    The external unit for a heat pump is identical for both monobloc and split heat pumps. Noise is created by large fans moving air across the heat exchanger.
    Unless the heat pump is working very hard (ie in cold weather or producing high temperature water), you can expect the noise to be a similar volume to a fridge, if you were standing within a couple of metres. You could easily hold a normal conversation next to it, without raising your voice. As it gets colder outside, this noise will increase while it’s operating, but should still allow you to hold a conversation easily, only raising your voice a little.
    The inside unit for a split system only contains valves and pumps and makes very little noise at all.#
  • What is the lifespan of an air to water heat pump?

    Air to water heat pumps have a long lifespan, and with proper maintenance, they can be operational for up to 20 years. What’s more, is that most air to water heat pumps have 5-year warranties. With several technological developments modern heat pumps are able to work efficiently for close to 25 years before they need replacing.
  • Difference pompe a chaleur air eau et air air

    Air source heat pumps work by extracting warmth from the outside air and using it to heat your home. They can do this even at sub-zero temperatures, so can be relied on all year round.
    There are two types of air source heat pump, air-to-air and air-to-water.
    Air-to-air heat pumps, commonly known as air conditioning, provide space heating by blowing warm air into your home.
    Air-to-water heat pumps heat radiators, underfloor heating and hot water in wet central heating systems.
    Each system has its pros and cons, but they also have a lot in common.
  • How Efficient Are Air To Water Heat Pumps?

    Air-to-air and air-to-water heat pumps both rely on electricity but they’re still much more efficient than traditional heating systems.

    Using a condenser, heat exchanger and refrigerant, they’re able to produce far more energy in heat than they use in electricity.

    The efficiency of heat pumps is measured by what’s known as the Coefficient of Performance (CoP). Typically, air-to-water heat pumps have a CoP of around 3, which means they generate three units of heat for each unit of electricity used.

    The CoP varies according to the external temperature, becoming less efficient when the weather is really cold. However, air source heat pumps do perform strongly all year round and have proven popular in colder climates including Scandinavia.

    To get the most out of a heat pump, it’s vital that your home is well insulated and the unit is correctly sized for your property. As long as it’s installed correctly, it will help you reduce your energy bills and carbon footprint.



Air To Water Heat Pump Price

The price of an air to water heat pump varies depending on the size of heat pump, the size of the property, whether it’s a newbuild or an existing property, as well as whether you need to change the way you distribute heat around your property. Typical costs are around 8,000€ to 12,500€, and we recommend speaking to at least three installers to provide a quote for your heat pump system to give you the best idea of likely costs for your home.

  • Factors to Consider Before Installing an air to water heat pump

    When thinking about installing air to water heat pumps, one must consider three main factors:
    Costs: The cost of installing an air to water heat pump is usually between €8,000- €15,000. Additional costs may be incurred depending on the chosen system type (whether you need cooling in combination with heating), the size of your property, and your specific requirements. 
    Insulation: To have high returns in terms of saving, it is important to have a well-insulated home, particularly with loft insulation. This ensures that the heat generated within the home does not escape, thus allowing for a consistently warm home during the winter.
    Installer: Finding the right installer is very important to ensure the heat pump is installed correctly. You should do your due diligence, such as checking if the installer has the necessary accreditations, a positive track record, and that you are being given a fair price.
  • What are the conditions for installing a heat pump?

    The unit must be placed away from drafts;
    It must be far from neighbors (because of the noise);
    It must have enough space;
    The distance between the outdoor unit and the indoor unit should not exceed 20 meters.
  • Can I install an air to water heat pump myself?

    Can I install an air source heat pump myself?
    You can't fully install an air source heat pump yourself. Although you can potentially place the external unit, you'll need a trained professional to connect it up to the internal components and to set up the heating system as a whole.
    You can't fully install an air to water heat pump yourself. Although you can potentially place the external unit, you'll need a trained professional to connect it up to the internal components and to set up the heating system as a whole.
  • Can air to water heat pumps use existing ducts as well?

    Yes! If you already have a central forced air system in your home, an air to water heat pump system still works! In this situation, you'd have the same outdoor condenser unit, but the indoor air handler would connect directly to your ductwork

Entretien Pompe A Chaleur Air Eau

Like all heating and cooling systems, proper maintenance is key to efficient operation. The difference between the energy consumption of a well-maintained heat pump and a severely neglected one ranges from 10% to 25%.

Clean or change filters once a month or as needed, and maintain the system according to manufacturer's instructions. Dirty filters, coils, and fans reduce airflow through the system. Reduced airflow decreases system performance and can damage your system's compressor. Clean outdoor coils whenever they appear dirty; occasionally, turn off power to the fan and clean it; remove vegetation and clutter from around the outdoor unit. Clean the supply and return registers in your home, and straighten their fins if bent.

  • How much does it cost to maintain a heat pump?

    You can choose a flat-rate contract or a one-off service. On average, the cost varies between €180 for a one-time visit and €250 for an annual contract . Compare quotes to select the best one for your situation.
  • What happens if you don't clean your heat pump?

    Most of the time, the heat pump in your home will continue to operate by all appearances 'normally', however dirty they are inside. The unit will be operating inefficiently and could be spreading unwanted airbourne particles around your home if it is left unclean.
  • Can you clean your own heat pump?

    The Heat Pump runs on electricity so extreme care must be taken when cleaning. Sprsun do NOT recommend cleaning your own machine, and if you are not an electrician, or trained HVAC specialist, we advise you call a professional cleaner, or contact us for a clean, help or advice.
  • How often should an air to water heat pump be serviced?

    What Does Air Pump Heat Source Servicing Entail? Most heat pumps will be able to operate efficiently with only yearly checks by the owner, and regular checks from a professional installer every 3 to 5 years.

Air To Water Heat Pump Versus

Chaudiere Gaz Ou Pompe A Chaleur Air Eau

One question that is cropping up more and more among us is what the difference is between a heat pump and a heating boiler (after all, their names sound quite similar) and which one is a better choice. 

  • Air to water heat pump vs boiler

    Distribution system

    Heating boilers work with radiators, coils or radiant flooring.
    Heat pumps can work with air ducts, radiators or radiant flooring. However, a heat pump can only cool your home efficiently when you opt for air duct distribution.

    Energy source

    Heating boilers can work with any type of existing conventional energy source (oil, natural gas, propane, electricity, biomass pellets).
    Heat pumps use electric energy and refrigerant for power. To do their job, they move heat energy stored in air, water or earth.

    Space requirements

    A heating boiler requires only indoor space to do its job. There are two types of heating boiler mounting options: floor or wall-mount. But each will reduce the amount of available space in a room by the size of the unit (suitcase-sized), plus a safety perimeter.
    If you want your heating boiler to provide hot water as well, you have two options: a traditional hot water tank or a smaller combi-boiler that connects to the water mains to bypass the need for a tank.
    A heat pump requires both indoor and outdoor space. The indoor unit is typically quite compact and can be mounted higher on a wall to save space.
    The outdoor space required varies by type of heat pump. The air-to-air heat pump needs only a similar amount of space as a traditional outdoor air conditioner component. The water-source requires access to a nearby pond with pipes running between the water and your residence.
    The geothermal heat pump has a system of pipes that can be run horizontally or vertically depending on space availability.

    Energy efficiency

    Well-maintained modern heating boilers can easily provide up to 98.5 percent AFUE (energy efficiency).
    But the heat pump blows away even this near-perfect rating. Because heat pumps recycle heat energy from the air, water or ground, a modern heat pump can achieve up to 400 percent efficiency.

    Installation complexity

    Typically, a heating boiler system is relatively easy to install. The one exception is if you need to install a distribution system or retrofit/repair your existing distribution system.
    An air-to-air heat pump that is ducted or ductless is also relatively easy to install.
    A water source or geothermal heat pump, on the other hand, can be invasive to the surrounding land or water because a piping system must be laid down.


    Heating boilers need to have at least a once-annual inspection and servicing to maintain energy efficiency.
    Heat pumps can go for longer without inspections and maintenance, although annual is still recommended to prevent any minor issues from becoming larger, more expensive ones.

    Upfront investment

    Heating boilers are nearly always less expensive up front than heat pump systems regardless of type.
    Government-funded rebates and credits are often available for upgrading to either a heating boiler or a heat pump system.
  • Do I have to replace my gas boiler from 2025?

    No, Gas boilers will not be banned from 2025. It is likely however, that new build properties from 2025 will not achieve the 75% - 80% carbon reduction targets they have been given with a gas-fired boiler.
Pros and Cons of Air To Water Heat Pump
As most France homeowners have relied on gas boilers for most (if not all) of their lives, asking them to switch to completely new heating technology is a big ask. If you have an old gas boiler which needs replacing and are trying to decide whether to replace it with a new gas boiler or an air to water heat pump, this article will help you in your decision.

It also acts as a thermostat and control panel.

Benefits of split
1, More outdoor space
2, Flexible installation

Disadvantages of split
1, Complicated installation
2, Less indoor space
3, More expensive
