Air-to-air heat pump for home heating: free, environmentally friendly, safe

Today, new developments are becoming part of our lives. Manufacturers offer various modern devices from solar panels to heat pumps.

  • To save on heating and electricity, many people install air-to-air heat pumps.

This device is also chosen because of its ease of installation and operation. Heat pumps work like conventional air conditioners. Externally, the two devices are even similar. But there are differences. The pump operates year-round to heat the building. The air conditioner serves mainly in the summer to cool the air. A heat pump extracts heat from the air. However, some models can also cool the air in the room.

  • You will say that there are air conditioners that heat the air.

That’s right, but they consume more electricity than a heat pump.


  • An economical device will help you save significantly on heating. Consumption from 0.6 kW/h. Save up to 60% of energy.
  • If voltage surges occur, they will not break but will continue to function after the power is turned on.
  • No combustion products. The pumps are fireproof and do not require a ventilation system to remove gases.
  • To install a pump, you do not need to go to authorities and collect permits, as is necessary with gas boilers.
  • If you have solar panels, you can do without electricity. Then heating will be free.
  • Easy to install. The first part of the device is placed on the street (next to the house, on the facade or roof). The second part is mounted inside the house on the ceiling or wall. There is no need to install complex systems (for example, radiators or heated floors).
  • The pump does not emit harmful gases into the atmosphere.

Let’s consider the disadvantages and cost

  1. The lower the temperature outside, the lower the performance of the device. At a temperature of minus 25 degrees, the pump stops working. Therefore, you need to install a backup boiler. But recently, manufacturers have created a pump that can operate at temperatures down to -32 degrees. In the southern regions, the pump will be a godsend.
  1. Constant air movement moves dust around the room.
  2. There is some background noise when the device is operating.
  3. For a large cottage with several floors, it is necessary to make air ducts through which warm air will be distributed to all rooms.
