Reduce Energy Use Without Compromising On Comfort
With one of the lowest heat losses on the market, the Fischer Compact Air Source Heat Pump takes heat from the air and boosts it to a higher temperature using a compressor. It then transfers the heat to the heating system in your home.
They work a bit like refrigerators in reverse.
Fischer has been manufacturing electric heating systems for over 75 years and in that time, we have gained considerable experience and a wealth of knowledge in how best to utilise sustainable heating systems. We understand that if we are to reach net zero targets, the way we heat our homes is not a ‘One Size Fits All’ solution.
Here at Fischer, we have found the perfect solution that offers customers the best of both worlds when it comes to sustainable, zero emission heating.
You can now enjoy all the benefits that an air source heat pump delivers – reducing your home’s carbon emissions and lowering your energy use – all while enjoying the same levels of comfort and warmth you currently experience with your existing heating system.
To combat the reduced temperatures produced by heat pumps, we are providing customers with our new ‘Warm Home Hybrid Package’ which includes an Air Source Heat Pump, a Dual Hot Water System with Buffer Tank and Fischer 40mm HeatCore radiators.
Working in conjunction with the heat pump, Fischer radiators bolster the room temperature quickly, heating your home effectively and efficiently resulting in you getting the warmth you need, whenever you need it.
One of the biggest benefits of the Fischer Air Source Heat Pump is the fact the hot water side of the system is completely independent from the heating side.
For this reason, you can switch off the external heat pump unit in summer, and just rely on the hot water unit inside the property, which operates independently as an Aquafficient Eco +
Heat Pumps are often criticised for making quite a lot of noise outside your home so having the luxury to be able to switch it off completely in summer, when you are most likely to use your garden means you can continue to relax and enjoy your outdoor space while reducing your homes carbon emissions.
Air source heat pumps use the same type of technology that keeps your fridge cold, but in reverse. A liquid refrigerant that has a very low boiling point is pumped on a loop between two heat exchangers. This refrigerant takes on heat energy from the outside ambient air temperature and turns into a gas as it warms up. This gas is then compressed back into a liquid, which increases its temperature further. The warm refrigerant then goes through a heat exchanger, which transfers the warmth to a separate body of water for circulating round the central heating system. During the final stage the liquid refrigerant goes through an expansion valve reducing the pressure and temperature and the cycle repeats.
