Report Description

The United Kingdom Air Source Heat Pump Market is driven by rising awareness about the adverse effects of greenhouse gas, growth in infrastructure development to cater the increasing population, along with various government schemes.

An air source heat pump is a device that uses outside air to convert into and hot water or air systems in the house. To generate heat water for the home's heating and hot water systems, an air source heat pump first takes heat from the outside and transforms it into a fluid. Even when the temperature drops to -15°C or even -25°C, the pump, which is located outside the house, continues to take heat from the air. It needs electricity to operate, but as it generates more heat than it uses electricity, it is more energy-efficient than typical heating systems.

United Kingdom Air Source Heat Pump market has been fueled by the rising need for heat pumps brought on by the expansion of the residential and commercial building sectors as well as government subsidies for improving energy efficiency and lowering carbon emissions. Additionally, because residential facilities have more affordable heat pumps, the demand has increased.

Due to their great energy efficiency and low carbon emissions, several governments are attempting to enact energy conservation legislation. To organize, monitor, and create energy conservation policies as part of its energy efficiency policy, the U.K. government established energy efficiency offices.

The COVID-19 pandemic restrictions were accompanied by new product launches and technological advancements that will propel the market's expansion. For instance, Daikin Europe recently introduced the Daikin Altherma 3 R, a high-capacity R-32 refrigerant split air to the water heat pump that provides household hot water setup in addition to cooling and heating.

A central heating and hot water system can use heat pumps, a relatively recent technology, to move heat from the earth or outside air around it. Compared to gas, they are far cleaner and more energy efficient.

Currently, gas boilers provide more than 85% of the household heating in United Kingdom. On the other hand, air source heat pumps, which are much more prevalent than ground source heat pumps, make up roughly 1% of the UK's heating systems and account for 2% of renewable heating. The UK government’s goal of net zero by 2050 is incompatible with this. An intergovernmental energy organization known as the International Energy Agency has urged for global action to outlaw gas boilers starting in 2025 and encourage the use of heat pumps in their place.
