If you have your bespoke log cabin built by Log Cabins Scotland then why not also have installed our Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) solution that will provide your log cabin with much needed air conditioning for those hot summers and keeping your log cabin snug and cosy during those winter months, giving you all year round use of your bespoke garden shed or customised log cabin.
These pumps work by transferring heat from the outside air and moving that inside the house. Even when it feels far too cold for us in the outside air there is actually plenty of heat which can be extracted and pumped into the home.
An air source heat pump works exactly the same as a fridge in your house, have you ever noticed how the back of the fridge is very hot compared to the inside? This heat is heat that is being pumped from the inside of the fridge and pumped out into the room. An air source heat pump turns the inside of the room into the back of the fridge by having 'the inside' of the fridge placed on an outside wall.
All Air Source Heat Pumps are a great source of renewable energy, as they take heat from the outside air and not from the mains power supply, they can give out up to 5x the amount of energy they consume from fossil fuels, that makes the unit 500% efficient. Air source heat pumps have very low installation costs compared to any other form of renewable energy, they are 10x less expensive than ground source heat pump systems Air to Air heat pumps work as air conditioning systems when they are not being used as heaters.
