4) Work In Low Ambient Temperatures

Air Source Heat Pumps can extract heat from the surrounding air even with the temperature as low as -25°; in these sorts of climates conventional heaters would struggle.
Of course, in the U.K. it would never reach as low as -25° but it does mean throughout the colder months of the year your ASHP will still work at an efficient rate.

5) Conserve Space

The Air Source Heat Pump outdoor unit has a small footprint so it can be installed in small gardens, all they need is a bit of space for the platform upon which the unit is mounted.
The only other part of the system is the cylinder, no boiler is required so you have more internal space.
