Heat Pumps

Simple but effective

Air and ground source heat pumps both work on the same principle: they exploit the low grade heat already in the air or ground and transfer it into useful heat for space heating or hot water. Heat can be usefully extracted from very low air and soil temperatures, well below zero degrees centigrade. Another way of looking at the process is to imagine a refrigerator working in reverse.

What is the advantage?

Heat pumps are a sustainable technology which consumes electricity very efficiently, using two to five times less energy than the most efficient condensing boiler. For each unit of electrical energy consumed you can generate between 2 to 5 units of heat and this is refered to as the coefficient of performance or COP.

Overview

  • Space and hot water heating
  • Highly efficient and practical
  • Produce 2 to 5 times or more heat than they use in electricity
  • Used for space cooling as well
  • Combine well with a Solar PV system
  • Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) applicable
