Heat pumps are designed to extract heat from outside sources and then pump it into the property, in both residential and commercial settings. Doing so uses less electrical energy than converting electricity into heat. And during the summer months, the cycle can even be reversed so that the unit acts as an air conditioning system.
Main advantages to a heat pump system
1.Heat pumps are the most efficient alternative to oil, fuel and electrical systems when it comes to both cooling and heating.
2.They offer a greater heating or cooling capacity than the amount of electrical energy required to run them, with efficiency ratings of up to 300%.
3.Heat pumps are safer to use than combustion-style systems.
4.They are cheaper to run than even the most efficient gas or oil boilers.
5.Using a heat pump cuts carbon emissions and offers an efficient energy-to-heat conversion rate. A heat pump also reduces wasted energy levels.
6.Heat pumps require less maintenance than combustion systems.
7.Whilst an air-to-air heat pump may be a dedicated heat pump providing heat during the winter; split, multi-split and variable refrigerant volume (VRV) comfort cooling systems can also be thought of as heat pumps if they are able to operate in reverse and provide heating together with efficient cooling in warmer months.
8.Heat pumps have a lifespan of up to 50 years and are a reliable source of heat.
Heat pumps can be costly at the outset, but this expenditure is often extremely worthwhile as they tend to be reliable, long-lasting and cost-efficient.
Installing a heat pump to both heat and cool a building can also mean a lower initial investment, as well as simpler operation and maintenance procedures. It is also likely to mean that your energy bills will be considerably lower, while you benefit from consistent heating and cooling benefits throughout the year.
Within industrial or commercial settings, the latest heat pump technology will deliver unparalleled process efficiency in order to meet the precise business heating and cooling requirements, whilst at the same time providing ideal conditions for occupancy.
