What better way to provide heating and hot water to your home or business than to extract it from the air, ground or even a nearby pond or stream!
What is a Heat Pump?
The idea of a heat pump heating system is to absorb thermal energy from a source, whether it be ground, air or water, and use that energy to create hot water and heating for your property. Heat pumps come in all shapes and sizes and require different amounts of grounds work and engineering depending on what option best suits your property.
How does a Heat Pump work?
Heat pumps use a small amount of electricity to power a fan or a pump to collect the thermal energy.
Once collected the heat is then transferred into the refrigerant within the heat pump’s evaporator, which in turn causes the temperature to rise, creating a gas state.
The refrigerant gas it then compressed using an electric compressor which reduces its volume and increases its temperature.
A condenser then extracts the heat energy from the now hot compressed refrigerant gas, transferring it to the water within the central heating circuit and hot water cylinder.
The refrigerant then cools, returning to its liquid state again and then ready to repeat the process all over again.
