What is a heat pump?
Heat pumps operate like a domestic fridge in reverse, extracting free, renewable heat energy from the earth, water or air and upgrades that heat, via a compressor and a heat exchanger, before transferring it to a water heating system, typically underfloor heating or radiators. Watch a short video
The earth, water or air absorbs and stores heat from the sun and from the earth’s core. In the UK the average constant temperature of the earth at about 1.5m deep, is 11 to 12°C. A similar situation exists with underground water sources or large surface water sources. It is also possible to extract considerable heat from the ambient air at temperatures as low as -15°C.
They are a highly efficient, cost-effective means of providing space heating. The output heat energy can be up to 4 times greater than the electrical power input – something not possible with other methods of heating.
They work well with under floor heating systems in very well insulated buildings and can even be used radiators.
When set up and installed proficiently, your heat pump will be a great investment, especially with the RHI payments currently on offer.
