Heat Pumps are considered the most efficient and cost-effective heating technology in the marketplace. They are remarkably environmentally friendly and can drastically reduce your carbon footprint and energy bills. They offer an ideal way to heat your property and produce hot water whilst saving money and the earth’s precious resources.
All major associations that promote decarbonization suggest that heat pump technology is the most suitable solution combined with renewable energies to play an accelerator role in their purpose.
Heat pumps transfer heat from a lower temperature system to a higher temperature one, thanks to the refrigeration cycle that they perform in between. Heat is taken from a heat source, where normally the temperature is not controlled. The heat is transferred to the consumer, which will depend on the application. The heat pump can be used in a wide range of fields, from commercial to industrial size.
They are suitable for air conditioning, District Heating, industrial process (drying, washing, pasteurization, etc.) or to increase power generation. Heat pumps are used as an alternative to traditional boilers and electric heaters to produce heat energy, as the efficiencies that they can achieve are higher when there is a suitable heat source available.
