AIR TO WATER HEAT PUMPS
FOR RELIABLE COST SAVING & EFFICIENCY
A Co-Efficient of Performance (COP) is a ratio of heat energy produced compared to electrical energy consumed by an appliance. The higher the COP, the less energy is consumed to produce the same amount of heat. A comparison of COPs shows that electric heating has a COP of 1; meaning for every 1kW of energy consumed only 1kW of heat is produced. Gas heating is even lower at 0.85, which means for every 1kW consumed only 0.85kW of useful heat is produced. Hot Water Heat Pumps are extremely energy efficient and can achieve COPs between 3-4, meaning they can produce 3-4kW of heat for every 1kW consumed. As no fossil fuels are directly burnt in the operation of a heat pump, CO2 emissions are also greatly reduced in comparison to gas or oil-fired boilers. Pool heat pumps can achieve a COP of up to 8 depending on temperature requirement..
How Do Hot Water Heat Pumps Work?
Hot Water Heat Pumps work on a similar principle to a refrigerator; they are able to absorb energy from the surrounding outdoor air and transfer this energy into a refrigerant. The heat energy is upgraded using a refrigerant cycle and this renewable energy is transferred into the water. The R410A refrigerant used has zero ozone depletion potential. This refrigerant allows useful heat energy to be absorbed even when the outdoor conditions drop below freezing.
The heat from a compressor module is used for optimal efficiency. There are two types of hot water heat pump systems:
• A packaged system – which has the heat exchanger integrated with the outdoor unit and;
• A split system – which has the heat exchanger positioned right where the hot water is required.
Why Choose a Hot Water Heat Pump?
Hot water heat pumps are one of the most efficient ways to heat water all year round. A highly efficient inverter system utilising an environmentally friendly refrigerant allows the system to continue providing heat even in sub zero outdoor temperatures. According to the ERC, hot water usage accounts for up to 60% of a home’s annual power bill. Hot water heat pumps can provide energy efficient solutions for all applications where water is heated or cooled.
Hot water heat pumps offer the highest levels of energy efficiency with the ability to provide 3-4kW of heat energy for every 1kW used.
Weather compensation can detect changes in outdoor ambient conditions, allowing the hot water heat pump to adjust the water temperature. This ensures the right comfort temperature is produced without excess energy wastage.
Hot water heat pumps can be installed for a range of applications, from swimming pool and spa pool heating, to sanitary hot water, under floor heating and fan coil cooling.
Year Round Heating
Hot water heat pumps provide energy efficient water heating year-round, operating effectively in both high and low outdoor ambient temperatures.
Lowest Running Costs
The more energy efficient a heating system is, the cheaper it is to run. Hot water heat pumps offer the cheapest available kW/h rate for hot water heating.
Hot water heat pumps to supply hot water which delivers radiant heat energy to floor and potable water systems. Easy to use controls allow you to adjust temperature settings at the touch of a button.
There is no need to worry about furniture placement or wasting valuable floor space, as heat produced from a radiant floor slab warms evenly no matter how the room is arranged.
Hot water heat pumps are the perfect option when you have children and pets. As there are no hot surfaces, they are an extremely safe heating option
