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..
