Heat pumps

Heat pumpsare modern devices that allow you to heat your home and domestic water.They are systems that use energy from renewable sources such as air, water or ground. Heat pumps are environmentally friendly, as they do not emit flue gases or other pollutants and reduce the operating costs of the heating system.

How does a heat pump work?

.

A heat pump is a device that transports air energy from outside (e.g., air, water or ground) to the heating system located inside the building. The heat pump uses 75% natural resources and only 25% requires electricity for its operation. Such a system can be a stand-alone heat sourceas well as cooperate with other heating systemsand, for example, an oil boiler, gas boiler or solid fuel stove.

Types of heat pumps - what is worth knowing about them?

.
  • Air source heat pumps that isthe most common type of pump. They use heat energy extracted from the air outside the building. They can operate in two variants. Heat pumps air-to-air take heat from the outside air and transfer it to an indoor air cycle, such as an air conditioner or recuperator. Heat pumps air-to-watertake heat from the air but transfer it to a water system, such as radiators, underfloor heating or a hot water storage tank
  • .
  • Water heat pumps - extract heat from water, such as from a lake, river, well or reservoir, and transfer it to the water system. Such pumps are very efficient, but require special installations and direct access to the water source. 
  • .

Ground heat pumps - extract heat from the ground, such as with a horizontal collector or vertical probe. This is a veryefficient and stable solution, but the initial investment costs are very high.

Most advantages of heat pumps

.
  • Ecology - heat pumpsdo not burn fossil fuels, do not emit carbon dioxide or other harmful substances, and use renewable energy sources. By using such heating systems, you protect the environment.
  • Saving -Heat pumps use much less electricity than traditional heating systems, so your electricity bills are lower. It also happens that the pumps can be financed by various subsidy programs, so the cost of the investment is much lower.
  • .
  • Comfort - heat pumpsprovide a constant and even temperature throughout the house, without sudden spikes and dips. Some heat pumps can be responsible not only for heating, but also for cooling rooms. 
  • Safety -these systems are completely safe - no storage or transportation of fuels, no open flames or embers, no odors or dust.
