Heat Pump Information

Heat Pumps Installers UK – Fully Accredited

Heat Pump technology should always be considered for any new build project and a very worthwhile investment for any existing property that is well insulated. Against the backdrop of rising Global energy demands and falling oil reserves, energy prices are rising. Electricity prices have risen at a rate of about 10% a year since 2005 and are expected to keep rising at a similar rate over the next few years. Gas prices have risen even faster.

How Do Heat Pumps Work?

A heat pump is a specially designed piece of technology that allows heat energy to be transferred from one area to another. It does not actually produce the heat itself (a common misconception) and requires some energy input to run, but the amount of energy required to power a heat pump is comparatively very low to the amount of heat energy that it transfers, which is why they are generally regarded as being one of the most energy efficient heating systems available.

Different Types of Heat Pumps

There are several different classifications of heat pump, each tapping into a different energy source to provide warmth inside the property. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are the two most commonly installed types. As the names suggest, the air source variety taps into the heat energy in the air that surrounds the exterior of the property, while ground source pumps extract heat energy that is located underground. Normally it is possible to integrate a heat pump into an existing system, so you don't have to have brand new radiators or a new water heating system fitted, which would require a considerable investment.

Heat Pump Water Heaters

Heat pumps are widely used for providing energy for heating your home however they can also be used to provide either a stand-alone hot water system or combined with an existing heating system. Using the energy from the ground or the air, the heat pump moves the heat into your home much more efficiently than having to generate the heat itself using a conventional water heating system.

Heat Pumps Running Costs

Heat pumps are an exciting alternative to conventional boilers and furnaces, but they can be a significant investment and require a little research when it comes time to replace your old heating system or install one in a new construction. To understand the pros and cons of different heating and cooling options it is important to work with an HVAC contractor you can trust and one who is experienced with the wide variety of systems on the market today.
