Heat pumps belong to the category of energy-efficient and energy saving systems because of their capability to extract thermal energy. We have high efficiency air-water heat pumps (inverter) and production of hot water for heating/cooling. The heat pump (H/P) is a system which accordingly takes advantage either of the internal temperature of a building or the external e.g. in the summer it extracts the heat from the interior of a house and transfers it to the outside.
During the winter, the heat pump draws heat from the outside, as the cooling fluid (H / P) freezes in the external device (H / P), thus storing heat from the cold outer environment.
The heat that has been extracted is sent inside the building by the use of an under floor piping system. On the contrary, during the summer months the heat is pumped in an identical manner, from the interior of the house into the surrounding area in order to reduce the internal temperature of the building. The air-water heat pumps provide an economic and eco - friendly alternative heating solution.
Heat pumps are renewable energy units with high energy efficiency (energy class A), where the use of thermodynamics, provides more heat output than is consumed.
For example each 1Kw electricity spent to power the heat pump can produce up to 5Kw of energy in a well insulated building. This results in reduced heating costs of up to 60% while reducing CO2 emissions by 50% compared to conventional heating oil.
Heat pumps can be connected to
• Underfloor heating system
• air conditioning units
• low temperature radiators
• hot water tanks
In addition the above advantages, heat pumps can be connected to existing solar boilers and heat burners alternators for water heating e.g. in pools.
