Air to Water Heat Pump
GES Mechanical are a Micro-Generation Certificate Scheme (MCS) accredited company and can provide you with a heat pump for every application in your home or your place of work.
Air source heat pumps are generally easier to install than ground source as they don’t require any excavations or drilling in your garden or land and can be installed where space availability is an issue.
They can be, however, often less efficient than a ground source heat pump but are still a very cost effective renewable energy source that is available to us at all times from the outside air.
An air to water heat pump uses the freely available energy from the air and turns it into heat which is then transferred to your radiators or underfloor heating system and it can also heat your hot water up to 55°C. These air pumps can be fitted on a new build or retro fitted to an older property.
The components of an air source heat pump are made up of an evaporator coil, a compressor, and a heat exchanger. The outside of a building is where the fan intake system (outdoor air handling unit) is fixed and requires no annual maintenance. The fan is the only moving part of the outdoor unit which also requires no on-going maintenance.
Whether you’ll need a back-up heating system for additional energy or water heating will be influenced by the heating needs of your home or workplace. There will be a small amount of electricity used to power the pump but this cost will be offset against the savings you make on your heating bill.
- It’s also worth noting that heat pumps can save you more on your heating bills if you’re replacing an electric, LPG or coal system, rather than gas.
