With innovations in the renewable energy sector frequently taking place, it can be difficult to understand the best methods for your home or business. For this reason we at Solar Tech are on hand to offer a wealth of trusted advice on numerous energy devices from solar panels to a heat pump. If you are confused by what is now available to you and your property, we are the team to call to ensure you get the most out of this new and environmentally beneficial technology.
If you are considering a heat pump to provide your property with renewable heat there are two different pumps to consider; allow us to take you through the features and benefits of both so that you can make an informed decision:
Ground Source Heat Pump
This heat pump works through taking heat from the ground and converting it in to usable heat for your property. The device transports the heat through refrigerants and for this reason is much like air conditioning.
The pump is incredibly efficient as it produces up to 4kW of heat energy from every single kW that enters the system. Not only can the pump heat your property, it is also capable of heating the water in domestic households.
Air Source Heat Pump
This type of heat pump works in much the same way apart from the fact that it derives heat energy from the air. The pump produces an average of 3kW of heat energy from a single kW, making it slightly less efficient than the ground source alternative however it does benefit from requiring less room than a ground source pump. The air source heat pump is the more cost effective choice of the two in terms of initial installation.
To get your property performing at its very best there are numerous aspects to consider from renewable energy technology to professional damp proofing Surrey; these elements come together to ensure your property is both energy efficient and in the best possible condition.
