Air to Air Heat pumps

Air Source heat pumps have been used in Scandinavian countries for over twenty years as they are an incredibly efficient way of using the outside temperature to give heating and cooling within a building. They are often likened to air conditioning units due to their similar looks, but are in fact far superior due to their increased efficiency and ability to perform both heating and cooling functions.

Cost effective, low maintenance and aesthetically pleasing, Air to Air heat pumps can heat or cool up to 120 square metres allowing for many applications; open plan areas for business, classrooms, places of worship, loft and basement conversions or house extensions – in fact any open areas which require heating or cooling. The units also act as air purifiers and particulate filters using “Cluster Ion Technology”, they don’t dry out the air as air conditioning units do so are excellent for allergy sufferers and contact lens wearers alike!

Most installations are completed within a day or so and a 6Kw unit costs around 4 pence per hour to run (on maximum output). They are up to 500% efficient which is why they have become an excellent option for those wanting to reduce the pressure on their existing boiler and household bills.

Air to Water Heat pumps

Air to Water heat pumps work in much the same way as air to air, they use the latent heat in the air to generate heat, but have one big difference.

An Air to Water unit provides a plentiful supply of hot water thanks to a built-in hot water cylinder which makes it an ideal replacement for an old and inefficient boiler. They use a small amount of electricity and are in excess of 300% efficient which means for every kilowatt of electricity that is used the unit will generate at least three units of heating. These units are designed to replace traditional gas and oil boilers based on the principle that electricity will remain more stable and therefore cheaper in the long-term.

Air to Water heat pumps, when combined with PhotoVoltaic electricity, can generate the energy required for operation as well as supplying the base load needs.

Due to air to water units only needing electricity for operation, it makes it an ideal choice when refurbishing an existing property, replacing oil fired boiler replacements, new builds or areas with restricted mains gas. This is the ideal opportunity to upgrade to a proven, dependable and cost effective option.
