How do heat pumps work?

A heat pump works by extracting energy from one place – the air, ground or water and transfers it to your business in an effective, sustainable way.

  • Air is blown across an evaporator, where heat energy from the air is absorbed by a sealed refrigerant circuit
  • The heat energy absorbed increases the refrigerant temperature and the refrigerant evaporates from a liquid to a gas, storing the captured energy
  • The refrigerant gas passes through a compressor where it is pressurised, increasing its temperature even more
  • The refrigerant gas passes into a condenser where the refrigerant cools and condenses back into a liquid, releasing the heat energy
  • The released heat is transferred into the building’s heating and hot water circuit
  • The refrigerant passes back through an expansion valve to begin the whole process again

There are a few different types of heat pump. But they all have one thing in common: they’re powered mainly by renewable energy, making them one of the most economical and eco-friendly heating solutions available today.

Advantages of renewal heat pumps
  • Help to achieve renewable energy targets
  • Provide high levels of efficiency, cutting running costs as well as co2 emissions
  • Are easy to design, reducing installation times and minimising disruption
  • Offer cost effective renewable heating, suitable for retro-fit or new build
  • Are fully scalable and able to work independently or in conjunction with other systems
  • Provide sanitary hot water
