How a heat pump works

Eco Incentive heatpumps

A heat pump is a device that harvests renewable heat energy from the sun which is stored in the ground or ambient air around your property.

Heat pumps are very efficient devices that typically convert 1kW of energy used to run the pump into 2-4kW of useable heat for your property all year round – something not possible with other heating methods. In contrast, conventional boilers convert 1kW of input energy into less than 1kW of output energy.

A heat pump uses a vapor compression cycle to enable low temperatures gathered from the ground or air surrounding your property and transfer them to a refrigerant.

The liquid refrigerant is then compressed causing it to change from a liquid to a gas which produces much higher temperatures. This high temperature gas is then passed through a heat exchanger that transfers the heat from the hot gas into the heating and hot water system for your property.

Even at very low temperatures, the vapor compression cycle can produce heat sufficient to provide your heating and hot water. Heat pumps are even capable of generating heat from outside temperatures as low as -20°c.

You can collect heat from the air, water, bedrock or the ground. Energy can be found all around your property and it is constantly replenished by the heat of the sun. We offer three different heat pump systems to capture that energy and heat your property. Our expertise will help you find the right one for you and your property.

Ground source heat pumps (GSHP)

Ground source heat pumps take heat from the ground, bedrock or water, converting it into energy which can be used for central heating and/or domestic hot water production.

Radiation from the sun heats the earth. The earth then stores the heat, just a metre or so down, at a temperature of around 8-12°c – even throughout the Winter.

A ground source heat pump system comprises of three basic elements; a ground loop, the heat pump itself and a heat distribution system. The ground loop is a pipe buried underground in either a horizontal trench or a vertical borehole.

By analysing the heat requirements for your property, we can identify which system would be most suitable for you.

Ground source heat pumps (GSHP) typically have an efficiency of around 300-400% and are emit very little carbon. For every one unit of electricity that is transferred, 3-4 units of heat is produced.


Air source heat pumps

Air source heat pumps require no digging or drilling. Instead, you retrieve energy directly from the surrounding air using an air handling unit.

The running costs of an air source heat pump is much lower than a conventional electrical heating system as the property owner only pays for running the compressor and the fan, therefore the majority of the energy supplied to the property is renewable and free. Heat pumps have a long life expectancy and maintenance costs are very low.

The heat pump can be located indoors or outdoors depending on which model you choose.

Air source heat pumps (ASHP) are relatively inexpensive and no drilling or groundwork is needed as opposed to ground source heat pumps. There is usually no obligation to report the installation to municipal environmental health boards.

What are the benefits of installing a heat pump?

Heat pumps are a sustainable heating solution because they use energy from the sun, which is in constant supply to heat your property.

For years, people all over Europe have discovered the benefits of heat pump systems. They have been developed and adapted for use in tough Nordic climates for decades and they are a reliable solution for your heating and hot water requirements.

Heat pumps are highly energy efficient and can cover a considerable amount, if not all, of your energy consumption using energy from your own land. This mean that heat pumps can generate a healthy rate of return by significantly lowering your energy bills.

A heat pump requires almost no scheduled maintenance or attention. It will work every day, all year round, making your property warm and comfortable, hassle free.

Heat pumps are also expected to last up to 20 years – much longer than an oil or gas boiler.
