technologies - air source heat pumps
heat pumps operate in a very similar way to that of ground source heat
the air source heat pump utilises a simple refridgeration cycle to
recover low grade heat from the surrounding air and raise its temperature to the
point where water can be heated to provide space heating and domestic hot water
the air source heat pump is very energy efficient and has lower
carbon emmisions when compared to conventional gas boilers.
to ground source heat pumps these systems compare very well being only slightly
less energy efficient than ground source.
triangle consulting engineers
have utilised airsource heat pumps to heat and cool
apartments and houses
upto large scale installations for offices and universities.
heat pumps can raise water temperatures upto 70 degrees centigrade although at
these temperatures their efficiencies significantly reduce.
succesfully combined combinations of ground source and air source heat pumps
together to heat and cool large buildings.
due to seasonal efficiencies
air source heat pumps are more efficient in summer than winter due to the
external temperatures, ground source heat pumps are more effective in winter
than summer, by combinng the two types the best efficiencies can be otained year
