COMMERCIAL HEATING - Our Technology
Renewable Heat Pump Technology is the Answer
The simple design of our heating systems uses proven heat pump technology to harness renewable energy from the air, ground or water, providing maximum heat for minimal energy.
Able to deliver up to 5kW of heat for every 1kW of electricity consumed, our heat pump heating systems offer as much as 500% efficiency and a COP of 5 - making them an ideal renewable heating solution.
How heat pump technology works
Our heating systems require only a small amount of electricity to upgrade and move heat from one location to another. The heat is upgraded to a higher temperature using the refrigerant cycle and is then used to deliver efficient heat to any building via a ducted air or wet system.
- Compression: Refrigerant in it's vapour state is compressed, forcing it to occupy less space. This heats the vapour to temperatures of 75ºC to 80ºC.
- Condensing: The hot pressurised refrigerant vapour is then passed through a heat exchanger. The vapour is condensed into a liquid and the heat generated is transferred to heat the air and/or water that is used within the building.
- Expansion: The cooled refrigerant liquid is then passed through an expansion valve which reduces the pressure on the refrigerant allowing it to return to it's normal state.
- Evaporation: Liquid refrigerant is passed through a second heat exchanger. Because refrigerant has a very low boiling temperature (as low as -50ºC), the refrigerant evaporates, absorbing heat energy from the surrounding environment. This can be air, water or the ground.
