What Are Heat Pumps?

A heat pump is a mechanism that extracts heat from the ground, water or air, and then, with the help of an internal compressor, the refrigerant gets warmer at a higher temperature and then spreads the heat inside the home. In the summer, the cycle is reversed and the heat pump cools the house.

For instance, the refrigerator is a heat pump. It takes out the heat from its interior and eliminates it through the radiator installed behind it. The air conditioning is another common example of heat pump that removes the heat from the room, maintaining a constant temperature set by the user.

The heat pump is a good solution when it comes to combining cost savings and green heating solutions. This fully competent heating system requires only a small share of electricity, helping to reduce CO2 emissions and climate protection.

Heat pumps have unlimited applications, in residential, commercial and industrial sectors, and can serve homes, schools, factories, hospitals etc. They ensure the following:

  • heating of buildings through radiators, ventilators, under floor and wall heating systems
  • water heating for domestic use
  • heating the water in a pool
  • ventilation, dehumidification and fresh air intake, with heat recovery from the evacuated air
  • cooling buildings via fan coils and floor, walls and ceiling systems.
