What Is A Heat Pump?

Discover The Best Heat Pump To Suit YOUR Needs.

A heat pump moves heat from one space to another. If you're not familiar with how a heat pump works... well, in fact, you are!

Right now, there are one or more heat pumps in your own home. They go by some very technical names, like refrigerator, freezer, air conditioner.

Think about what they all do. All three products move heat from one space to another. In the case of refrigerators or freezers, they move heat out of the fridge or freezer cabinet, dump it into your kitchen, cooling your food in the process. In the case of the air conditioner, the heat is pumped from inside your home to the outside air, cooling your home. So heat pumps are great at cooling spaces, but they're not just a one-trick pony. They can also heat.

A reverse-cycle air conditioner pumps heat from the outside air into your home in the form of hot air. A heat pump hot water system pumps heat from the outside air (or water, or ground) and uses it to heat water. Very economically. How? Well, a heat pump uses a little energy, to capture a lot of energy. A heat pump using 1kW of electricity could be heating as much water as a 4kW element. Technically, we'd call that a Coefficient of Performance (COP) of 4. Financially, we'd call it a saving of 75%! Yes, heat pump hot water systems can save you a lot of money- and reduce your carbon footprint.
