Heat Pump System Suppliers

A heat pump operates by extracting heat from one source, increasing its temperature using a compressor and heat exchanger, and transferring the heat to another location. There are several main types of heat pumps:

1. Air source heat pumps: These are the most commonly used type in Ireland and Europe.
2. Ground source heat pumps: These extract heat from the ground through horizontally or vertically buried pipework.
3. Water source heat pumps: These draw heat from a water source, such as a well.

Heat pumps perform optimally in well-insulated buildings with good air tightness. Typically, their installation includes a system of heating controls that can maintain a consistent temperature within the home.

Both the EU and the International Energy Agency classify heat pumps as renewable energy sources. They offer a means of heating without emitting carbon into the atmosphere. Over the next 30 years, the reliance on non-renewable energy sources for home heating is expected to decrease significantly.”
