In respect to our planets environment it is important to maintain a reduction in our carbon output, in order to do this the current objective is to reduce energy consumption within the buildings we use. Subsequently, this has caused a huge increase in the popularity of using heat pump systems as a dependency for space heating and/or hot water production.
Heat pump systems work by absorbing heat from either the ground or the outside air, heat is absorbed into a refrigerant gas and is transferred to either the water, which is pumped through the standard heating/hot water circuit, or the inside air through the use of a fan coil heat exchanger.
With heat pump systems, no heat is actually being produced, it is just being transferred from outside to inside, the only energy being consumed is the electricity used to supply the compressor, pump and fan coils. Manufacturers state that modern heat pump systems produce a COP (Co-efficient of performance) of up to 4.6: Every 1.0 KW of energy consumed, 4.6 KW of energy is produced.
