Heat Pump Air Conditioners Installers London | Kent | Surrey
Eco-friendly, energy efficient heating & cooling for your home
Most air conditioners that you see in shops and offices are called heat pump air conditioners. Heat Pump Air Conditioners provide environmentally friendly energy efficient heating and cooling.
Heat pump technology used in air conditioning systems is always evolving. All leading manufacturers are producing systems with increased performance and reduced energy usage, enabling both domestic and commercial buildings to enjoy the many benefits of air conditioning and alternative methods of heating.
Air to air heat pumps extract heat from the outside air, even on the coldest winter days. This heat, absorbed by a refrigeration system within the unit, is then turned into hot air by the indoor unit and distributed around the room.
Heat Pumps air conditioners are also able to provide cool air in the summer, and are therefore an ideal climate control solution for many commercial buildings. Due to their high efficiency, running a Heat Pump is more environmentally friendly than many traditional heating systems. Most of the systems we install are ran on heat pump technology and are manufactured by well known brands such as Daikin, Mitsubishi and Hitachi.
Advanced filter solutions bring good news for allergy sufferers as the system actively cleans the air with up to seven stages of filtration on some models.
Benefits of installing a Heat Pump include:
Increased energy efficiency
Unlike conventional fossil fuel boilers, heat pumps absorb FREE energy (heat) from the outside air and converts it into an environmentally sustainable usable heat for your business or home. Many offer efficiency gains on the order of 3:1 to 5:1. 1kW of electricity consumption generates 3kW to 5kW of renewable heat throughout the year therefore heat pumps can considerably reduce your energy consumption. The most energy efficient heat pumps are A or A-A Label for energy consumption on both heating AND cooling.
Heat pumps do have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the air is constantly being renewed. It is therefore considered to be a renewable heating solution.
Heat pumps are sleek and stylish and blend in effortlessly with their surroundings. We can install a range of wall mounted, floor standing and concealed ceiling units to suit any interior. The units are almost unnoticed in operation, maintaining the perfect living and working conditions.
Different types of indoor units – wall mounted, concealed ceiling, floor standing – in different capacities can be mixed together if needed, allowing the ideal indoor unit to be selected for different areas.
Many heat pumps have movement sensor functions which enable the system to switch to an energy efficiency mode if the room remains unoccupied for more than 20 minutes. When the room is occupied, the system restores the original setting. This type of function can reduce energy usage by up to 30%.
Duel function: Heating AND Cooling
The same systems used to heat a space can also be used to cool, resulting in simplicity in operation and maintenance. Functions such as “auto-start” allow systems to automatically restart in the setting in operation following a power failure. Many heat pumps provide 7 day schedule timers, enabling daily or weekly programming.
Reduction in carbon emissions –
A heat pump collects CO2 emission-free solar energy . By chosing a heat pump you are choosing to be a part of the solution for a better climate.
Modern heat pumps are extremely quiet in operation. The outdoor units can run in silent mode to ensure a quiet environment for the neighbourhood.
Many heat pumps have comfort modes to ensure draught free operation. In some cases, air flow is sent to the area in a room where no person is detected.
Multi system heat pumps allow up to 9 indoor units to operate from one single outdoor unit, thereby reducing installation space and costs. All indoor units can be individually controlled and do not need to be installed at the same time. Extra units can be added later.
Reduced VAT rate of 5% for domestic installations!
Households are responsible for 25% of all emissions. As part of ongoing efforts to reduce emissions, the overnment has reduced VAT on air source heat pumps for domestic heat pumps for domestic applications to 5% on equipment and installation. For more information Click Here
