The latest developments in heating and cooling technology are designed to counter changes in building regulations, which make it increasingly harder to install traditional heating devices such as gas-fired boilers. Heat pumps are an innovative technology which Airedale Cooling Services have been using throughout a range of our air conditioning systems in Bradford and elsewhere in West Yorkshire to produce both warm and cool air – this gives us a superior position to use the technology to heat water as well.
Heat pumps are environmentally friendly and energy-efficient because they extract naturally occurring heat for the benefit of a room or building. There are two types of heat pump systems:
Ground Source Heat Pumps
Pipes are buried in the grounds of a business where they extract heat from the ground all year round. This will supply heat to radiators, under-floor heating systems and hot water heaters.
Air Source Heat Pumps
This system will extract heat from the outside air, in temperatures as low as minus 15 degrees, and provide a constant delivery of low, but warm, temperatures.
There are two main applications for this type of heat pump:
- Air-to-pump system – Works via a wet central heating system and will heat large radiators and under-floor heating systems.
- An air-to-air-system – Heat is extracted and then circulated around a room or building using a fan system.
