How Do Commercial Heat Pumps Work
There are two primary types of heat pump, ground source and air source. Both heat pumps work by pulling heat from the source of heat, then transferring that heat into a heat exchanger. Air goes through a compressor, which causes the temperature to increase. This heated air is then transferred to the inside of the building.
Benefits Of Commercial Heat Source Pumps
Heat pumps are powered by electricity. The process of heating in a heat pump is a far more efficient way to generate heat when compared to traditional heat sources like furnaces or combination boilers.
There can be great savings on energy bills without the need for direct consumption of fossil fuels. This is great for lowering carbon footprints, which may also bring additional tax benefits to using such technologies, but these may vary depending on the location of the premises.
These systems are also better at distributing heat around a building. As the heat source pump warms rooms, it re-circulates heat that would otherwise be lost.
Heat pumps are incredibly reliable. Providing a system has been designed and installed by a professional company there will be relatively little maintenance required over the lifetime. This means a commercial heat source pump system can produce considerable savings in both energy costs and maintenance expenses.
The heat pump can heat or cool the building whether it is hot outside, cold outside, or simply just mild. Depending on the climate of the location a heat pump can regulate temperatures inside a commercial building all year round.
The Importance of Professional Design
Typically a heat pump system will be designed for a specific building. If you want to get the most benefit from your system then the design need to be done by a qualified design engineer. A proper design will include calculations based on the requirements for the building. This means taking into account things like the size of the space, the number of floors, as well as the location and the general use of the building. A factory facility spread over an acre is very different to an office building split over several floors, for example.
