A heat pump is a very efficient way of heating. For every 1 kW of electrical energy used they can output 4kW of heat energy out. Therefore, a heat pump can be 400% efficient!
The 2 main types used for heating properties are ‘Air Source’ and ‘Ground Source’ heat pumps. Air source heat pump – Is an external unit which exchanges heat from the ambient air
Ground Source Heat Pump - Is an internal unit which exchanges heat from the ground ‘collector’ pipework
Both systems then transfer the heat in to hot water for heating and hot water cylinders.
If you are ‘off grid’ without a gas supply, then this form of heating is a great option.
"Fantastic service, really pleased with our biomass and solar PV system. Our solar now heats up our hot water and hardly costs us a penny"
"Thanks for upgrading our solar PV system with optimisers, the system now outputs 30% more than it did before"
"We are very happy with our Biomass; the heating on site is now distributed to all our buildings, no more messing with oil breakdowns or unhappy tenants"
"The ground source heat pump you fitted for us is excellent! Very efficient way to run our barn conversion. We love our under floor heating that we can control from our mobiles!"
"The solar PV gives us free power to run the heat pump, great service would highly recommend Edge Electrical & Renewables"
