Heat pumps

A heating system with an electrically driven heat pump in out- or indoor installation, combined with p.ex. the house own solar thermal or photovoltaic system, mainly consists of 3 parts:

-The heat source system, which extracts the required energy from the environment

-The actual heat pump, which harnesses the extracted environmental heat of ambiant air, water or geothermal

-The heat distribution and storage system that distributes or temporarily stores the thermal energy in the building

The air-water type heat pump has the advantage of consuming 1 kWh (kilowatt hour) of electricity for 3 kWh of thermal energy supplied at our latitude on an annual average, allowing the production of heat from solar electricity or other renewable energy sources for various thermal needs: swimming pool, individual or collective homes, commercial spaces and industrial buildings.
