A heat pump is one of the most cost-efficient solutions for all your indoor heating needs. Using stored solar energy is also environmentally friendly. Water is the most common distribution medium in European heating systems.
Such systems are usually based on radiators and hydronic floor heating. The output temperature of the water distribution system is usually 30-35°C for floor heating and 45-55°C for radiators.
Around 20% of a heat pump’s energy consumption is used to produce hot water. It is essential that enough hot water is produced to meet the requirements of your home, so you need to ensure that you get the correct model of heat pump.
Because producing hot water accounts for an increasingly large proportion of your home’s energy requirements (water consumption is increasing while homes are now better insulated), it is essential that hot water is produced as efficiently and reliably as possible.
To maintain comfort, it is also important that the hot water tank refills and reheats quickly. Hot water must be produced fast so that no one needs to wait. And all this at the lowest possible operating cost.
Thermia has developed technologies that rapidly produce huge amounts of hot water without consuming extra energy: TWS – Tap Water Stratification and HGW – Hot Gas Water heaters.
With all heat pumps except air source heat pumps at this present time, it is possible to cool the building with passive cooling at a very low cost. This is because passive cooling requires no more energy than a pair of light bulbs.
Should passive cooling not be sufficient, Thermia heat pumps are able to produce extra, active cooling by using the compressor.
If you want an energy-efficient way to heat your swimming pool, consider using a heat pump.
You bought your pool for a number of reasons, such as family fun, exercise, entertaining and possibly even therapeutic reasons. However, you have probably found that without heating your pool is often too cold to enjoy, especially in spring and autumn.
