How It Works
Powered by Renewable Energy
Powered by 75% energy extracted from the air and 25% electricity, our air-to-water low temperature pumps heat and cool your home with A+++ energy efficiency. You can also combine your heat pump with solar support to increase your savings on hot water production.
A heat pump controls the temperature by transferring heat. There are three essential components to a heat pump: the outdoor unit (evaporator), the indoor unit(s) (condenser) and the refrigerant. The refrigerant transfers the heat as it circulates between the outdoor and indoor unit(s).
So what does it actually do?
- The evaporator extracts energy from the renewable source (air, water, geothermal or solar) by forcing the liquid to transform into a gas.
- The compressor compresses the gas, which raises its temperature.
- The condenser exchanges the heat from the gas to the heating system, and the gas returns to a liquid state.
- The expansion valve lowers the pressure of the refrigerant, which triggers evaporation and the cycle begins all over again.
