Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are designed to move warm air in, opposite to the direction of spontaneous heat flow, by absorbing heat from a cold space and releasing it to a warmer one and vice-versa. From ground source, air source to exhaust heat pumps, at PTS we can provide a range of heat pump solutions for the home.

Ground Source

A ground source heat pump is more suited to new build properties where it can be incorporated into the design of the building and is a popular choice for off mains gas areas. A property with a large amount of land can take advantage of using a ground pipework system one metre under the ground. If this is not available, a vertical borehole can be used, however this is more of a specialist application.

Air Source

Air Source Heat Pumps use the outside air as an energy source. The heat extracted is then converted into a useable heat which can be used within the property’s heating system or to meet the hot water requirements. An air source heat pump is located outside of a property and can be installed into new build and retrofitted into existing properties. They typically operate at temperatures of around 45°C and are suitable for low temperature heating systems such as underfloor heating, low temperature radiators or fan convection heaters.

Exhaust Air

Exhaust Air Heat Pumps are a one box, pre-plumbed Solarution most suited to new build flats, apartments and small houses. These units will not only supply your heating and hot water requirements, but also your mechanical ventilation, making them a cost effective choice when moving away from gas fired appliances. The system extracts air from the moist warm areas of the building such as bathrooms, kitchens and utility rooms. Heat is removed from the air and transferred to the heat pump before being discharged outside. The heat absorbed from the air is then transferred to a water based system that can heat the building and warm the domestic hot water.
