Making the right decisions when you start your small business can be the difference between failure or success. While choosing the right way to heat or cool your premises may not fall into that category, the right choice can save on your energy bills and provide effective cooling and heating all year round.

Standard air conditioning vs a heat pump

Air conditioning units and a split system heat pump effectively work in the same way. Heat is pulled from inside your premises and dumped outside, keeping your working environment both cool and productive. However, using a ductless split air pump system can be far more cost effective for your small business as the heat pump is capable of reversing the process in winter to heat your premises and keep your workforce comfortable.

Why using a heat pump is the savvy choice

Because a heat pump works by transferring heat energy from indoors to outdoors, your only costs are the electricity used to pump the refrigerant into the system. Yet the return on the energy investment can be enormous, with just 1kW of electricity transferring 4kW of heated or cooled air into your premises through a series of smaller air handling units that can be wall, ceiling or floor mounted without the need for ductwork.

The benefits of heat pumps for your SME

A heat pump can be ideal if you’re really starting from the ground up and investing in new build premises. Space saving and low on maintenance, you’ll not only save money on your energy bills but the system is modular to grow as your business grows. At I-HT Air Conditioning, we can rent you units that expand with your changing heating and cooling requirements.

By creating zones using a heat pump system you’ll have a granular level of control over the heating and cooling environment for different tasks. And with A/A energy ratings and environmentally friendly refrigerants, you’ll be reducing your carbon footprint and benefiting from potential tax breaks.
