Air source heat pumps are a great way to manage the temperature in your business premises because they can heat or cool rooms very quickly and efficiently. But did you know that installing an air source heat pump can also help you to manage your resources? If you run a small business (such as a start-up), you probably have somewhat limited funds and space. You may even have limited quantities of essential equipment and stock. It might seem surprising, but opting for an air source heat pump instead of an alternate heating and air con system can help you make the most of the resources you do have. In today’s blog, we’ll explain how.
- Creating space
Unlike other systems, air source heat pumps can provide both heating and air conditioning. They utilise coolants to move thermal energy into or out of your premises, according to whether you want to increase or decrease the ambient temperature. Because they can provide both heating and cooling, you don’t have to install separate heating and air con systems if you opt for an air source heat pump. This helps to free up a lot of space. After all, it’s easier to make room for one system than two. If you choose to use an air source heat pump for heating and cooling, you should find you have extra space. Whether you choose to use it for storage or to expand your workspace is up to you.
- Keeping control of your budget
Affordability is one of the most commonly cited benefits of air source heat pumps. A single pump can provide 4kw of heat for every 1kw of electricity it uses. This means that heat pumps are much more efficient than other heating and air con systems and can help you save on your electricity bill. You can use the money you save to expand your business or invest in important office equipment.
- Protecting your equipment and stock
Computers and other pieces of office equipment need to be kept cool if you want them to remain usable over a long period of time. Similarly, certain types of stock need to be maintained at specific temperatures. Using an air source heat pump to keep your premises at the right temperature for your stocks and office equipment can help prevent that stock and equipment from breaking or becoming unusable. This will help your business function more efficiently. It will also save you money, because you won’t have to replace overheated items.
