In recent years, one of the main effects of climate change in the UK has been an increase in the unpredictability of our weather patterns. The weather has become more extreme and changes more suddenly than it used to, so every business needs to be able to cope with wild weather and unexpected temperature fluctuations.

As a result, it’s more important than ever to have an air conditioning and heating system that can maintain the temperature in your business premises, regardless of what the weather is doing. We believe that air source heat pumps are one of the best tools for managing temperature in an increasingly unpredictable climate. In today’s blog, we’ll explain why.

1. Joint functionality

You can use an air source heat pump for heating and cooling, instead of using separate heating and air conditioning systems. This makes it far easier to maintain a stable temperature in your premises, even when outside temperatures are fluctuating.

If you have separate heating and conditioning systems, you have to switch between them every time the weather heats up or cools down, just to maintain a steady temperature in your premises. In contrast, if you use an air source heat pump, you can use the same system and device to both heat and cool your premises, which allows you to respond to temperature fluctuations almost instantly.

2. Reliability

Traditional heating and air conditioning systems generate heat themselves or blow cold air to lower the temperature. Because both of these processes are quite energy-intensive and use a lot of different mechanical components (which are liable to break), they aren’t completely reliable.

In comparison, air source heat pumps use refrigerants to move thermal energy from the outside of your premises to the inside when you want to heat it, or vice versa when you want to cool it. Because heat pumps take advantage of the natural properties of refrigerants to do this, they are much more reliable. No matter how often you have to run your heat pump in response to changing weather patterns, it should continue to function for years. After all, refrigerants can’t break: they simply absorb and transfer heat in accordance with the fundamental laws of thermodynamics.

3. Efficiency

Air source heat pumps move thermal energy around rather than generating or reducing it. This is much more energy-efficient and, therefore, cost-effective. Due to the ongoing effects of climate change, you probably have to use your heating and air conditioning system regularly, so it makes sense to invest in a system that will help you to save money in the long-run.

Here at I-HT, we’re proud to provide our customers with reliable, energy-efficient air source heat pumps for heating and cooling their premises. If your business is needs to maintain a stable office or premises temperature despite the effects of climate change, get in touch with us today.

I can unconditionally recommend Inn-House Technology Ltd as a thoroughly excellent provider of all aspects of domestic air conditioning from initial contact, design development, through detailed site work to contract administration and on to maintenance. I speak as a hard-bitten Chartered Engineer and project manager who has probably seen it all; but Inn-House Technology has restored my faith that there is a British company which does it right to time, cost and quality. The initial site visit was by an experienced technician who has turned his hand to sales and was followed up by a further detailed visit with a staff specialist because the 4-unit multi-split installation is in a high-quality residence so that pipe concealment and silence in operation are crucial – and achieved. The two-man team left home at 0555 to arrive exactly on time for 3 consecutive days fully supplied with all the tools and plant required from their preferred but not exclusive partner supplier – Fujitsu. All indoor debris from numerous drillings was cleaned up as soon as it arose causing negligible dust- even embroidered curtains were kept in place. No shoes were worn indoors. The quality and fit of the pipework, cabling and trunking was exemplary and the indoor units were positioned exactly as specified. Outside, the wall penetrations and resealing of this Passivhaus were accurate and the heat pump connections neatly concealed by a black trunking beside a downpipe. The two installers, Jim and Sam, were professional, knowledgeable, personable, strong, agile and 100% committed to my job – not once stopping for lunch. The back-office handling of the sales, contract, procurement, invoicing and maintenance were each impeccable and the team are clearly loyal to their company which has strong systems to give quick response and confidence to the customer. The whole installation experience was an exemplar of how to run a company well and I have no hesitation at all in recommending Inn-House Technology.

Excellent and Faultless Experience with our Air Con Install. We reached out to I-HT among other Installers in the area, within a couple of hours they had made contact and arranged to visit to provide a quote within the same day. The quote was sent quickly and competitively priced. Lee who visited was very friendly and helpful and provided a good insight into what could be done and how with regards to our property. On install day we had 2 of their team pop out to complete the install and I can't explain enough how polite, friendly and considerate they were. Not only this but they were also very tidy and cleaned up behind them at every step. The day after I also had a follow up call from the office to make sure we were happy. overall 10/10 and can't believe how simple and perfect the install went. Thank you so much and look forward to recommending them to everyone in the future!
