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.
