As a business, it’s important that you keep your staff happy – but before you do that, you have to make them feel comfortable. Whether you work in an office, restaurant, school or hospital, you’ve probably realised there is always someone complaining about the temperature – it could be the middle of winter or the height of summer.

The best way to keep your workforce happy – preventing them from nipping out for air, arguing over whether the window should be open or not, or cranking up the central heating – is an air source heat pump for heating and cooling.

An air source heat pump is an innovative addition to the arsenal of many air conditioning suppliers. Its clever design allows it to absorb the heat from outside and uses that warm air to heat your radiators, underfloor heating systems and even your hot water – saving businesses significant amounts of money on their energy bills.

While many businesses will be sceptical about its effectiveness in the UK where the climate is so cold, especially in the winter, there is no need to worry. Its smart technology – operating similar to a fridge that extracts heat from inside – allows it to gather heat from the air in temperatures as low as -15 degrees centigrade.

There are two options when it comes to air source heat pumps: air-to-water and air-to-air. Air-to-water systems distribute heat through your wet central heating, making them ideal for systems that fire out heat at lower temperatures over longer periods of time, such as underfloor heating and large radiators. By contrast, air-to-air systems produce warm air that’s circulated by fans to heat your business premises.

Every air source heat pump system last around 20 years, with an annual maintenance check recommended for all those that opt for this energy-saving form of heat supply.

If you’re looking to increase staff morale and productivity, and decrease your annual energy bills, I-HT can help.
