Heat pump technology is a fast growing market in the UK for businesses looking for a long term, economical solution for their heating and cooling needs. The cost and environmental benefits are well known, but it can be difficult to decide which technology works best for your business situation – should you opt for an air, ground or water source heat pump?

Cost, space and the physical arrangement of your premises are all factors to consider, and an air source heat pump is the best option for any UK business regarding all three. Read on to see how can an air source heat pump can help you get the most out of your system:

Space efficiency

Many businesses are located in office blocks or business parks and don’t own the land around them, or else that land is unavailable or unsuitable for building work. A ground source pump requires extensive trenching in order to lay the pipe network underground and make the system operational. It’s also expensive, as it requires a large amount of manual work and can disrupt the normal operation of a site.

An air source pump can be installed in a very small area, or even on a roof or wall. It’s much more space efficient and allows even companies with no outside space to benefit.

Makes the most of resources

A water source heat pump requires quite specific conditions for you to make the most out of its heating and cooling potential. Not everyone has a handy body of water nearby in which to install a pump, or the time or money to acquire the necessary planning permissions.

In contrast, an air source pump for heating and cooling can be used by anyone with access to the outside, and you can actually use its location to your advantage, rather than it being a hinderance – direct sunlight increases the pump’s performance when heating, which saves time and money.

As the most accessible and easiest to install for a business large or small, air source is the obvious choice. If you want to find out more about how an air source heat pump could benefit your business, get in touch with us at I-HT Air Conditioning today.

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!
