What are air-to-water heat pumps?
Air-to-water heat pumps extract and transfer heat from outdoor air to a water-based circuit. The heat can be used to provide hot water for the entire home or heat rooms. Air to water heat pumps falls under the air source heating technology category.
For maximum results, this kind of heat pump needs a temperate environment. The effectiveness of the pumps is highest at 7°C, instead of cold and dry places where outdoor temperatures drop below -20°C. The pump’s operating efficiency will decrease as temperatures drop.
For regions that get extremely cold in winter, ground source heat pumps may appear like a better option in regions that get extremely cold in winter. However, technological advancements in cold environment heat pumps based on the air-to-water concept are said to be effective even when temperatures drop as low as -20 degrees Celsius.
The right air-to-water heat pump will depend on the needs of your premise. Even though they are prevalent in the retrofit sector, these pumps are also ideal for new construction.
Air to water heat pumps offered by SPRSUN include hot water heat pumps, EVI low, and DC inverters such as mono-block and split types.
Why choose air-to-water heat pumps?
Heat pumps are critical to the world’s objective of reaching it in the next 30 years, and millions are expected to be manufactured and deployed by then. Air source heat pumps are increasingly the most commonly used type of heat pumps. The benefits of air to water heat pumps include:
Reducing Carbon Emissions
You can cut your carbon footprint in half by deploying an air-to-water heat pump. Even though air-to-water heat pumps are powered by electricity, they mostly use renewable green energy. They draw in low-quality air, move it through the system, and produce your home’s ideal degrees of heating and even hot water if you need it.
Low Electricity Bills
Initially, the cost of buying and installing heat pumps may appear to be a significant expenditure. In fact, the price range for a complete heat pump installation is between $3,500 and $18,975. This may lead one to wonder if they are worthwhile. However, with time, you will be able to recover all your money plus some.
However, the dollars you invest in the purchase and installation will return. Your premises will be more comfortable, and your electricity expenses will be lower during the first year after installation.
Air to water heat pumps need just a little electricity and have high coefficients of performance (COP). When the outdoor temperature is 7 degrees, a standard ASHP runs at 3.2 COP, meaning its efficiency is above 320%. It is best for you if your pump’s COP is higher.
With high COP, you won’t have to stress how your pump works because it will run effectively throughout the year. Air to water heat pumps are a wonderful addition to a premise because they are effective in hot and cold weather.
Air to water heat pumps do not require a lot of maintenance and repairs. They are among the low-maintenance heat pumps available. You can remain confident that you will get value for money now and in the future because these pumps last longer than most pumps on the market.
It works in cold temperatures.
Thanks to advancements in air-to-water heat pump technology, you can meet your heating needs even in temperatures as low as -25°C.
Purchase and Installation Incentives
Most governments have grants in place to encourage homeowners to install air-source heat pumps instead of gas boilers. If you are looking to install these heat pumps, check with your local government for green energy incentives and subsidy programs.
Air to water heat pumps are great low-carbon heating systems that produce heat for space heating and hot water needs from ambient air. The cost of installing an air to water heat pump is determined by the size and kind of pump, the size of your facilities, and your annual energy consumption.
The initial expense is typically substantial, but the long-term savings make up for it. Visit our products page or contact a professional via [email protected] for more details about air to water heat pumps.
