Heat pump is the device that takes advantage of the ambient temperature difference and indoor space can cool or heat the interior of the building.
Most importantly, with regard to the economy, it is that in conjunction with the installation of photovoltaic systems as a self-producer (net metering) can zero the current cost!
According to a study and research by the National Technical University of Athens, heat pumps offer economy: 33% from pellets, 44% from closed energy fireplaces, 38-45% from natural gas, 61% from oil and 71% from electrification .
At the same time, heat pumps contribute to the protection of the environment, as opposed to the other heating devices (fireplaces, stoves, wood pellets) do not produce smog, endangering people’s lives.
It is noted that heat pumps can be placed in both new and old buildings. In any case, a detailed study is needed to find out which one is best suited to the needs of the consumer’s home.
Why should one choose the heat pumps?
– High yield with COP 3 – 6.5
– Ease of use
– Small space required
– Combined with existing radiator facilities
– Ability to use with hybrid assisted systems, e.g. solar systems, energy fireplace.
– Minimum maintenance
– Does not produce exhaust gas (directly)
This is an easy-to-install, ecological investment that delivers.
What the consumer should be aware of when choosing a heat pump
– Be a genuine pump, ie monoblock (like large units) and not split (such as air conditioners).
– It does not have an inverter, which, unlike the air conditioners, causes more consumption than the same inverter-free pump, which due to the large volume of water does not have frequent starts that cause an increase in consumption.
– Produce a water temperature of more than 60 ° C
– Have a performance certificate (COP) from an independent certified laboratory and not a simple statement or a manufacturer’s brochure.
– Available from a company that provides full technical support (installation, service, spare parts) and not from department stores or dealers, since the product requires installation similar to a boiler.
– To be accompanied by a written guarantee of the final product.
