Renewable Energy Supplies are air source heat pumps installers and provide a complete consult, design, installation and maintenance service for heat pumps, which are energy saving devices that use a refrigerant to absorb heat from the outside air or ground which can then be used to heat a building or the hot water system within the building. Heats pumps reduce the need to use traditional fuels to heat the water or building including electricity and gas and therefore reduces the carbon footprint of the building operator.
For every unit of electricity used to power a heat pump, up to 3 to 5 units of heat can be made available. Heat pump installations can also be certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) to allow end users and building operators to qualify for UK government grants and incentives.
Synchronised Power provides a complete project management service for heat pump installations including surveys, design, installation and maintenance. Our heat pumps are installed by manufacturer certified engineers to ensure full coverage under the manufacturer’s warranty.
Air source heat pumps help to transfer heat from the outside air into a building. There are two types of air source heat pump including:
Air-to-water heat pumps have a high seasonal Co-efficient of Performance (sCOP) at 3:1 meaning that for every 1kW of electrical power input, the heat pump can have generated 3kW of heat output. This type of heat pump can also work at below zero temperatures (typically as low as -20°C) and provide up to 80°C of heat. Heat pumps can be grouped into:
Low temperature air source heat pimps are three-to-five more efficient than traditional heating systems using fossil fuels and electricity and have minimal maintenance requirements. The air pumps operate from 25-50°C. Key to their efficient operation is to ensure that all the associated heat emitters are correctly sized to ensure they provide enough heat to overcome losses.
The radiators used with a low temperature air source heat pump will feel warm and should not be scolding hot making them safer for environments with children or the elderly. For optimal performance an under-floor or fan-coil heating system is recommended. Low temperature air source heat pumps can be used in conjunction with other renewable technologies including solar thermal panels.
Air source heat pumps capture thermal energy in the air, the majority of which comes from the sun warming our atmosphere and the outer layer of the earth’s crust. In one year the sun emits 50 times more energy than the total energy consumed on earth.
Heat pumps are electrically powered and are highly energy efficient devices. They only need one heat source, the outside air, two heat exchanges (one to absorb and one to release heat). The heat pump extracts energy and increases its temperature and then released it into a medium such as the water running into radiators, underfloor heating or fan coils.
An essential part of a heat pump is its compressor. As the refrigerant passes through the evaporator and extracts heat, it is compressed into a gas. As the gas is compressed its temperature rises. The second heat exchanger acts as a condenser and as it is at a lower temperature the gas releases its heat.
Please contact the Renewable Energy Supplies for your heat pump installation. We can provide a site survey, proposal including finance and payback calculations, installation and maintenance contracts for North Wales’s domestic, commercial and industrial installations. We have installer engineers across North Wales covering Anglesey (Bangor depot), Clwyd, Conwy (Llandudno depot), Denbighshire (Prestatyn depot), Flintshire (Mold depot), Gwynedd and Wrexham borough counties.
