How does a heat pump work? 

The purpose of a heat pump is to extract thermal energy from naturally available heat sources, such as air, water or the ground. The very way the pump works is by harnessing the energy load from the environment, exchanging it and transporting it further, through the use of a working medium.

Basic scheme of operation: 

  • heat generation, 
  • Heat extraction from the working medium, 
  • use of the heat generated. 

Heat pumps are divided into:  

  • airborne, 
  • watery, 
  • ground. 

The different heat pumps differ in the way they extract heat and the type of refrigerant that is used to convert it. The most common refrigerant is R32 and the more environmentally friendly R290 and R744. 

Application of heat pumps

Heat pumps are primarily used for domestic or domestic water heating. Their undoubted advantage is that they can be integrated with underfloor heating and radiators. As an alternative to traditional heating systems, heat pumps are steadily gaining in popularity. In urban and suburban areas, this solution is most common. The renewable energy industry continues to grow and the increasing popularity of this solution is resulting in an increased demand for qualified consultants and installers.
