Heat Pump Air2Water

  • Air-to-water heat pumps take heat from the outside air and feed it into your wet central heating system. They’re most suitable for larger radiators or water underfloor heating because the heat they produce is cooler than that from a conventional gas or oil boiler. To be most effective they need a large surface area to release the heat.

Heat Pump Air2Air

Air to air heat pumps are installed on the outside of the home and effectively absorb heat from the outside air and then pump it back into your home using a fan system, hence the name “air to air”.

Quick fact: often air to air heat pumps are simply referred to as “air conditioning”.

The major advantage of this system is that it can also run in reverse e.g. it can absorb heat from the inside air of your premises and pump it outside, which is very useful during warmer the summer months


Heat Pump Water2Water

Water source heat pumps (WSHP’s) are a remarkably efficient renewable energy solution that can reliably provide your property with year round heating, given access to a body of water. With perhaps some of the highest efficiency ratings of any energy system, a WSHP can typically achieve 300% to 600% efficiency, meaning that every 1kW of energy used, will get you 3kW to 6kW of heat energy. 

LEV and Mechanical Ventilation

Every year, thousands of people in Great Britain die of lung disease or get asthma
because of airborne contaminants they have breathed in at work. If your work
produces dust (eg flour dust in bakeries), mist (eg paint mist from spraying), fume
(eg from welding), gas (eg carbon monoxide from furnaces) or vapour (eg solvents
from painting), there may be a risk to the health of your employees.
