When we think of air conditioning most of us immediately think of hot, summer days when the sun is shining and we switch it on to cool us down. However, most people do not realise that this can provide an economical source of heating in the winter.
On an average heat pump, air conditioning produces between 3-4kw of heat for every 1kw of power that they use, making this technology a very cost effective way of heating domestic, commercial or industrial premises.
Standard electric heaters are “direct element heaters” which work through a process in which elements heat up when an electric current passes through them. While these heaters are 100% efficient in that they do not waste any energy, they only produce 1kW of heat for every 1kW of power that they use[i].
Most modern/refurbished properties use heat pump air systems as their sole means of heating thereby eliminating the requirement for a traditional wet system (radiators/boilers).
