Heatserve has vast experience in retro fitting heat pumps and has been doing so for the last 15 years, we will carry out a full house assessment to ascertain if installing a heat pump will be beneficial to you or not, if your home is not currently at the levels of air tightness or insulation levels, we will provide you with details of how to reduce your heat loss to a suitable standard too successively install a heat pump. We will organise your initial SEAI technical assessment right through too sign off of works completion for grant purposes.
How it works
In an air source heat pump, outside air is drawn over the evaporator. The refrigerant absorbs heat from the air and changes from a liquid to a vapour.
The refrigerant then passes through a compressor, increasing the pressure and consequently the temperature of the vapour. This higher temperature is now suitable for domestic heating
The higher temperature refrigerant then passes through the condenser heat exchanger, transferring heat to the heating system. With the heat now removed, the refrigerant returns to liquid. The liquid refrigerant then passes through the expansion valve, returning the refrigerant to its original state ready to repeat the cycle. A heat pump typically consists of four main components; evaporator, compressor, condenser and expansion valve.
