Commercial Air Source Heat Pumps
REC Renewable Energy provides complete commercial air source heat pump design, feasibility assessment and installation with the ability to fully coordinate all commercial air source heat pumps with existing energy services.
REC Renewable Energy are able to utilise the commercial air source heat pump's forced convection to either absorb or reject heat to the atmosphere. This process is achieved through the use of a fan and heat exchanger where energy is either extracted or rejected to the heat exchanger and used to effect a temperature change.
REC provides design and installation of a variety of commercial air source heat pumps:
Air-to-Water Heat Pumps
Air-to-water heat pumps use the air to heat a wet central heating system.
The system usually includes a single external unit to absorb heat from outside air temperatures. This heat is then transferred to an internal unit using the refrigeration cycle to transfer heat into a wet central heating and hot water system.
Air-to-Air Heat Pumps
Traditionally recognised as heating and cooling air conditioning units, this system provides excellent heating solutions for commercial offices and properties with no wet central heating system in place.
Operating through collection of heat from outside air temperatures using internal or external units, before transferring the heat via an air distribution system. External units can be used to heat commercial properties and also work alongside, or integrate with existing air conditioning systems.
Commercial heat recovery systems can facilitate either of the above functions but achieves the required output through the sourcing of warm air from indoor spaces with too much excess heat. Most commonly used in areas with a large solar exposure, used for heating hot water or heating systems.
Commercial air source heat pump installation depends on the type and scale of the design and installation. For more information on commercial air source heat pumps or to discuss a renewable energy project contact your local REC office or contact us online.
