FAQs

What are the benefits of Heat Pumps relative to other forms of heating?
Heat pumps are both economical and environmentally friendly. Given a COP (Coefficient of Performance) of up to 5 they produce up to 5 times more heat than traditional heating methods. In addition they can be used every season for both your heating and cooling needs.

Heat pumps are safe for children and the elderly because they produce low density heat as opposed to fireplaces or electric heaters.

They do not emit CO2 into the atmosphere and as such are friendly to the environment. Also they use ozone friendly refrigerants.

Finally they are easy to install and easy to use.

What
size Heat Pump do I need?

Each home space or work place is unique, which means that each project has unique system requirements and design. It is essential that a detailed study is performed including an accurate estimation of the heat that you need during the winter months, and the heat that you need to be expelled from your home during the warmer months.

This can be undertaken by AQUATHERMAL’s qualified installers.


What is considered when determining the size of Heat Pump suitable for me?

The amount of heating required is influenced by the potential for heat loss through doors, windows and roofs. Of course, efficient insulation minimizes this loss and hence, requires a smaller heat pump. The size of the area is also important as is the position of the windows (southward facing or northward facing). If the windows are facing the sun then less heating is required and vice versa.


Will my Heat Pump take up a lot of room and is it ugly?

Heat pumps are installed in a discreet location so that they are non-intrusive on your living or working space. They have exceptionally low noise levels for the same reason.

Heat pumps are divided into sub-categories as dependent on the source from which they pump heat and where they distribute the heat. The most common heat pump types are:

 -air-to-air: they pump heat from the atmosphere and produce heat or cold air, as per an air conditions function
