HEAT PUMPS

Heat pumps are thermal machines capable of transferring thermal energy from a lower temperature source to a higher temperature source, using different forms of energy, generally mechanical. There are 2 types of air heat pumps; the most common is the "air-air" one, which extracts heat from the air and pours it into or out of a building, depending on the season; then follows that "air-water", which is used in environments with the water distribution of heat (this second solution is however rarer).

The heat pump is able to satisfy all the needs of air conditioning and heating in an environment, guaranteeing the comfort and well-being of those who live or work there. In fact, the heat pump is a machine capable of transferring energy from a low temperature environment to a higher temperature system. With the same procedure through which a pump raises a fluid from a lower level to a higher one, the heat pump, using a single system, allows the cooling and heating of the environments of a home or an office or a commercial establishment , besides producing the sanitary hot water necessary for the daily requirement.

The heat pump system is therefore able to satisfy all the needs of air conditioning and heating in an environment, guaranteeing the comfort and well-being of those who work with us. It is a technology that contributes to environmental sustainability and the reduction of energy consumption, with an economic saving in the bill and a return on investment in the short term, also thanks to government incentives and the benefits that can be enjoyed. It can be said that, from the energy point of view, the process based on the heat pump always pays off: the energy that is obtained is always higher than the one used!

Moreover, a heat pump system allows to increase the economic value of a building as it contributes to increasing its energy class.
