About Heat Pumps
Ecotec heat pumps extract heat from low temperature renewable sources such as air, the ground or from available water sources. Our heat pumps are unique because of their ability to upgrade low temperature heat to usable heat.
What is usable heat?
Low temperature heat sources are naturally found in the air that we breathe and just below the surface of the ground. The sun, rainfall, and the temperature of the earth continually replenish these natural sources of heat. It never ends!
Usable heat is the heat that we all need to keep warm in the winter and create hot water, which can be used to wash, bathe or utilise in commercial and industrial applications. Ecotec heat pumps can produce hot water at a temperature of over 60°C, making them unique in the UK.
Our heat pumps utilise the inexhaustible energy resources in the air and the ground below our feet. These resources regenerate themselves through solar irradiation, rainfall and the earths heat. The supply of this energy is free and the potential to harness and use this energy is limitless.
Every single square metre of the earth surface receives 1100 to 1200kW of solar energy each year, Ecotec heat pumps utilise this free energy to maximum effect, and with an extremely high degree of efficiency.
Our heat pumps will not eliminate the use of electrical energy but we will reduce your usage by a significant amount. Typically every one unit of electrical energy used extracts three to four free units of environmental energy. This means that three quarters of the useful heat produced costs nothing at all!
Ecotec heat pumps are all engineered and specifically designed to cope with the UK climate to provide you with many years of reliable, trouble-free heating comfort and hot water.
Heat pumps create usable heat that can be used for domestic or commercial applications. We supply heat pumps from 4kW up to 75kW, which means that we can provide a heat pump solution to whatever requirement you may have.
There are two types of heat pump available from Ecotec Renewable Energy, Air Source heat pumps and Ground Source heat pumps. For more detailed information about each option click below:
