Air-air heatpumps are fantastic energy-savers. Put in one unit of electricity and get up to five times as much output in the form of heat – hard to believe, but true.

heat pump airflow

The warm air spreads around the house if the doors are open.

Works on the same principle as “Geothermal” heat pumps, but quick and easy to install. No digging up the garden and no drilling in the ground. It simply uses the exterior air.
Ideal for the relatively mild Irish winters. Tens of thousands of these air-air heatpumps are installed in Sweden where the climate is much
Ideally suited to replace energy thirsty storage heaters in homes, offices, shops, workshops. Simple installation with a box on the outside containing the compressor, two pipes to the inside unit that blows the heat around the interior.

COP  (Coefficient Of Performance) is a measure of the relation between energy input (how much electricity it use) and the amount of heat it produces. The higher value – the better.

In the summer the unit can be used for cooling. If the unit is installed on the ground floor it can heat the upstairs because warm air will rise – but it can not cool the upstairs because cold air will sink.

Plus:

  • Cheap and quick to install
  • Very low running costs

Minus:

  • Only heats one open space
  • Does not heat the domestic hot water
  • Have to be replaced after its 10-15 years life-span

Air-water heatpumps are quickly becoming the normal system for heating of new houses in Ireland. Many alternative brands are available. The source of heat is simply the outside air. No drilling in the ground, no massive excavation for laying pipes in the ground. This makes sense in the mild Irish climate. In highly insulated Scandinavian Homes houses heat-pumps like this are used only in larger houses.

There are primarily two types of air-water heatpumps. The split unit with the evaporator outside and the condenser inside. The inside part is often integrated with a tank located in the utility room. Copper pipes lead the refrigerant from inside to out and back again.

The other type is called mono-bloc with both condenser and evaporator combined in one box located on the outside.  Hot water is pumped from outside to an inside tank and to the floor heat.

Plus:

  • Delivers any amount of hot water year around.
  • Completely automatic and very convenient.
  • Extremely low running costs .
  • No fluepipe or chimney to sweep and clean.

Minus:

  • Dependent on electricity compared to a stove
  • The actual heat pump needs to be replaced after 10-20 years. The floor-heating pipes in the distribution system has a longer life-expectancy.
