Today We are going to talk about one of the most efficient systems for producing heating, cooling and hot water in the home. It is the heat pump, a generator capable of recovering and providing the home with a large amount of renewable energy and therefore free of charge. The outside air, even when it’s cold, can be used to heat or cool your home. It may seem strange, but did you know that calories in the air are a natural source of energy to generate heat? This renewable energy is known as aerothermal energy.
Air represents a mass with enormous energy potential, it is an energy that is available for everything. This energy is present in nature and is free of charge, but we must have equipment that is capable of recovering this energy and transferring it into our homes.
In APlus Group, we are a company dedicated to aerothermal installations and pre-installations. Our specialized installers, with more than 10 years of experience in the sector, guarantee the correct conditions and finishes of any aerothermal installation. APlus Group is a company that has the best aerothermal installers in Elche and Alicante, and always at the best prices.
Read on and then we will explain everything related to this great method of air conditioning.
Aerothermal energy is an air-conditioning system based on a machine that steals heat from inside the house and takes it outdoors, in the event that we want to produce cold in summer, or in the opposite case, it steals heat from outside and puts it inside our house if we want to produce heat in winter.
It is a technology that mainly uses the energy of the air to air-condition the spaces, or in other words, it is an energy from renewable sources that takes advantage of and uses the heat in the air to later use it in systems of refrigeration, heating and hot water production. The use of aerothermal energy can result in savings of between 75% and 80%.
A heat pump is a new generation heat generator that, in addition to producing heating and hot water, is capable of cooling a home in summer, i.e., it is a 3-in-1 air conditioning system. Most aerothermal heat pump equipment produces both cold and hot air.
The performance of heat pumps, always marked by the Coefficient Of Performance (COP), is usually higher than 2.5, even up to 4 or 5, and to understand, for each kilowatt (kW) of electricity consumed we can obtain up to 3 kilowatts (kW) thermal, a data that reflects that are very efficient equipment with which we can save a lot of energy.
Typically, this type of pump features Inverter technology, much better known among users of refrigeration and heating systems, which allows for a compressor that adapts to the climate that the user needs. With this system our aerothermal equipment does not need to stop and start in order to maintain the temperature in the rooms of the house.
It consists mainly of two elements, the thermodynamic unit and the hydraulic module. The thermodynamic unit is located outside the house as if it were a traditional air-conditioning system, and it is in charge of recovering the energy contained in the surrounding air, even at negative temperatures, by means of an inverse refrigeration cycle, and this energy will be sent to a hydraulic module that is generally installed inside the house, so that it can be transferred to a heating circuit such as a floor heating system or low temperature emitters. We can also use the energy we have recovered to heat a hot water tank.
The aerothermal heat pump is a system of very easy installation and also very fast. Simply connect the hydraulic module to the outdoor unit. In addition, as a great advantage of this type of system, it does not require any kind of connection to the chimney or gas outlet or evacuation, reducing the architectural impact of the house.
The aerothermal equipment occupies more or less what a wall-type boiler would occupy. The installation time, depending on the size of the house and the amount of equipment to be installed, is usually about 3 to 4 days (engine room).
We recommend installation by qualified and expert personnel, for any questions, you can use our contact form, located at the beginning of this article, or by phone.
They are equipment that do not need to burn fuel to generate energy so the yields they offer are very high, on average 400%. This means that, to generate 4kw of thermal power, the heat pump will consume 1kw of electricity, obtaining 3kw of free thermal power from the outside, as we have already mentioned. This saves a lot of energy compared to traditional air-conditioning systems.
Leaving aside the great savings, the heat pump offers us more advantages, for example, safety for the family, since there is no fireplace or fuel inside the home. A single energy bill, the total guarantee of energy supply as it is constantly connected to the electricity grid and virtually no maintenance.
The payback period of an aerothermic installation is very short in comparison with its useful life, between 3 years and 4 years, being another great advantage of this type of system. The installation system, as we mentioned, is simple, so it is recommended for both new construction and renovations. In addition, the reduced space is another great advantage when installing in any type of home.
Currently, it is one of the most ecological systems we can find on the market. Aerothermal energy is a stagnant system, that is, the fluid is always kept in the equipment circuit, avoiding any type of leakage. If we add this to the fact that it does not require diesel oil or pellets to produce combustion, avoiding the production of polluting gases, it becomes one of the most beneficial systems for our health and for the environment.
The price of aerothermal energy is variable. It depends on the brand that we select for our installation, in addition, we must take into account the meters of our home, then we must assess the power needed to air-condition the home, the place where the equipment is installed, the type of installation we want to feed….
The cheapest aerothermal equipment that we can find in the market has a price of around 2.500€. To this price should be added the cost of the installation, which varies according to the conditions mentioned above and the difficulty of the same.
